Rush just said you can trace the current state of polarization, which is probably as bad as its been since the Civil War (my words, not his), to two events ... the Vietnam War and Watergate. The underlying thesis being, the moment the left and their willing accomplices in the media discovered they could orchestrate our defeat in a war and bring down a sitting President, they became emboldened and the vanguard for Utopian left and its battle to fundamentally change American. Rush's premise is correct, but it wasn't Watergate or Vietnam that provided the impetus, it was the moment Edward R. Murrow and his colleagues were able to destroy Joe McCarthy, cast him as the villain and the communist 5th column in our midst as the victims.

Thats when everything shifted and that emboldened the media in Watergate and Vietnam.

Thats when the media discovered its power to influence public opinion and became drunk with power, and thats when they became the vanguard, attack dogs and palace guards for the American left.

I think there's a lot in what you say.

Before taking the oath of office, Barack Obama vowed to fundamentally transform the United States. He has certainly done so. For example, Obama has:

-- destroyed the job market;

-- sent billions of taxpayer dollars to Wall Street, companies overseas, his campaign contributors and public sector unions;

-- forced the passage of a wildly unpopular national health care law on a purely partisan vote;

-- come out for gay marriage;

-- refused to enforce laws on illegal immigration;

-- eliminated the work requirement for welfare.

How can a country that elected Ronald Reagan have Obama tied in the polls with Mitt...
