The 2012 Republican campaign was nothing if not a constant drumbeat of pointing out the lies and deceit of Obama and the Democrats, in general. Ivan: The PEOPLE DON'T CARE!!! Obama is a rock star, and we live in an American Idol political era. Assuming you're a Beatles fan, it would be like me telling you that Paul McCartney was a lying, duplicitous liberal jerk, who has the intelligence of an asteroid fragment. It just...doesn't...matter...to anyone, apparently. People feel good about themselves when they go to cocktail parties and can say they voted for Obama.
