From the time Barack Obama stood on the steps of the Capitol and took the oath of office, Republicans made destroying him politically their number one priority. In doing so, facts were optional (death panels and socialism, anyone?). Republicans including the conservatives on this site are hell bent on making all kinds of outlandish threats and predictions, and feel they don't have to be correct. They pull an article form right wing extremist news outlets and run with it no matter how far or outlandish it is or truthful. If you look through the recent blogs posted by the conservatives on this site- most of their post are attacks on the President of the United States working poor and Women. You will find that most of my post are answers to their scare tactics. The conservatives offer no solutions just attacks!
The right has controlled the debate for far too long with a narrative based on fantasy and lies. Their emotional appeals, dripping with fear-mongering buzz words, manage to get large portions of citizens to vote against their own best interest. Example Union workers in Tennessee vote against their own best interest (form a union)because of bullying from Republicans http://www.ibtimes.com/uaw-vote-fails-tennessee-volkswagen-plant-critics-blame-sen-bob-corkers-illegal-actions-1555792
They're republicans and the only way they know to win an election and to govern is by fear and ignorance.

Conservatives: people who can't deal with facts.
Conservatives pundits: people who make their living in the attempt to obscure the facts.
Conservative leaders: people who try to organize the suppression of the facts.
Conservative legislators: people who vote only for whatever will enrich or empower them and others of their class.
Conservative apologists: people who prefer lies to the truth.
There is something about truth, it wins every time. This President, perhaps more than any ever, has been lied on, despised, vilified, and falsely accused in the first two years of his presidency, than others have endured in two terms. And, despite his faith being questioned, he has displayed more Christian character than those with "evangelical" credentials. He has not reviled in fiery rhetorical flourishes, but responded with undeniable dignity to things way beneath the dignity of his office. He has shown us a sense of humor, yet possesses the ability to laugh at himself in the butt of jokes. He has shown us previously his steeliness in the face of adversity, in dealing with the Somali pirates. The American public were convinced it was mere luck, tarnished by partisan politics & corporate influences & ads. He has been weighed in the balances and finally been deemed found worthy of the title Commander-in-Chief with his daring decision to take out Bin Laden in an attack with the odds stacked against him.
I believe history will judge President Obama the kindest, because there is still an element of our population that will still remain to have their vision obscured with the thick scales of racism, and despite his many successes, with never see him with righteous eyes.
