On the one hand, we have a president who, even before his inauguration, was handed the worst set of economic conditions seen in America since the Great Depression of 1929. Moreover, Republicans set about, from day one, to make his job as difficult as possible. Republicans filibustered their own ideas when the President embraced them, out of fear that they might work and put folks to work. Pundits called this strategy "keeping millions out of work, in order to take one man's job." Republicans have used every "code word" to vilify this president without having to call him the "n" word. While many Democratic presidents have been called "un-American," this is the first president to be repeatedly called "not" American.
