Definitely need to throw this on a romantic playlist. I might propose with this playing in the background…

…what crime did Obama commit before he took office to be portrayed the way he was almost instantly by the hard right? What policies has he pursued that he didn’t fully explain and fight an election on? How is a bank bailout socialism when a Democrat continues it, but rescuing capitalism when a Republican initiates it? Why is a stimulus package anathema under Obama when it was fine under Bush? At no point did the Dems unite against Bush the way the GOP united against Obama in his first eighteen months; and at no point did they co-opt the language of extremists into their core message, as Palin and Cantor have.
