Can We All Be One, Now?

I just finished reading an article by a nationally syndicated author (I'm not going to say who) that referenced the Festivities of the Coronation of The One.  In that article the author asked the question "Can we all be one, now?"  It expressed eternal optimism that now, finally, our country can and should come together.  That we can and should unite.  That everyone can finally love this country and be proud of it.  That finally, we can all ... agree ... agree with Obama's agenda ... because .... it's perfect. 

Can't we, finally, all be one?

Uhhmm.... In a word ... No.

What I want to know is why couldn't we all be one eight years ago.  

Why couldn't we get behind George W. Bush in the pre-9/11 days when he wanted to improve our Education System and leave no child behind.  No, standards and testing to improve our schools wasn't what the liberals in the education system wanted.  They just wanted more money thrown at the system to use without accountability.

Why couldn't we all stand behind George W. Bush when he wanted to reduce taxes for everyone in order to stimulate the economy?  No, the liberals were afraid that some people might become wealthy.  We can't have that, now, can we?

Why couldn't we all get behind George W. Bush when the terrorist attacked us?  Why couldn't we stand behind the war on terror?  No.  The liberals wanted to paint our president as a criminal and a war-monger.  They wanted to portray the war on terror as a war for oil.  They wanted to portray Bush and Cheney as cowards.

But NOW .... now, everything is different.  Yes, roses are growing spontaneously throughout America.  Hope is alive.  And everyone should get behind the Obama agenda.  Why?   Well .... uhhm .... just because.  Because we should.  Because that's what the liberals want.  Because Obama is The ONE.  Because he wants special rights for Homosexuals.  Because he wants everyone to have an abortion (and kill their unborn child) any time they want.  Because he wants the government to be more powerful.  Because he wants to take away the voices of those who oppose the left, including Christians.

And you can bet the liberals are going to be shocked when some of us don't jump on the bandwagon.
