  •  I honestly think we give them too much credit (5+ / 0-)

    to the far Right if we think this is about the policy they are using as an excuse.

    The teabaggers don't care what Obama proposes, just that Obama proposed it.

    If Obama proposed doubling the retirement benefits of military veterans, Glenn Beck would see Karl Marx, Sean Hannity would see Mao, Rush Limbaugh would see Hitler... and there would be people screaming about the secret plan to 'kill' America's vets by conning them into signing up for 'the death list'.

    If Obama had proposed expanding AmeriCorps and calling it 'The Domestic Peace Corps', we would be hearing about secret concentration camps and seeing pictures of Obama with a Hitler moustache drawn on his face.

    Watch.

    The Energy Bill is going to feature the same rhetoric.

    Obama wants people to die. Obama hates people with electricity. Obama wants to enslave white people as revenge for slavery. Now. Go out and scream at a Congressperson that Obama wants to shut off the power in the dead of winter to old people. And tell America that you oppose taking George Washington off the buck and replacing him with a picture of Malcolm X.

    You can't claim solidarity with people if you also want to bomb them
