I don't think that those people are as much a minority as you think.  I'm not saying they're the majority, but it's a sizable amount IMO.

I agree.  I know plenty of know nothings, who spout the most ignorant nonsense, and claim to be tea party.  Never underestimate how many dumb rednecks there are in this country.  Most of the intelligent people I know, who are interested in smaller govt claim to be libertarian.

There was just as much vitriol aimed at Bush as there is at Obama.

google death threats against the president. They're up 400% since 2008. So, fail.

There has been an 800% increase in militia-style "patriot" groups since Obama was elected in 2008, according to Project Censored.

I'm not fond of Earl Grey. It's got that strange flavoring in it. I usually drink green tea, oolong or kukicha. With no sugar.

That happens every time a Democrat is elected. It's not special to Obama.

So the number of people using Google daily has stayed stagnant since '08? Bullshit. Just look at the number of people with smartphones alone since '08.

You seem to have misunderstand the elder cat. The number has risen sharply, and he suggested you use google to verify his claim. It has nothing to down the google users or smartphones. It had to do with death threats against the President.

I don't know either way, but that's less than a year into his presidency. I'd want more data before I compare it to a full double term.
