Over Half of Republicans Believe The President isn’t an American

If He Wasn’t Born in the U.S. or Naturalized The President Must Be an Illegal Alien

Less than half of Republicans believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America, a new public opinion poll finds.

Only 42 percent of Republican respondents in a Research 2000 survey, conducted for the liberal website Daily Kos, said they thought Obama was a natural born citizen; 28 percent said they did not believe Obama was born in the United States; 30 percent said they were not sure.

Is Republican base just woefully ignorant? It doesn’t take a firm understanding of politics to answer that question. Anyone remember “drill baby drill”, the slogan of the 2008 RNC, even though drilling would have almost no effect on gas prices, ten years from now? I must say, while I find their race baiting abhorrent, I do enjoy watching this sinking ship. It looks the GOP’s tried and true ‘Southern Strategy” is finally backfiring. The Right must think independent voters are as stupid as they are.

Glenn Beck Calls Obama a Racist

“Has a Deep-Seated Hatred of White People”

Beck ignores that the President is half white; immediately contradicts himself. The GOP is obviously trying to stir up enough racial anxiety to try to make ground in 2010 elections. Of course it will rally the base, as they are mostly racist idiots, but will it work with independents? I doubt it.

To quote a friend: “What a lunatic.”

Blind Faith is the Path of the Righteous

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish mother stands accused of continuously starving her 3-year-old son over the course of his life time. The 15 pound toddler was admitted to a hospital for severe malnutrition, but while there, his devote mother can be seen on tape repeatedly removing a feeding tube from her near-death son. The mother claims the child is sick and that she isn’t responsible for his condition. This has lead to violent demonstrations in the streets of Jerusalem, where ultra-Orthodox Jews have gather to protest…wait for it… the treatment of the mother! Ignoring the video evidence (shocking, I know), the faithful have taken to the streets for three consecutive days massing at the hospital where the child is being treated and clashing with police. Her supporters refuse to believe the authorities claim that the mother is responsible. They probably blame demons, sex, arabs, bacon, someone serving fish and meat together, shell fish, or any and everything else NOT SEEN IN THE VIDEO!

GOP Candidate Suggests She will Turn to Violence to Achieve Political Means

In guns, Hypocrisy, kooks, republicans, treason, Violence on July 16, 2009 at 5:56 pm

Using Violence to Advance a Political Agenda, Don’t We Call That Terrorism?

“We have the chance to fight this battle at the ballot box before we have to resort to the bullet box… That’s the beauty of our 2nd Amend rights.”

– Catherine Crabill, the Republican Party’s nominee for Virginia’s 99th District in the House of Delegates

Sure, the violence rather than democracy school of thought may excite the Right’s base, but will it help them at all with the middle? I guess we will see in 2010. How can these people call themselves patriots? Imagine if a liberal called for violence against the government during the Bush years.

Also, this women believes the government had a role in the Oklahoma City Bombing. I’m sure she is a 9/11 truther also, but it is just too soon to publically admit that and still be elected to office. Virgina, be proud.

Wow, Mr. Beck sure is passionate about denying others health care. Could he sound any more insensitive? He won’t even let her talk. This is the American right, the rich get whatever they want, the rest of us are losers.

As long as he doesn’t pull the trigger he is without responsibility, right? What a joke. As always the hypocrisy will be lost on his followers.
