Kathy Bates, chewing up the scenery on the latest season of American Horror Story, reveals the true motivation behind the rise of The Tea Party.
Hint: it’s not boring fiscal policy and Congressional procedure.
Were preceding Presidents able to raise the debt ceilings without conflict and drama? Yes, because this is how our government is run.
Did many Presidents raise taxes and did GOP Chief Executives leave whopping deficits. That is also true.
Was it the very conservative Heritage Foundation that once promoted the idea of universal health care and was it enacted and executed by a Republican Governor?
So what is it about this President?
How can the rest of the citizenry pinpoint the basis of the anger of Tea Party folks?
Could references such as “tar baby” and “illegitimate or the insistence on Obama’s Kenyan birth possibly be clues?
If birther lies are right, President Obama was born in a foreign country to a mother who was an American citizen. Just like Ted Cruz, who is currently in Iowa this weekend, starting his long slog toward the Presidency.
An aside: for the fifty billionth time, Obama was born in Hawaii. Even in Kansas textbooks, Hawaii should be included as part of the United States. (And if material students are using was printed before 1959 when Hawaii became the 50th state, then it is time to update.)
No. Bates’ character hisses the answer in this short clip.
The magic box (TV) lies. It says a black man is President!
