I just love the fact that so many the Republicans just hate Obama. I hated Bush for 8 years. I could not stand to listen to him, to see him or to even think about him. I was embarrassed when I knew he was speaking that I would change the channel or turn it off. I just knew that everyone else in the world was listening and thinking how in hell could the American people elect someone like that for two terms. During the 2004 elections I became so involved in trying to defeat Bush that I probably got a little sick and I know it was one (but only only one) cause of the end of my second marriage. So I just love the fact that the right wing has such a hate campaign against Obama. Now they know what I went through for the last 8 years.
So Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize. Not only should it bring prestige to the the United States, but it lends credence to the push for world peace, a reduction in the world complement of nuclear weapons and the possibility that nations can join together to reduce the effects of climate change through greenhouse gasses. Immediately the right wingnuts come out with: Well he was only president for 12 days before he was nominated. Well loh de da. So the frick what. He was president for 8 months before the voting and there were over 300 nominations. Big fricking deal. No matter what Barrack Obama does or does not do the right is going to find some way to criticize him, so forget about it, screw the Republicans and get on with our Democratic agenda. I love Rep. Alan Grayson. He said this even before the Nobel was announced:
"If Barack Obama were somehow able to cure hunger in the world, the Republicans would blame him for overpopulation.
If Barack Obama could somehow bring about world peace, they'd blame him for destroying the defense industry.
In fact, if Barack Obama has a BLT sandwich tomorrow for lunch, they will try to ban bacon."
So we know where the Republicans stand, the time has come for "All good men to come to the aid of their country" as I typed hundreds of times in my typing class 40 some years ago. Lets roll.
Go Grayson, you Rock
