Some observers from the left side of the political spectrum have been bending themselves into pretzels trying to explain why President Obama isn’t making headway with the American public in the midterm election campaign push. Their efforts would be comical if they didn’t reflect a political philosophy that has cost us so dearly.
In December, 1799, President George Washington contracted a severe throat infection. His doctors–distinguished experts all–treated him with calomel, to induce vomiting, and bloodletting. When their patient’s condition deteriorated, they treated even more vigorously, giving more calomel and taking more blood in the hopes that this time they’d succeed.
George Washington died of dehydration, blood loss, and choking from the uncontrolled infection. His very well-meaning physicians had actually hastened his death.
The following is a press release from the Hayworth campaign, dated and distributed 18 Aug 2010.
Statement from Dr. Nan Hayworth regarding Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments:
President Obama recently made news by announcing that the building of a mosque on private property in lower Manhattan is an exercise in freedom of religion. Apparently the fact that the private property is within only about 600 feet of 9/11’s Ground Zero took a while to enter the President’s consciousness, because it took him a day to walk back his remarks somewhat. If he’d thought of it sooner, he might not have generated such a backlash that even New York Democrats have clammed right up when asked for reaction, and his own administration has disavowed his remarks. Through it all, the President keeps missing why this controversy isn’t dying down.

Statements from the Hayworth campaign regarding meritless accusations from John Hall:
Seems as though even being presented with the question by a bright, youthful face won’t inspire John Hall to say the right thing about Charles Rangel’s fitness to remain in the House. 13 ethics violations apparently aren’t enough to move a man who prefers to sit on the sidelines. This time, some Young Voters caught Mr. Hall’s latest dodge on video.
