I understand that the media is mostly comprised of liberals, and as such, they support the liberal President. I understand that President Obama is “their guy” and they aren’t going to volunteer negative information about him. If you look back over the past year, I think you will discover that this bears out. The Los Angeles Times refused to release a video showing that Obama spoke at a dinner for a terrorist that was leaving US soil. The media consistently downplayed Obama’s connection to Ayers (who was recently denied entry into Canada, we can only assume it had something to do with his status as a known terrorist). When Obama stopped in PA to talk to people in a neighborhood, and he stopped at “Joe the Plumber’s” house, the media attacked Joe for his question, and ignored Obama’s answer, which by the way, revealed his belief in socialism.

The whole time this was all taking place, the media were digging through garbage bins to find dirt on Sarah Palin, John McCain, and any other Republican they could get their hands on. What I’m saying is that I understand why the liberal media was doing this: they wanted Obama to win, and they were going to help him do it. What has concerned me is the multitude of people who think that Obama is the messiah, that he can do no wrong. These people actually worship the man, and there is no debating them. They vociferously attack anyone who dares question anything he does. One example would be Peggy Joseph, a woman caught on film stating, “It was a touching moment because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he’s gonna help me.” This concerns me because he’s not perfect. He’s not God. He is going to make mistakes, and these sheeple that think he is perfect are going to be severely disappointed. Or they are going to continue to follow blindly and ignore anything he does that doesn’t match their preconceived notion of him.

Now Obama is President. As I said, I support my President. I pray for him and his family. I pray they will be safe. I pray that he will make wise decisions that are the right decisions for this country. But when I disagree with him, or when he makes mistakes, I will call him on it.

The problem is that I know some of these people, and they take offense if you mention anything even remotely non-positive about President Obama. They get upset if you say anything positive about someone who opposes President Obama. These people are not reasonable. Our country has operated for over 200 years with the idea that honest people can have honest disagreements and still get along. But some people are unreasonable and say things like, “You don’t support my political candidate, so I won’t have anything to do with you.” This is not unity. This is not “being one.” This is One Nation, Divisible. That is not what our country was founded for.

I am just waiting to see what these extremists will do next.

    >Great post! It’s true…anything negative about Obama is downplayed or not reported at all by mainstream media! If Palin had said that she had been to all 57 states (as Obama said) the media wouldn’t have been able to let it go. But since Obama says it, it’s not even reported! There are so many examples like that. Is there even still a free press anymore?
