I really have very little patience for the “oh, I didn’t realize what I was getting with Obama, he seemed so cool, and I was caught up in the hype, and now I realize that he talked a good game but doesn’t know what he’s doing, and I’m so smart and witty, that when I admit my mistake, I’ll be sure to blame it on Sarah Palin” crowd.
In fact, I have less than a little patience with people like Jill Dorson, who pens this masterpiece for Real Clear Politics, Why I Regret Voting For President Obama:
I am a registered Independent. I voted for Barack Obama. And for that, I am sorry.
I’m not sorry for you. I’m sorry for me. Because I voted for Obama for me, not for you. I voted for hope and change and all the intangibles that Obama was peddling in the wake of the financial crisis, Sarah Palin, Sept. 11 and all the other ills that shook our country in the last decade. I wanted something new. Something different. What I got was, I suppose, exactly what I voted for – a spin doctor. And not a very good one at that.
Before John McCain unwittingly picked a tabloid-magazine cover girl for his running mate, I was leaning toward going Republican this time around. I did the second time Bush was on the ballot and I very nearly did the first time, too. But as soon as Palin climbed out of her igloo and onto the national scene, well, there was no turning back for me.
This is a classy blog, so I’m not going to tell you what I really think you should do with your apology. Let’s just say apology not accepted.
And if you ever again try to blame Sarah Palin for your mistake, I may have to stop the “this is a classy blog” schtick.
We’re cleaning up your ObaMess, so get out of the way. And stop apologizing.
Update: Another Black Conservative is not as reserved as I was, although he did us an asterisk.
