Inauguration Day, History Is Made.

Today we have inaugurated our 44th President. He is also our first African~American President. This is historic. This is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream finally come to fruition. That is as far as my praise goes on this subject.

I didn't vote for Obama. I am a Republican/Libertarian and proud of it. I am also scared for our country. President Obama is a Socialist. Socialism only works in theory. Every Communist country started out as Socialist Republic. Don't believe me? Go look it up. U.S.S.R. stood for Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. "Nuff said.

I have no problem with the color of his skin. I have a problem with President Obama's experience, or lack thereof, on matters of state. He has no foreign policy experience either. The Cabinet he picked is, well, have you seen their questionable records? But my biggest problem, so far anyway, is the fact that he is spending $140 million dollars on Inaugural Balls and all the accoutrement's that go with them. Ummm, isn't our economy in the toilet? Couldn't that money be used to help stabilize things a bit? Maybe a bailout for us little people? I am appalled. Really.

There has been a big deal made about President Obama taking the same route from Illinois to Washington, D.C. that President Abraham Lincoln took in 1861 . OK, that is interesting. But don't the Democrats realize that Lincoln did not want to free the slaves, he only did so to try to save the Union during the Civil War?
"In his written response to Horace Greeley's editorial (see below), after having already discussed a draft of the Emancipation Proclamation with his cabinet, he says, "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that...I have here stated my purpose according to my view of official duty; and I intend no modification of my oft-expressed personal wish that all men everywhere could be free." In actual practice he freed all the slaves in confederate territories. Go here for more on this subject.
This misinterpretation of history does not surprise me. Most people believe that Christopher Columbus discovered America. He did not. He discovered the Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti, the coast of South America, Central America and the West Indies. But he also died convinced that he had only discovered the coast of Asia, not a whole other continent. Amerigo Vespucci discovered America, hence the name AMERICA.

The Liberal Democrats have also adopted Martin Luther King, Jr. as their defacto mascot. I find this absolutely hilarious considering that Dr. King was a registered REPUBLICAN, a fact that everyone on the left pretends is not true. Interesting how they like to twist historical facts to their own purposes, don't you think? And they accuse us Republicans of manufacturing facts not in evidence. HA!

While I am proud that this country is progressive enough to elect an African~American to its highest office, I am not sure the choice of character was a good one. He does hail from a state known for being filled with crooked politicians and one of the highest crime rates in America, even though handgun ownership was outlawed in Illinois in the early 1980's. I will give our new president a chance (well, what choice do I have?). But I am worried. I hope he proves me wrong, but I ain't bettin' on it. By the way, what exactly does it say about this nation that it would elect a black man as president before a woman? Makes you think, huh?

I'm so over all the hoopla and he hasn't even been sworn in yet. Let's face it folks, he got elected because he's black. That's as stupid a reason to vote for someone as voting for someone because they're white!!!

He had 147 days in Congress as a JUNIOR Senator. That's it. That's his whole experience. That makes him qualified to be President? The leader of the free world? The most powerful man in the world? The one who can authorize the use of nuclear weapons??? Are you kidding me??? But he's black....so somehow that erases the FACT that he has next to no experience in government. He was already involved in political scandal before taking office!!!

He's made so many promises to so many people. There are poor, uneducated blacks that seriously believe that he's just going to sit down and start handing out checks to them. They are going to be "rich" soon because one of "their own" is in office. I live in the south; I hear people talk. THEY TRULY BELIEVE THIS!!

He has ideas for program after program after program. La-di-freakin'-da!! Where's the money going to come from?? TAXES!!! Take money away from people who are working to give to those who won't - it's the Democraptic way, and always has been.

*sigh* Hang on folks, it's going to be a real bumpy ride. And that makes me really sad.

And for the record, I'm really, utterly sick of the term "African-American"!!!!! Which is it? African? Or American? Because you can't have it both ways. And not all blacks are even from Africa!!!! No one has a problem with calling white people white, but it's politically incorrect to call black people black.

So be all excited if that's your thing. The FACT is that we will soon have a Socialist, rascist President who happens to be black. And being the wife of a soldier, while our country is at war (two wars to be precise), with a Commander-In-Chief with no military experience, or political savy makes me extra worried for the future.

OK, I'm done. (still shaking my head at the stupid idiots who elected this man though!)

AMEN! And really - he isn't full blooded black and wasn't raised in that environment. Under any other circumstances he'd not be accepted by the black community....

Oh my, oh my, oh my, could I go on and on about all this! Where to start?

Like you, I did not vote for Obama, and I live in the state he represented! I don't believe he thinks he's a Socialist, but all of his policy ideas and plans are Socialist in nature. Everything will be government run and paid for by the rich.

He has lots of experience! He was a community organizer, isn't that enough to get you to the highest office in the land? Today they're talking about an $800+ billion stimulus package, where individuals would get $500 and families would get $1000. Wow! Like that'll really help people get out of debt! And all those infrastructure projects? Most will take at least 2 years to get started.

I never knew Dr. King was a Republican! That is very interesting information to know.

President Obama claims innocence regarding his association with a known terrorist, listens for YEARS to a preacher that hates white people, and appoints all sorts of Chicago cronies to positions as Cabinet members or advisers. I don't for a minute believe Rahm Emmanuel was not involved in the discussions with Blago about Obama's Senate seat! And that's a discussion for an entirely separate comment.

I will not be like some people who claim he is not "my" President. We may not support his policies, his view of America, or his plans to improve our lives, but he is OUR President. Good or bad. Barring an impeachment or assassination, we're stuck with him for the next four years. Let's hope some conservatives in the House and Senate start standing up to the looney Left and their plans to destroy this great country.

I won't touch this one. I am totally pro-Obama and disagree with nearly everything you said. So, I will just politely disagree and be on my way. :)
