    that did it. That needs to be the message from Obama from here on out. They are trying to crash the economy. They are succeeding. Now we need to slap them silly(ier) with that message.

    Just doing my part to piss off the right wing smart ass comment at a time.

      destroy the country to destroy Obama.  Rush said it the day after he took office.  "I want Obama to fail!"  When people rightly pointed out that the country would suffer if Obama failed, he deflected the criticism and you never ever heard it again from the mainstream media.  

      Rush Limbaugh legitimized sabotage/sedition in the name of politics, and Mitch McConnell took it up later, together with the Tea Party and most of the GOP.  

      The problem is, we did not believe Rush when he said he wanted Obama to fail (at any cost).  You did not believe Mitch McConnell when he said his primary motivation was to defeat Obama in the next election (at any cost).  But their supporters did!  They knew the routine.

      We, and the rest of America, did not believe that these people would admit to being traitors out loud, in the bright sunlight, without any restraint.  But to them, it was an admission made around a bonfire, in costume, at night.  A secret code, and they understood it very well.  

      Hold onto your money, don't hire, don't promote, wait a bit, the Republicans will be back in power soon.  You'll get yours if you just go along.

      They could do it because Obama is black, and they knew it.  They used, and continue to use, the deep-seated racism in this country to "justify" their hatred and their actions.  And we refused to recognize it for what it was.

      We, and President Obama, and the Democratic Party, and the media, let it happen because we JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WAS HAPPENING IN THE OPEN!

        They're the ones who demanded massive budget cuts during the worst recession in 50 year. Now they crashed the economy. They own it.
