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’!

(Thom likes to use music intros on his show so I’m going to pick up on the habit and use them to end my post. In any event, the song is just something I listen to and I’ll try to pick them that have a ‘message’. They most likely won’t have anything per se to do with the post they are attached to . . . )
