When Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell openly admitted his top political priority was denying President Obama a second term, there was no side note about spending the next four years working with the president to create jobs, balance the budget, or end costly wars - a feat that might convince American voters to oust the 2012 incumbent in favor of a worthy conservative. He just wants to make the president's four years final even if he's the right man for the job, and judging what he's up against, he is.
The continuous fighting between the GOP candidates and the repulsive reactions from their supporters during the debates and rallies says it all: Gingrich calls Obama the Food Stamp President, and people applaud. An old fart, KKK carrying card member at a Santorum rally tells him she refuses to acknowledge Obama's presidency because it isn't legal. The crowd, ignoring Obama's birth certificate, cheers her on, and Santorum says nothing to correct her.
I get it now. How fucking naive I've been hoping that in this day and age we had evolved a little more than this. I thought the division in this country came down to our differences in political ideology. Blue versus red. But in this case, it's more like black versus white. This agenda is not about politics. It's about the color of Barack Obama's skin, and that color isn't white.
Why else did the birther issue begin? It wouldn't have happened if he were white. The lies about him being a devout Muslim? They wouldn't have happened if he were white. And who cares who he prays to anyway? It's none of our fucking business, but oh how the neoconservatives love to tell us it is. And their fake devotion to God is just there to pull votes from Bible beaters whose priorities seem to be who their leaders pray to, even when those leaders are awful. And this republican lineup? Really fucking awful.
This neoconservative agenda to remove Obama before 2012 by lying about his being an American citizen failed miserably due to a valid birth certificate. Those with slightly higher IQs moved onto Plans B & C while the dumber ones continue to work on the birth certificate, even today. Plan B, by the way, is a series of lies about Obama's successes that they hope you are stupid enough to believe, and Plan C is a set of distractions meant to keep you from noticing that while they carry out Plan B, Congress is not doing their job to help the people of this country.
Think it's not about him being black? Those of you who think Family Values are important may have recently decided to support Gingrich: A joke of a man who has cheated on two, probably three wives, leaving the first two when they were ill and needed him the most. He clearly places no value on the family unless that value is a public moment of anger to forward his campaign. Before you applaud him for his response to John King's question, remember that in 1998 he himself orchestrated a multimillion dollar ad campaign against Clinton for getting a blowjob from someone other than his wife. While pushing for Clinton's impeachment over the aforementioned hummer, he was having a full blown affair. I don't really care who my politicians have sex with as long as it's consensual and legal, but if you're the dick who publicly made a big deal out of someone else's affair, expect me to judge you when you prove yourself to be hypocritical. It's not just the media who loves to demonize political infidelities, Newt. One might say you fucking started it.
So if you actually care about Family Values in your president, ask yourself why President Obama, a man who actually loves his family, isn't good enough.
Those of you complaining about how high your taxes are may support Romney. Here's a man who has said he pays what he's legally obliged to pay, but spends more money than you see in a year on lobbyists who keep him from having to pay a higher percentage. That percentage, by the way, is lower than the percentage you pay. Do you understand? You pay a higher percentage of your income in taxes than Romney. A billionaire. And your taxes are high because they have to compensate for Romney and his ilk not paying their fair share. Your taxes will continue to be high while you protect billionaires from making a fair contribution. When you fight for lower taxes, I don't believe your realize your fight is for lower taxes for billionaires, not your own.
If Obama's attention to our military isn't to your liking, you've probably thanked Bush for the death of Bin Laden, because you are stupid. Really, really fucktarded stupid. Obama accomplished something we've all wanted since Baby Bush's first year in office. What part of our military do you feel is lacking under Obama?
So let's see. We have a president who loves his family, wants to lower your taxes by making billionaires pay their fare share of our civilized nation, took down Bin Laden, has contributed remarkably little to our deficit but increased it for the purpose of creating jobs for you and unemployed war veterans, is trying to get you the healthcare that you need, and you don't want him. Why? You claim he isn't your president because he isn't American, despite his birth certificate. Why? Just the fact that you went through the trouble to argue his validity as president... May I remind you that Baby Bush was not elected in 2000? That he stole it from Dole, who had way more votes? That blacks and Jews were prevented that election year from hitting the polls because it was clear who their majorities supported?
What's the real reason for Republicans not wanting President Obama over the four remaining and despicable men who want to take his place? What's your reason? Are you ballsy enough to admit the people you support are bigots? Or shall we just agree they have successfully brainwashed you? Because the facts are all there and you choose not to see it.
