Please don’t call me an Obamabot. Or a moonbat. Don’t dismiss me as a Kool Aid drinker. I’m an individual capable of independent thought. Yes, I voted for, and still support, Barack Obama. No, I don’t agree with him 100% of the time. What I can’t understand is why I have to defend everything the man says or does to everyone on the Right, as well as on the Left.
The President hosts a nuclear summit for 47 world leaders. The Right? All they care about is that he bowed to Chinese President Hu Jintao. And that the atom-shaped logo somehow proves he’s a Muslim. The Left? They think Obama didn’t go far enough to reduce the nuclear threat.
The President pushes for hospitals to allow Gays to visit their loved ones. The Right? As usual, Obama is overstepping his authority. And of course, fags shouldn’t have any rights in the first place. The Left? They aren’t going to give Obama any credit until America is a perfect utopian society.
Right now, Washington is investigating the banksters who stole billions, got paid off by Bush, and are back, making insane amounts of dirty money. The Right? Well, this is a capitalist nation, so capitalists have the right to screw over whoever they want. Even the slightest bit of regulation means Obama’s a commie. Oh, and this mess, which started to really heat up back in 2005, is all Obama’s fault. The Left? What took ya so long, Barry? Whatever regulations do get passed, Obama’s still just a puppet of big business.
Healthcare, the economy, national security, I could go on and on. Even though the President hasn’t announced his nominee to replace Justice Stevens yet, both sides are already pissed at him.
At this point in his first term, Bush was more popular than Obama is right now.
What the hell does that tell ya…
