This has been a good-few weeks. In the last month alone, President Elect Barack Obama has given new life to conservative hope and to Christian virtue – as a Democrat elect.
Of course there has been the relentless attacks coming from all the insane left wing blogs.
It started the day he was elected. On November 8th, Newsweek sent radical liberals in a head-spinning roar when they gave us four reasons Obama would not be closing Guantanamo prison anytime soon.
Essentially it said everything Bush said for years. First, sending them to the United States would give them all the rights of domestic criminals which could even have some of them released on bail while simultaneously revealing the intelligence used to capture them. Why aren’t these good things again?
You mean Newsweek couldn’t find the time in the last, I don’t know, EIGHT YEARS to explain this to their lefty readers?
Safe to say for crazy moonbats, it is now cool to voice concern about having Gitmo detainees transferred to their local district jails and prisons.
After acknowleging that 17 of the detainees were terrorists, Qin Gang of China demanded for the return of their detainees if and when the prison is actually closed. Knowing how China generally deals with criminals, I cannot say I have a problem with that. Have you noticed how those 17 men have kept quiet themselves?
I gather that smelling their lemon chicken as it turns on the rotisserie; in lieu of their own flesh, is more appealing to the young “tortured” group of men.
In recent weeks and days, we keep hearing how some European countries are considering housing a few, Australia is considering taking some, but miraculously not one Hollywood celebrity or tree-hugger has come out to courageously offer up their own district jails or prisons.
Obama is a smart guy. I am conceding this point to liberals who claimed it was more important to vote for him because he went to Harvard over Sarah Palin who actually had executive experience. But he used his study in constitutional law to trick liberals into believing that he could do something which they thought was so easy – close Gitmo.
I have to thank Obama for that one. It’s always fun watching the radical left get tricked into voting for someone. It’s nice that the Democrats found one they could do that with.
We saw him in recent weeks shy away from his “promise” to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy. We also saw him pipe down a little on his promise to quickly withdraw from Iraq.
John McCain or Hillary Clinton both actually had voting records of raising taxes or voting against tax cuts. But the liberals picked the guy who they thought would do more damage than McCain or Clinton would have guaranateed us as a nation.
With McCain-Feingold under his belt, liberals also would have had a better shot at successfully legislating the Fairness Doctrine under McCain than they would Obama.
Of course, liberals are now angry.
Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.
Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.
The great news is that it does not stop here. There are some extras guaranteed to sweeten the deal that Obama promises to bring us.
Liberals, gay activist groups, and People for the American Way are seething in anger over the choice to have Pastor Rick Warren deliver the invocation at Obama’s inauguration next month. He’s a pastor! This could never be!
The Obama campaign worked tirelessly to remind us of Hussein’s strong Christian values. We then saw him appropriately toss out the leftist radicals known as Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger.
Not only is President “Hussein, the Christian” living up to his promise to reach across both party lines, it seems he’s doing a much better job at pissing off liberals than he is at pissing off Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter.
Eyebrows raised; including mine, when he recently stated that he would proudly use his middle name of Hussein as a resource to reach out to Muslims all over the world.
But then I got to thinking. Barack Hussein Obama; as a Christian, who has stopped palling around with terrorists and has replaced radicals like Ayers and Wright with decent pastors like Rick Warren to embrace his own Christian values – is reaching out to Muslims.
Just as Christ reached out to the Jews; Hussein, the Christian is apparently trying to do the same thing with the Muslims – to show them a better way of life as Christians.
A daunting task, I agree. But while it may seem pompous to take on such a task, it’s one I cannot seem to find in my heart to criticize.
The only trouble is, liberals hate Christians. So, just as Newsweek had to logically explain why Guantanamo could not be shut down overnight, the liberal media will have to eventually come around to explaining why the world is more free and peaceful under the influence of Christianity.
