unless your dissenting against a democrat it seems.
I try to keep politics out of my blog, but this has really irked me in a way few other things have.
Rush Limbaugh is a jackass, i make no allusions otherwise. However, he does from time to time say something that makes me think. Last Friday he said something that i disagree with, but made me think. He does not want the president to succeed because President Obama does not believe in the same things Rush believes in.
For the past 8 years, the 'left' has said some pretty fucked up things about the President.
I am not one to go after a president, they have the hardest job this side of existence. Do i think Bush did a good job, overall i dont think he did that bad. Yes he messed up with the handling of Iraq, and he did a damn bad job letting rumsfeld do his military thinking for him. What he did a great job of is improving our status in Africa, doing more to help combat global AIDS than any other president before him. Thats something to be proud of. But the left ignored that, instead having something the 'right' called "Bush Derangement Syndrome" or BDS for short.
Symptoms of BDS were blaming George Bush for everything from gas being too expensive (market forces such as increasing demand and a strong US economy helped push gas to 4 dollars a gallon) to the weather being too hot. Terminal cases of BDS thought he caused 9/11 to invade iraq for its oil (which makes no sense when the government of Kuait is almost owned by the US and has a stranglehold on Iraq's oil exportation).
But now that Obama is president, the left is saying things like 'im proud to be an american again'. That bugs me, but its typical of hollywood jerkfaces. They are just like code pink, except code pink has the balls to say what they think.
But what i have a REAL problem with, is the fact it was ok to call Bush everything from a war criminal, devisive politician (remember, it was a group of democrats that said they would not work with him, not him who said he would not work with them) to warmonger and murderer. Now 1 guy, who would be the OBVIOUS person to not want a democrat to suceed with their agenda says what he said when clinton was president (i dont want him to succeed), its something the president himself has to call out. MInd you, when President Bush was being called a war criminal by Keith Olberman, he never said 'Keith Olberman is really a jackass, i wish he would stop being so harsh' (btw that quote is NICER than what obama said about Limbaugh). He didnt say anything, becasue he was above that. Limbaugh says EXACTLY what his listeners want him to say, and the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, calls out a PRIVATE CITIZEN who has merely used his freedom of speech, and tells congressional republicans that they cant listen to him if they want to work with his administration. WTF?!?!?!?!
Am i the only one pissed about this?
That is FLAGERANT disregard for the First Ammendment. Hes a CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO HOST. His job is to want you to fail. Just like keith olbermans job was to want bush to fail.
I am still in utter shock over this. I hope im not the only one.....
