Yesterday, one of my many brothers-in-law (between my wife and I, we have 10 sisters, and eight of them are hers, but I digress!) wrote me about the inauguration and some of his thoughts concerning the new president. My response to him went something like this…as he made reference to Rush and his positive comments about our future, beyond & in spite of a President Obama…
Thanks for making your positive comment about Rush Limbaugh. Here is one of the few Americans that is well known by just his first name. Like him or hate him, he is very well known.
I believe Rush has, single-handedly, awakened American conservatives to their potential, to what we really believe…and he is keeping it positive. He has a way of taking what is done by the left and extrapolating it to its end…showing us what it really is doing to us and our country as it leads us toward socialism. And then he pokes fun at it, showing how truly ludicrous they are. Boy, that ticks them off royally…so be it!
I believe he is a tool and mouthpiece that is awakening America. Conservatives have sure gone to sleep. They’ve become complacent and lethargic! That’s why I’m writing this blog. Many in the leadership of the Republican party need to be sent to the backside of the desert somewhere…perhaps an old fashioned trip to the back of the barn for a good thrashing…but then they probably have no idea what I just said. Goodness, they have sold us down the creek. They have tried to move us to the middle, to compromise, to work “across the aisle,” to give up our standards and seek to work with the liberals. No! I don’t buy that. I want to defeat the liberals, not work with them. They could care less for us, and even less for what we believe and stand for. It’s about time for somebody with some guts, backbone and grit, to call “time out”…expose the illegal, immoral, unethical actions of the radical liberals…clean up our own act, and move forward. If someone will do that, and do it with some humor and humility, I believe they will have a following. Let’s expose the MSM for what they really are, the tool of the left, funded, supervised and fed by the radicals. It was horrible to see the way they treated Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber…just like they have treated George W. Bush for the past 8 years, but nobody with any stature would stand up and say so.
My hope is that Obama will fail miserably…in his liberal attempts to take this country to the left. All we have to do is go back over his campaigning and listen to his promises and his speeches. Listen to what he said he wanted to do. Then look at who he has picked for his cabinet, his staff, and watch what they do and how they do it. I hope they overplay their part and in the process shock America awake as to what they really want to do. I totally oppose Obama’s agenda to socialize America and change it for the worse. To the best of my ability, I will not shut up!
I hope you don’t either!
Now, from the world of conservative commentators & pundits…
Monica Crowley says a very eloquent “Rest well. You deserve it. And thank you,” to President Bush on his last night in office. A good review of some of the good things accomplished in the past eight years.
Taking an illustration from the recent US Airways Flight 1549 safe crashlanding in the Hudson River last week, Anne Applebaum relates this to the new administration. In speaking of our nation, she says, “…the plane’s engines will fail & the economy will tank: That has happened already…The tide has turned, the right has given way to the left, Obama has been elected to change the tone in Washington. But he will fail if he ignores the many lessons learned over the past several decades about the relationship between government and the governed…” An interesting read…enjoy.
Mona Charen writes, “Letter to Obama Supporters.” She says that American’s enemies remain our enemies. Good thoughts that need to be read…and remembered.
Good for David Limbaugh. He says, “GOPers Must Turn Down the Kool-Aid.” He goes on to declare, “If obama governs in a way that’s consistent with his promises, the country’s future security and prosperity will depend on spirited opposition…It’s bad enough for the liberal media to deify Obama, but it’s almost unbearable for right-wing commentators and politicians to jump on this bandwagon, as well..” He goes on to challenge Republicans to have the courage to stand tough against the further socialization of our nation. We must regain our moorings, and very soon, he says. Amen to that…read on...
Monte Kiligowski hits it center, dead on, in “Inauguration 2009: ‘So Help Us God'”. He looks at what caused controversy (asking Pastor Rick Warren to give the invocation) and what didn’t cause controversy (asking homosexual pastor Robinson to be part of his celebrating, who single-handedly fractured the Episcopal denomination)…and postulates that we are in a land where wrong is becoming right, and Pastor Warren’s great sin was to support CA Prop 8 that ended same-sex marriage. Monte says that “Obama will be America’s first post-Christian president.” So sad that we have come this far…down! We do have a culture war going on in this great land of ours, and a religious war as well.
Monte goes on to ask: “If God is real and really watches over, blesses and protects those who trust in Him, then nothing is more important than securing the favor of heaven. Should we trust the God of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, the Supreme Judge of the World, in whom the patriots relied upon to watch over the cause of liberty as they pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor? Or should we pray to the god of the Gay Nation?…If the latter, then we, like Thomas Jefferson, should fear for our country that the wrath and justice of God cannot sleep forever.” Read it all here…
“Obama is not Jim Jones, don’t misunderstand. It’s just there are so many people in this country with so much emptiness in their lives, and they are so lonely that they’re willing to glom onto something that they think is meaningful.” — Rush Limbaugh
