Ex Republican Michael Smerconish "The smearing of a president: From start, unrelenting, unfair"
Michael Smerconish, Inquirer Columnist and Talk Show host "Ex Republican now INDEPENDENT " Writes in this article:
The Pulse: "The smearing of a president: From start, unrelenting, unfair"
It's been unrelenting. The day after Obama took office, Rush Limbaugh told Sean Hannity he wanted him to "fail." Later, Glenn Beck called the president a "racist" with a "deep-seated hatred of white people." Donald Trump's birtherism took hold while words like socialist were uttered with increased frequency. And a prairie fire of falsehoods spread through the Internet suggesting, among other things, that Obama is a Muslim or refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, paving the way for Dinesh D'Souza's fictionalized "documentary" 2016, which characterized Obama as fulfilling the anticolonial agenda of his father - a man he literally knew for just one weekend!
Real patriots vote for or against candidates based on substance, not smears.

5. Actually, 'Ex-Republican turned Independent' is code for
...a conservative who isn't a batshit crazy teabagger, one who still has some sanity and conscience left.

4. I first heard him
when he used to sub for the Savage Wiener, at that time he sucked up to Weiner like a black hole during a feeding frenzy. I guess that was part of the job.
Still, first impressions, and second and third. Savage had choice words for him when it was found out he voted the wrong way and unsurprisingly he hasn't subbed for him since.
Wish I still had a working dual-cassette tape recorder, I would've taped it.
