    In yesterday’s inaugural address, President Obama stated, “We cannot mistake absolutism for principle or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.” But Obama was not shy about discarding reasoned debate in favor of brutal name-calling in order to ram forward his agenda. According to Obama, Republicans who oppose his progressivism:

    •Don’t care about the elderly or the disabled: According to Obama, forcing a choice between “caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future” – also known as reality – is actually siding with a benighted past in which “twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn”;
    •Are selfish: If we worry about the future viability of programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, then we don’t want to “take the risks that make this country great”;
    •Hate science: If we don’t believe Obama’s version of climate change, then we “deny the overwhelming judgment of science”;
    •Are warmongers: Obama says that his agenda, and the agenda of the people, is opposed to “perpetual war”;
    •Hate black people: Said Obama of voter ID laws, “Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote”;
    •Hate immigrants: Obama set up a false choice between welcoming “the striving hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity” and “expell[ing] them from our country”;
    •Don’t care about kids: Those who oppose Obama’s gun control agenda don’t make children “know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm”;
    •Hate gays: Obama said that opposing same-sex marriage means we don’t believe in equality, since “if we are all truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal, as well”;
    •Are anarchists: Failing to buy into Obama’s agenda means that we don’t believe in roads, and think American soldiers “could have met the forces of fascism or communism with muskets and militias.”​

    He is an evil and deceitful man, but he keeps the free gubmint stuff coming to his peeps, so it is perfectly acceptable.
