The birther controversy is an example of true bipartisanship. Although the brunt of the rumor-mongering was done by people on the right, the first to spread the accusations were mildly left of center Hillary reporters during the 2008 primaries. Of course the wild accusations about Barack Hussein Obama Jr.'s Kenyan birth are false since he wasn't even born on this planet! WAKE UP SHEEPLE!

A conservative Facebook friend recently taunted his liberal friends with a Billy Crystal/Edward G. Robinson inspired "Where's your Messiah now?" mini rant. He's correct that people left of center got swept away by the historical significance of a black man being elected President of the United States of America. A few months later, historical revolution was replaced by business as usual.
I'm not sure if anyone else electable in 2008 would have done a better job than Barack Hussein Obama. Unfortunately, it's still time for the change that people wanted back in 2008. Candidate Obama wanted to work to fix America's problems in a rational, bipartisan manner. I doubt he really appreciated the sheer hatred and scorn that the far right has for him. It's time for a primary challenge on the left to remind our president of what got him elected in the first place: stopping the failed policies of war and corporate welfare.
