Crossover Republican Endorsements are Becoming Stranger Than Fiction

To say this primary election season is fascinating is the understatement of this young year.

Even Republicans are crossing over to support Barack Obama.

Forget Ann Coulter's surprising if not laughable support of Hillary Clinton over John McCain.  We can speculate all we want what her motivations were besides her obvious hatred of McCain.  The cunning C-lady's motives, besides headline-grabbing are her's and who cares anyway.

Today's headline in the Washington Post,  "Why I'm Backing Obama," Op-ed by Susan Eisenhower says it all.  

Even loyal Republicans of long-standing are throwing their support behind to Obama.

For me, Caroline Kennedy's backing of Obama eclipsed all other endorsements, including that of Oprah, but this one is important.

Good for Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of Ike. 

Whatever Obama is doing to inspire voters, who like me, are sick to death of "winning elections by fear," Obama brings hope and optimism to the country while not sugar-coating the problems we face.

Winning through fear is the trademark of this president and his administration.  Even the jackasses in Congress fall for their trickery of fear tactics.

Prior to every election, prior to every major vote on legislation that Bush wants to push through the idiotic color-coded threat level is raised, or someone gets a surprise package of anthrax, or Rovian tactics of you must pass this now or else the terrorists will be busting through our open north and south doors kicks in.

The fall for it every damn time, passing legislation they haven't bothered to read that is bad for the country and worse for the Constitution.

Time is up Republicans!  Your shining hours of rule by fear and lies are over.  Even some Republicans are getting wise to your tactics.
