We want our country back! Yes we do!

Okay.  I heard someone say again today that he had NEVER heard  “Take our country back” until now as if the words were coined by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement, and coined especially as some code words from some “darker side” to heap persecution upon our poor Obama (you know, the same Obama who rode in on a white horse or more like a white unicorn with the complete support and assistance of media, with almost no experience and even less vetting,  with great ease and, yes, the support of the majority of the American people seeing as how he was elected.)

Well, I know I have heard those words before, so in just a few short minutes I came up with numerous times the words were used before Obama even came on the national scene.  There are many, many more, but the links below will provide a little perspective.  So as to quote the famous well-loved phrase, last heard from the mouth of MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell “you are not entitled to your own facts.”

“My name is Maxine Waters.  You are the true patriots and you have come to take your country…..”

So, yes, we want our country back, we sure do.

Some praise for President Bush

The Ft. Hood massacre just keeps unfolding in layers, more facts coming out each day and revealing the hearts of grieving Americans as the reality of it really hits us. Today, I was reading this touching post about the 14th victim, and I had not looked at it like this concerning the unborn child that was also killed by Monster Hasan.

While following some links related to the post, I came across this amazing, amazing article about President Bush and Laura and their private visit to Ft. Hood to offer comfort in the midst of this horrific event. It’s been almost a week now, and I think each day another layer is exposed in me as I move from one emotion to another, because honestly it was so hard to believe it was for real, it is taking a while to sink in. I’ve been shocked, numb, angry, and sad, and most of all outraged.

Some Hillary supporters here have expressed their admiration for what President Bush did for the country and for the devastated soldiers and their families at Ft. Hood. Here’s an excerpt and a link.

“”If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.

[…..]

…..we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention,when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.

[…..]

The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.””

See the entire post here.  Don’t miss the comments and the Halloween 2009 post.It makes me proud to be an American and so happy to see some genuine bipartisanship, because after all, when push comes to shove, we are “One nation, under God,  indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
