from an email I received

purportedly from someone in the Czech Republic

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

I would be quite surprised if the same thing weren't spread around by e-mail with Bush instead of Obama.

I wonder what our non-American members have to say about this.

Five bucks says this same email has circulated about the last four presidents, with numerous alleged source countries.

Obama is indeed a symptom of a disease. He's a fever. An immune response to the infection that is conservatism.

The posting of chain letters on this forum should be banned. Intelligent conversation never results.

I'd point out products that make fun of Bush but that's BUSH BASHING WHY CANT YOU LIBERALS MOVE ON?

Like Bush is somehow off-limits because it hurts the feeling of poor conservatives who voted him or something. But Obama? Fair game!
Bush isn't president now, the affirmative action messiah is

So it's only ok to make fun of CURRENT presidents. Ok. Too bad, because I had so many Taft jokes lined up. But hey, if it offends you...

Wow, two misconceptions in one post. You feel that Obama is painted as a messiah by Liberals, he is not at all. In fact the only people that have treated Obama as a messiah are conservatives. Hmmm. Also the misconception that Obama won because he was black. He did not. He won because he was a better candidate.

Obama isn't a sympton, he is part of the cure of the disease this country has of neoconservative policies.

I am waiting for these people who call liberalism a disease, to declare that liberals persecute those with other political ideas besides theirs. Such as Glenn Beck.

Oh wait, that already happened.

Why are you injecting race??

Why do you feel that the only reason to be annoyed with the president is because of the color of his skin??

you apparently ignored hours of footage taken of obama slurpers right before and after the election--the big bash in January, 2009 had lots of people treating the man like the second coming of Ras Tafari

what's black got to do with it? Incompetence is not the province of one race. If the man was pro america, pro net taxpayer and anti socialist I'd write him a big check for his reelection effort

there is as much factual information in THIS as there is in the bull**** email you recieved from someone who hates the president of the united states - a putative Czech with remarkable facility with american idiom who does not pretend to support his hatred with any facts. and you back it up with MORE conservative blog blather.

i have to wonder what made him send it to you... it wasn't policy, he mentions none.

so... you regurgitate MORE unqualified radical conservative propaganda in support of a 'foreigner' who has attacked your president. i have to wonder at your motives, too.

Obama sucks as a president/ He was unqualified to be president and used dirty tricks to win his senate seat. He appeals to white guilt, black racism, class envy and anti American idiocy.

And A friend sent it to me but he didn't write it. That you worship obama is funny

that you got upset over it is priceless
