Liberals: You know, this July 4th thing is pretty neat!

...why haven't we done this sooner?

I am sure that I don't have to tell you about liberals' disdain for showing patriotism for our nation and the sacrifices our brave men and women have made and continue to make. Liberals may carry on about how they were behind President Bush in the aftermath of 9/11, but evidence shows that wasn't the case, based on how they reacted to the many procedures enacted by the Justice Department to round up terror suspects. They cared more for the welfare of the terrorists, claiming their concern lay ensuring the Bushites followed the US Constitution, but constantly ignored arguments that contradicted their statements. They demonized any effort by the US Justice Department as racist and xenophobic, and some went so far to dismiss the US flag as jingoistic and that the flag represented oppression, and Amurica's original sin...slavery. They kept reminding conservatives, who were raked over the coals for questioning their patriotism, that they were just as patriotic, by pointing out the things wrong with Amurica...it was they couldn't find anything right about it (You see, if you constantly tell a child what is wrong with them, and adamantly refuse to praise them...or do so grudgingly, the child will believe you don't love them). Even now US Senator Al Franken (D-MN) poked fun at conservatives by saying they love the US as a toddler loves his mother...that she does nothing wrong.

Throughout the Bush presidency, liberals reminded those of us who love our country, right or wrong, that we were sheep being led to the slaughter by an eeevil, canniving, manipulative imbecile and that we needed to wake up. "Feel free to dissent!" they cried, "tell BushCo you're not gonna take his shit anymore!" Frustrated that their message wasn't getting across, they started intensifying their rhetoric, stupefied that people still loved their country, no matter who was occupying the Oval Office. Liberals from WeHo to Manhattan started competing with each other to see who could make the more absurd claim about Bush's alleged trampling of the US Constitution. Remember when Death of a President was released in 2006, and liberals cheered and celebrated its release saying that the assassination of President Bush in October 2007 (the date given in the documentary) would make the world a better place? They even tried to downplay an assassination attempt on Vice President Dick Cheney during a visit to Bagram Air Base in Kabul, Afghanistan (but all we heard throughout the campaign was how people were afraid that B. Hussein Obama wouldn't last throughout the campaign, let alone become president?).

Dissent is fine and dandy with liberals until one of their own is occupying the White House. All dissent against one of their own is taken personally. Just look at the contempt shown at those who protest against Obamanomics. Liberals were outraged at those who called them names, but had no qualms attempting to marginalize "teabaggers," by focusing on the one weirdo, that happens to be at every protest, or the one person who has a Obama=Hitler sign (compared to a majority of liberal protesters during the Bush 43 years). It seems that liberals are stuck in this time warp and believe we are still living in the time period January 2001-January 2009. It's as if the unemployment numbers reaching 9.5% have nothing to do with Obama's presidency...it's still Bush's fault.

It doesn't bother them that the Obama Administration "misread" the economic numbers, nor does it bother them that the "stimulus" that was supposed to right the economy has only made things worse. Liberals are demanding that conservatives and other opponents of Obama's economic plan, give him time to destroy the economy further (funny how they didn't apply that same logic to Iraq...). And it's not just the economy, it's our foreign policy and our moral standing abroad that's taking a beating as well. That doesn't seem to concern liberals. Well, it's concerning sometimey Republican Colin Powell, who cried:

I’m concerned at the number of programs that are being presented, the bills associated with these programs and the additional government that will be needed to execute them. The right answer is, give me a government that works, keep it as small as possible…. I think one of the cautions that has to be given to the president — and I’ve talked to some of his people about this — is that you can’t have so many things on the table that you can’t absorb it all. And we can’t pay for it all, and I never would have believed that we would have budgets that are running into the multi-trillions of dollars, and we are amassing a huge, huge national debt that, if we don’t pay for in our lifetime, our kids and grandkids and great grandchildren will have to pay for it. [Emphasis mine]

How was that hangover from the ObamaAid, Mr. Powell? Had he listened to Joe the Plumber's question to Obamessiah during the campaign, instead of trying to find a reason to vote for him, he'd have known all about Obama's "plan to fix" (or screw, depending on how you look at it) the economy. Liberals can try to paint the "Tea Parties" as some type of fringe movement, but there is some indication that Obama's big government habits, and other issues, may come back to haunt him in 2010 and 2012. I would also hope that certain Republican US Senators take notice...*cough*...Snowe...*cough*...Collins...*cough*

I think it's good that liberals have finally understood that it's beyond the pale to compare any sitting US president to a madman like Adolf Hitler...even if it took them eight years to realize it...

Have a great day...
