This person speaks of racism in the Republican party and I am not seeing it.
Well, if there isn't any racism then there's a whole lot of hysteria and hatred. The Kenyan, the Usurper, the Magic Negro, and so on. To hear some people, Obama is a combination of Hitler, Stalin and bin Laden, and he's out to intentionally destroy America. To me he's just a liberal politician, nothing more and nothing less. He's also our President, whether we like it or not, and he deserves the respect of the office. I believe he is also entitled to the respect due any human being. How can the Republican party provide intelligent opposition to the president's policies if they're caught up in the politics of emotion and hatred? Getting into the gutter may be satisfying. It also may be a way to obtain some short term political gain, but what is the cost to the long term health of our nation? Would you rather see the nation destroyed than see Obama continue as President? Besides that, what sort of impression do you think hate politics will have on the great mass of the public? Some may respond positively. Others may find our antics to be ridiculous. Obama can be opposed on principles, can be opposed with respect, and can be opposed constructively. There is a midterm election in fifteen months and a presidential election in three years. We don't have to resort to tactics better suited to a banana republic.
One other thing we always hear is that the Democrats did it first. "They attacked Sarah's family so why shouldn't we do the same to Obama's kids". "They were unfair to Bush so let's be unfair to Obama". Since when do two wrongs make a right? The Republican and Democratic parties are political organizations, not criminal gangs. We should all be better than that, and our nation deserves better than that.
