In his April 2 Newsmax column -- also published by the Washington Examiner -- Michael Reagan writes of "Barack Obama and his sorry conglomeration of far-out liberal confederates" who are "now polluting the government":
America’s industrial heartland, the storied fruited plain, is about to become the world’s largest ghost town as many of the nation’s most talented and wealthiest citizens contemplate fleeing for the hills — or in this case, other nations where they will be greeted with welcome arms.
Growing numbers of Americans are going to be pulling up stakes and fleeing to more accommodating areas of the world, taking their factories and businesses and wealth with them.
Reagan offers no evidence that this is, in fact, the case, nor does he name anyone who is purportedly contemplating such a move. But then, he's more interested in demonizing Obama than relating facts, joining his fellow right-wing brethren in hitting the button on Godwin's Law:
The prospect of paying $50 for a loaf of bread no longer is a potential nightmare, but a certainty. As the dollar loses its value, the cost of the goods it will buy soars. That’s just economic reality.
And when it happens, good old Dr. Obama will be there with the snake oil remedy that sold so well in Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.
