Many Obama supporters helping McCain/Bush campaign.
One Citizen's Opinion
Note to all you Obamadilloes out there: “Get over it [expletive deleted]!” is not a welcoming, conciliatory tone.
When John Edwards quit the race, I declared myself neutral. Neither of the two remaining candidates offered enough pizazz to me to take sides. However, I committed myself to fully support the nominee of the Democratic Party. When I did that, I got snarky remarks from both Obama and Clinton supporters.
Thus, I knew whichever side that won was going to sorry winners and whichever side that lost was going to be sore losers. I was right. Right now, the McCain/Bush campaign is opening its web to attract as many Clinton supporters as it can as they flee from Obama. Obama may be talking unity, but much of his flock is talking penance.
Now, it seems like many Obama supporters are taking up after the post-war Democratic Party, and I mean post Civil War congress. They want to impose a form of Reconstruction. In order for those who did not support them to join the Obamadillo ranks, penance must first be done. You are welcome to help us, as long as you are appropriately humble, appropriately servile and completely and abjectly apologetic.
How many times did I hear knothead Obama supporters say they would vote for McCain/Bush, Nader, whoever the Libertarian guy is or just stay home if Clinton won the nomination? Well, guess what, there are Clinton people just as passionate and just as loyal. Many of them embrace the same knothead thinking as you do.
If you are a Hillary supporter and you wish for four more years of Boy George Bush, fine! Go ahead and vote for higher gas prices, more “pro-life” judges who embrace death penalties, more troops for Iraq, less benefits for those troops, unending and unfocused war, a failing economy, a dipping dollar, playground bully diplomacy and more tax breaks for the wealthy, from which you not only will not benefit but will be forced to finance.
Finally, Obamadilloes, as passionate as you are for your man, if the situation was reversed, would you want him to throw in the towel? Would you want him to keep fighting? Would you be bitter about those who defeated you? Unless you are a liar, the answer to at least one of those questions is “yes”. So, maybe it’s time a little of this compassion we keep hearing about from the mountain tops trickle down to the grass roots?
Why are you throwing aside everything you say your candidate stands for in order to make a few, very cheap and cheesey “gotchas”?
As for the Clinton supporters, rest and relax. Count to about one million and ten. Then, please, try to remember who the common enemy is and join ranks against McCain/Bush. It may hurt at first, but it will worth it in the long run (and, if anyone is snarky to you, let me know).
