Lies Where Credit is Due: How the Right Responds to the Accomplishments of President Obama

Lies Where Credit is Due: How the Right Responds to the Accomplishments of President Obama

It has been nine days since President Obama fulfilled the nearly decade old "dead or alive" promise which George W. Bush made regarding Osama Bin Laden. What have we learned in those nine days? What we already knew-no matter his historic accomplishment, no matter the public good, regardless of National interest and in spite of public opinion, the majority of those on the Right will not offer one iota of credit to this President. Whether it be achievements, or political positions, anything this President does is selectively interpreted through a Right Wing filter. What the public gets are distorted facts, hyperbolic translations, and a healthy dose of fear mongering. Here are a few examples from the past two years-albeit with some hyperbolic translating of my own.

Be Good Friends,
