The next time you hear "Tea-Party" and "grass-roots" in the same sentence, remember it's all funded and brought to you by billionaire oil merchant libertarians.  The Koch Bros.,  are attempting to bring President Obama down in whatever way they can!  They are up to their ears in "political manipulation and obfuscation"!  They just don't want you to know about it!  "Covert Operations The billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama", is enlightening and more than worth the read at the New Yorker.  Interestingly; their father was a founding member of the John Birch Society, way back when McCarthy was hunting "communists" in America! 

 

"John Birch Society - History: Encyclopedia II - John Birch Society - History 

The John Birch Society was established in Indianapolis on December 9, 1958 by a group of twelve "patriotic and public-spirited" men led by Robert Welch, Jr., a retired candy manufacturer from Belmont, Massachusetts. Another noted founding member was Fred Koch, founder of Koch Industries, currently the largest private corporation in America..."

The win in Arizona, just goes to show John McCain will do anything to survive!  Has he ever really had any credibility or integrity?  Throughout his "dang" campaign, he has proven to the world he is now and always has been a LIAR and a LIAR cannot be trusted. "...McCain's failure to support stimulus measures that would bail out Main Street after he led the fight to spend $700 billion to save Wall Street, his likely vote to extend the Bush tax cuts for the rich that he actually voted against in the early 2000s. The recovered "maverick" is now just a predictable cog in 'the Party of No.'...McCain buckled in the face of an angry Tea Party and did exactly what anyone who's watched his long career unfold in Washington probably could have predicted he would do -- which is to say or do anything to save his own political rear end."  The question remains, where and when else in his lifetime has he done whatever it takes to save his own rear-end?  Barbara (Atlanta)     http://mediamatters.org/blog/201008200049 Candy Crowley once again shows the world why and how CNN is in the ratings tank.  "CNN’s Crowley blames Obama for persistence of Muslim myth".  Obviously the shake-up move to switch the hosts and anchors at CNN has done nothing for the news.  The same old, same old boring faces and predictable conservative bend is still glaringly evident! Ms. Cowley only prompts a click of the remote on Sunday morning!
