The other side of the Obama Nation

Yesterday one of the liberal twitterers I follow wrote this:

An inflexible unwillingness to update one's beliefs in the face of logic or evidence is the very definition of fanaticism.

She was referring to some folks who are still trying to see Obama's birth certificate, but I wonder if maybe this sentence could be turned around on so many of the people who voted for Obama in November and are still sticking by him over six months later.

Around the time of the election I was following quite a few bloggers who were supporting Obama's candidacy, mostly for abortion rights although one was following because she was against the war and she thought Obama would be better for the poor. She urged me to "listen to what he says."

So I've been listening. I remember hearing that we had to pass the Stimulus bill immediately because the economy would falter without it. I remember hearing that this president was going to have transparency. I remember hearing that the stimulus package was going to save jobs and create jobs! I also remember hearing that these big bills were going to be on the internet so that everyone could read them.

The reality is that the Stimulus Bill was so big that NOT A SINGLE PERSON IN CONGRESS had the chance to read it before voting on it. And the regular people never had a chance to read it on the internet before the vote. And six months later the unemployment has continued to climb. Where are these saved jobs? Where are the new jobs? What exactly happened to all of that money?

And for my friend who felt Obama would end the war - we're still fighting it. And the poor are not only getting poorer, but others are joining them as their jobs are lost and savings dwindle.

So in the face of logic and evidence shouldn't these Obama supporters be looking at their decision to support this man and be adjusting their views accordingly?

As a side note, I have a theory on why Obama is so set in passing this universal health code before August, which is like next week. he wants it passed quickly like the stimulus bill. He's making it sound like a dire emergency and he wants to scare everyone into passing it before there is a chance to read it and understand the consequences. I don't think he's going to make it this time.

Greta Vansustern had Rush Limbaugh on her show last night and he talked about Obama's health care plan and the problems with it. Part 1 is here.
