62. The right touts "the American Dream" and then disdains the two recent presidents who embody it

Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who both had childhoods of hardship, both were accorded college on scholarships because they were smart and had determination, despite being poor. Rather than use their educations for immediate financial gain, they went into public service instead, and rose to the highest office in the land.

And yet the radical right STILL insists on preferring those who, as was so accurately said about W, "were born of third base and think they hit a triple." That's what you get when a third of the country watches Fox "News," listens to National Hate Radio, and actually believes what they hear.
