Opinion: Why Do The Liberals Keep Complaining?

The Right Politics

Liberals and their ilk obviously won the executive branch of the United States government for another four years with the reelection of President Barack Obama, but they still pick fights as much as they did before the election – if not more. The “leftist” conduct and demeanor since the election hasn’t changed much at all. Quite incredibly confusing, the constant griping by liberals about Republicans and their supporters is still on high which leads to the obvious conclusion that nothing – absolutely nothing – makes them content.

What’s the problem? Do they think they won in name only? Do they think didn’t win by enough? Do they feel guilty about the win? In spite of the win, do they still feel somehow feel threatened by obtaining “their kind” of government in the USA? Or – most likely – are they trying to deflect continued questions and the demand for answers regarding the Benghazi, Libya deadly terrorist attack involving the Obama administration?

If they are trying to deflect attention on the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack that killed four Americans, they can quit wasting their time. The demand for truth regarding the failed foreign policy-related story is remaining.

If they want the Republican Party and the Republicans who still have a voice in Washington, D.C. to go away, it’s not going to happen. They’ve got the executive branch with Obama in office and the Senate led by their primary embarrassment-of-a-politician Sen. Harry Reid. If they’d just listen to and believe Meat Loaf – who, incidentally, endorsed Mitt Romney last month – they’d know that “Two Outta Three Ain’t Bad”. It’s better than the Republicans – which the liberals continue to gripe about – have with no more than the House of Representatives.

Some of the progressive talk show hosts on television and radio, in particular, are near-laughable with their overreaching to get a topic to heat up that is anti-Republican. One talk show host heard at the end of last week actually rekindled the story from three years ago about some congressmen getting spit on in the nation’s capital. This talk show host spent the better part of an hour on the topic as though it happened yesterday. It’s incredible to see just how far these liberal and progressive talkers and diehard believers will go just to bash the Party that already got bashed in the election two weeks ago.

They probably realize that the only way they won the election was to continually bash the opposition, so they’re thinking it’s a good idea to do it for four more years. Or, more likely, maybe they feel that if they continue talking about what ticked them off previously – as much as three years ago – it will keep everyone’s mind off of what’s going on in the Oval Office via the obviously-intended distractions.

Be forewarned. No amount of continued senseless bashing will take the nation’s discerning eyes off the Oval Office and what’s going on in this country. The election did not change the economy, the job market for unemployed Americans, or the extreme concerns in the Middle East – primarily concerning Benghazi. Absolutely nothing has changed. Therefore, watching President Obama is what we must do – all Americans – to make this president the best he can be.

Yet, that’s all they want to talk – and write – about.
