Waving the flag is cool again ...
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, January 18, 2009

Who knew?
WASHINGTON is suddenly hip again, infused with the heady double-barreled combination of a new crowd of idealistic young political worker bees, who actually believe they can change the world, and the arrival of America's first black president. It's even cool to wave the Stars and Stripes.
Really?

Well, uh, when wasn't it "cool"?

Oh. Yeah. When the "other side" was in power. Because, you know, according to the left, he wasn't their president, and he was "selected" not elected (well except in 2004), and he was a fascist warmonger who everyone (well, at least everyone folks on the left knew) hated.

But now? Well now this is their president and their flag again so it's cool to wave it.

And dissent?

No longer cool (nor is calling the president names or being vicious, virulent or nasty, threatening the leave the country or calling him a loser).

So, wave that flag and enjoy the next 4 years (as the left tries to pretend the way they acted the last 8 years never happened).

Expect conservatives to tear off their flag pins, and hang the flag upside down when they protest Obama’s policies in the future. Right?

Meanwhile, a gay shop owner in a trendy, hip part of L.A. was bemoaning the hero worship:

"I’m just getting sick of all this." He referred to his Mac, on which Obama was addressing an ocean of people before the Lincoln monument. "It’s overkill. I’m embarrassed I voted for him."

On the screen Obama says "I look out across your faces, and I see hope ..."

The gay shop owner slaps his forehead and laughs.

"I miss the guy who couldn’t talk!"

I am REALLY tempted to take down my flag tomorrow and keep it down for the duration of this travesty. Actually, I think I will, and I’ll go buy one of the "Don’t Tread On Me" flags. I believe it is called the Gadsden’s Flag.

The only reason the "left" is in the White House and controlling Congress is because of the utter stupidity and reckless profiteering of the right. The carnage on Wall Street and throughout the economy is only due outright greed that gripped the Republican party. What happened to fiscal responsibility? What happened to division of church and state? What happened to making government small again. Bush grew the federal employment greater than any president since Roosevelt. Bush grew the deficit faster and larger than any president. Is this what the right is proud of?

Besides Obama is not more left than Eisenhower or Bush1. A true left would want to reduce military spending, raise taxes on the rich, expand welfare, provide free healthcare, etc. None of those platforms have ever been a part of the Obama rhetoric.

When you see the likes of Volcker, Rubin and others standing beside Obama, it is the left that has most to fear, not the right.

So relax. Wave your flag. Wear your patriotism on your lapels. The only change we have in front of us is a president who can speak intelligently and who has half a brain. Besides, who would want to manage this mess we are in? Can you really see your sweetheart Sarah Palin in a cabinet meeting? OMG. Now that is scarry....

You and I obviously don’t read the same news.

I love these sorts of statements.

Sorry Acetracy, but you have no idea of where Obama falls in that regard, because as you’ve apparently yet to discover, the man has never done a thing.

No... Apparently not...

You didn’t watch a lot of news, either...

Hey you know some people love their country and some people love their country conditionally.

And you wouldn’t want to look dreadfully uncool with a flag when a Republican was in office.

Well, I certainly thought he had a whole one but if his acolytes think this then ...

Well, isn’t that part of the dialog over the last few days on different post with seemingly all the leftie commentators. That they all knew that Obama would never keep a single one of his promises? And yet, how many were arguing how different things were going to be once he implemented all his policies.

Funny, my parents expressed similar discomfort this weekend with the whole media circle-jerk. In their opinion they feel that tomorrow’s inauguration will be portrayed a coronation ceremony elevating King Barry the First.

I kept waiting for Obama to shrug off his overcoat, expand his wings, and gracefully fly up above his adoring crowd.

Anyone that suddenly finds it ok to wave the flag again deserves to have his fingers broken and to be cracked over the head with the flagpole before it gets stuffed into their nether regions.

Such fake (and typical of liberals) "patriotism" makes me sick. If you only love the country when your guy is in power, that doesn’t make you an American. It makes you a partisan hack who needs to f**k off. Maybe to Canada, where you losers always whine you’re running away to when things don’t go your way.

Personally I have a very low opinion of Hussein the Lightworker. The most charitable thing I can say about him is he’s WRONG for this country.

But he’s still my President. And if some lowlife threw shoes at him, I’d still be pi**ed

Sunshine Patriots.

Children is more like it.

Please die, let the grownups handle things.

In an interview with ESPN, Robinson described Obama’s floor game like this: Barack is a left-handed player who can only go to his left. He’s got a long frame. He’d rather drive than shoot. He isn’t much of a passer.

Shark - Good points. I guess I’ll leave my flag up AND buy the Gadsden’s flag.

Sweet! Today’s the day I get to tell Big Bank X that I’m not paying my mortgage any more and Evil Oil & Gas Company Y that I’m not paying for gas any more.

Just put it on his HopeNChangeyness’ tab!

I wonder if Rush is going to bother doing a show at all today or if he’s just going to loop "Barack the Magic Negro" and call it a day.
