Obama Followers Were Shell Shocked

Well, as much as anti war peaceniks can be.

Today Barack Obama shocked his loyal followers with his words. They had never heard of such a thing and the stunned silence and short applause was their reaction to what he told them, his act of betrayal. Barack Obama told them they would have to work. That dirty four letter word that would take them off the rolls of tax recipient and put them on the rolls of taxpayer.

After Obama won the Democratic nomination a woman named Peggy was on TV. She stated (as she was crying) that she thought he was wonderful and that she would not have to pay for her gas or her house because Obama was going to pay it for her. She was named Peggy the Moocher by Michelle Malkin.

A few days ago I was listening to a local radio show and the story of a local business owner was told. His business was way off and he had little to no work but he kept an employee on. It was a black guy who knew the business and the owner kept him on so that he would have an employee ready to go when (and if) business picked up. One day the guy shows up and quits his job. The owner asked him why and the response was that Obama was going to be the president and he would be giving out checks so “I don’t have to work.”

These two people reflect the attitudes of way too many out there who supported this guy. They think he is going to give them money and pay their bills. Unfortunately, that might not be a totally inaccurate assessment if they were stock brokers. But, many believe that they have to do nothing now because they will be taken care of. It is a shame that this country has devolved into a society where people not only think it is appropriate for the government to give them money but they expect it. What is even sadder is they have no concept that the money has to come from others. Either that or they don’t really care.

In any event, Obama must have really rung their bells today. Peggy the Moocher is probably crying but not because she is happy. The sainted one said that everyone was going to have to work. That is a four letter word that makes liberals cringe and has the effect of water on the Wicked Witch. Yes, Obama told them he needed them to work and I know that must have been like a saber through the heart.

After his speech where he dropped that bombshell on the part of the population that pays 3% or the taxes, he received very little applause. For all the hype leading up to what Rush Limbaugh calls the Immaculation, the applause was weak.

I imagine it was because most people were looking at each other asking if they had heard correctly.

I almost heard their collective hearts breaking and their skin crawling when he mentioned hard work.

Not to worry too much. A lot of us were at work today because not everyone can be on welfare.

Maybe they were doubly disappointed because the clouds did not open and a voice did not say “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” They were no Angels suddenly appearing and showering him with glory. No, he was quite ordinary and he sinned against the crowd by mentioning hard work.

They were all traumatized by this event. Great, now we will have 2 million disability claims.
