The article "Clinton: Vast right-wing conspiracy now targeting Obama" at

http://rawstory.com/2009/09/clinton-right-wing-conspiracy/

states "The "vast right-wing conspiracy that targeted President Bill Clinton during his time in the Oval Office is now targeting President Barack Obama, but is less effective than it was in earlier times because the US's demographics have shifted, Clinton told NBC's Meet the Press last Sunday."

The GOP doesn't have a goal other than smearing Obama if Clinton is correct as the article continues, "Clinton stated that the Republican strategy against the president would yield nothing positive either for the Republicans, or for the United States.
"They may be hurting President Obama, they can take his numbers down, they can run his opposition up. But, fundamentally, he and his team have a positive agenda for America. [The Republicans'] agenda seems to be wanting him to fail. And that's not a prescription for a good America."

The article "Why Isn't There a Left-Wing Conspiracy?" at

http://www.smirkingchimp.com/print/23937/

summarizes how in 1998 First Lady Hillary Clinton amplified President Clinton's viewpoint. The article states "The conservative attack machine has three components. The first is political." The GOP's daily messages are relentlessly negative and designed to evoke fear: Everything you hold dear is about to be taken from you. While some Republican missives seem nonsensical -- Obama is not an American citizen -- their thematic unity plays on visceral conservative emotions: People who are not real Americans are ruining the US."

The article deals with how strict message adherence by all members of the group amplifies the message for the apoplectic, downtrodden masses as it continues "The second component of the right-wing media strategy is sociological. The conservative attack machine broadcasts to those who did not vote for Obama in November - 46 percent of voters who are overwhelmingly white, Protestant, and conservative. The negative messages resonate because Republican voters operate in an information "silo," where their news is supplied by reactionary radio hosts, Fox News, and conservative Christian ministers."

If I listened to this rot all day long my brain would rot, but that is no problem for the red staters.

The article "The Mindless Class: The Left's Evil Twin" at

http://www.smirkingchimp.com/print/23961/

describes the angry GOP mobs who would rather hurt themselves than allow a Democrat succeed, and marks the difference between us and them as the article states "It's no secret that the Progressive Left seems to have a monopoly on internet blog sites. While sites like this one team with original writers sharing their ideas, the Right, deprived as it is of originality, creativity, and the ability to put a logical thought or a coherent sentence together, readily embrace marginally demented spokesmen who are given the power to reach millions by the corporate media, people like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly. These surrogates mirror the frustration and fear of the mindless class who get a fleeting sense of belonging and power as they channel their own destructive anger into a larger destructive force.
The Republican Party serves the interests of a tiny percent of Americans but gets around 50% of the vote in every election. The great majority of those who vote Republican are voting against their own welfare. If not for their intellectual emptiness, they'd likely be part of us."

Atwater knew, and taught his pupil Rove, about red staters. Karl practiced his politics for years before guiding 43 in that vast horizon of dullards, Texas. Back in 1969 the Rascals song "Look Around" described this vile character of the GOP with the lyrics "Bigotry hate and fear got 10 million votes this year" and it hasn't changed.

Currently the article "Fox News altered 'Obama praise' story to exclude 'death threats'" at

http://rawstory.com/blog/2009/09/fox-news-deleted-mention-of-death-threats-against-principal/

states "In a story about a group of elementary school kids who sang the praises of President Barack Obama for a Black History Month event, Fox News appears to have removed key information regarding the fallout triggered by intense right-wing media coverage."
