Democrats with death wishes or trolls? [View all]

There's been a lot of talk on this website offering criticism of President Obama ...and response by those who are critical of the criticism.

I was thinking of writing something but decided not too until tonight under a post entitled, “POTUS To Speak at 5:45” I read one which said :”If only he had any credibility when he speaks anymore. Chained CFI indeed. Just the last in a long list .... more to come no doubt.”

And another which said: “F' what he says, he hasn't honored much of what he's said over the past four years.”

I have read he is a liar, he doesn't care about seniors, he is evil, right on this site and now this! Trolls must be enjoying a good laugh at our expense! So I am going to speak, fully aware that I am going to get blasted. Well so be it!

Less than two months ago everyone was talking about how wonderful it was that Obama got reelected but here it is, before he is even inaugurated for his second term, and one would think he is the reincarnation of Benedict Arnold!

A lot of it centers around the Chained-CPI which has generated near hysterics even before the full details have been released. Yes, one minute he is our brilliant captain and leader and the next the knives come out, even before the details do.

Reading some of these posters reminds me of a football team where every player insists on doing things their particular way and if that doesn't happen they want to take their football back and sack the quarterback.

I can't help but think of four years ago when Obama was first elected and how everyone said the Republican Party had become the party of dinosaurs. Oh! They were a dead and dying breed on their way to total extinction.

Two years later those "dead dinosaurs" arose from the ground and stomped our faces and kicked our asses!

One of the reasons they did is because Democratic voters were not as "enthusiastic" as the Republicans. They were "demoralized and depressed" because Obama had to engage in compromise and didn't give them everything they wanted the moment they wanted it. Millions of them said; “Boo Hoo! I didnt get my way. I guess I will not vote. Instead I will stay home, feel sorry for myself and take Prozac instead!”

So the dead dinosaurs came back to life and proceeded to gerrymander congressional districts in their favor. As a result, two years later, even though the Democrats got more votes, the Republicans got more congressional seats.

Now once again we see the same scenario. Democrats, not simply urging the president to stand stronger or get a better deal, but actually attacking him in a very personal way with howls of outrage and cries of betrayal. Once again, as they have done so many times in the past, “Democrats” are now circling the wagons and shooting at each other!

(Or is this the work of trolls as I often suspect?)

Positive suggestions and helpful advice are one thing but “F' the President,” calling him a liar, evil and more is either the work of trolls or Democratic suicide bombers.

Last week, on the Ed Schultz show I heard some woman saying, “I want my vote back!”

Well guess what? Maybe, thanks to her and others like her, we will see the dinosaurs take complete control.

I have already heard Democrats shaking their heads asking, “How could the people ever elect Nixon, Reagan, Bush Sr., Bush Jr., and Bush again?!"

You fill in the name for the next time, just don't wonder why, when it happens, because you have just been told.
