I sent this to our local newspaper and while it's really meant for right wingers who would never read this anyway, I wanted to share it with you for your comments and suggestions.

Message to the Obama Haters
>
> Here is a news flash to those Obama-hating reality deniers: You are
> entitled to dissent, if you wish, but here are some facts for you.
> Barack Obama was freely elected and was born in the United States. He
> is not a closet Muslim who hates America and wishes it to fail. He
> does not hate white people and he is not the reincarnation of Adolph
> Hitler, nor of Chairman Mao, much as you might like to convince us
> otherwise. He does not “pal around with terrorists” nor does he plan
> to establish his own private army, set up internment camps or seek to
> disarm us or indoctrinate our children into some foreign “ism.”
>
> His health care program does not include death panels and his ideas to
> get this nation back on course are not Socialism, Communism, Marxism,
> and Nazism all in one and if you think they are then get a dictionary
> and learn the definitions of the words you so casually throw about.
>
> Fox News has an agenda and it is anything but fair and balanced. You
> are not surrounded by enemies who lie and seek to destroy you, nor
> does the mainstream media deliberately wish to deceive you.
>
> Environmentalists do not want to take away your jobs nor are they the
> ones responsible for environmental damages nor have a secret wish to
> establish a Marxist economy. Don't expect some Divine Being to rain
> down his blessings on the country no matter how many wars you start
> and how much torture you practice as long as the gays cant get
> married. Gays are not a threat to this country nor to your marriage
> nor do they secretly want to marry their French poodles. Widespread
> divorce is a major problem because of its effects on children. So
> where is your constitutional amendment prohibiting that? Regulating
> the excesses of capitalism is not the same as destroying it. And for
> that matter a slight reduction in our $533 billion dollar a year
> military budget does not leave us “naked and unprotected” much as you
> might think otherwise.
>
> The solution to every problem is not ensuring the rich have more
> money. And if you are a middle class family, Obama has not raised your
> taxes. And two hundred and fifty thousand a year after deductions is
> not “struggling middle class.”
>
> Please don't tell me Republicans were bi-partisan when Democrats voted
> with a Republican President but that it's Democrats who are partisan
> now that Republicans refuse to vote with a Democratic President. Save
> that kind of logic for a game of “Twister!”
>
> If you wish to promote a religious belief that justifies war and
> torture and feeding the rich, go right ahead but please stop calling
> it Christianity.
>
> The universe is a bit more than six thousand years old and if you
> believe that then keep it to yourself and don't try to foist your
> fairy tales on our school children along with of tales of
> Jack-and-the-Beanstalk.
>
> Your continual stoking of the fires of racial animosity, your sense
> that “you've been done wrong,” and your paranoid belief that some
> foreign entity is taking your country away, makes about as much sense
> as your former fear of Social Security, Medicare and fluoride in the
> water. Your eagerness to demonize as
> un-American those that disagree with you has a long history in your
> party and that, combined with your willingness to justify, create,
> spread and eagerly embrace the most outrageous, unfounded lies, is
> ripping this country apart. Stop waving the flag. Stop thinking you
> are the only true patriots.
>
> So many of you claim to be religious Christians. You ought to read the
> part about bearing false witness. Or the part about killing or
> returning hate with love and stop twisting the words to support your
> own agenda.
>
> We never thought Barack Obama was a Messiah, as you mockingly
> claim. He was fairly elected. He is trying the best he can in a very
> difficult situation. He makes mistakes but your obstructionism and
> negativity isn't helping.
>
>Finally, Barack Obama is President. Barack Obama is a black man. Get over it

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
