Now that my guy is in power, I love America again

Andrew Breitbart wishes Obama well, but has some choice words for his celebrity supporters:

God bless, President Obama. Even though I didn’t vote for him, and disagree with much of his agenda, he has my best wishes and all of my best efforts.
But that doesn’t mean I will forgive and forget an era of narcissism, petty complaining and conspiracy theory peddling from the majority celebrity class that began well before Iraq. [See “Hollywood, Interrupted ” — my book co-written with Mark Ebner — which was written before and during the build-up to the Iraq war and before the WMDs weren’t found. The public behavior from Hollywood even then was almost uniformly deplorable.]
Conspiracy theories of America’s complicity in 9/11 dominated cocktail party discussions for eight tedious years. They couldn’t simply disagree with Bush. They had to ascribe evil to his motivations and make sure the whole world agreed on that flawed premise.
Yet, hating the president doesn’t mean one can’t still help out the country in a great time of need. But many went to foreign countries and demeaned it instead. Called those that disagreed with them rubes and hicks. The elitism of the celebrities against flyover country America could not have been more pronounced. They made a boat-load of movies that affirmed this narrow and patronizing world view.
And now they want us back.
We’re all Americans — NOW.

I endorsed Obama – much to the chagrin of many readers – but that certainly doesn’t mean I like being on the same side of the fence as Cameron Diaz. (Allah writes, “one of the amusements of the Obama years will be watching the counterculture transition from inveighing against The Man to trying to get The Man reelected.”)

  1. Huh?
    I’d love Obama if he hadn’t crawled out of the most corrupt political machine in the nation. I’d love Obama if he was a fiscal libertarian with social conservative leanings. Hell, I’d be satisfied if his grandma hadn’t have pointed to his Kenyan birth.
    Sorry, but this guy is of the same ilk as Bush… coddled from birth, shuffled through Ivy League schools at someone else’s expense, with an insufferable arrogance and birth-right mentality.
    Know why Bush was so damnably mediocre? It’s because he’d never had to succeed at anything on his own all his life. Dad was always there to bail him out. Sometimes literally.
    Barry Obama is of the same set. Never ran a business, never had to overcome failure, never had to work through college, never had to face being stranded or broke or hungry.
    W had proven himself to be almost adequate to the job. I’ll pray for Obama that he knows when to summon the wisdom to do the right thing. Given W’s record, it won’t take much to be an improvement.
    Sorry for the angry tone. Heh. It could have been Kucinich.

  2. Ran, I have to agree with you here. But what I mean is this: Obama has been sold as a black man, the first black president. But look closely at the man, he was raised white, he probably loves matzo balls and all around him is white guys in positions of power. He ain’t what they claim he is: a new hope for old down trodden people.

  3. Must be a lot of moving trucks rolling from Canada back to the US today. Remember all the celebrities that couldn’t live in an America with Bush as president. Oh yeah! They never left.
