Folks, many of whom are old friends on this blog, are miffed, peeved, perturbed, pissed off, or downright grumpy about the recent thread of articles about Mr. Obama. I hope you appreciate I am not censoring those who think Susan and I are full of shit. I welcome your opinion and dissent.
I am not going to force you into some sort of Orwellian Kossack public confession about your mean spirit or ugly talk before I let you post. I will take down material that involves a threat of violence against anyone (telling someone to kiss your ass is not a threat of violence). I also realize in the heat of the moment tempers flare. I try to moderate as I can to keep that in check.
Finally, I am very concerned about Obama’s lack of experience and the adulation surrounding his campaign. I bought into the nonsense that George Bush was a “uniter” and not a “divider.” I ignored his failed business enterprises. I overlooked his ignorance of foreign affairs. Well folks, never again. And in my book, Obama shares too many of the Bush qualities. I find it creepy and alarming. A guy as weak as Obama, who has a track record of making bad decisions while currying favor with the likes of Rezko and Ayers, bugs the hell out of me.
So, for Oldtree and others, that’s why I’m doing what I’m doing.
