Though I still try to wrap my brain about what could have been done differently in Syria that wouldn't have involved an outright invasion (which probably would have been a far bigger disaster than what we got).
This is the guy who post-Miami shooting said of Obama and the terrorist "there's something going on there.." The dog whistles have now turned to flat out calling him the Founder of ISIS. At a certain point I want to fulfill these nuthobs persecution complex for them because this shit is approaching treason. I remember the Bush years, and how passionately I felt we were going the absolute wrong direction post-9/11. I remember hearing the conspiracy talk in dark corners of the Internet.
But just IMAGINE if Kerry had, as the Democratic candidate for President, said that He had "reason to believe" that Cheney and Bush were responsible for 9/11. This is the level of shit we've been reduced to here folks. For 8 years this guy has been one of the louder voices seeking to delegitimize our President, insinuating that he's lied about his religion (so fucking WHAT if he was Muslim anyway? Last I checked that was perfectly OK) and constantly insinuating that the President sympathizes with Islamic terrorists. If Obama was his mother's shade of pale and his last name were Smith none of that would have ever been floated. The injustices our President has had to stomach with grace have gone far beyond politics.
Optics be damned, when a candidate for President insinuates his opponent might need to be assassinated if she wins and accuses the sitting President of founding a terrorist organization, hasn't he become a clear and present danger to the Union? It would fulfill every persecution fantasy his followers have, but what does he have to do for the Secret Service to walk out on stage the next time he speaks and just say "You're done here." and escort him away?
I hate this man and need him to lose so badly it haunts him for the rest of his life.
