The right always finds something to complain about when it comes to President Obama — even if it means making stuff up. Here’s more of what we heard in 2014. Click here to read more quotes from the right in 2014.
“Before ObamaCare, there had never been a case of Ebola in the U.S.”
– A tweet from Nick Muzin, the deputy chief of staff for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Muzin later called his tweet a “bad joke.” (You reckon?)
“The American people have lost confidence in your leadership as president, and we’re going to not confirm any judicial nominations in the Senate until after the American people have had an opportunity to elect a new president.”
– Richard Land, the former president of Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, expressing the right’s scorched-earth policy toward President Obama.
“‘Net Neutrality’ is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.”
– Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in a Tweet absurdly comparing the effort to keep Internet service from becoming a tiered, unequal system to health care reform.
“On floor of house waitin on ‘Kommandant-In-Chef’… the Socialistic dictator who’s been feeding US a line or is it ‘A-Lying?'”
— U.S. Rep. Randy Weber, R-Texas, tweeting shortly before the start of President Obama’s State of the Union address.
“My prediction is that a forced vaccination plan from Obama and his administration is on its way. This will not only allow someone put in control (so Obama can’t be blamed) to release something potentially fatal into our system, but also act as a tracker – the complete end of our privacy and freedom.”
– Right-wing radio talk show host Laurie Roth, explaining that President Obama has been deliberately allowing radical Muslims to send Ebola patients to the United States.
– Hate queen Ann Coulter, giving her advice to right-wing voters after the Republican Party’s victories in congressional elections this year.

The Anne Coulter one was my favorite! How very fitting for the religious right. Never mind circumspection and comprehending the big picture. Encouraging her minions to embrace mental health pathology instead of reason. Thanks Dan. Nice little collection of “bon mots.”
Thank GOD for the ramblings of the Religious Wrong. They are a source of hilarity. They can’t figure out where the Separation of the church and State are. Try the first amendment!
The Christian church is NOT the state religion just because idiots say it is.
Most of the founders were Deists, not Christians. Jefferson denounced the supposed deity of the one that the church calls the Christ.
The so-called war on Christmas should point out that the 25th of December was the pagan holiday of the winter solstice. The church adopted that day to make it easier to convert the pagans to Christianity. Shepherds were in the fields…that happens in the Spring.
As there was never a command to go to people’s ancestral place of birth to be taxed, Jesus was NOT born in Bethlehem. That was made up out of thin air as was so much of the Christian books.
The Founders came from a country that has a state religion, they wanted no part of another one.
A new exposé on Ann Coulter now available online.

Ann Coulter claims to be an “extraordinary Christian.” Not being a Christian, I was unaware that Christians are supposed to have extraordinary hate and loathing in their hearts. Guess I,can always learn something new.
She accepts ALL opinions as long as it is some hateful option with which she already believes in.
Jerry Falwell and all of the other hateful funny-mental bigototed liars are no more Christians than me, except I do not hate anyone with whom I disagree.
I do not have the keys to THE truth, so until I DO have them, my mind is open.
Sing this to the song “My dog’s better than your dog:
My God’s better than your GOD,
My God’s better than yours.
My God’s better
‘Cause SHE wears underwear, My God’s better than yours.”
Makes as good a point as Coulter. I am for giving those who have less than I a hand up, not a slap in their faces. Guess that makes me a (GASP) a liberal. I can’t help it, I love others more than I love myself. I hope GOD forgives me.
