This is why conservative hate propaganda is so corrosive to our national discourse. We are a country given over to sheer, blind, unreasoning hatred, incapable of discussion and compromise. No matter how big we are, no matter how big our military is, we are a failed experiment. There is no place for wise people in our national government. They wouldn’t be allowed to have any influence anyway.
Hope for the world, if there is any, lies elsewhere.
More than a third of Americans don’t think President Obama loves America, according to a new survey.
Less than half of adults, 47 percent, said the president loves his country, while 35 percent said he doesn’t and 17 percent weren’t sure, according to a Huffington Post/YouGov poll released this week.
[…] The poll was conducted amid furor last week over former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comment during a dinner in Manhattan that “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”
Imagine the reaction of right wingers if Barack Obama said he was ashamed of America.
Obama has never said that… but John McCain has.
This morning John McCain said, on national television, that he was ashamed of his country.
You have to wonder about right wingers who claim that terrorists attack because they think President Obama is “weak.” (Never mind that it was a “weak” Obama who actually took out Osama bin Laden.)
If these Republicans REALLY think that’s why terrorists attack, then why are they feeding into it? If they REALLY cared, don’t you think they’d go on TV and talk about how our president is strong, even if they didn’t believe it?
So, obviously, we can only conclude these right wingers WANT terrorists to attack.
Hillary Clinton had a private meeting with Elizabeth Warren in December and allegedly sought Warren’s favor.
The two met at Whitehaven, the Clintons’ Northwest Washington home, without aides and at Mrs. Clinton’s invitation.
Mrs. Clinton solicited policy ideas and suggestions from Ms. Warren, according to a Democrat briefed on the meeting, who called it “cordial and productive.” Mrs. Clinton, who has been seeking advice from a range of scholars, advocates and officials, did not ask Ms. Warren to consider endorsing her likely presidential candidacy. Aides to Mrs. Clinton did not immediately respond to requests for comment, and aides to Ms. Warren could not be reached.

Ted Cruz is complaining that Obama is helping the rich too much.
Wait a minute, I thought Obama was a SOCIALIST. I kept hearing from Cruz and the other teabaggers socialist dictator Obama was taking money from the hard working rich people and giving it to the poor moochers, “redistribution of wealth” and all that. Now Cruz is complaining that it’s actually the other way around?
Can someone PLEASE help me make sense of Ted Cruz?
