The Politics of Distraction & Lies

So, the Republicans have become so unhinged from reality that they now are trying to sell the idea that President Obama is trying to indoctrinate American children. The President is going to address school kids on their first day back, September 8th. He plans to "deliver a national address directly to students on the importance of education. The President will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning. He will also call for a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, parents and educators to ensure that every child in every school receives the best education possible so they can compete in the global economy for good jobs and live rewarding and productive lives as American citizens."

For this, the right-wing is comparing President Obama to Mao, Hitler, and other loathsome figures.

Conservatives really have nothing left to offer. Do they?
