The RNC reciter wrote: Still waiting for one of your Dems to address the stats I posted yesterday about your president. Got anything besides the silly name-calling?

SCVIndy: Interestingly enough, this statement is a ‘focus group tested’ slogan that is used by many conservatives at the sites I debate them.

They will state their opinions and when confronted with reality, keep asserting that you haven’t answered their question or in this case, rebuked their assertions. In other words, they just ‘IGNORE’ you.

But it’s good to keep in mind that this strategy is effective to ideology followers since without really defending an assertion with facts, it’s just ‘assumed’ that the reiteration of a recital is ‘all the proof required’!

Don’t believe me? Just check the polls.
