BREAKING NEWS: According to recent reports, President Obama is a bully. He doesn’t play fair. Oh, and he hates America. Or something like that.
So goes the latest attempt by the Romney team to provide a counter-narrative to the one painted by the Obama camp in the aggressive Bain Capital ads being rolled out in swing states this summer.

Choosing a successful line of attack for a political campaign is a lot like being a doctor: You press until it hurts, then you know where to look. The Obama campaign is pressing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney right where it hurts–hard. His time at Bain Capital.

Crazy comparisons butt-hurt Republicans have made to the SCTOUS ruling on Obamacare:
Unarmed flying machinery is merely the latest tool in a government’s toolbox to exterminate undesirables. It’s quieter. It’s easier. It poses less risk (political or otherwise to its user.) But let us not forget, it is only a means to an end. As we concert our opposition to the use of these drones, our framework needs to be rooted in attaked the end: destroying brown bodies. Opposing drones because you believe they’re unfair? What part of our war upon a nation with a fraction of our economic capital is fair again?
But I always feel so conflicted as I make this declaration. How do I love this black man who has overseen the escalation of the use of unmanned drones that have destroyed droves of brown bodies? women. children. innocents.
I place no extraordinary burden upon his shoulders, no “brotha, be Titan and hold up the entire mass that is people of color.” See, that shit is asking too much.
But I do ask, of a man who has spent time in: Indonesia, Hawaii, Kenya, New York, D.C. …Chicago, who knows who people of color from all over live, to not wipe out their children. women. innocents.
But I do ask, of this beautiful human being, with a beautiful black family, to stop the decimation of people of color in North Africa. In the Middle East.
I don’t think that’s asking too much at all.
Soledad O’Brien questioned Joel Pollak of Brietbart as to what’s so damn controversial about the video of President Obama speaking at Harvard—introducing the late Derrick Bell.
The Right-Wing is now attempting to dress President Obama up as a race warrior and “radical”—whatever the hell that is. But what’s most infuriating is that in this video, there is a complete retreat from the idea that white supremacy is still the order of the day. That just demonstrates how far away we are from really understanding the way our society operates and marginalizes POC.
