Republican Lie Machine Grinds On

There are no less than two books on the bestseller list that are nothing but long anti-Obama rants. The Republican Lie Machine is working its butt off. They had to really crank those suckers out, considering it usually takes a year from the time a book is accepted for publication and the time it's actually available.

In fact, the Republicans are beginning to go far enough in their dirt-slinging that they're actually turning off other Republicans! Locally, the chairman of the Bernalillo County Republican Party, Fernando C de Baca, said this: "The truth is that Hispanics came here as conquerors. African-Americans came here as slaves. Hispanics consider themselves above blacks. They won't vote for a black president."

He's been asked to step down as chair. Of course he's telling everyone that the remark was taken out of context. Can anyone give me an example of a context in which thost last two sentences aren't monstrously offensive? He claims he was speaking about the past. But note: "consider themselves" isn't past tense. Neither is "They won't vote." That's indicating the future.

Here's another thing predictiing the future: If McBush is elected, we'll get four more years of the erosion 0f our rights, the robbing of the poor to make the rich richer, and yet more Supreme Court justices who ignore the Constitution to support their lobbyists' agendas.

Vote Obama!
