Morgan Freeman, in an interview with Piers Morgan set to air this evening on CNN, has tabbed the stirred-up anti-Obama passions of the Tea Party as having an element of racism. He’s not incorrect, but it’s also interesting to ponder how these long-simmering resentments would have gone sideways if, say, Hillary Clinton had been elected president in 2008. Because that would have certainly happened as well, make no mistake. It’s no coincidence that so many of these folks, ahem, found Jesus during a Democratic administration. That’s the decades-long social conditioning of the right-wing media machine coming home to roost. So there’s a shrugging admission that maybe President Bush was a bit of a dissatisfaction (unnecessary war = whoops!), but everything else is still Obama’s fault. Fiscal facts (an unfunded prescription drug bill dwarfing any Obama administration stimulus spending) are, you know, just more opinionated science in sheep’s clothing.
