Tim Paws the Teachers

Taking his cue from Andrew Breitbart, Tim Pawlenty, the GOP White Hope, is making sure conservatives know that those damn teachers are responsible for the economic collapse.

- Not Billions in Corporate Welfare to Oil Companies.
- Not Billions of Dollars physically lost in Iraq.
- Not anti-Free Market DoD contracts to non-American companies.
- Not Billions to Israel.
- Not Government bailouts for White Collar Wall Street Criminals.

Nope it's because,
“The rise of government unions has been like a silent coup, an inside job engineered by self-interested politicians and fueled by campaign contributions. Unionized public employees are making more money, receiving more generous benefits, and enjoying greater job security than the working families forced to pay for it with ever-higher taxes, deficits and debt.”
Yep, Tim Pawlenty goes after the struggling middle class workers. Every time a Republican blames their economic catastrophe on Public Workers, Grover Norquist strangles a cat.

The most ridiculous thing about Pawlenty's glorious decision to join the campaign is the, cough... Liberal... cough... Media fawning over him. And it reminds me of Jack London and Jack Johnson.

President Obama is very much like Heavyweight Champ Jack Johnson. And his every success is an affront to the Grand Old Racist Republicans. It's bad enough he's President but to also succeed in getting Osama Bin Laden, to arrest the Republican created economic catastrophe and pass a (admittedly flawed) Healthcare law galls them unbelievably. Unlike London, the Republicans can't merely write to Tim Pawlenty and tell him, "The White Man must be rescued."

But, that's the daily narrative; the birtherism, the over-enunciated Barack HUSSEIN Obama, the Newt Gingrich Kenyan anti-colonial* mindset comment, Jerome Corsi, Dinesh D’Souza and his, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s, to Erick Erickson, World Net Daily, Sean Hannity, Pam Geller, Faux News, R. Limbaugh, Free Republic, and every Right Wing blog. The Right has completely given itself over to the venom of Hatred of the Other. And to them President Obama is the Other.

*- You know who else was anti-colonial, George Washington and the Founding Fathers. Seriously, the Revolution started with them wanting their rights as Englishmen, the term American was an epithet used to insult those living in the colonies.
