TO THE EDITOR: Michael Cole’s “list” of supposed Obama “firsts” is a collection of idiotic falsehoods, misrepresentations and outright foolishness repeating the latest lies from the Obama-hater industry.
I wouldn’t waste anyone’s time debunking claims as stupid as the “Obama is a foreigner” canard, or the one about states issuing Social Security cards. An informed third-grader would know better.
The debt downgrade he refers to is a direct result of the Tea Party Republican Congress refusing to pay for debt, three-fourths of which was incurred under Republican Administrations, thanks to their trillion dollar wars, billionaire tax cuts and trillion dollar pharmaceutical subsidies charged to Medicare. This is a little like going on a six-month drunk, and then blaming your wife when she pays off the credit card bill.
The so-called “Western Center for Journalism” cited as his “source” is a sham operation run by a right-wing con artist named Floyd Brown who makes his living peddling conspiracy theories and other lies to the gullible. These date back to his ridiculous, de-bunked Vince Foster “murder” claims during the Clinton years, and the debunked, discredited “birther” nonsense under President Obama.
Floyd Brown, this so-called “source,” has a 20-year record as a smear artist with no journalistic credibility to anyone in possession of their senses. The WCJ’s character assassination and false claims have been financed for years by billionaire right-wing Obama and Clinton-haters like Richard Mellon Scaife, according to Wikipedia, and numerous other legitimate sources.
Mr. Brown and his “Western Center for Journalism” are a fraud and a pathetic joke, but the fact that they are debunked lies doesn’t stop these fraudsters from peddling their trash endlessly in the right-wing echo chamber—which, after all, exists to dupe the ignorant.
After all, that’s what these fake “journalists” get paid for.
