We're smarter than that

I had fun watching right-wingers go wild over the past year, foaming at the mouth over death panels, killing granny, birthers, socialist takeovers, comparing President Obama to Hitler and running out their hopefuls like the rhetorically challenged Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin and the other fearmongers.

Tragically for them, their standard-bearers have quit their government jobs for money and fame, hiked the Appalachian Trail and just generally proved to be the noncritical thinkers who think using fear and lies is the way back into power.

Not governing or leading, but regaining power, is their goal and they prove daily they will do or say anything to attain that goal.

Scaring the American people is more logical to them than formulating ideas and showing leadership in this time of crisis.

Obama is smart. He is getting much of the legislation critical for the American people done prior to the midterms, which traditionally has given the governing party losses.

While the Democrats are not likely to lose control of the House or Senate, November 2010 to Election Day 2012 will get really interesting, and we'll get to take the pulse of the American people.

While the Republican party is being taken over by extremists on a jihad against the future, I continue to believe the American people are far smarter to than to fall for their cheap tricks and lies.
