This RCOB Not Going Away Any Time Soon

The more I read that Michelle Obama quote from my previous post, the more infuriated I get, though not at her for saying what she said. What infuriates me, to no end, is that there are so many people in this country who can hear something like this coming from this cult leader's camp...

He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism.

...and think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Can you imagine the magnitude of the shitstorm that would have followed, had Laura Bush declared during the 2004 campaign:

"George Bush is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. Docile complaince with this admistration's ideology will be mandatory. Disagreement with the ruling party will be vigorously discouraged in my husband's second term. George Bush will demand that you refrain from any such contrarian thought."

"Yes, but when Barack says it, it's so change-o-licious."

This is scary shit, kids.

We're talking real "Get on the train!" kind of stuff here.

But, then again, these are the same people who stand up and cheer (or faint and fall down) when their Messiah figure tells them all that he's coming to fix their souls.

The same people who break out into spontaneous applause upon witnessing their Savior blow a load of snot into a tissue. Though, in that case, I can see their point. People have been asking him for some time to offer up some substance.

The same people who can look at Obama's proposal to take nearly a TRILLION dollars from American taxpayers and hand it over to the United Nations, to "fight poverty", and say, "Sounds great! What could possibly go wrong?"

Why won't this empty suit just come out and say, straight up, that he wants to dismantle the Republic, declare the Constitution null and void (well, at least the parts he finds objectionable), and start over again from scratch, with him and his disciples running the show?

Because, if there's a revolution coming, I'd like at least a 48-hour advance notification.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Don't you dare talk about voting against, or you'll be a racist.
