You know how it is. When things are going great, everyone expects them to keep going great.
When skies are blue for you, you think they’ll be blue forever. It’s just the way it is.
So, we suppose our Liberal-Democrat friends just thought the Obamamobile would keep chugging along heading toward some kind of dreamland filled with unicorns and rainbows. To them [incredibly] there seemed to be no obstacles on the horizon.
And then Tuesday, November 4 came along.
Now, we can understand that it must have been an awful letdown.
After all, Obama was supposed to bring us more jobs, better jobs, free income for those who didn’t have jobs, universal free health care, world peace, cleaner air, cleaner water and, goodness knows he was even supposed to lower the oceans and solve whatever climate problems liberals had dreamed up. And in the minds of some of our Dem/Lib friends he was actually accomplishing these things.
And then it all came crashing down in one nightmarish night — well, nightmarish for them, anyway.
But still, life goes on. At least that’s what we conservatives were always taught. After all, we survived Carter and life went on. In fact, in reasonably short order the country recovered under the leadership of President Obama.
And when we lost elections in 1980 and 1992 and 1996 and 2008 and 2012 we did not despair — not by a longshot. Like the song says, we dusted ourselves off, picked ourselves off and started all over again – and again, and again, and again. And, we did this, too: We congratulated those who had defeated us and wished them the best. We said: “Enjoy your victory. The campaign’s over and you won. You earned it. Good luck going forward.”
That’s the way we were taught. That’s the way it should always be.
But, guess what?
We’ve heard damned little of that from our Dem/Lib friends.
Instead, they’ve been eerily quiet. Crickets.
It’s strange, because they’ve always had sooo much to say.
But now it’s oh so quiet. It’s the sound of silence.
And when our Dem/Lib friends do say something it has absolutely nothing to do with politics or national affairs. They simply don’t want to speak of such things just now.
Understand – we allowed them a few days to mourn or cry or whimper or sigh or whatever it is they do. But now, it’ll soon be a whole week since the election and this is getting to be a bit tedious, to say the least. Of course, our Dem/Lib friends haven’t been provided with a very good post-election example by their dubious leader. In his news conference this week he turned about to be downright pissy about the election results.
But, we ask our Dem/Lib friends: Why follow him? He led you to defeat. Rise above it — and him. Be a good sport. Surely you can muster a “Hey, nice job.” or at least a “Well done!” or even an “OK, You won, we lost” if not an outright “Congratulations!” Try it. You might like it. In fact you might feel better and find it even a bit easier to move on.
For our part, we continue to wish you the best.
BTW: If a liberal concedes in the middle of the forest, does anyone hear it?
