    I just heard that question posed on TV.

    A list was read off about what right wingers say about Obama.

    Then actions of the "real" Obama was compared to the Republican's "fictional" list.

    The audience laughed and laughed.

    But I think it's a fair question. Can Republican's run against a "fictional character"?

    Even the two Republicans on the show, "Buddy Roemer" and "Matt Lewis" admitted Republicans give no credit to Obama for anything.

    Why would Americans trust Republicans who just lie and lie?

    The Real Obama: record debt, deficits, poverty, unemployment, food stamps, killed US Manned space program and got us our first ever credit downgrade.

    Repubs don't have to make any fictional stuff up, the reality of Obama's time in office is plenty bad enough as it is.

    President Obama is such a loser that any liberal Democrat effort to portray him as an actual (qualified, capable) "leader" who is, supposedly, deserving of reelection MAKES President Obama a fictional character.

    So, yeah.

    I say the GOP has no choice but to run against the liberal Democrat fiction.

    See what I mean? They see only "skin deep". There is so much more to the truth.

    Democrats are the ones running a fictional character. Who else do the Republicans have to compete against?

    The only thing I learn from rdean's posts is that he is provided every thought, every opinion, every talking point by someone else.

    Hey, rdean, have you ever heard the quote "question, with boldness, even the very existence of God"? Thomas Jefferson said it. You should try it. It is remarkably liberating.... it will free you from partisan hackery.

    Since the Barack Obama that was elected in 2008 was in "essence" a fictional character then the Republicans can run against...and win against the real Obama and his very real record. This will not be a campaign of vague promises about "Hope" and "Change you can believe in"...this will be a campaign about the economy and who has a plan going forward to fix it and who doesn't. I'm sorry but Barack Obama hasn't had a plan to fix things since his stimulus didn't work back in 2009. For the past year and a half he's simply been hoping the economy would turn around on it's own if he didn't fuck with it too much with stupid policies.
