I don't have much to add about Dinesh D'Souza and Newt Gingrich's factually unsupported race-baiting campaign against President Obama, but I do want to flag the latest smear against Obama's loyalty to this country. As Media Matters points out, columnist/author David Limbaugh (Rush's brother) suggests that Obama may be "trying intentionally to take us over the cliff" in a hilariously campy Newsmax.tv interview that looks like an Onion parody:
Here are some choice excerpts:
"What kind of foreigner do we have in this office, and I’m not talking the birther issue. But I am saying this guy’s attitude is that of an alien who’s not proud of this country, who goes around apologizing to the world with dismissiveness and arrogance, and says we have not comported ourselves like a good citizen."
"What is this grudge he has against America?"
"How can you not think that the guy is trying intentionally to take us over the cliff? I’m not saying he is. I think he’s a combination of Mr. Magoo and Nikolai Machiavelli. I don’t know what the guy is."
"I don’t know that this guy recognizes any restraints on his constitutional authority."
I've added Limbaugh's statement to my timeline of attacks on Obama's loyalty.
