The Mudslinging has Already Begun

The Republican mudslinging juggernaut is starting up again. During the last election, it hid within the "Swift Boat Veterans" as they made up stories and photographs to discredit John Kerry's military record. Now they are already making up stories on Barrack Obama. I'm sure they were ramped up with all kinds of interesting lies for Hillary, but it didn't take them long to start on Obama. Look for him to be a Muslim, who hates America, has no patriotism, and will turn the country over to Osama as soon as he is elected. Unfortunately, Obama's wife played right into their hands with a statement last week about being proud of her country for the "first time."

All of this propaganda could easily be put aside by the Republican candidate, if he would disavow the lies. However, George Bush was conveniently silent in '04 as Kerry was smeared. Look for John McCain to be the same way, as he lets his partners do his dirty work for him. It will be interesting to see if the American public again falls for this nasty politics.
