I’ve been avoiding this since November 4th, because, honestly, I didn’t want to come off as an avid Obama fanatic. Because despite his relatively squeaky appearance and bland background, I’m not normally a fan of people who talk about expanding welfare into the unreasonable zone. Obama teeters on that edge.
So let’s get down to it.
I don’t want to be overly mean to Nancy Goldfarb, who recently posted in my blog, but her recent post is an example of something that slow burns my mind and soul. And this something is the incessant rebellion of webloggers who cling to some sort of fairy tale hope that Obama won’t take office in January. That some little factoid will impede his ability to say the Oath.
And it’s not really that. What it is is this deep hope that our newest President Elect somehow fails so miserably and so bad that in 4 years, somehow someone like McCain or Palin will look like a Tom Hanks of Politics (who doesn’t love Tom Hanks?). That Obama will fuck up everything without fucking up everything, thus proving how bad liberals are.
This is utter bullshit and totally retarded thinking. I don’t care how you validate it in your teeny-tiny brain – it is the most idiotic thing people can do and pray for. It borders on obsessive with a twist of hysteria. They can’t seem to let go of their favorite politicians’ loss or whatever. It’s unimaginably sick.
I hope Obama succeeds. Let me explain – if he succeeds and does well, then the country as a whole advances. My life stays fairly decent, and the world maybe gets slightly better. We as a society grow and flourish, becoming stronger in this problematic time after a problematic President. Obama doing a good job is a good thing, and can only be a good thing. Because then WWIII, the Apocalypse and/or me and my family starving has been prevented. And isn’t that all we want? To be safe, happy and enjoying our lives?
On that same note, I never wished that GW Bush would fail either. It’s kind of hard not to point out when he blows it, and I’ll do the same if Obama pulls the same kind of dumbass-ery (is that a word?) that Bush seemed capable of performing without twitching. I hoped that everything would get better or improve the entire time. If Bush suddenly became a genius and saved the world, I’d be the first to complement him.
When Obama takes the Oath in January, I know I’m going to hear the thousands of screams of little blogtards who cling to those factoids that are probably false. I may smile, I may not. These dumbasses put all their chips on remarkably weak and pathetic attempts to blog Obama out of office. NOTE TO YOU: You don’t have that power.
So people who don’t want Presidents or leaders to succeed during times of duress need to stop. Seriously, please take some time off from blogging and re-evaluate your life. If Obama’s success scares you, then you need to see a therapist. There is nothing wrong with people succeeding and making life better. Despite their political affiliation. Otherwise, you’re just jealous your little political bitch didn’t make the grade (looking at you, Huckabee fantards).
Unless you’re some sort of moronic cultist who wants the world to end tomorrow because you believe your Savior is going to ride down in a chariot from Heaven and take you to God. Then I hope you shoot yourself in the head to prevent your stupidity from corrupting the world and making my life a living Hell.
I’ll even buy you the gun and ammo.
