We should Unite to Support The New Administration

Posted by revkharma on January 21, 2009

As the election results came in, many from the campaign of President Obama were quick to call for America to rally behind the incoming president.  Fom all parts of the political spectrum came endorsements. Lame duck President Bush did his best to smooth the transition. Even the loudmouth blowhard socialist Michael Moore brayed that we should take the opportunity to move forward in unity. I wrote a little about this in an  earlier post. ( here)

I am an American. I am proud to support the constitution and laws that have built this great republic. The transfer of power we witnessed yesterday is almost a reflex, not a big deal in the USA.  Many other nations still can only wonder at the beauty and elegance. We had one party with diametrically opposed views to the incumbent administration. The election results showed them to have won, and there was no violence, no need for military intervention. George W. Bush shook hands with his successor and flew to his home for a life out of the spotlight. This is wonderful

The democrat party has called for unity. Mr. Obama wishes all of America to join him on his path to change. This is a laudible goal.

During the inaugural festivities, there were still some dischordant notes.  A group of ‘tolerant democrats, who only want change’ began to taunt the outgoing president, displaying the class their party is becoming famous for.

And then, there was the ‘invocation’ given by Reverend Joseph Lowery:

 

“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around…”

There was laughter from the enormous crowd. The 87-year-old civil rights pioneer continued:

“When yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.”

 


If they and he actually are sincere, then why is something like this posted on the official Whitehouse web site?

 

President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.

President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration’s “unconscionable ineptitude” in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips to the region. He worked with members of the Congressional Black Caucus to introduce legislation to address the immediate income, employment, business, and housing needs of Gulf Coast communities.

President Barack Obama will partner with the people of the Gulf Coast to rebuild now, stronger than ever.

I submit to you that this is NOT the sign of an administration intent on cooperation and reconciliation.

Mr. Obama— President Obama, you are in office only one day, this is the first full day of your administration and you have shown yourself to be petty, mean spirited and bent on fixing blame and living in the past. I thought we were moving forward. I thought we were ready for Change. I thought we were “the change we have been waiting for”

This is not change, this certainly does not engender hope. 

Sadly, but clearly not surprisingly, in a matter of hours, Barack Hussein Obama has shown his roots lie deep in the past, with the corrupt, and vindicative members of his democrat party. President Obama did not wait even one day to use the Office of the President to make a needless, classless and vindictive swipe at his predecessor in office.

How very disappointing. Unfortunately, I am sure this will not be the last, nor even the worst of disappointments served to the American people while this snake oil salesman holds the reigns of power. 

Americans will need to work dilligently and tirelessly for our Repulic to survive this administration and the “Change” they seek to foist upon us.

Once again, I repeat a question:

What will happen when Atlas shrugs?

As always,

Keep the Faith
