Ah Tony "KKK" Perkins, always one for disingenuous commentary, flat out lies and wildly disconnected false equivalencies........and today's tweet is no different.  Now, for those not following the absolutely ridiculous hostage taking going on in the U.S., there is a new sophistry laden meme being pushed by the far right in 'Murika.  It goes something like this: Obama is a terrorist loving man who will negotiate with "bad guys" but not with republicans in the House.  Of course, what they fail to mention is that they, the republicans, are the bad guys and it is they who have taken the U.S. government hostage.  And why? well Obamacare of course.  The Affordable Care Act (ACA) AKA Obamacare was a bill presented to the House, was given ascent and signed into law by the President and was further codified by the Supreme Court of the United States.  These facts are key to understanding the resounding failure that is the republican party's shutting down the U.S. government.  You see, the republicans, having lost the election, lost the legal battle and lost the confidence of the citizens of the U.S., still see themselves as the governing party and further, in a pique of hubris, are demanding the president negotiate a law that has already been approved, vetted and confirmed by the SCOTUS.  It's a temper tantrum for the ages and will....nay.....has resulted in a loss of confidence in the U.S. by much of the financial world.  Comparing Pres. Obama's refusal to enable the petulance of a rump party as being on par with being pro-terrorist is the ultimate in false equivalency. The TTM is impressed........NOT.



end of line......
