They like to call us lefties “UnAmerican” for not supporting a guy who’d been in office for years and has turned America into an ecological, economic, legal and moral wasteland and think they themselves are patriots for denouncing the presidency of a man who’s yet to become the president.
These are right wingers, “the other half”. And while we liberals and progressives have been back-slapping and high-fiveing eachother since Election Night, some of us, namely yours truly, have been wondering with not a little degree of schadenfreude what the seedier side of the tracks have been saying about Obama’s election.
As usual, the morally- and ethically-dowdy Michelle Malkin did not disappoint.
And then there was “Clancop” and his merry band of Canuck assclowns. Of particular interest is one shovelheaddan who confidently whines,
“I have no doubt that he will be remembered as the worst president in American history. By far. We are so screwed. I am equally amazed at the stupidity of the people who voted in this liberal muslim socialist. we are so totally screwed. I get sick to my stomach just thinking of the damage he’s going to do in the years ahead.”
…to which our constable of clans responds,
I am not going to follow this belief that he is a Muslim. I do believe that he used to be, that is until he converted to Black Liberation Theology. I do agree that he is a proud socialist, he says as much in his first book, but I am starting to wonder about what other personal beliefs he is hiding.
Ya gotta admire a right winger who’s intellectually flexible enough to eschew one ignorant, factually bankrupt talking point and to supplant them with others.
And then there’s this bozo.
In the interests of fairness and balance, Malkin’s own Anointed One, Allahpundit of Hot Air, wrote a pretty classy and gracious post about Obama’s election. Of course, it didn’t stop the wingnuts from disagreeing with him.
This time, we did not elect a President. We have just 232 year old democracy fail and get overrun by nothing more than a boy-band/ American Idol style marketing gimmick.
Barack Obama is the same terrorist and corruption supporting, racist, compulsive lying, narcissistic, Marxist who has never legitimately accomplish anything in his entire Affirmative Action driven life today that he was yesterday.
He he is no more worth of respect than he is of the office that he will occupy. I am saddened that our country has been allowed to degenerate this far and for the first time in my life, I am embarrassed to be an American.
Congratulating Obama on winning the Presidency is like congratulating a thief for stealing your TV and not getting caught. Not only is he not MY President, he is not and will never be President… no matter what his address may be.
Truer words were never spoken. That is, if they were written after the 2000 election. Projection, anyone?
Powerline’s John Asslicker, after conferring with his stockbroker (no, I’m not kidding) has decided that the plunging Dow Jones Average is Senator and not-yet-President Barack Obama’s fault because he wants to raise capital gains taxes. It’s not the subprime housing crisis that was genially and obliviously presided over by George W. Bush and Alan Greenspan while being seen and warned about two years ago by that very same Barack Obama. It’s not the fact that fewer investors are speculating in stocks and are sinking their money, instead, on solid commodities. This is what John said on the 5th:
Barack Obama is a rather mysterious figure: despite the fact that every policy he advocates will hurt the economy and the stock market, he has been the darling of Wall Street. Employees of securities firms have been among the biggest contributors to his campaign. I'm not sure how to explain that…
Ooh, ooh, ooh, can I field that one, John??? Maybe it’s because Bush’s penis-brained economic policies that only would’ve been continued with McCain, a guy who’d admitted that economics wasn’t his “strong suit”, kinda paled in conspicuous relief to what Obama was proposing.
It’s hard to imagine how President-elect Obama’s economic initiatives can possibly be even worse than what we’ve seen from Asslicker’s hero Bush but, God bless him, he can. (Psst, John? Wall Street’s yo-yo trading leveled off yesterday for one of the few times in the last couple of months when Obama addressed the economy’s ills yesterday.)
Neil Stevens at Red State.com said,
Point one: There's no need to start pointing fingers within the party. This election was on style, not substance. No faction's to blame, and no policy is at fault. We know this because Obama won. He ran on no ideas at all.
We all went into this together with the wrong idea. We just need to learn how to win again, rather than try to pin the loss on somebody. No, I don't even blame John McCain and the mavericks like him.
How’s this for “no ideas at all”?
“Sure it’s a budget. It’s got lots of numbers in it!” George Bush said that on the campaign trail in 2000. How about Dick Cheney saying, “Deficits don’t matter”?
And it goes without saying that no retrospective of Republican bile would be complete without a nod to one of the most prominent bastions of conservative online journalism: Free Republic (Little Green Footballs, amazingly, was pretty restrained and respectful, or as respectful and restrained as right wingers can be). Unfortunately, the Freepers seem to be on the fritz, perhaps because, akin to a dying star, they finally collapsed under the weight of their own stupidity, hatred and bile.
However, would Ann Coulter’s typically incoherent byline from the day after Election Night be a good consolation prize?
For now, we have a new president-elect. In the spirit of reaching across the aisle, we owe it to the Democrats to show their president the exact same kind of respect and loyalty that they have shown our recent Republican president.
Starting tomorrow, if not sooner.
Oh, that’s not ominous at all, is it?
Update: Good news, proles! The Freepers are back and here's what they have to say about Karl Rove telling Bill O on Fox that he wants Obama to succeed:
I want Obama to succeed in not screwing up America.
But I want his agenda to fail.
So the Bush Haters...win?
The left was able to take BDS and turn it into control of Capital Hill, now Rove wants to jettison that in favor of some sort of lukewarm “Best wishes, hugs and kisses”?
Well, Rove might, the DC Republicans might, but I won’t.
If Zero can succeed in implementing his Marxist ideas, conservatives should have an easy walk into office in four years.
I want 2+2=5 but it can’t. it is always 4 no matter what I do
Rino Rove will soon publish a new book, How I turned the president into the biggest dork in American history.
I want the Messiah to go down the toilet.
Absolutely ! I agree with everything you posted!
Rino Rove? Oh, the unkindest cut of all!
