South Carolina Republicans Rally Around "The America We Know"

The interviews shown below of South Carolina Republicans took place at a rally hosted by Governor Nikki Haley (R) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) this past Monday. Apparently the attendees haven’t moved past the right-wing talking points proclaimed at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally. Among their assertions: Obama is a follower of Islam, which isn’t really a religion; Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid should be eliminated; Glenn Beck and Fox provide valuable information; too much is spent on education, and terrorists like Democrats. Actually, there is one new talking point: admiration for Donald Trump, who has been spewing birther nonsense and bloviating about a presidential run in order to boost his TV ratings. Are these the people Sarah Palin meant when she spoke about the “real America”?

I don't mind. People like this are the reason Trump and Bachmann even have a chance in this election. They're going to divide the Republican party and turn away independents. All good results for Obama's inevitable re-election!

Hope you're right! A Trump-Bachmann ticket will probably work well for Obama.
