VA GOP candidates think Obama & Dem voters are the ‘biggest national security threat’ Americans face

During the 2008 presidential elections, it was only a few kooks who called Obama a socialist, though Sarah Palin did her best to try to paint Obama as soft on terrorism and perhaps even a terrorist himself. Now the socialist charge, the ‘danger to our country’ charge, has gone mainstream in GOP circles. Mainly because the Democrats never called the GOP on it. They let the accusations grow, incessantly repeated by FOX News and Glenn Beck, until now calling Obama a socialist and suggesting that he, and Democrats, are some kind of un-American, anti-American cancer, is considered mainstream among Republicans and their voters. Democrats have only themselves to blame. If they chose to fight back – really fight back – on all of these attacks, from the stimulus to health care reform – they’d win.
