Skip to comments.HOPE FOR OBAMA'S SUCCESS (NOT)
Posted on 01/17/2009 5:10:01 AM PST by kenmcg
I went to a gathering the other day and someone said "I hope Obama is a great success". I thought about it and I for one hope he is not. If he is a success think what it will mean, more socialism, more taxes, more abortions, more terrorism (he's against Guantanamo, water boarding, aggressive interrogation)support of gay marriage, a much worse health care system,no secret ballot in union elections, more Ginsberg and Brehers to the Supreme Court, a weaker military due to openly accepting gays, a weaker CIA, appointing Panetta is a disastor.These are some of the reasons I hope he is unsuccessful as a POTUS. Let us not forget he was THE MOST LIBERAL SENATOR, before his election.
Hope matters little. Obama will be a failure because his political philosophy is a failure.
Why did we never hear this back in 2001 when Bush was elected? No one said how they hoped for his success even though they didn’t vote for him.
I hope he is a success : because that means he didn’t get to do what he wanted!
Obama can not succeed when he’s already failed because all his ideas have already failed. We all know this because of history which obviously most dems like to ignore or make up!
I wish I had your optimism. I see nothing standing in his way to achieive his evil ends.
McCain was a doofus and Obama was a disaster.
However, I hope Obama gets mugged by reality and succeeds fantastically by following the conservative principles forgotten by Republicans over the last 8 years.
But, as Granny used to say “If hope was a horse, beggars would ride”
Sadly, with the current crop of weak-kneed, putty-footed Repubs on the national scene, the only way the conservative voice has a decent chance of revival is for 0bama to fail miserably. And, that means more unnecessary hardship for the American public, more public debt, more intrusive government, and higher taxes.
Despite all that...I still wish him the worst.
He won’t ever display “conservative principles.” Next up? FOCA, card check, trillions in debt, gays in the military, fairness doctrine, and so on, and so on....
I am praying for America, not Obama and his corrupt cabinet.
He cannot be successful for the very reasons stated in the article.
*****more socialism, more taxes, more abortions, more terrorism (he’s against Guantanamo, water boarding, aggressive interrogation)support of gay marriage, a much worse health care system,no secret ballot in union elections, more Ginsberg and Brehers to the Supreme Court, a weaker military due to openly accepting gays, a weaker CIA, appointing Panetta is a disastor.****
Even with Republicans lining up to genuflect before him and place a wet kiss on his buttocks, these things will doom his term.
I hope Obama succeeds at the following;
1) Producing his birth certificate
2) Coming to grips with his homosexuality
3) Weening him and his wife off of $500.00 dollar lobsters
I’m hoping he has an epiphany. Not likely, but I’m hoping.
It’s all in how you measure success.
For every globalist, socialist decree he is able to pass he will be touted as the savior of the western culture.
Its just like the failed philosophy of the current public school system; the more you lower standards for all, the easier it is for more people to succeed.
God help The United States of America.
Failing an epiphany, I'll settle for a stroke.
Yes, I know that's cruel, and yes, I really mean it.
Another FReeper had posted a thread about this, and I apologize for not remembering who it was.
Anyway, I think it's a magnificent letter and sums up my feelings perfectly. Kudos to the writer.
Letter: Obama can expect same treatment Bush received
To the editor:
The selective memory of liberals never ceases to amaze me. In the midst of a Sound Off whine, the commentator labeled "No Democrats?" bleated, "Why are people so mean and hateful of this future president? I don't understand this. Give the guy a chance."
Give Obama a chance? Let's take a walk down memory lane. Remember the screams that Bush stole the 2000 election? That he was poisoning children by putting arsenic in the water? That he was killing millions by not funding stem-cell research?
Remember the bumper stickers? "He's not MY president!" "Somewhere in Texas a village is missing its idiot." "Re-Defeat Bush" and, of course, the ubiquitous "1-20-09."
Let's remember the supposed "loyal opposition" Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate screaming that the war in Iraq was "lost," Jack Murtha slandering an innocent platoon of Marines as cold-blooded murderers and Washington Congressman Jim McDermott telling CNN "I trust Saddam Hussein more than I trust George Bush."
Have you forgotten Nancy Pelosi traveling to Syria to meet with Bashir Assad, or Jimmy Carter groveling to Hugo Chavez, both insisting they had as much right to conduct foreign policy as the elected president of the United States?
Or let's just talk plain slander "BusHitler," "Bush Lied, People Died," "Bush is a cocaine freak." "Bush is a dry drunk." "Bush is a fascist." "Bush knew Sept. 11 was going to happen." Just for fun, why not Google "chimp" or "chimpy Bush."
You'll find thousands of Web sites comparing George Bush to a monkey, or slamming him as a subliterate moron who can't even tie his own shoes.
For the last eight years, the Democrats have blackmailed this country. "Put us in office," they made it clear, "or we will ruin you. We will lie. We will give aid and comfort to the enemy. We will leak top-secret intelligence to the New York Times. We will use organizations like Code Pink and CAIR to funnel money and weapons to the Iraqi resistance. We will slime George Bush at every turn and do our best to destroy his administration." But now that B. Hussein Obama has been elected, people like "No Democrats?" think we should just shrug our shoulders and fall in line?
Sorry, no. Your filthy party has poisoned the political well, and it's long past time you had a good stiff dose poured down your throats. "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism!" you screamed incessantly, and so I plan to dissent.
Obama is not my president. I do not wish him well. I will laugh at his mistakes and cheer his stumbles. I want the GOP to block, hinder and slam him at every turn. I want him driven from office four years from now a broken man with his administration in ruins.
In short, I want Obama given the same respect and deference that Democrats have given George Bush since November of 2000.
As The Great One said on his radio show this week, I hope he succeeds at protecting the country from terrorist attacks, but i hope he fails with all his other, leftist policies and goals.
As do I. A successful Obama spells disaster for us although I suspect disaster will be the end result regardless. It will be interesting to observe the medias reaction to his failures. They will doubtlessly put a positive spin on every negative outcome or blame someone or something else for it. As long as there is one Republican left in D.C. they will always have someone to blame.
That statement could have a double meaning, actually. I mean do you want success for his liberal agenda, or do you want success for him in turning this country around in its economic crisis and have it improve. So, one would have to qualify that....
I would like to see the country get better, and out of this economic crisis, but then — doesn’t that make Obama look good? If so, then I suppose people would rather let the country get worse and worse for four years — so they can hammer Obama for it... right?
And, on top of that, one might even consider that this country “got Obama” because it’s a judgment from God, for all the evils that we’ve perpetrated in this society (that doesn’t mean everyone, but “as a country”). So, if it’s a judgment from God, that we got Obama, I don’t know how quick that’s going to turn around — without “national repentance” (doesn’t seem likely to me...).
Thanks Christopher. Me too!
