Members of the political left are masters of disguise. They throw out stories that are insignificant compared to the big picture and try to overemphasize these in order to cover up the real stories.

Since the Democrats took over Congress in 2006, they have worsened our economy and way of life. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were the main culprits in our housing crisis, which led to the economic downturn, and the Democrats protected those failed institutions and continue to do so. The Obama administration has confiscated financial institutions, car manufacturers, student loans and health care, and now it’s trying to control our energy.

The left always plays politics at the expense of our country.Look at the Gulf oil spill:Rather than stop the oil leakage and protect the people of the Gulf by listening to the governors of the affected states, Mr. Obama chose to protect the unions and lawyers and push an environmental agenda. The president and the Democrats see the Gulf oil spill as an opportunity rather than a disaster, and now they see Arizona as another self-serving opportunity.

We need to focus on the issues that matter - and look out for the attacks continuously launched by the left.
