Is the president serious when he tells us that he plans on "working with" the opposition party in the next two years? Part of me has to believe that he's not, that he's merely taking on the guise of the good loser, holding his cards close to his vest. The last thing in the world he wants to do at this stage in the game is to even think about "working with" these reactionary a**holes. As histor y tells us, that's impossible . He must realize this by now. Or does he? If he doesn't he is about to make the same fatal mistake made by Bill Clinton in 1994.
Should Obama expect the same type of treatment from the one-hundred and eleventh congress? The answer to that question is, quite simply: DUH!!! As they did twelve years ago, they plan on bringing the executive branch of our government to a screeching halt. They are morally bankrupt and they are decades past the time when they could rely on the quaint concept of "reasoned discoursed". All they have going for them at this point in their weird and twisted history is their ability to obfuscate and their power to obstruct. The following two years will see the persecution of Barack Obama. The wheels are already in motion.
MESSAGE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES:
Dear President Obama;
First of all, I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read my blog. I am truly and indescribably humbled. [Hey, I can dream, can't I? Cut me some slack!] Mr. President, now is not the time for humility. Now is the time to fight. As weird as the opposition was during the last congressional session, they're only going to be worse in the next. Remember that there are a lot more of them now. For you to even attempt to find common cause with these jackasses is beyond naive - it is politically suicidal. Given what happened to Bill Clinton, and taking into consideration their disgusting behavior during the first two years of your administration, by now it should be obvious to you that they want to destroy you. And they will destroy you - if you allow them to. Hell, most of these nitwits refuse to concede that you were born in the United States! They're not rational people, Mr. President. You cannot - you will not be able to "meet them half way". Don't be an idiot.
There. I said it. Forgive my harsh tone, Mr. President, but it needed to be said. Give Sasha and Malia and hug for me, will you? And send my love to Michelle. I've got a wicked crush on your M rs.
Here are some instructive quotations:
"I should like to have it said of my first administration that in it, the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match. I should like to have it said of my second administration that in it, these forces met their master."
"Those newspapers of the nation which most loudly cried "dictatorship" against me would have been the first to justify the beginnings of a dictatorship by somebody else."
"Whoever seeks to set one religion against the other seeks to destroy all religion."
"Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate of me - and I welcome their hatred."
