Sleepy Time Thought: 4/15/2012 Tax Day Edition
So it’s Tax Day. The next few weeks should be fascinating as we get a look at Congressional tax returns and Mitt Romney forgets to release his. My hope is that, with the uptick in the economy, President Obama will find that he has more money than expected. That’ll certainly blow a rather large hole in the GOP’s phony story about how the economy is worse than ever. And God help them if the unemployment rate dips below 8%. They’ll literally have nothing to campaign on except for whatever scandal they can manufacture. The problem with those “scandals” is that not one of them have stuck to Obama for more than a few seconds. Not one. It must be infuriating for Karl Rove and his pack of dogs that they can’t find a single real nugget of naughtiness. I’m sure there’s SOMETHING that the man has done that was illicit in some way but damned if they can find it.
I suppose it doesn’t really matter, the right is about to spend over half a billion (that’s with a B) dollars to smear the hell out of him because that’s all they can do. It is up to each and every one of us to shout down the lies as soon as we hear them. Ask your friends if they’ve heard the new rumor that Obama shot a man in Reno just to watch him die and however they answer tell them, “You know that’s bullshit, right? Only a moron would believe some crap like that.” The best part, of course, is that you don’t have to lie while doing it. Lies are for the right, even if they don’t know that they are lying. They have their echo chamber propped up by dirty corporate money. We have our own propped up by actual citizens who actually care about their country. Time to get to work.
Sleep tight you filthy liberal scum!
