Republicans have never shown any particular concern for consistency or honesty when it comes to gnashing their pointy little teeth at President Obama, especially over things that either aren’t even his fault, or things he’s done that are marked improvements over Bush Jr.’s record (yet which the same GOP curiously has nothing but good words to say about). Here’s a great takedown by Rachel Maddow over the right-wing’s latest round of Obama-bashing, this time over his decision to vacation (when his total vacation time is barely a third of what Bush had accumulated at the same point in his presidency) in the mid-West (because fuck Massachusetts, apparently) in his swanky, million-dollar campaign bus (which was chosen by the Secret Service, not Obama himself, and which will be used for any future Presidential contender, Democrat or Republican):
It’s no secret that the Right’s hypocrisy and charlatanism is only growing ranker and more brazen with time. I wonder, when is it all going to boil over? And what happens when that time comes? Is the American people finally going to realize the sorts of indescribable phonies they’ve been putting up with? Or will the current reign of apathy towards being bullshitted left, right and center continue onwards well into the future?
Time will tell.
