I have many liberal friends. In fact, most of my friends are liberal. And they are one of the main reasons I started this blog. So I will be putting one of them on the spot in this blog. Their name has been omitted, for obvious reasons.
This is their Facebook status: when did saying “I like the President” turn into something so terrible as to make it almost reprehensible? I wonder if it’s because he’s Liberal, or because he’s black, or maybe just because he scares them because of how much he wants to change this country for the better…either way he’s a hell of a lot better than the alternative.
There are obvious flaws with this status. It’s taking all of the self-control I can muster not to comment on this status and start a FB debate (I have done that multiple times before.) But I know I’ll win the debate, so it’s not really worth it. Instead, I’ll blog my thoughts you to lovely folks.
HOW STUPID IS THIS?! Seriously, my friend, you need to open your brain and let the light in. Let’s dust out the cobwebs here…
Obama has done NOTHING. Let me repeat this for those of you who are hard of hearing. OBAMA has done NOTHING to help out country.
His stimulus plan was a dud. Cash for clunkers was a failure. How’s his health care plan doing? How’s unemployment? How’s the deficit that he swore would be reduced by half before his first term was over?
Yeah… I rest my case.
It’s not terrible to simply say “I like the president.” I’m sure he would be a decent guy on the golf course or out shooting some hoops or a good guy to consult for your March Madness basketball stuff.
But as a politician who holds the fate of this great country in his hands, he has to be… I don’t even know. An incompetent, not helpful, thing? Honestly. What EXACTLY has he DONE since he’s been in office? I would LOVE for you to tell me… Somebody! Anybody! GIVE ME ANSWERS!
He certainly is liberal, can’t lie with that.
He’s, ummm, black? Correction. He is half black. More correctly he is “mixed race.” Let’s, again, get our facts straight. That’s an easy one… And one thing I don’t understand that relates to this black comment… In a world that wants to eliminate race, how come it’s always shoved in our faces? Oh! We have a black president! If skin color didn’t matter, then how come we give it so much emphasis? Just some food for thought. I like challenging y’all.
I don’t know about y’all, but I am scared of Obama. Definitely. I’m scared that he has people believing that he wants to change people for the better. I’m scared that he still has followers. I’m scared that people still like him. I’m scared of the ideas he is able to concoct. I’m scared of our deficit. I’m scared of the unemployment rates. I’m scared of him being reelected into office in 2012. I’m scared of the stupidity of some people (of my friends!). I’m scared of the direction our country is going under Obama. I’m scared of ObamaCare. I’m scared of what our taxes could look like in a few years.
Another question… What in the world is the alternative? If Obama is better than it, then it must be Hitler or a scary, 3-headed monster that is going to eat all Americans. Lol.
I don’t think this is what my dear friend means. If I had to guess, the alternative is the Republicans, the Tea-Partiers, the *gasp* CONSERVATIVES!!! Oooooh, the horrors! Save us all! Obama! Where is our savior?!
Good grief. When I heard S.E. Cupp speak, she said something extremely profound… (It’s paraphrased a little, but you’ll get the gist.) “We are all born conservative. We don’t want to pay high taxes or be indebted to the government or have our lives controlled by others who think they have the right to control it.” Well said, S.E. Who in their right mind (no pun intended) wants to have their lives controlled by other people? Not me, say I. I think I’ll run my own life, thanks.
If only my thick friends and all other liberals out there were smart enough to think the same way… Ahhh. Sweet wishes.
