Batter Up!

I was trying to decide how I wanted to blog today. As my regular(s) reader(s) know I supported Obama from the start. But, how should I respond? I know some who visit here do not share my current enthusiasm. The fact is, regardless, we will have a new President in January. We all have to do what's needed to do to get our country out of the mud pit we've been stuck in for eight years.

They way I look at it is between now and the inauguration it's like Spring training in baseball. Obama is putting his team together to get ready for a four years long season. We are the fans. And like good White Sox fans we will demand performance. We love our team, but if you don't perform you will hear our wrath.

Obama is a White Sox fan (awesome) and he knows exactly what I'm talking about. Of course, I doubt the President-elect reads my blog. My wife thinks Nancy Faust should play "Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey Goodbye" at the inauguration. (That would be so cool.)

Obama has to put together an All-Star team to win. Our opponents are tough. We play the Economy Nightmares on Opening day followed by the Iraq War Albatrosses, the Terrorism Red Devils, the Taxes Titans, the Social Security Hippos, the Abortion Rights Angels, the Middle East Madness, the Environment Eagles, the Health Care Red Tapes, and the Gay Marriage Belles.
That's just part of the schedule.

Obama is a rookie. But, like the rabid fans we are, we don't care. We want to win now. The goal is to make the playoffs in 2012.

Play ball America!

Playing Na Na Na is not the proper or cool thing to do.
That is a sign of arrogance and Obama is not about that. It's that type of character that divides this country.
He will thank Mr. Bush for serving us the last eight years and now start the hard work of change.
Many agree it has been lousy in this country the last few years but to be arrogant and bodacious that the new way will be the end all is not good sportsmanship. Take victory and prove why you were chosen and deliver the promises you made to America.
Mr. Bush to you I say, Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

You democrats are too sensitive.

It would have been fine until you interjected, That would be so cool. Your symbolism was good. Is it REALLY a metaphor? WHAT IS a metaphor anyway? asks Andy Rooney.

scott, "na na na na, hey hey, goodbye" is just a little shove on the door as it hits him on the ass on the way out.

If the country wasn't so screwed up I would be happy to shake Bush's hand. But, he and Chaney have used this country for their own personal gains.

While I normally respect the office of president, I can't this one.

History will show we have lived under the foulest stench these past eight years.

One question. If the Rookie and his minions in Congress screw up will you guys are whine about them?

Mark Ploch said...

I will voice my opinion whenever one MY employees does wrong.

We employ all politicians and we need to remind them of that.

So, yes, to your question.
