Obama Cements His Legacy

It's neither surprising nor disheartening that Obama will stoop to any low to try to delegitimize the Republicans. That's politics; after all, that's what the Republicans should be doing to the Democrats, who truly deserve to be vilified and crushed. I say BRING IT ON. The Republicans should tell it like it is, say that Obama is a hateful, traitorous menace, and PROVE it, the evidence is overwhelming. You're right when you say the question is whether the Republicans are up to the task, but it is quite obvious they are not; they are shallow, weak, cowards.

Newsweek stopped its print edition at the end of 2012, but they still tried to scandalize the country by producing a fake cover honoring Obama's second inauguration as "The Second Coming." This absurd attempt at myth making is a natural progression. The "cover" story was written by Evan Thomas, who proclaimed on MSNBC a few years ago that Obama was "sort of like God" in being above the gritty political fray.

It was just as absurd when Newsweek writer David Frum, the formerly conservative Bush speechwriter, tweeted this piece of media-elite nonsense: "First term Obama: punchee, 2nd term Obama, puncher."
