I drank the kool aid....

it was cherry, and went delightfully with the brownies! After snack time,( and a nap of course) I decided to write up this little memo for those of you under the misguided assumption (we all know was ASSumption means, don't we children?) that anyone who agrees with the policies of Obama is a cult member or brainwashed. So I would like to take this time to point out a few things-

1. We know he's only human, it's those opposed to him that seem to have trouble grasping the concept that he's just another politician- first you deride those who support him for treating him as the second coming, and then you bitch and whine because he can't fix the universe in five minutes like he's the second coming- take your meds and pick a fucking theory already.

2. Not only do people often agree with his policies and stands on the issues, (here's a shocker) they did WHEN THEY VOTED FOR HIM! I believe there may even be a direct link there to him winning the election......(and please spare me your ignorant bs about believing that because the whopping approx. 17% of aa's in this country somehow controlled the election and made him win- even if every black person in the country voted for the man he couldn't have won, nor carried the states that he did win- clearly a lot of other people agree with his potential as well, though his great tan certainly did help I'm sure!)

3. He could fuck up. We (I, they, the enemy, the kool aid drinkers, those listening to your brainwaves) get that. He's a politician, and the true effects of his presidency won't be known until he has already done the job- there is a clear delay in the results of any given administration- look how long it took the republican party to figure out Bush was a boob! And while I, obviously, often support this president, there are often times I DON'T- either I don't like the way he's handled a situation, or I don't like the basis behind the policy, or I have concerns about the way things will turn out from any given decision. The difference is I can process each action or decision separately and decide on a logical basis how this affects me and how I feel about it, as opposed to putting on my tin foil hat and running around screaming the sky is falling every time Obama farts. The point is- he's elected, he's doing a job, he has to do that job whether you like it or not, and no one expected some of you to like it- because being the loser sucks( and well let's just face it some of you are ignorant, crazy or stupid, or some odd combo of the three and your voices confuse the hell out of you), it's one of the base principles of life, but there are little leaguers in Minnesota in the freezing cold that whine less about it.

4. Calling people kool aid drinkers doesn't really bother them that much- I know it's catchy and it makes all kinds of implications that just tickle some of you (it just makes me thirsty for kool aid), but it's sort of stupid, how about poo-poo-head? or cootie catcher? or maybe you could just stick your tongue out and wiggle your hips? all equally intelligent and meaningful.

Ultimately, some of you detest the man- great, it's your right to do so- but to believe that your dislike signifes the end of the universe is so warped (I hate Tuesdays, perhaps it's because the world is going to end on one?), so self indulgent and so blatantly ridiculous that it doesn't even warrant rational discussion (and some of you clearly aren't capable of such a thing anyway, if the wind blows east you write a post thanking Obama for the disruption in weather, and we all know who I'm talking about and I don't think anyone believes that is what we would call "rational").

They said Roosevelt was the end of the universe as well, people have accused more politicians of ending our nation than I even know how to list- hell the world has been ending since it began- I find it ironic as hell that so many of you bitch and moan about the fact that you don't believe our president can tie his shoes, but credit him with single handedly (and diabolically I might add) bringing down a country that has survived far worse, far more devastating issues and presidents.

So forgive us kool aid drinkers if we don't leap onto your bandwagon and sing kumbaiya with you- we think you're as crazy as you think we are. Thankfully, despite active politics in real life and heavy interaction with both the dem and rep. party- I have never found real nuts like the ones here- I believe them to be an anomaly- thankfully again- most people simply have at the core similar goals and different ideas about how to get there and can rationally discuss those things without mentioning scripture, conspiracies, terrorists presidents or even the smug "I can't wait until I get to tell you "I told you so" (which by the way is lovely- wishing war, famine, disease and any number of atrocities on people just so you can say "I told you so" good goal...lol...I bet the person that said it claims to be a Christian too.....)

Well I'm out this liberal has some kool aid in the fridge and needs her nap-

Wow, I didnt even bother reading past #1 because it was just a bunch of sarcastic bitchiness I couldnt stomach. You can get your point across without having to call people "children" and tell them to go take their meds. Im sure youd get a lot more respect and actual readers that way. Oh and btw- I dont and never have called Obama followers "kool aid drinkers". Kthxbye! <3

Some folks just can't get their minds around the fact that people can use their brains to make a decision about who they want to vote for, support, etc. Hell, using their logic, we could call anyone who votes for anyone a "kool aid drinker." Makes no sense.

I thought your post was great :)

And certainly no worse than the garbage Former Dictator Bush supporters were spewing during his bought and paid for run in the White House.

This rant sounds like you are just starting to realize Obama is a failure, and you're getting your excuse all prepared.

Did it ever occur to you that those who oppose the president and his policies don't actually harbor the same hatred and resentment that YOU and your ilk do? Why are liberals mad? You won, silly. You got your wish. You should be happy.

I agree.I think maybe someone is starting to feel the 'change' hit them on the back of the head...

wow, I'll give you this, you're committed! No matter what anyone says you interpet it into "conservo lingo" and that's officially it's new meaning- it all falls under "what i want it to mean so that my view can remain the one and only true way".

I in fact don't realize Obama is a failure- so far I am quite happy with most of his whopping five months as president- but then again, as I've pointed out, I'm able to have rational thought which I don't even have to justify at my "I hate Obama" meetings.....but if he fails, oh well,  I will say, hey I voted for that guy, damn...and move on...just like any other person who ever voted for a pres. that turned out to not be all they hoped (I have heard it has happened in the past)- I don't have to make excuses or justify anything, for what? and to whom would I be making these excuses?

As to not harboring hatred and resentment of my "ilk" and acting as if the conservatives in this group are just "educatedf- there is no reply that would be adequate to this- except perhaps a decent laugh, have you actually READ some of the bs posted in here alone? No, blaming Obama for everything (whether he actually had anything to do with it or not) doesn't smack of hatred or resentment at all- totally logical and certainly even tempered....lol...

thankx for your concern about my happiness though:)

Go take your meds girl. Sorry you are having a bad day but since you say you are a "mind specialist" maybe you need to go back to bed.

I just do not quite understand why so many take other peoples political crassness so personal. The president boils down to a scape goat. If things go well people hold their breath and say it probably wasn't him or look what he did see we told you he was great. If things go bad people say see I told you so, or give him a chance. The thing is there are what 553  people who make decisions for this country, the president just takes the blame.

You make a good and valid point, all the way around.
