Right wing rips Obama, GOP establishment

Hotly energized social conservatives took aim at Washington's political establishment Friday, gathering to celebrate a string of GOP primary upsets this year and promising a revolution at the polls in November.

Speaker after speaker slammed the Obama administration for advancing what was characterized as a left-wing agenda threatening to undermine the country's economy, security and moral foundation.

The fifth annual Values Voters Summit, held in the nation's capitol, is a veritable "who's who" of rising Republican stars and possible 2012 presidential contenders: Sens. Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, among others.

Also scheduled to appear at the two-day gathering is the right's newest celebrity, surprise Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell.

    I don't get the Obama hate. He pretty much told us that he was a socialist/communist and Muslim sympathizer before we voted him in. What exactly did people think the change he was talking about was? His middle name is Hussein and he exposed pro-palenstine views and many of his associates were known communists. His Pastor hates this america. Obama hates america too – that's why he wants to change it.

    So of course he is promoting the leftist agenda. He told everyone that from the get go. All the people complaining about it should have gone out and voted against him. It's too late now.

  7. Surrounded by Idiots

    Its a terrible thing to be around people who cant think past Beck, Palin and O'rielly and would support crazies just to get rid of O'bama because of all the known lies that continuously has been spread by Fox News and the Koch Brothers(Tea Party Originators, Billionarres). Stupidity, Greed and deceit are what Republicans law makers have been in the past. Now we must add ignorant and Crazy to the list. But more importantly what does that say about all of you...uneducated like those you vote for?..paid to blog here or just ignorant? See ya in November..

  8. Stupid Republican Bigots

    Of course all these idiot Republicans easily overlook the fact that it was the Republican leadership that caused our economy to fail...or do you also blame Obama for the bank failures and home market collapse that occured under the Republican President George Bush. What a bunch of idiots to think American wants to go back to that time. You are against Obama because he is black. That is a fact. Bunch of bigots.

    If you think Obama was the worse thing that happened to America then you must can't see pass your hate for the man. But I know... you all are here spreading hate and hoping you turn readers into haters like yourslves. I have a different view.. How about Bush was the worse thing that happened to America, for if it wasn't him none of this would've happened, may be not even Obama would've became president. Have you thought about that, haters?

    There are so many stupid people in America.. They do not think (are unable to) instead they throw around labels commie, terrorist, traitor, explain yourselves. You dolts are just repeating what fat demagogues on TV and talk radio are feeding you. Make people afraid and angry,, make them easy to manipulate.
