...demonizing and trying to cause the President to fail often using the most ridiculous arguments? To me, there is a big credibility problem with the right in America. If you spend a half a decade having a conniption over:
-He's not eligible to be potus because he's not an America citizen despite being a grandson of a WWII vet who served under Gen. George Patton and even if the constitution did not afford citizenship to the children of American citizens born anywhere, the REPUBLICAN Governor of Hawaii said he was born in Hawaii.
-He has a deep seeded hatred for white people; that would have to include his own mother.
-He hates the constitution and subverts it by appointing non-elected, unaccountable White House czars bypassing the senate confirmation process laid out by the founding fathers. Not mentioning every president since FDR except one has had White House czars and the record holder of the POTUS with the most was republican President George W Bush but they said NOTHING about that at the time or after.
-He hates Israel. Never mentioning his chief adviser, the White House Chief of Staff was not only Jewish but spent summers in Israel as a kid and volunteered for the Israeli civil air patrol when Saddam Hussein was lobbing scud missiles toward Tel Aviv in the 1990s.
-A USDA official shares how God changed her heart from someone who resented Whites due to racism she and her family experienced as a child but grew to love all people equally. The Pundits carefully edit the video to deliberately make it sound like the Obama Administration appoints officials who hate White people and go into 5th gear plastering it all over the conservative media. Not having access to the entire video, the Obama Administration terminates her. Then instead of trying to salvage some semblance of credibility, saying they were deceived too and apologize to the lady who lost her job and the White House, the conservative media figures out a way to blame Obama for jumping to conclusions and the pundit who deceptively edited the video gets a wink and a nod and continues to enjoy VIP status as an important and respected voice for conservatism until his untimely passing.
-Hip Hip Hooray! The USA (Chicago, Obama's home town) lost its bid to host the Olympics. Up with Brazil, down with America...because its Chicago.
-Yahooooo! The urban crime rate is at an all time high in Chicago, the President's hometown. Gotta love it when people get killed if it scores political points!
-Then when you mention this type of stuff is shameful to your republican friends, they compare it to the behavior mostly no-name extremists in the Democrat party when its mostly our party's most respected leaders and standard bearers.
I could go on...It's a wonder I haven't switched party's.
Anyway, with me eventually I just write off any criticism of the Obama Presidency. Now we have Benghazi, The IRS scandal and AP wire taps and I honestly am giving the White House the benefit of the doubt; didn't realize the severity of the problem, initial intelligence as to the players involved was faulty, didn't realize what was going on by badly behaving employees in Cincinnati and disciplinary action is underway including the possibility of criminal charges, legitimate anti-terror investigation in efforts to save American lives. I also realize, in order to get to the truth you need to objectively hear all sides but in my mind those on the right have absolutely no credibility left as caring about truth; all they care about is demonizing the President.
My question is do you think the seriousness of the current events mentioned would be viewed as such or even followed and cared about by more people if those (conservatives) claiming these allegations are of "such a grave nature and here's why" if they had a history and reputation of fairness, honesty, integrity and respect in their past dealings with the President?
