    Michael Smerconish: Obama: Substance not Smears

    This election has always been a referendum on Barack Obama. For some, not on matters of substance. They can't have it both ways. It's hypocritical to distribute a vicious, false narrative about him while fancying yourself a patriot and a great American. Vilify a sitting president of the United States with fiction and innuendo, and you are neither.

    I objected when George W. Bush was the subject of undeserved hyperbolic criticism, but the baseless scorn heaped upon President Obama makes Bush's detractors look diplomatic. The president, the office, and our nation deserve better.

    It's been unrelenting. The day after Obama took office, Rush Limbaugh told Sean Hannity he wanted him to "fail." Later, Glenn Beck called the president a "racist" with a "deep-seated hatred of white people." Donald Trump's birtherism took hold while words like socialist were uttered with increased frequency. And a prairie fire of falsehoods spread through the Internet suggesting, among other things, that Obama is a Muslim or refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, paving the way for Dinesh D'Souza's fictionalized "documentary" 2016, which characterized Obama as fulfilling the anticolonial agenda of his father - a man he literally knew for just one weekend!

    Can you post pics of protestors with likenesses of Obama as Adolph Hitler? Can you post pics of him getting hung in effigy?
    No? Then don't even dare compare the treatment Obama has gotten to Bush.

    He gets the opposition he does because he is an arrogant piece of shit way above his pay grade whose crappy policies have brought nothing but death and misery for millions of Americans.

    People close to the Obama campaign pretty much called Romney a murderer.
    That has to show up in the equation somewhere I would hope.
    The Obama campaign and their partners MSNBC did their very best to smear Romney
    from day one ....

    So stop the bitching.
    This has been the most negative campaign ever I believe.
    And it comes from the most divisive President we have ever had.

    Obama called him a bullshitter. His campaign implied he was a felon and Harry Reid said he had evidence (never produced and now forgotten) that Romney had cheated on his taxes or somesuch.

    No Republican, not even Nixon, ever sank that low in any contest.

    Barack Obama came into office with unbelievably high approval ratings and majorities in the House and Senate. Two years later the electorate voted Democrats out of office in record numbers because they were so dissatisfied with what Obama's vague promises for "Hope & Change" turned out to be. Do Republicans loath him? Hell yes...but he's got himself to blame for that. He's blamed them for everything that went wrong before he took office and now he blames them for everything that hasn't happened SINCE he took office. Barry has never once said that he is to blame for ANYTHING. It's either W...or the Congress...or it's we the public not "grasping" his brilliance. He's a man that's been TOLD he was brilliant since he was in his mid twenties despite really never showing brilliance and now he believes that he's the smartest person in the room despite being clueless most of the time. If it wasn't our country he was running into the ground it would be humorous to observe.
