As a political blogger I get a lot of commenters who come on asking me to stop “Spinning” what I write and to do a little “Research” and to “Present facts” instead of the “Unsubstantiated Drivel” that I present on the blog. I find that most of these tend to represent the viewpoint of The Right Wing of American Political ideology.
I have never claimed that I do not spin. I am a political blogger and as far as I know all political commentators spin their views. Yes, I spin! I will always spin because I want to present Liberal, Democrat and Progressive views in the best light that I can. That is what politics is about and that is what spin is about. I hope that revelation is not too much for some of the Reichties who come on with their often superior attitudes and condescending ways attempting to tell me what is what.
O.K., in the spirit of presenting “Facts” which are documented, let me offer the following this morning:
I know that there are a lot of Reichties who dearly detest the fact that President Obama was elected by the greatest outpouring of populist support in a long long time in America.
I get the impression sometimes that a lot of those who detest our President so often openly are really sore losers—and I would like to emphasize “Losers” when I say that because, in my humble opinion, that is what most of the ones I have heard from seem to be. Of course that too is only my opinion. (And probably the opinion of many more who share my views on things.)
The “Fact”—the thoroughly documentable “Fact” that I want to present on the blog this morning is that President Obama was elected and he was elected because the majority of The American People believed in both him and his agenda. But the “Fact” that I think Reichtie would be happy with me for presenting today is that Obama is our legitimate and duly-elected President.
I have often heard some political types on the Right and the far Right say such things as, “America Wants This or America Wants That” and whatever they are talking about is something that is usually in direct opposition to the agenda of our President and our Congress.
Well, here is a “Fact” for those who believe that way—If the American People had wanted anything beside the agenda that our President proposes, he would have never been elected and John McCain would be our President instead.
But—Obama was elected…and by a massive turnout! Obama is the legitimate, duly-elected President and that is a “Fact” for Reichtie this morning!
Now that I have presented a “Fact” for the apparently sore losers on the side of Radical Conservatism, let me offer an opinion:
“If America makes the tragic mistake of giving control of our government back into the hands of the Righties again in 2012 like they did once before seemingly a long time ago now…I am of the opinion that whatever Conservative government takes control will repeat the same old tired, worn-out and utterly failed policies they tried before and the result will either be the same or worse than before. “ That is my opinion.
Here is another opinion:
If what I just said actually happens, then whatever political disasters America suffers as a consequence of such a choice will be well earned.
