With the neocon flights of military grandeur plummeted and beaten into the ground by the entire world, the right-wing is now turning its desire to attack somebody, and that somebody is America. Instead of re-directing their efforts toward helping solve the tremendous problems at home that THEY created, they choose instead to follow Rush Limbaugh's words and hope for failure in the U.S. Imagine! These are the people who made so much of patriotism and following President Bush into an illegal war, handouts to the richest Americans, no-bid contracts to Bush-Cheney buddies, torture, destroying the federal budget, and blind adherence to whatever came out of the White House, even in its most obvious mistakes. How do you like your patriotic right-wingers now?
There never should be blind adherence to a President of the U.S. And obviously there should never-never be blind adherence to the actions of one political party. The Democrats are far too cozy with monied interests themselves. The Democrats were far too willing to go along with the atrocious mistakes of the Bush administration. And the Democrats themselves are an embarrassment to President Barack Obama.
Watch for a confrontation between Obama and the Congressional Democrats in the near future. The majority in Congress will mean nothing to Obama if that party insists on following the special interests that support them financially. It will be a very short honeymoon if the Democrats continue to propose plans that have earmarks galore. However it should be remembered that Bush and the Republicans [and too many Democrats] spent money like drunken sailors for 8 years. Let us not forget that it was Reagan-Bush-Bush that created this financial disaster. But let us also not forget how much of a role many Democrats played in allowing it to happen and jumping in themselvs for favors from right-wing big-shots.
This is no time to turn our right-wing desire for killing and empire-building in America into taking shots at President Obama. Right-wingers are in no position to be critical of anybody after what they left us from Reagan to Bush.
It is time for all Americans to join hands and take on this monstrous economic debacle. Let us extend our hand to each other to help pull the financial truck out of the mud.
