The Republican anti-Obama campaign, which started January 21, 2009, and continues today, has resulted in eliminating any civility that existed among us.
U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's sole raison d'etre was and still continues to be "no second term for the president." Lies and distortions by Republicans to reach this goal have filled the media for almost four years. Nothing has been spared.
Now we have finally reached the absolute bottom with Ted Nugent's invitation to the president of the United States and the barrel of Nugent's machine-gun. Wow. Even our right to free speech has become further tainted.
Take a bow, senator. You have succeeded in bringing this country to it's knees. We now can enjoy a complete void of any class. When I think about how different things might be today if McConnell, et. al., had chosen to think outside the box, I can only say, "Sorry, kids, I thought we were better than this."
Never miss a local story.
