Disliking Obama's Victory: Whining or Anger?

On another blog a writer stated that we conservatives are racists because we are unhappy that Barack Obama was elected to the Presidency and that he is tempted to laugh at our “meltdown.” He went on to graciously deign to extend his hand for us to join him in his “post-partisan” world lest he leaves us behind.

He doesn’t get what America is. Here in this country our strength is derived from partisan debate, compromise when necessary and elections made up of programs derived from that partisanship. It is not some clean and neat, nee sterile, process of cold logic put forth by the Devine. If it were, ours would be called a monarchy.

Ours is a passionate political involvement in what people believe is right. People, being people, bring that messiness that marks ardor to debate, negotiation and compromise. Maybe he hasn’t watched C-SPAN. He most assuredly has not been in the galleries of Congress nor the committee hearings or the negotiations that take place on the Floor, in the Cloakroom or in the offices housing the representatives of our Republic.

Let me be clear, political compromise is not the compromising of one’s beliefs. Negotiation must be from a platform of those belief’s. It is only through belief that one can politically compromise in the give and take of the constantly flowing legislation of our representative government.

Obama’s election was not a huge mandate for a new liberalism. As in 2006, this election was a failure of ideas and the betrayal of the ideals that elected most Republicans. Those Republicans had become your center-left and were, rightly or wrongly, repudiated by their base.

You show your bias when you refer to the death of Christo-fascism, NeoCon thinking and center-right governance because you think “hope” won over “fear” and your desire that we “discontinue stuff like personal attacks and insane fear mongering.” I’ll leave fascism on the left where it resides, but as a Christo NeoCon far right American I trust that in your new world you believe you won’t have to refer to our candidates as grade-B movie actors, McChimpHitlers, c*nts, and senile McBushs because your “devine” will make us non-players. Right?

Since you carefully read my post, you read that I referred to President Obama as our president and then as my president. So as your graciously gave another blogger your “benefit of the doubt” when he pointed out he had congratulated Obama on his victory, you will magnanimously give me your “benefit of the doubt.”

If you do so, I will tell you where you can stuff your smug “benefit of the doubt”, because we aren’t whining, we’re angry. We are angry at what was done to us and what we allowed us to do to ourselves. Instead of whining about stolen elections and the stupid
Blue state people, I for one, have already made contacts and am joining ranks with like minded partisans to right this wrong, first in the midterm elections and then in the next presidential election. This time though, the beltway geniuses will not guide our way, we will build from the base up and stand on principle, our beliefs.

As to your new world of liberalism and non-partisanship, enjoy it for a month or so because we are already coming back. That, my friend, is the American way and it doesn’t need a new world of leftism nor non-partisan lockstep nor a party that dwells so completely on race that they are blinded to their own viral racism against those with which they disagree.

Ta Ta. See you in two.

UPDATE: Tom Blogical of Blogical Conclusions has a direct hit.

Obama Is Our President

And he will oversee the loss of the greatness of America. Our enemies within our country and those outside will begin to chip away at us both politically and physically and an Obama Administration will have to accept it in the name of change, implied to mean for the better, and in the name of 'fairness' as they ascertain it in this, their new world order.

A man with little qualifications and a political agenda so repugnant as to be un-American is now President of the United States of America. The voters of our country threw a hissey fit today and it will haunt not just us, but the world for untold years.

Just as America freed 30 plus million people in Afghanistan and Iraq and were poised to bring freedom to more of the world, voters here in America threw that away. Our enemies are watching and laughing. They were defeated in battle as well as in the world of ideas and ideals, but tonight have won in the world of politics here in America.

They did not win alone. Republicans, and especially those that call themselves conservative, have beat on President Bush and other Republicans constantly through this campaign. They refused to step forward and become a positive part of the process even though they stated they knew the consequences. Unfortunately, we will have to live with what they have wrought which is nothing more than a selfish act befitting a child. They have accomplished nothing for the conservative movement, but they have accomplished what liberals could not since the election of James Earl Carter.

I am disappointed in the American people, but I am ashamed of the 'conservative' voter. They have betrayed that which they say they hold sacred, America.

Barack Hussein Obama is now my president. Our nation's voters, greedy for more entitlements and other hand outs, have not only made the White House socialist, but have made our Congress more liberal to support his socialism.

As a supporter of my new president I must say it is a sad day for America.
