The JFK Assassination and the Legacy of Obama Hate
Advertisements [?]
Today is the anniversary of John F Kennedys death, which means that over this Thanksgiving week President Barack Obama will have outlived the man he is often compared to. But with shots just fired at the White House and rampant hate being aimed at him from the far right, its a milestone that is hardly comforting.

Ive been holding my breath during each major event of Obamas presidency. Watching his speeches with my stomach in a vague, deliberately ignored knot. This man, elected as the first African American President, has faced more vitriolic, disrespectful enmity than I could have imagined on that hopeful day he took office. Just days ago, his brilliant and graceful wife faced booing by NASCAR fans as she served as the Grand Marshall in order to support military families.

And no leader from the right speaks out to denounce such outrage.

This is one reason why Republicans are simply not morally fit for office, among their other failures (jobs, taxing the middle class, forcing our credit rating down and more). At least ten states allowed their legislature to attempt to disqualify President Obama from being on the 2012 ballot because they want to see his birth certificate in some newly paranoid way.
