You Can't Say That!

Since last night's election of Barack Obama as the next president of the United States, there has been a lot of criticism coming from both sides. Conservatives are complaining, and fearing the worst. Liberals are upset that anyone would speak out against Obama. It's an interesting turning of the tables.

For the last 8 years, Liberals have had a hay-day bashing George W. Bush. There have been smears, exaggerations, bold faced lies, and lots of rumors. Now it's the Conservatives' turn. They're voicing their disdain for the new President-elect and the Liberals can't take it.

But it gets better. Most of the criticisms I've heard, or read, on Obama are all based on fact and truth. Many are based on the things Obama said with his own mouth while campaigning. Conservatives don't like his socialistic tax policy, his foreign affairs policy, his statements in his autobiographical books, his stance on abortion, and his flip-flopping on his numerous stances. All these concerns, they're voicing. Not made-up lies or fabricated stories, just the truth as it has been presented by our President-elect.

So why are the Liberals mad? If it's the truth, why should it matter? It seems that Liberals have become so accustomed to dealing out lies, they can't handle the truth. So, you Conservatives, don't you dare give them the truth about Obama; they can't stand it.

It's an interesting double-standard, and with the media heavily run by Democrats, it will be interesting to see how all this plays out. I very much doubt that there will be much public Obama-bashing for perhaps a very long time. But don't worry, the Republicans will be there to do that.
