Obama is the ultimate Democrat. They are experts in slime and sleaze and have created a base of diehard voters who will ALWAYS vote Democrat (because they can recite the alphabet up to "D" and recognize that letter on their ballots). I still cannot believe the number of people who think slobbering sycophants like Chris Matthews are "journalists." When you ask about things like welfare fraud and abuse, their answer is, "Well, that's just the way it is." They see no correlation between their "D" votes and the fraud. They see no alternative--like voting for candidates and then insisting the problems be fixed.
