When Obama won the Democratic nomination to run for President hardly anyone knew how bad the economy really was. Obama has had to deal with the worst Recession in history, two wars, baseless lies and attacks by the far right, the Tea Baggers and the Republican National Television Station (Fox News). This President has had more lies spread about him than any other President in history. Fox News followers believe every lie they spread and they spread them on thick.
I don’t believe Obama is perfect but if the lies perpetuated by the far right were not told as facts his approval rating would be much higher than it is now. Fox News and people like Rush Limbaugh are making millions by distorting the truth and outright lying. Fox News does not have any integrity; they will do or say anything to raise their ratings. If you have to spend millions advertising you’re fair and balanced you probably are not fair and balanced. It’s like a person who says he never lies, will he just told a lie and how can you believe anything else he says. It’s almost like they are trying mass hypnosis and if they repeat the lie over and over we will believe them. Many people who already want to see Obama fail eat this garbage up.
The Republicans are really in bad shape, they are leaderless and a bunch of hack jobs are filling in the vacuum. Sara Palin is trying to become a national figure because she loves attention. If John McCain hadn’t picked the Wasilla Witch (Palin) as a running mate we wouldn’t have to listen to this narcissist who is more concerned about getting attention than what is best for the country. I believe when McCain realized how bad the Bush Administration left the country so he picked Palin so he would lose. Now Palin is like a bad case of herpes that we just can’t get rid of. She is bucking the Republican establishment and is helping the Democrats more than the Republicans.
The results of the unjustified tactics of the far right have caused our country to decline. They have no ideas or plans; they are just the party of no. The Republican Party is completely useless to the middle class and the poor, they always have been. Our country cannot stand another Republican majority and survive as a great nation. We have to get the country out of a ditch and we that is not going to happen unless the Republican Party is taken back over by people who have brains, integrity and are normal instead of a bunch of crazy radicals.
