Obama by James and Jean Anton




Dear Obamaheads,


Would you have a problem if Obama changed political parties?  

Judging from his actions, it seems he would be much happier as a Republican, which is reason enough for you to encourage him to switch parties.   Best of all, he'd still be Obama -- your darling Obama -- and doesn't a rose by any other name smell just as sweet?


Understandably you detest and despise Republicans.  

But you should accept the fact that your man, your hero, does not feel the same way you do about it.   He has made no secret of this from his frequent praise of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher to the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum where he described the man most Democrats despise as: "to know him is to like him."   Most Americans feel the complete opposite way about George W. Bush; that is to say, the more we find out about him the less we like him.


One clear sign of his yearning for Republican approbation is how he reacts to the Republicans who hate him.   Some Republicans have refused to dine with him.   Some have boycotted his calls for a meeting.   Some have called him an out-and-out liar in public.   Some have refused to be seen shaking his hand or to be photographed at his side.   None of this deters him.  

He just continues to work for their approval.   For their friendship.
