Eric Greitens Has Started Getting Into Trump Territory

Eric Greitens Has Started Getting Into Trump Territory
Eric Greitens, Republican, far Right Wing candidate for Missouri's next Governor (shudder) is starting to send out messages that he's very like Donald Trump. That is, not just wrong but misguided and downright scary. His latest TV ad got me both scared and even angry.

President Obama, the "worst President of (his) lifetime."
Forget that President Obama helped bring us back from the worst economic downturn in 8 years since the last Great Depression.
Forget that President Obama saw to the saving of General Motors which has since come roaring back, saving literally millions of lives. 
Forget that the stock market has gone to new highs during his Presidency. Forget that employment has gone WAY up during this same Presidency.
Forget that the deficit has shrunk, actually, factually shrunk during our current President's administrations.

Deficit shrinks by $1 trillion in Obama era


Forget and ignore that 20 million more Americans have health care insurance than used.

More Americans Than Ever Have 

Health Insurance Coverage


And a lot more. 
Yeah, forget all that. 
Just call President Obama the worst President in your lifetime, completely forgetting the laws broken by Ronald Reagan and the nationally and internationally illegal war George W. Bush got us into in Iraq, by his choice and lies.

Then, also forget that the same George W. Bush totally and completely ignored his Daily Presidential Brief, warning him Osama bin Laden was planning and preparing an attack on our nation, resulting in over 3000 lives lost that fateful day, 9/11. 
Forget, too--if you ever even knew it--that George W. Bush flew planeloads, literally planeloads of our own money, US cash, straight from the Federal Reserve into Iraq after he "liberated it", only to have it squandered because, yeah, that really happened.

How the US sent $12bn in cash to Iraq. 

And watched it vanish

So, yeah, if you forget and ignore all that and a lot more, I guess you could come to the rather bizarre, slanted and misguided conclusion that President Obama is the worst President of your lifetime.
It isn't President Obama and his work and his successes, his personal ones and his successes for our nation, that I find offensive.
It's Eric Greitens and his ads and lies and all like him and any who believe this scary nonsense.
Be afraid, people. Be very afraid when people like Donald Trump and Eric Greitens and heck, for that matter, Catherine Hanaway and others like them are all out there, successfully getting money from the wealthy and corporations, just so they can peddle their extremist, Right Wing fear and even, yes, lies.
Better yet. Get out there and vote.
