I get tired of hearing the Republican base blaming Obama for everything and refusing to credit him for the good he has accomplished. By base I mean the racist, women hating, poor are lazy, god fearing, gun nuts, and the psychotic crowd. The right wants Americans to think they are the righteous strength of the United States, but in fact they are pussies. Everything I’ve listed above they are afraid of. In fact, they are not the strength of this country, they are scared shitless. It’s how the Republicans win elections. They make their base of unenlightened voters into fearful Republican zombies so they’ll buy the same ideological crap every election. Nothing has changed in the Republican party in 50 years. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
So enter this intelligent thoughtful politician who challenges the status quot of Republican dogma and the fireworks begin. Throw in the fact that he is an African-American and all common sense is left at the train station without a ticket to sanity town. It’s not just enough for Republicans to make voters afraid of the policies of the left, now they have to make you afraid of the president or the boogeyman in chief.
The left feels as if they have to defend the president from these attacks, but often don’t. Defend him from what? The truth? Because the truth is Obama has been a damn good president which seems to get lost in all of this prick fighting.
