    as a dog whistle that Obama was the "other."  Black, muslim name, pall around with terrorists, scary black man.

    They used sophisticated methods to create racial fears, but failed.  

    The American people must wise up and rise up!

      these dog whistles work.   I think though that allowing a faction within their party to define them as scary radicals will ultimately be a huge mistake on their part.  

      Sometimes I don't even want to consider strategies anymore though.  It makes my soul hurt.  I just want to think in terms of doing what is right, doing the footwork and letting go of the results.  I think its called serenity.

      Take care as well.
