There are also the folks who are aware that "change is coming" and, while they're prepared for it, they're not overly thrilled about it. A few of those folks are seen here:
But those guys are ready for it. They live their fantasy lives based firmly in reality. Others? Not so much. People think they want change. But that's only because people have forgotten that we don't like change. No, we don't. We prefer things to be the same in the vaguest of senses. If our lives are good, we prefer to keep the goodness about them. If our lives suck, we prefer to keep the suckiness about them because we've gotten really good at all of the bitching we do about said suckiness. Here are just a few examples of people who are going to be disappointed with their forthcoming "change".
- The Gays.
- Left-Left-And-Farther-To-The-Left Liberals
- The folks who constantly keep referring to him as our "first black President"
They will be disappointed when, after they have run that phrase and that categorization into the freaking ground (which, by my estimations, based upon current overuse figures, should be right about 10.73 minutes after he is sworn in as our "first black President") and then people start shooting back with, "Um, he's half white!" They will be disappointed to learn that they have to share Messiah Barry with the rest of us. To speed up their disappointment, I'm just going to start referring to him as our "first half-white President" and see how that goes for awhile
- The woman who left this message.
- The woman who made this statement:
Clearly, that woman knows something that I am not aware of. According to her, with Barry being President, she is no longer going to have to worry about putting gasoline in her car! She is also no longer going to have to worry about paying her mortgage! Why? Because she helped Barry (get elected) and now Barry is going to help her! You know, I pay close attention to the news nearly every day, but I must have missed the day when Barry said that when he was elected that he was giving away free gasoline AND free houses! I like houses! I like gasoline! I helped Barry get elected! Where's my free gas and house?! Yep, that woman is going to be disappointed.
- Many, many individuals in this crowd:
The emerging theme that I keep hearing in Barry's proclamations of change to come is individual responsibility and hard work. For everyone. But that's not the emerging theme that I hear from a lot of people. No, a lot of people expect to sit back and have this whole recession nonsense cleared up by the weekend or, at the very latest, Super Bowl Sunday. (Barry wouldn't let us have our Super Bowl all recession-y, would he? No! Of course not!) Then again, I don't know if I blame 'em. When things are going crappy, who doesn't want someone to just step in and save the day? But what if someone 'saving the day' is them telling you what it is that you need to do? That's not the kind of saving a lot of people have in mind. Those people are going to be disappointed.
And finally, I have to imagine, after seeing the photo below, that the Bush daughters are going to be a little disappointed, but not so much in Barry but more for how things are going to go for them. After all, their dad wasn't even officially out of office at the time that the photo was taken during the Pre-Inaugural Bash With Lotsa Singing Celebrity Folks, and look at 'em! Suddenly and without warning: bag ladies! That was quick!Sphere: Related Content
