1. Harry Reid and the Democratic Senate
Harry Reid is a disagreeable fellow, which is fine, but he is also a very liberal disagreeable fellow, and thought of a filibuster proof Democratic Senate sends shivers down my spine. I am bracing myself for country wide speech codes like in most universities, reversal of the ban on partial birth abortion, and other such stuff.
2. Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House
I think Nancy Pelosi is a despot, and a very liberal one at that, and the thought of a Democratic House sending legislation to a filibuster proof Senate seriously wigs me out. If we ever needed divided government it would be now.
3. Partial Birth (and Live Birth) Abortion
When a country supports infanticide, well, God help us all. We deserve whatever comes our way. Obama has shown his cards on this issue. Despite his soaring rhetoric his record shows that he won’t lift a finger to maintain the ban.
4. William Ayers (et al)
Either Obama was simply using these connections in his rise to power and influence, or he agrees with these folks at some visceral level, or he is just clueless. None of the options thrills me.
5. Joe the Plumber
I don’t care what Joe the Plumbers actual tax status is, his question was legitimate, and Obama’s answer regarding "spreading the wealth around" sent a chill down my spine. Is this Cuba?
6. Tax Policy
The vast majority of Americans are employed by small to medium size businesses. If their taxes are increased they will either pass along the costs by increasing prices on their products, or they will decrease their work force, or just stop hiring people. Or all of the above. Oh, and then there is that capital gains increase…
7. The Fairness Doctrine
I cannot think of any single law that so violates the first amendment as this sham of a doctrine. And the hypocrisy is that “conservative” talk radio” will be labeled “conservative” which it certainly is, but MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, will not be labeled as “liberal” which they all certainly are. The fairness doctrine is not only reprehensible from a fee speech stand point, it is also unfair to the core.
8. The Messiah
That Obama does not do all he can to squash all this Messiah-like stuff going around tells me that he either believes it or is willing cynically to use it to his advantage. Hubris…
9. Wrong Change
I have seen no evidence whatsoever that Obama intends to bring change to the way Washington works. When most Americans think of the idea of “change in how Washington works” they have in mind its partisanship, the bickering, the inability to compromise. As far as I can tell the only change Obama will bring is a tidal wave of liberalism.
10. Foreign Policy
Yes, the world loves him. In fact, Hezbollah supports him. That’s all I need to know.
