Okay. I heard someone say again today that he had NEVER heard “Take our country back” until now as if the words were coined by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement, and coined especially as some code words from some “darker side” to heap persecution upon our poor Obama (you know, the same Obama who rode in on a white horse or more like a white unicorn with the complete support and assistance of media, with almost no experience and even less vetting, with great ease and, yes, the support of the majority of the American people seeing as how he was elected.)
Well, I know I have heard those words before, so in just a few short minutes I came up with numerous times the words were used before Obama even came on the national scene. There are many, many more, but the links below will provide a little perspective. So as to quote the famous well-loved phrase, last heard from the mouth of MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell “you are not entitled to your own facts.”

And my favorites below:
“My name is Maxine Waters. You are the true patriots and you have come to take your country…..”
So, yes, we want our country back, we sure do.
