Now that President Barack Obama has won re-election by a majority of voters, it’s time for the hate directed toward him to stop.

We don’t hear much from the birthers about him allegedly not being born in the U.S. any longer. Nor do we hear much about the president being a traitor, a communist, a Muslim or an Arab (none of which is true).

Rush Limbaugh and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell apparently both continue to hope that the president fails, as they have from the start of his first election win. The primary goal of McConnell was to make sure Obama was a one-term president. He seemed to show little interest in wars, the economy, jobs, education, helping the poor, or a host of other issues that need attention. The midterm elections are just around the corner, and the haters may find themselves on the outside looking in.
