Normally, I might preface and entry such as this one with a disclaimer. I might say I do not wish to offend anyone but, the truth of the matter is, most of the people whom I wish to not offend will not be offended because they’re reasonable. And so, I begin.
Stop it! As you badmouth our new president, your new president, you are doing more than just a disservice to him. You are doing a disservice to your country and to yourself. So what if your candidate didn’t win? Welcome to the otherside. Half the country felt the same way in both 2004 and 2008: I sure as hell didn’t vote for Bush!
Obama became president elect more than 2 months ago and I can understand if you’re still sore. I know a few of us Democrats were bitching for a good while (of course, we had much a better reason) so I figure, another month or two and this childishness should be out of your system.
So what if the inauguration ceremony had a few glitches. It goes to show that even the most powerful people in the country are just that, people. Mistakes happen. And you think swearing in again without a bible equates him to the devil? Then don’t forget the same can be said about Theodoore Roosevelt (and can you fault anyone who inspired the teddy bear?!). It doesn’t make him any less our president so you better get to accepting it.
While we’re on the topic, cut it the fuck out with this Muslim/terrorist spiel. Enough already. We know his middle name. We know why it’s his middle name. If you want to head in that direction, I’m sure there’s more than a handful of persons of German descent who share the same name as Adolf Hitler but that doesn’t make them Nazis, does it?
Of course, I have to save the best for last. On some news show last night, I heard someone say he hopes Obama fails. Excuse me? How ridiculous can you be? You do realize that wishing failure upon our president will only mean failure of our United States of America, of which you are apart. Right? People might want to think about their words because they’re sound absolutely insane.
The fact that people continue to attack the person rather than the policy shows how immature these grudges are and how weak the arguments have always been. President Obama campaigned long and hard so that he could be where he is today. Maybe when you’ve done the same, I’ll want to listen to your bullshit but until then, please, just shut up.
