some thoughts on US politics

American Crossroads, the biggest of the Republican “super PACs,” is planning to begin its first major anti-Obama advertising blitz of the year.

With an anticipated bank account of more than $200 million, officials at American Crossroads said they would probably begin their campaign this month.

They said they would focus the bulk of the first phase of their drive to defeat Obama on the period of May through July.

The ultimate goal of the Crossroads campaign, Steven J. Law, the group’s leader said, would be to better connect Americans’ disappointment with the economy to their views of the president.

The May through July period, they believe, is a critical period for making an impression on voters before summer vacations and the party conventions take place.

American Crossroads position and theme concept which it will continue to push is, in their words, "President Obama and his allies in Congress stubbornly cling to the same destructive policies that drove us into this economic and fiscal morass: Backbreaking tax increases. Job-destroying regulatory harassment.  And gross fiscal incompetence."  See their website at: http://www.americancrossroads.org/about/

Which, of course, reflects the position of the Republican Party that: "everything in the USA, and nearly the entire world, was absolutely wonderful and everyone was basking in the sunshine of peace and near unlimited prosperity, pretty much without a care in the universe until suddenly, unexpectedly and inexplicably, a foreign-born African communist who had spent his entire life in Muslim countries like Indonesia and Kenya, seized control of the government of the United States early in 2009.

He quickly executed his fiendish plan, retroactively attacked Afghanistan and Iraq and bankrupted the economy by channeling hundreds of billions of dollars to his oil and transportation companies and then gave away trillions of dollars to  bankers, insurance companies and stock manipulators while simultaneously destroying the value of most private homes in the country. Meanwhile he was bringing in millions of Hispanic non-citizens, who can't even speak English, for hand-outs and free health-care and raising the price of oil by 60%, because he can do that stuff."

Fortunately the brave folks at American Crossroads, at great personal risk, were able to beat back the insurgents, restore our rightful flag, reinstitute the use of the American Language, turn corporations into people and regain control of the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections and thereby narrowly avert Obama's evil scheme to enslave... The Very Wealthy.

Have I left anything out? 

Oh, yeah: he's the Anti-Christ; which explains how he was able to get his birth announcements into the Honolulu newspapers back in 1961 and magically appear, completely out of nowhere, in Chicago five years ago in the guise of a teacher of constitutional law, an attorney and a United States Senator.

But, I want to thank the folks at American Crossroads for saving us from a bunch of stuff like having health-care, a place to actually, you know, live and food to eat.  It's a relief to know that they support our freedom, especially freedom as it was defined so long ago: "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose."

I picked this exchange from the comments section of a news story about Rick Santorum, unlike the right-wing, I don't have to make this stuff up:

H: I was just discussing with a friend the other day how freaking terrified I am of the future and I don’t even live in the US. This is the scariest election by far.

A: Exactly.  The implications are so far-reaching, its not just the US that will feel it. I think the moral of the story here is that I don’t care how freaking jaded you are by the establishment right now, if you DON’T vote for Obama things are only going to get seriously worse. especially if you're a woman…or poor…or a minority…or gay.

 H: Yeah, or a foreign citizen, or have a disability or learning disorder, or work a minimum wage job, or are sick etc. etc. etc, you see where I'm going with this...
