Are you an Obamacon?

You know who you are - those who have willfully forgotten what it is like to be ruled by Democrats in charge of the Executive and Legislative branches.

Diana West points out some of the Top Shelf Obamacons who define hope over experience.

Here, taken from a couple of such endorsements, is what I mean:

President Obama will (I pray, secularly) surely understand that traditional left-politics aren’t going to get us out of this pit we’ve dug for ourselves.

—Christopher Buckley

I sure hope Obama is more open, centrist, sensible—dare I say, Clintonesque—than his liberal record indicates, than his cooperation with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid portends.

—Ken Adelman

In other words, they hope Obama will not revert to Leftist type.

If you are still willing to have an open mind - you also may want to review the Comprehensive Case Against an Obama Presidency. A lot of people have invested a lot of time, money and reputation to get Obama where he is today - and almost all of them are at the far-left of the Democrat Party. If you don't think they are going to come and collect the bill through appointments and policy - then to be blunt you are a fool who understands little about politics and human nature. Sure, worst 10% might be thrown under the bus and ignored - but it is the 90% that will get the power and influence they want that will create the long-term damage. Remember how "Centrist" Carter was? Obama isn't even trying to be Centrist. Remember Clinton's retroactive tax increase? Remember when all started to complain about it and the response was, literally "You shouldn't complain - you knew we were going to do this." That is what you will seen in spades if Obama is elected.

One last note - I have received a couple of very strange emails as of late. How many times have a said that Sen. Obama is a fine guy - it is his ideas that are a nightmare? Since when did opposing ideas and policy become racist? When I warned that we had reached the point a few months ago where it looked like everything that isn't pro-Obama is racist - I didn't expect if would find its way into my mailbox.

To the Obama fans out there remember, when everything is racist - then nothing is racist --- and as a result it will be harder and harder to get action on real racism out there as it will be lost in the background noise.

Hat tip TheCorner.
