Democrat politicians, academicians, the elite media, and nearly all of the drama queens in Hollywood criticized the policies of President George W. Bush. Worse, however, they demonized and condemned President Bush, the man. They called him stupid, evil, and worse.
Condemning a human being who has been elected to lead any organization, especially America, is just plain wrong. Policy, of course, is fair game. Or is it?
As President Obama moves through his first three years in office, apparently the rules have changed. Most people in America, including Republicans, are not demonizing and condemning President Obama, the man. Many of us ARE criticizing President Obama’s policies. Rush Limbaugh was probably clearest when he stated that he “wants the country to succeed but the stated policies of the administration will not achieve that objective. I support the President but I opposed his policies.”
However, apparently even that is no longer allowed under the Obama administration. Any criticism of President Obama’s policies is taken as a criticism of President Obama the man. In some cases, criticisms of his policies are cast as racism. In other cases such criticism is taken as a desire to see America fail.
The funniest of all…sometimes criticism is taken as an attack on the effort by President Obama to “end partisanship and to bring America together”. That one is really funny. Why is it only when a Democrat is in office that we all need to work together…whether or not we believe in the basic foundation of the policies being presented and whether or not we believe that those policies will bring an end to America as we know it?
Obviously over the eight years of the Bush administration, no one on the left was concerned about bringing America together…unless of course that meant seeing the Right “assume the position” and take what the left was thrusting upon us.
As for me…I support America. I support America as she IS and has been since the Constitution was written and ratified… a Republic with a capitalist economy and a Constitution that guides us. A nation built upon hard work, Judeo-Christian ethics, individual rights, and the strength to not only defend itself but to defend other people in other nations who need a bit of support to confront and defeat evil.
I do NOT support policies that will destroy this nation. Everything that President Obama has done so far has begun the process of eroding the foundation of this country and thus the beginning of the end for America.
I have said this before. As a veteran, I support the position of Commander-in-Chief. However, I cannot support policies that will further weaken America.
God bless us all.
