While I’m orbiting a different sun . . .

Listen up and stop yer whinnin'!!

(It appears the world goes on even as I take time off. Hmmmm. )

Here’s a terrific article by Frank Schaeffer for those of us who aren’t sufficiently enthusiastic about the mid terms and about our President:

Obama Will Triumph – So Will America By Frank Schaeffer

“Before he’d served even one year President Obama lost the support of the easily distracted left and engendered the white hot rage of the hate-filled right. But some of us, from all walks of life and ideological backgrounds — including this white, straight, 57-year-old, former religious right wing agitator, now progressive writer and (given my background as the son of a famous evangelical leader) this unlikely Obama supporter — are sticking with our President. Why?– because he is succeeding.

“We faithful Obama supporters still trust our initial impression of him as a great, good and uniquely qualified man to lead us. “

Much more here.

  1. Ms. Holland,

    ” are sticking with our President. Why?– because he is succeeding. ”

    You are right. His agenda has succeeded wonderfully. Which is why I am voting for whoever promises to reverse it.


    • Of course you know Alan, that for me, his successes have been luke warm. I want those engines cranked up.

      Of course he’d need a more courageous congress than he has now – and that’s increasingly unlikely.


  2. Ms. Holland,

    President Obama has succeeded in getting nearly everything he wanted except for Crap and Trade. Thank God he did not get that job killer. Since he had super majorities in Congress and got what he wanted the unemployment rate has stayed high. Just what we predicted. Since his programs have been disasters jobwise, all he can do is blame my guys. Unfortunately for your side, nobody believes him.

    Once Republicans get some power back, your hero will have us to blame still but, people will believe him again. If you really want President Obama to be reelected in 2 years, you should ‘pray’ for a Republican sweep in November. Trust me on this. Trust me on this , too. Sell bonds and buy stocks. I don’t even charge for this advice.


  3. Ms. Holland,
    ” Not an investor, but thanks anyway. ”

    A shame. I believe that this is a great time to get into the stock market. But, to get back to Obama. What is your take on Ronald McDonald threatening to drop health coverage to 30,000 employees because of Obama-care? McDonalds has denied it,,,but. I believe this is just one of a host of companies who might drop health care. Didn’t President Obama say that if you liked your health plan, there was no problem keeping it just the way it was?

    I think that’s what he said.
