Obama Mania Will Pass

I think these people just sit around and lie to themselves. This story from Yahoo News about the Obama Mania press conference is a great example of the nonsense coming from the Drive-bys. One article states,
The buzziest moment came about 35 minutes into the press conference when Ed Henry of CNN asked the President why he didn't spew outrage as soon as he learned about the AIG bonuses. Why, Mr. Henry asked, did the president wait several days before speaking out? The president, with an icy stare, responded that he "likes to know what he's talking about" before he speaks. It was a pretty testy exchange that brought about nervous laughter from the other reporters and snarky responses from Twitterers. Boom! Next question.
Snarky responses? Nervous laughter? This is news? Is the media trying to show how tough they are? Is the media trying to show we have a tough President? I have no idea what this story is trying to say. Why should the Media be nervous? Is the messiah going to strike them down to purgatory?

The Reporter's question of why did the President wait before he targeted AiG is silly. Never mind the fact that President and congress had written the bonuses into the law. The questions really ought to be, "Why is Obama overthrowing the Constitution?" and "Why is the government targeting private citizens?" and "Why is the government creating mob rule?"

Perhaps the bigger question is "Where are the Republicans?" Why are they sitting idly by or aiding and abetting the Left while Democrats destroy liberty and freedom? Notice this statement,
The president responded that he expects Americans to do what they've always done "which is working hard, looking after their families, making sure that, despite the economic hard times, that they're still contributing to their community..."
Why do we allow these Drive-bys and the Left to determine false premises? Why should the President expect anything from us? Why should the question even be asked? Who is the President to tell the American people that HE expects us to do anything? We don't work for the government. This is just sick. I used to live in the United States. I am not certain where I am at the moment. Perhaps I am on my way to the gulag?

Obama Mania will end, though. I was reminded by my 13 year-old son about American history from his history class yesterday. Not only did this country survive the Civil War, but Roosevelt did very similar things during the Great Depression to prolong the Depression and institute permanent Democrat power. We eventually not only survived those times, but managed to even prosper after them. Even if we do not, as a Christian I am reminded the tastes of freedom in this age may be fleeting. Those shadows of freedom will only be fully realized in the age to come, when the true Messiah comes and destroys the wicked and the "meek shall inherit the earth".
