Saluting with misty eyes
Actually, it is pretty disgusting how BOTH political parties abandon their favorite sons whenever the mood strikes them, and whenever it is expedient to do so.
I point to our current High Lord Pish Posh who was the "savior of the world, the golden child of the left, and the one person in the entire world who could bring the United States back into the good graces of a hating world". When people were going to vote against him, they were called racist and un-enlightened; when he was elected, there was dancing and crying in the streets; when he was given the Nobel Peace Prize for not doing a damned thing, he was praised as the Second Coming... and yet, he is being demonized by the left for Guantanamo not being closed, because the health care plan wasn't liberal enough (which I find... strange), because he hasn't completed the change over to European-style socialism yet, because we still have troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Actually, even though I did not vote for him (big surprise), and would very much enjoy the thought of him being a one term president, I am willing to give him the respect that the left is not because he got into office, realized that he didn't have all the facts, and is now litening to people on the ground in both combat theaters to decide what is right for this nation.
Anyhow. it is not just the Republicans that tend to eat their young... the liberal Democrats are just as evil. And that is not good for the country...regardless of who is in power.
