Now we know the rightwing's fall strategy. If Obama so much as breathes, Republicans plan on screaming bloody murder. Think I'm kidding?
Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer today released the following statement condemning President Obama's use of taxpayer dollars to indoctrinate America's children to his socialist agenda.

"As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama's socialist ideology. The idea that school children across our nation will be forced to watch the President justify his plans for government-run health care, banks, and automobile companies, increasing taxes on those who create jobs, and racking up more debt than any other President, is not only infuriating, but goes against beliefs of the majority of Americans, while bypassing American parents through an invasive abuse of power.
Ever since 9/11, I have been saying that if Gore had been president and the US was attacked like that, Republicans would be demanding his immediate resignation for failing to protect the country. "Ridiculous!" my friends exclaimed. "In a moment of crisis like 9/11, Republicans would certainly have supported anyone who was president."

I thought my friends were hopelessly naive (the few times I've mentioned my theory in blogposts, I've received similar reactions). But not even I ever imagined that a major political party would object to an address to schoolchildren from the president of the United States.

These people are seriously crazy. And seriously dangerous.
