    Must Conservatives Rally Round the Messiah?

    "I'll Always Remember "Idiots Child Bush "!"

    No because the left's vision of "unity" means surrender in the war of ideas.

    Several associates of mine, aware of my red-state predilections, approached me after the black day that was November 4 and demanded my allegiance Im serious proclaiming, Hes your president so you should stand behind him.

    I thanked them but rebuffed their suggestion. As mentioned above, none of these individuals ever saw fit to do the same for our 40th, 41st, and 43rd presidents, so by what precedent should they expect special treatment for their Barackstar? None of which I am aware. Their hypocrisy is hardly surprising.

    The lefts approach to their opposition lacks consistency, honor, and responsibility as they see those traits as being anachronistic and possibly even Eurocentric (the horror!).

    To hardened Obamabots, all questions regarding their saviors goals are illegitimate.

    Those who battle them either possess false consciousnesses or are evil, and should this dichotomy not be immediately evident, then all heretics will be dismissed as rednecks, evangelists, racists, or whatever ism is on the menu.


    Soon Barack Obama will be inaugurated as our president. His victory was a major happening and had coattails. Indeed, the Republican Party was handed a massive defeat. Their fall provided the Democrats with a stranglehold position in both chambers of Congress. Despite not reaching the coveted 60 filibuster-proof Senate seats, the highly evident malleability of some GOP politicians and their susceptibility to the RINO (Republican in Name Only) impulse suggest that some moderates such as Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe will assist leftist politicians in their plans anyway. The exact nature of these plans is unknown assuming one takes the president-elects campaign promises seriously. However, if one judges Mr. Obama by his deeds and his history, America is in store for a siege engine of leftism. That the impending avalanche will be followed by a liberal crack-up is of little consolation.

    What is most perturbing about the election carnage is that, while their victory assures that the political left can forget about the minority party entirely, they continue to be obsessed with their opposition. That few conservatives will have much of a say over what transpires during the next four years is irrelevant. The eyes of Democrats remain affixed to the starboard side of the political spectrum. Obama expects conservatives to get religion, specifically his Change.gov religion, and guarantee that their own beliefs do not venture into the samizdat-place of ideas. We must reserve spots at The Ones pride parade, learn to stop worrying, and love the left. If it takes a lobotomy for us to get with the program then so be it. No doubt Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will assist us with public funding should we require such an operation.

    On his night of yore, the president-elect reminded his serfs that it was time to move beyond judging him critically: Let us resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.


    His partisan statement was devoid of ambiguity. When one is pole-vaulted to the top of a status hierarchy and then defines all correction as being petty and immature, then the only conceivable alternative is for us to express fealty to the leader who, in this case, conveniently happens to be Barack Obama.

    I wonder if he felt the same way in 2000 and 2004 when George W. Bush sat in the position he now occupies. Ah, but to ask the question is to answer it.

    Sorry to disappoint the now undisputed pal of William Ayers, but his promotion will neither change water into wine nor make conservatives embrace socialism.

    I think it's funny that so many of the things we're worried that Obama will do are things that either Bush did or McCain said he would do.

    I do not like Obama. However, he is the president-elect, and regardless of whom you blame, he is inheriting a unique set of problems that he and his cohorts will have to take action on, and those actions will have consequences for America and everyone in America. Rather than just adopting a "he's a Democrat, ergo everything he says and does is wrong" mentality, I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. We survived Clinton, we survived Bush, we can survive Obama.

    According to dictionary.com, 'support' is:

    3. to undergo or endure, esp. with patience or submission; tolerate.

    4. to sustain...under trial or affliction.
    Applying those definitions, I will support President Obama.
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    According to those defs, I will ENDURE!

    The messiah stands for everything I hate. All those liberal policies and the degradation of society! Bah, I will just have to endure.

    Seems a lot of the shoe being on the other foot to me. I don't really see how this is any different than all the idiotic things the left said about Bush the last 8 years. We should be better than that.

    Let's face it, Obama won. He is the elected next President of the United States. He's my President. I'll support him in the things on which we agree, and I'll oppose him on the things on which we do not. I will work to diminish his power in Congress in 2010, and I will support his opponent in 2012. I will not engage in the "end of the world" nonsense I've seen going on in some quarters, and I will not act as childishly as the far left has with Bush in power.

    I will not support him just because he is holding the office. Once he gives me a reason to support him in anything, I will support him in that. At this moment he has none of my support in anything but my complete disdain in everything.

    That's your choice to make. I believe in our system of government, and the electorate has spoken.

    For the record, I truly hope that Obamaand the current Congress succeeds in solving America's problems, however I also truly hope he fails in implementing many of the his policies he plans on pushing through

    Yes the electorate has spoken and almost half of those who voted did not vote in support of him. I am among those. And I do not believes those who supported Obama made my choice for me in who I am to support. What should I support Moon? His tax increases? His coming assault on small business? His willingness to kowtow to the rest of world at our expense? His refusal to allow drilling for oil domestically? His willingness to buy into Global Warming farce? His contempt for the unborn? Tell me. What am I supposed to support here?

    You should go back and re-read my first post in this thread. I didn't say anything about supporting policies you don't believe in.
