Liberal Thinking

I was in McDonalds a few days ago and they had television sets all over the place. CNN was on with some story about Obama. The couple behind me started to talk about Obama. Here is the way the conversation went:

Wife: I like Obama.
Husband: Yeh!
Wife: I like him because he is modest.
Husband: Yeh!
Wife: I really like that about him.
Husband: Yeh!
Wife: That is why I’m going to vote for him.
Husband: Yeh!

At no time was there talk about the deficit, debt, jobless rate, foreclosures, stagnant economy, Solyndra, or other issues. The chief criteria for voting for Obama was simply that they thought he was “modest.” Not much of a reason to vote for a person.

I have found that conservatives are thinkers and liberals are feelers. The former know the issues while the latter vote based on superficial feelings. No wonder this nation is in trouble with elected officials.
