Right-wing name-callers

I think this sounds much more realistic:

“It is amazing how often the right-wing voters act so immature, react emotionally and resort to name-calling of people that disagree with their policies. The reason is because they have no answer to the failure of President Bush’s policies, except to blame Presidents Bill Clinton/Barack Obama and the Democrats and label people as hate-mongers or racists.

A lot of the right-wing voters are not successful in life. They are envious and jealous of others who have worked hard and are a success. Right-wing voters don’t consider themselves attractive and therefore show their immaturity by not being able to debate. They just resort to name-calling.

Right-wing voters watch Fox News only. They think because someone rants on that channel against liberals and everyone else besides right-wingers, that person should be treated as a hero. If you would rather not have your child influenced by an openly narrow-minded and homophobic person, right-wingers again resort to name-calling.

Right-wing voters always chime about liberals being takers not givers. Right-wing voters claim the majority of the country agrees with them against Obama’s policies, yet his approval rating is climbing. That doesn’t sound like a minority.

Right-wing voters are bigger hypocrites. There were never more hated and vile things said about a president than what was said about President Obama. But the right-wing voters claim that is freedom of speech and patriotic, while everyone else has to apologize for any criticism of the right.

The fact is, the right-wingers are what they are. If you disagree with them, they will call you unpleasant names.
