"Hope is what he promised. Hate is what he’s delivering."

Glenn Reynolds said that last night.  I like the artwork myself:

John Hinderaker at Poweline:

Obama has been the most divisive president in our modern history, unabashedly stirring up hate against not only his political enemies, but against private citizens who exercise their right to participate in our democracy....
... Barack Obama has been a terrible president in many ways, but perhaps his most poisonous legacy is his cynical fomenting of partisan hate to advance his own political interests. After three years, we have learned that “hope” is not the word that we should associate with the Obama presidency.

Well, the other side has its agitprop too.  Mr. Reynolds, again:

All I know is that even if Obama ends up losing every state, the press coverage will make him sound invincible right up until it happens, “unexpectedly."

One might say that while Obama foments hate, the media are the ones who package it up neatly and present his vicious bile to the American people as "reasoned discourse" of some kind.  I think we need to remember that - after all, in this country we don't only prosecute the trigger man, we also hold guilty the driver of the getaway car...
