This Is Exactly How the Far-Right Thinks

Karl Rove revealed a little too much about how the Republicans regard President Obama. Speaking about the birth control issue:

"Where does this authority come from," Rove asked Fox's Bill Hemmer. "This sounds like some third-world county governed by colonels in mirrored sunglasses in which he dictates, 'I, the supreme leader, dictate that something will be provided free when we know the cost of that will have to be borne by everybody else in society that's not getting the free good.' "

The Republicans think that President Obama is like a brown Central or South American banana republic leader and so America will become slumified as a result. It couldn't be more racist and effed up. But it's true.
