The Republicans should grow a pair and buy billboards and radio and video time, anything to break the censorship the Democratic Media try to impose, to get out the story and weld into the public mind the fact that the Democratic Party is to be judged by Obama and Obama is to be judged by the insulting, incompetent, juvenile, abusive, disturbed, corrupt, hateful people he associates with. They should be unable to enter a restaurant. They should all become unemployable.
