Random Thoughts (Today’s Facebook Status Updates)

Old conventional wisdom from the right: “Everything was Clinton’s fault.” New conventional wisdom from the right: “Everything is Obama’s fault.” As for Bush, ignore the crashed economy and “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.”

Every authoritarian movement has its propaganda organ. Orwell had the Ministry of Information. The USSR had Pravda. The Republican Party has Fox News.

Republicans once again try to blame Democrats for problems they created. New right wing talking point is that 2011 budget shows Obama is a bigger spender than Bush. They ignore the facts that Obama’s budget is honest while Bush fought two wars off the books, has to pay for unfunded programs started by Bush,has to pay t…he interest on Bush’s deficit, and has to cope with the Bush recession.
