I read an interesting tidbit today and it got me thinking. It was a letter from the fat windbag, capitalist hating, Micheal Moore to President Obama about his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan. It gives you a clear picture of the liberal mindset and the drastic implications Obama's decision has on them.
Read all of Micheal Moore's letter here.
Here's the opening to his letter:
Do you really want to be the new "war president"? If you go to West Point tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8pm) and announce that you are increasing, rather than withdrawing, the troops in Afghanistan, you are the new war president. Pure and simple. And with that you will do the worst possible thing you could do -- destroy the hopes and dreams so many millions have placed in you. With just one speech tomorrow night you will turn a multitude of young people who were the backbone of your campaign into disillusioned cynics. You will teach them what they've always heard is true -- that all politicians are alike. I simply can't believe you're about to do what they say you are going to do. Please say it isn't so.
Think about it. Micheal Moore is the quintessential liberal, representative of the millions of voters inspired by Obama's message of hope, change, and reshaping America's image in the world. Not furthering the war. I'm sure the notion of their eloquent, culturally sensitive, and IQ-busting Messiah not withdrawing troops, but sending MORE was nowhere near the point of crossing their minds. Obama's speech at Westpoint tomorrow will be the biggest turnoff for the anti-war left that it will be something they will never forget, and most likely come to despise. Now Obama, in their minds has stooped to the level of their best bud, George W. Bush. At the same time, the moderates and the right will not embrace Obama for this decision. While I agree with and accept his effort to win the war, I will never, ever embrace him as a leader, and I know the rest of middle America feels the same way. So, in essence, Obama is screwed. I am boldly proclaiming this now that Barack Obama WILL be a one term president, mainly because of the speech we are going to hear tomorrow night. I am thrilled to death.
Now to Mike Huckabee. There isn't a whole lot to say. Who is gonna vote for a guy who pardoned a filthy criminal that murdered 4 cops?
Huckabee, while I like him personally and admire his spirituality, is done for. This is just something people will not forget. I highly doubt he will run in 2012, and if he does it will all be in vain. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see this. So where does this leave us? Who do we have to choose from? Romney? Paul? PALIN? Only time will tell.
