I am a moderate and normally pretty tolerant of both left and right. I think all of their ideologies are impractical. But I don’t like to be lied to, and when the entire conservative media establisment, plus a Tea Party congressman, are all spreading an outright lie like this, it is time to get worried about our democracy. We need to ask the same kind of questions this reporter did–but not Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh or Drudge. Why not? They’d rather trash their enemies than tell the truth. Obama’s trip didn’t cost any $200 million a day. But I bought into the story and I was horrified. Now I feel like a sucker. Try $5 or $6 million.
