Recently while hobnobbing at a reception for a Democratic candidate I stopped and spoke with a gentleman. As our conversation progressed he began sharing with me the infighting he has had with his conservative family. The last Bush administration had convinced him that he was not a left leaning Republican but a right leaning Democrat.
"My family has gone crazy!" he expressed. "They have decided that Obama is the anti-Christ." Now mind you none of this comes as a surprise to me. If you read some of my previous post I spoke of the backlash that was coming from the Republicans who have never fooled me with their God, Country, and Family charade. In reality it's about their god, their country and their family and the heck with everyone else. We are now dealing with a party that has no leaders, no vision, and no ideas. So what is their answer? They attack.
President Obama is elected to office. - He's not a U.S. citizen!
President Obama wants to close Gitmo. - Terrorist will attack us!
President Obama rescues the banks. - We're a socialist country now!
President Obama confronts the health care crisis. - Their going to kill Grandma!
President Obama speaks to school children. - It's an attempt to brainwash our kids!
While in Nashville at the Democratic fundraiser there were anti-Obama protesters outside screaming, "Impeach Obama!" Not even a year in office and they are already pulling out the "I" word. It's laughable as I hear the Teabaggers demand less government. Where where they during the Reagan years and where were they during Bush, Jr. term in office when government spending shot up like a rocket and regulations on businesses were removed?
This has nothing to do with health care, or bailouts or even taxes. No, this is about derailing the Democrats effort to clean up the mess that eight years of Republican rule has caused.
Well they can snarl and foam at the mouth all they want, it won't make any difference. Change is here and it's here to stay.
