Erickson could not help but speak the truth, but then, it was probably during the time of the Republican primaries. It still stands, and as a matter of fact, Romney himself has confirmed it with what he says!
The one thing about Erickson is that I think he is projecting his own dislike about Barack Obama: he doesn't like Barack Obama, and I am sure there are others who don't like him for any variety of reasons, for example, his biracial heritage, and the fact that he has a much wider vision of the world than they can ever hope to have.
Other than that, I think an awful lot of people like Obama. They had at the last election, and still do, and the only doubt about that is what the Republican lies and misleading statements and slurs have spread about him.
They, the Republicans, should be so lucky to have such an astute, intelligent, comprehensive in his outlook and judgment, and yet, a leader who can make very hard decisions. The man is a real man, and a real president: not just who wants the title and the prestige that goes with it. He wants what is best for America, this most unique of countries in this particular era.
Otherwise, what we would witness would be the fateful turn from the times Rome was a bona fide republic to when it became a despotic tyrannical country, who entertained and fed their masses, who had no say in anything, and in all other ways things had degenerated.
Would that not be a pity: but that is what Romney, and Republicans like him, or worse, like Gingrich, some far right figures, Carl Rove, etc. would have in mind, and indeed did have in mind.
