A recent Rasmussen poll seems to bear this out. According to Rasmussen, 21% of Americans support ACORN’s scheme to resist foreclosure by breaking, entering, and illegally occupying their foreclosed homes. That’s with in the 1-in-4 Americans margin-of-error. Nearly a third of Democrats are retards… but there’s nearly 25% of Republicans that may need to be fitted for crash helmets, too.
Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans oppose the ACORN strategy, as do 54% of adults not affiliated with either major political party. Democrats are closely divided, with 31% in favor of resisting the law and 35% opposed.
Some of this can be blamed on the MSM, who have taken great pains to portray ACORN’s poster children as victims instead of thieves who made grossly irresponsible financial decisions. The media have likewise painted all mortgagers … the people who were coerced into giving these deadbeats money… as moustache-twirling robber barons and villains.
I would argue that unquestioning acceptance of the MSM version of any event should make one eligible for a seat on the short bus anyway.
