FUSION JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2010
I’d like to kick off the first issue of the new year by offering this heartfelt sentiment to President Barack Obama: Thank you.
OK, wait, that didn’t feel big enough. Let me take another shot at it:
President Obama…THANK YOU!!!
Yeah, that was better.
Just in case you’re wondering, no, I haven’t lost what little sanity I had left and Fusion hasn’t been taken over by liberal New York City vegan Greenpeace hemp weavers. I just think it’s important to thank President Obama because I truly believe he’s helped get this country back on track. NOT through his unchecked power grab and socialist agenda, but by inspiring Americans like you to stand up, remember the ideals that your parents and grandparents taught you and steer this country back on course.
Throughout your life, a huge part of figuring out what you do want is first recognizing what you don’t want. Sometimes we get lucky and realize that what we want is exactly what’s in front of us. For example, Ronal Reagan galvanized the country through strong defense, economic growth and a renewed pride in celebrating the freedom and opportunity that is the birthright of every American. Those were a glorious eight years, and we knew a good thing when we saw it. With President Obama, though, not so much.
See, even when times are tough in this country, they’re still way better than anyplace else on Earth. (I’ll take a bad day in America over the best day Afghanistan ever had.) It can be easy to take our blessings for granted, but then a guy like President Obama comes along and tries to change things so drastically and fundamentally, we get shaken out of our complacency and back to reality.
The president can make all the flowery, impassioned speeches he wants, but you’ve shown that when Obama says, "Yes We Can," you understand that what he’s referring to is his administration’s attempt to turn the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave into a European welfare state and YOU said, "NO YOU CAN’T!"
The tea parties are just the beginning. Our eyes have been opened, and there is a grand American restoration taking place. America is returning to Her founding principles, and it’s because you’ve not only taken notice, you’ve taken action. There’s an enormous contingent of citizens just like you who aim to reshape and retake this country, and it’s growing bigger every day. Hell hath no fury like an American scorned, and we’re on the move to right the wrongs that our own leaders have been trying to shove down our throats. The future looks a whole lot brighter with eyes wide open. It’s people like you who are leading the charge toward the next and greatest chapter in the history of our United States.
Thank you President Obama. We could have done it without you, but you sure made it a whole lot easier.
