We were never under the delusion that Obama was going to be the perfect candidate. There have always been way too many Obamamaniacs who swear his poop smells like peach cobbler. Still, we had guarded optimism that the tremendous amount of faith people have instilled in him would cause him to rise to the occasion. Then this happened. Then this. Then, he voiced support for the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn DC’s ban on handguns.
Now, he’s expressing the desire to expand Bush’s faith based programs. Faith-based, of course being a euphemism for Christian. We’re still glad that Hillary isn’t the nominee. As Rumproast pointed out, she was beginning to look as conservative Joe Leiberman before the general election was even underway. Still, we were hoping to proudly support Obama in November. Sadly, we’ll be holding our noses.
