Hussein, the Christian

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.

  1. What an excellent post.

    This is one of the many reasons I read your blog. For the insightful and out of the box thinking…. your best line is, “the liberal media will have to eventually come around to explaining why the world is more free and peaceful under the influence of Christianity.”

  2. Wow Steve – awesome post! You really brought that all together well.

    And truly, all along, it was not P.E. Obama that gave me the heebie jeebies, it was his supporters. They are very Kim Jong-Il esque.

  3. I love that you have thought this through, but I still have trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that this man is a *christian*. Only he and God know for sure, but more importantly, I believe that he is, as he has shown us, very good at pulling the wool over our eyes, so I’m not altogether sure that I buy the act- yet anyway. Time will tell; shit will smell, and cream will rise to the top.

    Merry Christmas, Steve!

  4. Jennifer, you are correct.

    He was smart at keeping the Moonbats silenced during the campaign.

    But the crucial key players in this election were the swing voters – the moderates. Sarah Palin was a moot point because no matter how fresh her ideas were or how solid her record of success and leadership rivaled Hussein’s, he still remained the executive in charge. The same goes for Biden….even though we knew that like McCain (his buddy admittedly) and Clinton, he was a provable liberal who had actual votes on massive reforms to prove it. However; the point is moot because he’s only the VP.

    Hussein was the only candidate who we knew nothing about. In that time, we learned that he had relationships with Ayers, then he cut his ties off from him. He had relationships with Wright, he cut it off. After being grilled by Rick Warren, suddenly Warren is going to be at the inauguration. It’s out with the radicals and in with the pastors and Christians.

    His Cabinet selections and policy hints are ticking of the radical left as well. But he was brilliant at throwing them doggy treats while scaring the hell out of the rest of us – but he kept them quiet and he kept their support.

    Even to such a degree that “Newsweek” wrote an article defending his inability to close Gitmo.

    I am certain we’re going to disagree with some of his choices as we did even with Bush. But you have to take some joy in knowing that liberals (especially the radical ones) gambled with Obama. They have more to lose here than we do.

    Plus, it’s never a bad idea to remind people that Christianity is a cool thing as he is doing now as well by reaching out to Muslim countries.

    Merry Christmas! Happy 2009!

  5. Thank you Jessica for your kind words. And AFW, you are correct, in this case it was the supporters of Hussein that were indeed more scary than the candidate they were supporting.

    I feel like exhaling now.

  6. Hello Steve and gang! I love your website! As a fellow gay conservative and Christian, its nice to see that not all gays are liberals! My boyfriend is in the center/leans right with regards to his politics and dislikes Obama as well and all the crap associated with the bailouts and the general lunacy present in today’s society! Keep it coming! God Bless!

  7. He can reach out to Muslims all he wants, but as long as they think that jihad is their mission from Allah, he’ll just be trying to nail jello to a tree. The Bible predicted that thousands of years ago.

    I have to agree that I’m not so sure Obama is a true Christian, but as Jennifer said, it’s not the call we can make.

    “Hussein, the Christian” does have a nice ring to it, though. 😉
