What this represents is an overused conservative non-statement blaming Obama for all ills of the world with an attempt to create an emotional under-pinning through a paint-by-number collage.

Okay! How about a painting of all the greatest human beings on earth sitting together looking at a poor humble scared little kid and saying, "If it weren't for conservative Tea Party mentally deficient activist who back the Greedy Wall Street Bankers who give themselves billions of dollars in bonuses then this poor humble little kid would be happy."

Of course you would laugh. So you obviously see my point when I look at this video. You see, juxtaposing a bunch of historical figure, then assigning a generalized value with a highly exaggerated reason for all of the bad in the world just doesn't strike of intelligence.

Just a note: the conservatives just haven't done that well on the national stage. They've lost elections, make fools of themselves and don't seem to get their facts straight. Pointing fingers should start at home. I'm all for looking at problems, but I'm just a little tired of blaming everything on a mean bogeyman. Can't we dig a little deeper?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
