If you are fed up with this garbage, go to actblue and do something about it.

The sick thing about George W. Bush is that unlike like any President who has ever come before him he has injected vomit, hate, and slander into the heart of our democracy and has put under attack the very character of the American people.

What George W. Bush has done, is nothing less than a direct attack on the very notion that America is a melting pot, he strikes at the core of who we are as a country, and he demeans the soul of what we stand for as a people.

Now the Republican National Committee he runs has used the money he raised to buy ads that are openly racist and bigoted in the state of Tennessee.

George W. Bush wants more hate in the state of Tennessee and he wants people to vote on their hate.

If you want to stop this, go to actblue and do something about it.

Rush Limbaugh goes on the airwaves and demeans a courageous actor with sick, demented and vile physical ridicule of his Parkinsons disease. Is there anything these people will not stoop to?

If you want to put a stop to this, go to actblue and do something about it.

Ken Mehlman humiliates himself on George W. Bush's behalf by using the money of major oil companies to buy ads that play on hatred toward gays.

This is like the Marlboro Man attacking the smokers. Do gay Republicans in the dark of night feel any shame and humiliation that they are playing the politics of hate against others who have the same preference as them?

The great triumph of George W. Bush is not merely that he demeans the character of our country by playing the politics of hate, but that he bullies and intimidates and motivates those in his party who are punch drunk for power or frightened silly by fear to try to humiliate not only others, but to humiliate themselves.

Brave men and women died with their bodies buried in ditches and their corpses resting in bombed out churches who gave their lives for the right to vote, but George W. Bush inspires an African American Secretary of State in Ohio to try to strip the right to vote away from African Americans deserving of his trust.

America is a land of tolerance and dignity but George W. Bush inspires gay Republicans to participate in the demeaning of gay Americans to play the politics of intolerance in the name of Christ.

If you are fed up with this, go to actblue and do something about it.

Ann Coulter, the trailer park trash of American politics following the tactics of the trailer park trash of the American presidency slanders, ridicules and demeans even the widows of 9-11 heroes and the president who promised to bring honor and integrity to Washington lacked the honor and integrity to tell her to stop.

The entire Republican National Convention in 2004, in plain view of the Nation, ridiculed and demeaned even the Purple Heart itself, by handing out Purple Heart toys while those who never served in our military mocked and ridiculed those who received wounds on the battlefields of valor and honor.

In the State of Washington, Jefferson and Madison a Republican Senator not only uses a word of bigotry, but with a condescending smirk and smile, points to an American of a different color and says: "Welcome to the real America" as though the land of the red, white and blue only belongs to those who are white.

Is there anything they wont do, to win?

Go to actblue and do something about it.

What is happening here, is not merely partisan politics.

It is not merely negative campaigning.

It is not only opposition research.

What is unprecedented in the history of the American Presidency, is that a national leader organizes a direct attack on the content of the American character.

If you wont vote for us because you are anti- black, he says, vote for us because you are anti-gay, he urges.

America once had a President who led his band of brothers in the great war after his boat sank in the Pacific, and then wrote a book called Profiles In Courage.

We now have a President who dresses up in a military costume to claim the mission is accomplished and then, when it is not, he tries to make Americans feel afraid, timid, and fearful as though we are a nation of cowards and wimps.

Who ever heard of a commander in chief who tries to make our people feel cowardly?

Yes, this is a direct attack on the content of the American character. Vote for us, they say, because you don't like blacks, or gays. Vote for us, they say, because the 9-11 widows are harpies. If that doesn't work, vote for us, they say, because we want you to be afraid.

If you fed up with this, go to actblue and do something about it.

Hate your neighbor and be afraid.

That is what they are left with. What kind of commander in chief does this?

This man is interviewed by Brian Williams and asks what sacrifice he calls on people to make at a time of war, and having once said they should go shopping, he now says they pay taxes, which he has dramatically cut, for those who have the most.

What President in history has ever cut taxes while our troops are in major combat?

What commander in chief has ever sent our young men and women to war and allowed 70% of the casualties to be preventable because of his own ignorance, neglect and unconcern?

Understand what he is saying, because this is a direct attack on the content of the American character.

What he is really saying, is this: we will send our young men and women to give their lives for our country, but I will give you more money for yourselves.

That is the kind of people he believes we are.

That is the kind of country he wants us to be.

Do not give our troops everything they need, is what he does, but I will give you money, is what he says.

Divide our neighbors against each other, is what he does, and hate those who are different, is what he says, and as they become more desperate, even the code is gone from the words.

Make Americans the enemies of each other, is what he does, and fear the world around you, is what he says.

If it helps to win, make fun of Parkinsons disease, ridicule the widows of 9-11, bring more prejudice and bigotry to the land, demean the Purple Heart to attack your enemies even if they were awarded medals for valor, and in truth, if they were awarded medals for valor, that is a reason to attack them some more in this sick new brand of partisanship that has poisoned our politics.

Even when the Republican Congress commits child abuse against underage pages, cover it up, protect the guilty, attack your enemies and endanger the children and hope the American people have so lowered their standards that they get away, even, with this.

Bring fear to the land.

Bring anger to our politics.

Bring division to our communities.

Bring more bigotry to our nation and rub it raw, and use it harshly, and do anything to win.

This is nothing more than a direct attack on the character of our country, this is nothing less than an attempt to lower the standards of the character of our people.

Go to actblue, and stop it.
