Here's an excellent five-part series of posts by Fuzzy Logic that lays out the truth about what we believe and why the idiot left can't deal with it.

Scary, and familiar. Forget history, forget the limits of the office, forget the constitution, forget truth; it is all about him—a trait shared by the dictators of the world. Choice excerpts from the Heritage Foundation article: Morning Bell: Obama Edits Official State Department Documents to Tout Himself Inserting himself into the biographies of past presidentson [...]
