On my radio show Tuesday I launched The Obama Project --the attempt to list in succinct fashion the many reasons why President Obama should be defeated in November 2012.
Opponents of the president's re-election shouldn't be lost in the fever swamp of birtherism or challenging the president's Christian beliefs. In fact, Team Obama hopes that bizarre side-issues of zero credibility dominate election coverage and help to keep the public from focusing on thew president's record.
What is vitally necessary is a quick reference guide to the disaster that has been the Obama presidency. I began to assemble it on air and my listeners joined in and quickly we had fashioned "The Obama Project: 50 Reasons To Vote Against Obama 1.0."
