GOP Convention: Chris Matthews tees off on Reince Priebus – Tim Mak – POLITICO.com
This has been a fairly consistent theme by Republicans. It’s a political move, built on rhetoric and repetition, designed to push the indredibly destructive idea that Obama isn’t really American and secretly hates the country. The entire birther movement is predicated on this assumption about the current President.
The sad part is how well it resonates with low-information and low-intelligence voters who have no functioning political memory (I.e. Obama is European for passing a stimulus…but Bush’s stimuli were all fine and dandy...just like Paul Ryan said at the time). Further to this point, if anyone brings up something Bush did in the context of Obama, it’s always about “blaming Bush”…even if one is simply pointing out what happened and what was said sometime during history.
Many of the idiot brigade now openly claim that Obama was trying to hide his birth certificate and didn’t release it until 2011. That’s because they ignored him releasing it before the election in 2008.
One has to wonder if idiots, racists and Mormons will be enough to carry Romney in November. We shall see.
Update: Video segment.
BTW, note how as “evidence” Priebus cites the Political Lie of the Year, 2010.
That’s how bad it is…the point man for the GOP has a go to point…which is a lie…yet somehow it’s the guy pointing out he’s a liar that is the bad guy. That’s a broken culture, right there.
