    Grand, Old Psychos | Truthout


    In 2007, after four years of disastrous war planning in Iraq and the institution of an admitted and obvious global torture regime, 71 percent of Republicans still supported an attack on Iran to prevent that country from obtaining nuclear weapons.

    In early October 2008, at multiple McCain/Palin rallies, audience members screamed, "terrorist," "treason" and "kill him" when then-Sen. Barack Obama was mentioned. Civil rights hero and Congressman John Lewis chided the McCain campaign:


    "George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and condition that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who desired to exercise their constitutional right."

    The following week, after correcting a supporter who accused Senator Obama of being an Arab, McCain was summarily booed by the crowd for claiming the Obama was a decent family man.

    One can see this in the hate routinely displayed here. It is a sad thing when a political party creates a climate of hate in hopes of gaining votes.

    In early 2009 in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Tennessee, (all states that voted more heavily Republican in 2008 than in 2004), homicides increased. They decreased in almost all the major cities across the country. In April of 2009, a report from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI detailed the rise in right-wing extremism due in part to economic uncertainty and the election of the nation's first African-American president. The report concluded that "lone wolves and small terrorist cells embracing violent right wing extremist ideology are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat to the United States." One month later, Dr. George Tiller, an abortion provider in Kansas, was gunned down in the entrance of his church by anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder, who had connections to "Operation Rescue" a radical "right-to-life" group. Less than a year later, in Austin, Texas, Andrew Joseph Stack flew a small plane into a building containing IRS offices - killing himself and one other. He left behind a note ranting against the government and the tax structure.

    Lack of civility? Read your own posts. You've come here...once again...and start a string where you accuse Republicans of being "bad people" because you don't agree with their politics and then call for "civility". Are you REALLY that clueless?

    Your party set their minds on violent speach and ONLY stopped when it lsot them votes after a Democratic congresswoman ended up with a bullet in her head.

    Your party denied all the evidence and used the violent talk right up until it didnt win them votes anymore.

    They still deny the bullet in the womans head had anying to do with them.


    Your party has a insane denial of what violent speach creates.

    If your party wins it will start again.

    They will cheer death right in TV like it makes them proud and happy.

    That is not a good quality for someone in power.

    Obama is a master of it with the Class Envy/Warfare he's launched for his campaign theme.

    Who? How about Jeremiah Wright, William Ayres, Van Jones? Shall I go on? Malik Zulu Shabazz, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Diane Watson?

    How about those cities with higher murder rates? Aren't just about all of them run by Democrats? Have you no integrity at all?

    The present Administration doesn't want this coming election to be about competence and who has a plan to fix the economy. They lose that argument hands down so they've chosen to make this election about "racism" and "class envy". Anyone who opposes President Obama's agenda does so not because he's proposed things that hurt America...they do so because they hate that a black man is in the Oval Office. If you don't vote Barry to a second term...then you support racism!!! Anyone who points out that even liberal Keynesian economists like Christina Romer have come out and said it's not a good idea to raise taxes on ANYONE in a weak economy will be accused of protecting the rich and hating the poor. You MUST reelect Barry because if you don't then you hate the poor as well!!!

    That's the message you'll be getting for the next eight months. You SHOULD be getting a message about plans to fix the economy and create jobs but this Administration ran out of ideas on how to do that about a year into their first term and have given us a steady diet of "obstructionism" is why we can't get anything done ever since. What's most amusing about that narrative is that if Republicans "hadn't" won back the House and stopped things like Cap & Trade and Card Check legislation the economy would be in even worse shape now than it is and more people would be out of work. "Obstructionism" is what has finally allowed the economy to start to grow again albeit slowly. Just think what might happen if we had someone in the Oval Office with a real plan going forward and if businesses no longer had to worry about looming EPA crackdowns and lawsuits from the Holder Department of Justice! That's your choice, Kiddies...four more years of excuses why things aren't getting done or someone in the White House with a plan to get them done.
