Democrats were RIGHT after all......

I just got this email and I'm SURE you'll believe your Obama-supporting liberal friends were absolutely right, too:

Much as it pains me to say this, I have to admit it-my Democrat friends were right. They told me if I voted for McCain, the nation's hope would deteriorate, and sure enough there has been a 20 point drop in the Consumer Confidence Index since the election, reaching a lower point than any time during the Bush administration.

They told me if I voted for McCain, the US would become more deeply embroiled in the
Middle East, and now, tens of thousands of additional troops are scheduled to be deployed into
Afghanistan .

My Democrat Party friends told me if I voted for McCain, that the economy would get worse
and sure enough unemployment is approaching 10 % and the new stimulus packages implemented recently have sent the stock market lower than at any time since the Islamic Terrorists attacks of 9-11..

They told me if I voted for McCain, we would see more "crooks" in high ranking positions in
Federal government and sure enough, several recent cabinet nominees and Senate appointments revealed resumes of scandal, bribery and tax fraud.

They told me if I voted for McCain, we would see more "Pork at the trough" in Federal
government and sure enough, 17,500 "Pork Bills" showed up in Congress since January 2009.....

I was also told by my Democrat friends that if I voted for McCain, we would see more deficit
spending in Washington D..C. , and sure enough, there has been more spending in just 180 days
than all other Presidents together - in the entire history of the good ole USA ....Well I voted for McCain in November and my Democrat friends were right... All of their predictions have come true!
(And I can't even begin to guess how much of this is Sarah Palin's fault!)
By the way...those aren't Republicans burning the great American flag.

That's what we get for being hateful, anti-American, racist, gun-toting, meat-eating, knuckle-dragging, war-mongering Conservatives.

Geeez is right. I'm not liking this Obamanation at all.

Linda said...

Okay, I'm snagging this for my blog! We've laughed right out loud this morning, and we need more laughter, because if we don't laugh, we'd cry!

Hey, tell me again how someone gets to your blog? I sent your 'address' to my sister yesterday, and she said she needed to be invited. I kind of remember that. Anyway, I really enjoy reading you, and she would too.

Can you get rid of the word verification? It is such a pain. But, only if you want to!

Tom said...

Yeah, you voted for McCain, but not enough people did. And look what we got instead!

Great Post!

Average American said...

I voted for McCain so I guess I'm guilty as charged. It's all our fault.

I saw that in an e-mail a while back. Still funny and sad. We told our leftard friends the same thing about NObama. Sure wish they had listened!

I will show my feelings for Teddy after he is buried, by taking a trip out to Arlington with a pint of good Scotch whiskey...I will share the whiskey with Teddy, but only after it has passed through my bladder first.

Linda said...

A Guy from Brooklyn better be careful so he won't get arrested! Don't they have the 24 hour guards around those graves? Just drink the whiskey with friends, and be glad none of the 'younger' Kennedy's have taken up the torch of 'camelot'.

RaDena said...

I voted for McCain too, although he wasn't my first choice, but I knew that he was our only choice and he would have been far better than what we have now. As much as I hate to say it, even Carter was an improvement over this dude! "Geeeeeez!" is exactly right!

DaBlade said...

The "Democrat friends" still manage to blame Bush for today's problems. At least Cindy Sheehan is consistant and is now demonstarting against Obama's war.

Z said...

Hi, everybody...good points!

DaBlade, a lot of us conservatives were waiting to hear some mainstream news venue show Cindy Sheehan picketing Obama's vacation place: most of us figured the media'd keep that quiet, even after they did nothing but show HOURS of Sheehan outside Crawford.
It was okay to bash Bush but not Obama, of course.
Anyway see Sheehan at Martha's Vineyard on mainstream TV? FOX, even?

Too bad nobody listened before the election but how COULD THEY? Our media wasn't covering the truth! There are people who never heard of Bill Ayers who voted for Obama. ..and that's big on two being Obama totally TOTALLY LIED about him "I only lived in the same neighborhood" , when we found later he'd been in his home for his first fund raiser, worked together, and their wives worked together..TOTAL TOTAL LIE.

Secondly, who'd have voted for this no-nothing guy from Chicago with no experience? Remember, folks, when new Republicans decide to run our OWN PEOPLE are throwing stones like "No foreign experience!" >>>Anybody hear THAT from the Dems?!

Oh, well..we've got him. And he's ruining our country. And we're surely not the ones to blame; hence, the post!

I voted for McCain while holding my nose. Sad to say, McCain is only palatable in comparison to Obama, who should go down in history, (if we still have someone left to record history after he gets through), as the most anti-American, most anti-Judeo_Christian, most destructive force this nation has ever witnessed. More than Hitler, more than Stalin, more than Mao, more than islamic jihadi terrorists, even more than the ACLU!! I am convinced that BHO has an agenda to remake America in his own image. Which is a globalist/Marxist/ socialist/ communist/repudiator of every good and decent thing that America has represented since our inception. And yes, he does have a "chip on his shoulder" whether justified or nor, it is there, Just read his own words in his own book. Of course, I must be a racist for daring to utter this undeniable fact which Obama, himself, proudly proclaims. But putting his own racism aside, because I don't care about his personal feeling, only his public policy. And his public policy, from wherever it originates, is for the intentional destruction of Mom and Dad, The Flag and apple pie.

Z said...

Mike, I'm so agreeing with you!
And, as I say here and at other blogs, AD NAUSEUM, if we had a media which loved this country and was honest about reporting, we'd have never have HAD this guy. Picture Bush having sat in a White Racist church and his being elected!! (of course, he'd never sit in one, anyway, but....)
Just imagine Bush appointing Communist Van Jones as his advisor? That's the tip of the iceberg, right!? The media's silent.

Now there's word that this civlian corps obama favors is gaining ground...and that he'd also like the WH to be able to control the internet; that would mean knocking conservative blogs out because we're the ones passing around the 'myths' and 'lies' the White House can't address.


The media has to be stopped, educated, and then released into the public again; after they are reminded that TRUTH was their vanguard at one time in this great country.

We need a MEDIA GITMO!! A nice camp with good food and exercise, and some REAL JOURNALISM PROFS reminding our media that Americans don't like being lied to or having truth covered up......AND, that we need SOME NEWS that's not editorialized..we can THINK, leave it to US.

FrogBurger said...

Love the post. It's a great example of leftist sophist logic.

Goes in line with saying CO2 is a pollutant b/c greenhouse gases warm the planet. Next logic: human beings are pollutant therefore we must get rid of them.

Anonymous said...

Love your idea of a MEDIA GITMO. Of course they will given all the conveniences lest we be accused of torture. For instance: no Michael Moore movies? That would be torture for them. No Mother Jones? Torture. No lying and spreading dis-information to the public? torture. No worshiping at the feet of Obama? Extreme torture.

I just watched about half of the Ted Kennedy funeral...I only caught the last bit of Obama's eulogy but felt it odd and scary when he told the apparently 'cute' story about how Kennedy had brought great TX cigars to a negotiation with a TX Senator and how he pulled those cigars back every time things weren't going in his direction,and pushed them toward the other senator when they were going in Ted's direction.....

It said a lot that Obama would pick THAT STORY to best illustrated Kennedy's legislative modus operundi...kind of telling....kind of like the stimulus package and all the ways he's paying back supporters..."I'll give YOU something, if.."

Chicago and Boston politics suddenly seemed so cozy.

Just odd that he'd pick THAT example of the Kennedy stories.

beamish said...

I feel so horrible.

If only I'd seen the light and accepted Obama as my personal Lord and Savior...

Anonymous said...

It's deja vu all over again.

After Lyndon Johnson won and escalated the Viet Nam war, bumper stickers showed up that said this;

They said a vote for Goldwater is a vote for war. I did and there is.

We can only hope Obama's first term ends as Johnson's did, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I guess the country needed this lesson... if we live through it.

RightKlik said...

Why didn't I vote for Obama?!

Great post.

Law and Order Teacher said...

I actively supported McCain. I didn't agree with a lot of what he stood for, but I also noticed that he was head and shoulders above BO politically.

I don't like celebrities and Obama was elected for two reasons: celebrity and guilt. Now we're paying because of his lack of expertise in running government. Can we get a response in 2010?

Greywolfe said...

To be honest, I wasn't keen on voting for McCain at all. To me he's always been to liberal, almost a leftist-lite. And he's been way to fast to reach accross the isle.

When Romney (the only halfway conservative) on the ticket decided to pull out, I thought about pulling out my vote. Then they tapped Palin and I decided I'd vote bottom of the ticket.

If we got lucky, he'd stroke out and she'd become president. She couldn't do any worse than the open set of Marxists and Revolutionaries that currently inhabit the halls of power now.

The people of america got the President they EARNED. Now the Conservatives have to try to find a way to salvage (saving is too late) as much as we can.

Here's the thing, each and every one of us is going to have to decide where their line is that they won't cross in fighting the Marxists in D.C.. Because if you think that writing on our blogs or going to a rally somewhere is going to have a positive effect, you're deluding yourself.

Letters to Cogressmen have been ignored by the millions, Tea parties are described by leadership as "astro-turf" organized events. We're called white supremacists and fear mongers at Town Halls. The mainstream media has become the defacto Ministry of Propaganda for the Obama administration, and The Congress is run by Leftists that are the equal of Barry in stubborn stupidity and devotion to Marxist activism.

Decide where your point is, then rethink it. This war for our liberty is escalating.

Remember, when a people wish to voice opposition, there is a natural order to it: First is letters and phone calls, then peaceful demonstrations, then civil disobedience, and then if the govrnment refuses to hear will of the body politic, uprising and insurrection are the last resort. Ask yourselves how close are we to finishing the process?

The failure to finish the process means the revocation of our freedoms and God given Liberties. Decide how we will go, people. Pick a side and prepare.

Nice one Z.

"be glad none of the 'younger' Kennedy's have taken up the torch of 'camelot'."

Don't get too cozy, because as we think it's over, Teddy's widow and Joe Kennedy (RFK's son) are both poised to do battle to take the reins of power left open by Teddy's passing. Either one of them already have a more radical agenda than Teddy ever had. Be careful what you wish for....

Great post Z, but I still think that we allowed the MSM to "choose our candidate" based on who Obama could never, ever be beaten by. That is what ticks me off. And the RNC played along with it. I still think that the military vets that don't like McCain just refused to vote in the general election when he went on the ticket, and that screwed things up as well. Now we get scared out of our wits daily and have to fight, fight, fight just to slow down Obama's agenda.

Keep your powder dry indeed mes amis.

The only way I can see to save America, without a not-so-peaceful revolution, requires us to win 4 MAJOR battles. Health care reform, Cap and Trade, Immigration Reform, and control of either the House or the Senate in 2010. It is doable, but it will take all of us and many moderates too. The elections will be very interesting, and I think, very lopsided in OUR favor.
