Republicans have finally fallen victim to their constant need to portray Obama as un-American. Now they are hoist by their own petard.
Too bad JoScar didn’t get the sadness way back when Republicans proposed to finish off the middle class by doubling down on the failed Bush tax cuts and cutting social insurance. Or when Democrats did the same thing, for that matter.
Republicans are now telling themselves the lie that lets them sleep at night: that their problem is they simply have a bad candidate. That’s a very useful lie, because picking a bad candidate is a one-time mistake that can be fixed next time. It lets them avoid confronting the fact that the problem is with their policies and attitudes, not with their candidate.
The fact is, any GOP candidate that isn’t trained to say all the things Romney is saying can’t get nominated.
