Why Do Conservatives Hate America?

Oh yeah.  Because they lost and they can’t get over the fact that America turned their back on their morally, ethically and intellectually bankrupt party.

I have mixed feelings about President Obama winning the Nobel Prize for Peace.  I think his willingness to continue the rhetoric about how the war in Afghanistan is crucial to the War on Terror is absolutely wrong as is his failure to withdraw us rapidly from there.  However, his efforts to deal with nuclear proliferation, his efforts to get the global community to quit seeing America as a rogue nation bent on militaristic enforcement of whatever they want, and his elevation of the dialogue between nations is huge.  I understand that he got more concessions from Iran in a day than GW Bush did in eight years of jingoistic threats and accusations.  Obama’s efforts to ease the international Muslim’s community’s concerns that the United States is on a religious crusade must also be taken into consideration.  The head of the Nobel Committee explained, in part, their decision thusly:

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee wrote. “His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.”

One would think that Americans would be proud to have their elected leader in such a positive spotlight and be happy that even if they disagreed with the choice America would be getting good PR and our esteem raised in the eyes of the world.  But the conservatives lost and they are in a snit again.  They rejoiced when we lost our bid to host the 2016 Olympics in a U.S. city and they are angry now that an American president has won the Nobel Peace Prize.  They just want Obama and the United States to fail simply  because they lost in 2008.  They have nothing, no game, no plans, no inspiration to elevate the hope and dreams of our country much less the world’s.  They have only hate, racism, anger and hubris.

This is a very relevant, though unfortunately too often used comparison, but imagine if the Democrats and their pundits acted this way under a Republican administration.  Cheer that the United States lost in an Olympic bid?  Sneer at the President of the United States winning one of the most prestigious awards in the world?  Pray that he and his policies fail in a time of unprecedented financial crises ?  There would be calls for purges, loyalty oaths and crucifixions. 

This is what we are up against and may the deities large, small and nonexistent protect us all if the conservatives regain power anytime in the near future.  Their petulant and infantile retributions would be devastating to thic sountry.  But if the majority of America is as disgusted with them as I am then I have a feeling they will just be braying their bovine feces to the moon and their ever shrinking circle of Dittotards’s for a long time and outside the halls of power.

Meanwhile, congratulations President Obama.  I guess this means that the world did not reject you personally when Brazil was awarded their much deserved opportunity to host the 2016 Olympics.  Or, as Secretary of State Clinton commented:

“Certainly from our standpoint, this gives us a sense of momentum — when the United States has accolades tossed its way, rather than shoes.”
