While things political seem plain to some, others are influenced by forces or designs that are outside the understanding of what must be considered as rational. For instance, it's a complete mystery why people of ordinary means would support the Republican Party. Why millions of Americans voted for George Bush will forever be a mystery. Simple ignorance seems inadequate as an explanation. That said, it’s commonly known that Bush won neither election legitimately.
Obama's election was a mile stone for the nation, but the republicans are already gearing up for an all out assault against him. He can expect little help from Pelosi’s House, or Reid’s Senate. Those jellyfish let Bush poke them so often with the scary stick that they were rolling over at the mere sight of him. And that’s the biggest difference between the republicans and the liberals. Republican groups that represent large voting blocks, such as the Christian Right demand, and get, republican action to act in their interests. Democrats, on the other hand, got together and put Obama in office, but any similarity stops there. Democrats have tacitly accepted that the presidents and representatives they’ve supported will ignore them once safely ensconced in office. Indeed, Obama appointed 3 republicans to cabinet positions to the dismay of the millions of Americans that actively campaigned on his behalf.
Obama’s election brought a welcome respite from the GOP's grip on the American conscience, but Obama will very likely be a one term president. He can’t, or won’t get into a street fight with his enemies, not without help from democrats, and Pelosi and Reid don’t have the wit, or the courage, to back him up. Obama’s supporters, twisting in the wind, will not be nearly as enthusiastic to rally behind him in 2012. It can't be over stated that as long as it's possible that McCain/Palin could be handed the reigns of power, the nation is in serious trouble. Some parameters must be put in place. George Bush was allowed to systematically wreck the world's economy. He was permitted to send American kids into contrived wars. It's hard to imagine a more vacant, intellectually incurious, plainly stupid man as president. With the world watching, the American experiment in democracy failed. It’s doubtful the U.S. will ever regain its badly damaged status as an oasis of freedom and hope the world can aspire to. When the Supreme Court awarded the presidency to Bush something vital to the nation was lost forever. Even so, Americans were was lucky that Bush didn’t cause far worse damage.
Obama is a good man, but the conservative republicans will attack him like a pack of hounds baying at a fox. The corporate media will dutifully slant their news to accommodate the right wing’s lies, whether they be real or imagined. The conservatives will continue their attacks against any stimulus package that has a chance of easing the current financial crisis. In a better world Obama would demand the resignations of the Supreme Court Justices who appointed Bush. He'd bring back the Fairness Doctrine and put such fools as Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh out of business. How could that pair of morons argue against intelligent, informed people? O’Reilly’s only defense is to shout “Shut up! Shut up!” when his stunted intellect fails him. As for Limbaugh, it’s doubtful he’d have the courage to appear in a debate with anyone. Imagine Limbaugh trying to hold his own with someone like Noam Chomsky.
The problem that the U.S. is experiencing can’t be dismissed as simply economic. The economy is only a symptom of a much more dangerous sickness. Conservative right wing hatred has taken hold of a large segment of U.S. citizenry. So much so that Limbaugh can say with impunity, over the publics airwaves, "You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed." This is unforgivable. First Amendment Rights do not allow shouting “Fire!” in a crowed theatre, and the same rights apply when consistently poisoness diatribes are broadcast over the public’s airwaves. Here is a grotesquely fat, pig like personage, that apparently enraptures, as insects are enraptured under a U.V. light, a certain audience popularly known as the “angry white male.” This unbelievably moronic element of American society is personified in Joe the Plumber, a known idiot, who stumbles through life without the slightest clue, or care, of how his own nation’s government brings mutually beneficial services to all Americans.
O’Reilly, and other Fox News traitors, all owned and operated by one Rupert Murdoch, have seriously hurt the nation they pretend to care about. Murdoch must be deported. Why Americans suffer Murdoch’s flagrant tax evasion and his hatred of American ideals is a question for the ages. This grasping, money obsessed disgrace to humanity would happily destroy the U.S. if it added to his bottom line. The SOB needs his walking papers out of the country. And while he’s leaving, Supreme Court Justices Kennedy, Scalia and Thomas should be herded onto the plane with him. These traitors foisted Bush upon the nation after Bush supposedly won 329 more Florida votes than Gore. The worthless, traitorous bums stayed the Florida’s Supreme Court’s order for a statewide recount. These sorry excuses for men must be gotten rid of exactly as one would walk onto his lawn with a shovel, and remove the neighbor’s dog’s calling card.
They have no business occupying seats on the nation’s highest court. They must be driven from the country they so maliciously and deliberately hurt. The U.S. was a golden state, a beacon of hope for all the world to see and aspire to. Reagan began the unraveling, then the evil doer Bush completed the treachery. Obama is a good man, but he’s alone. Outrageously he must endure racist hatred, spewed like vomit from the scum known as Limbaugh. Obama won his high office by an overwhelming popular majority yet he is insulted daily by a pig of a man that encourages his moronic audience to new heights of hatred. Limbaugh’s sponsors, his producers, and the majority of conservative republican representatives and congressmen need their names prominently displayed by everyone with a website. They are traitors to their country.
Obama’s democratic colleagues are terrified of fulfilling their constitutional duties, and Obama can expect no support, or help, from that quarter. If conservative fascism is not stopped in its tracks the nation is doomed. Congress is permitting those who brought the economy down to remain in their positions. They’re even rewarding them! This is exactly like handing a new car to someone who’s recklessness just destroyed the last one.
If there were a media available to report the truth, the GOP would be revealed for precisely what they are. Grasping, hands reaching, their clawed fingers grabbing at any material gain they can snatch. The GOP is an utter disgrace, and in no way represents the interests of the U.S. The GOP should be eradicated and no longer suffered to exist. T.S. Elliot knew of them …“We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Headpiece filled with straw.
Alas! Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
