I don't get it. Is that funny to Republicans? Maybe it just doesn't make sense to me because I've never heard anyone use "my heart bleeds for you" in a non-sarcastic sense.

I assume it's funny for Republicans? Maybe they mean the substitution as "my X heart Y for you" instead of "my X heart bleeds for you"? (I think "My heart beats for you" is one I've heard before). The funny part for me is that they had the thing up at all.

Oh yes, I get why you find it funny, and why it's a play on Valentine's cards, but I'm still think it's quite puzzling. I mean, to me it looks like Republicans dislike Obama, so Republicans makes a poster of Obama sarcastically saying "my heart bleeds for you", which presumably he would only say to some whiny Republican, yet the Republicans find this hilarious.

I agree with you that it's funny they had it up, but I can't LOL until I have some clue into their motives. I'm weird like that. :)

On ninth thought, perhaps I am attributing too much depth to the RNC members and they didn't bother to think beyond "bleeding heart liberal" and "Valentine's satire". I do tend to overestimate strangers.

That's what I wondered too. I looked at the others on the site. Given the level of sophistication of the others, I think this one is in theory funny because Liberal is a dirty word to some people.

My only other interpretation of this one was a sweet sentiment of If I were a liberal, my heard would bleed for [Obama]. But no, I think it's just a sad attempt at humor.

Well it's clearly meant as propaganda, i think they imagine that republicans will interpret it as Obama saying it to them, and the sarcastic tone will piss them off and make them feel justified in hating him. Of course it's not likely to have much of an effect on anyone who isn't already pretty conservative, since those of us who agree with Obama imagine him saying it to someone like them and laugh :)

In fact looking though the others on the site none of them are likely to convince anyone of anything they didn't already agree with. Looks like it's just another republican exercise in stoking the fires of hate.
