United We Stand

Do you remember the solidarity America felt after we were attacked on 9/11? The whole country came together. The sitting president had one of the worst approval ratings and most of America knew we were attacked because of his failings, but we all stood together. UNITED WE STOOD.

Katrina came along and the same sitting president continued to sit while New Orleans drowned. Four days of people dying and Americans were united in our efforts to address the problems. We all knew that the sitting president had been appointed by a coup of the Supreme Court, but we all united to address the problems rather than attacking the utter failure of a president.

Compare that with today. We have one of the best presidents America has seen in decades. Just look at the long long list of wonderful accomplishments, not to mention digging our economy out of the Republican Second Great Depression.

But all the Republicans can do is complain that he isn’t addressing the economy (until they’re proven to be liars) or complaining about how he isn’t enough involved in the oil spill (until they are proven to be wrong yet again) or complaining about how Obama must be unfit to be president because he was born in Kenya (and these lies have been exposed time after time).

Do you see any sort of contrast? A Republican president bringing destruction upon America and we are still all united to solve our difficulties. A Democratic president comes along and the Republican will do anything, even bringing disaster to our country to try to bring him down.

Sick. Just real sick. How about if we all tried a little “United We Stand”?

  1. You gotta face it. The republicans hate what America stands for. They hate the idea of people uniting together to keep the corporations as bay. Hate it and call it names like socialism and hitler and worse. If they only knew, and many of them do know, that our country’s fathers were behind welfare and there were numerous welfare projects in place at the founding of this wonderful country. Too bad the republicans hate what this wonderful country stands for.

  2. How about we make a list of the things America stands for that the Republican party hates?
    1. Separation of church and state
    2. American founded on secular beliefs
    3. The American dream (class not defined by parents’ wealth)
    4. No Aristocracies
    5. Protect our local industries
    6. Now you name some

    They really do hate what America stands for. The Republican party is “America for the rich”.

  3. Even considering all the lies and all the devastation from BP and their Golf Oil Catastrophe, one third of Republicans/Conservatives still view them favorably. Why would Republicans be in favor of a company causing such harm to America?

  4. Just yesterday the Mississippi governor, Barbour, called Obama “The Enemy”. Another Republican calling the American president the enemy. Imagine anyone god-awful stupid enough to vote for this man. Mississippi, you make America sick. Do you really hate your country that much?
