ruthless right Could you explain what "the ruthless right" means in this sentence? and whose right is it? (It is an article about US president candidate Obama.) "The ruthless right wore him out with race-baited attacks, subtly coded in symbolism and inference, and distributed ad nauseam on the Internut."

In this context, the "ruthless right" means ruthless conservatives. In American politics, the "left" are liberals and the "right" are conservatives.

i have no idea on whose ruthless right without context. i just can realise by your sentence that the right is not good. it did harm to someone known as him.
