Republicans Work Hard to Choose Democratic Candidate

The Republican media machine is pulling out all of the stops in order to help their candidate. Oddly, that Candidate is Hillary Clinton. In the past several months it has become clear that the likes of Pat Buchanan, Joe Scarborough, Tucker Carlson, Rush Limbaugh, and pretty much anyone affiliated with Fox News are collectively on a mission to assist Senator Clinton's character assassination mission against Barack Obama. In recent months, Bill Clinton went on the Rush Limbaugh show to promote Hillary on the day of the Texas primary and in an obvious act of bipartisan right wing collusion, George Stephanopoulos went on Sean Hannity's radio show then used an attack suggested by Hannity against Senator Obama disguised as a debate question.

Hour after hour, the right wing pundits build their case against Obama. Despite the obvious fact that it has had no effect on the polls, the Republican machine continues to hammer away at the absurd claim that Senator Obama is an elitist with a sprinkling of Jeremiah Wright whenever they can find an opening.

Democratic voters need to ask themselves why the Republican support system in the media is aggressively working to insure that a particular Democrat wins. Clearly, the Republican Party prefers that the Presidential race revolve around irrelevant issues completely unrelated to their horrendous foreign and domestic policy failures during the last eight years.

Ultimately, the question is why the Republicans are working feverishly to defeat Senator Obama. Would any sane person believe that their intentions are in the best interest of the Democratic Party?
