You know, I fully realize that politics goes in cycles and what party is popular one day is on the outs the next. President Obama is having some very difficult times right now, probably a little sooner that most pragmatists thought, but what's really difficult to watch are the people that the American public is turning to as an alternative.
Daily Kos sums it up real nicely in this paragraph from the above-notated post.
Via Media Matters, 31 House Republicans recently supported a resolution honoring today's accused felon. These scary freaks are heroes to a frightening conservative movement that reaches from militias and racists in every dark nook and cranny of the nation clear to the senior Republican leadership in the House and Senate. It's a movement that has been flirting with armed revolution and secession, disrupting political meetings in the tradition of the German Brown Shirts of the 1930s, and carrying semiautomatic rifles to town halls and Presidential addresses. The last time right-wing terrorist nuts were ignored two of them ending up blowing up a building in Oklahoma City and killed 168 innocent people including 19 children.While we all deserve to be a little disappointed in the ways things have gone this past year, perhaps we should pay a little more attention to where we are headed.
