"It's religion's fault." Again, c'mon. This is not the same as "lack of religion's fault" which you may find as a culprit, but not much on Mudcat.
Don, look at my list. Every one, as I said, is the hobbyhorse of a leftist on Mudcat.
On Mudcat, I don't think there are many Rightists who blame Obama for everything. What you mainly find is those who blame Obama for not being Left enough.
Or people who blame Obama since they're desperate for a scapegoat and he's the handiest. This last category would be people who refuse to think at all beyond bumper-sticker level.
But I don't think they qualify as Rightists. Off Mudcat, sure there are lots who do. But not here.
Again, I am not talking about the wider world, just the intellectual giants on Mudcat.
For instance please quote a Mudcatter who has seriously talked about Obama as being a Kenyan socialist. We have however had a stellar attorney who referred to him as a coconut--not black enough in the writer's considered opinion--from the vast experience of the writer, a white man in the UK, of being an American black man.
