Dear Miss Coulter,

I understand that you feel strongly about politics. I too feel strongly about politics. You have made writing about politics your career. I too hope to do so. You fall heavily on the conservative side of the spectrum. I also am strongly conservative, and I agree with many things you say.

However, Miss Coulter, you are extremely abrasive! I understand that honesty is the best policy, but it seems to me that you don’t understand the concept of tact. This is a problem!

It is easier to catch flies if you use honey rather than vinegar. Ann, could you tone it down, just a bit? You make the rest of us look like racist bigots!

Miss Abigail
This post was prompted by watching random unedited clips of Ann Coulter interviews on YouTube. Goodness. Way to make us look bad!

Obama, Oprah, and The Olympics

(Like my alliteration? Yeah, thought not.)

When I heard that the Three O’s were jetting off to Copenhagen to campaign for the 2016 Olympics, I thought it was incredibly arrogant of President Obama. I also thought that it was a waste of his time.

Turns out I wasn’t the only person to think that. But I wonder. Are we rejoicing in the downfall of the united States of America when we rejoice in the failure of BHO’s campaign to bring the Olympics to Chicago?

See, when President Bush was still in office, we conservatives criticized the liberals for criticising the President. We perceived their rejection of the sitting president as evidence that they hated America.

Do they now see the same thing? Is our rejection of BHO’s policies seen as hatred of America? It is certainly, unreasonably but certainly, seen as racism. (Excuse me. There are, of course, 5 A’s in Raaaaacism.)

When we laugh over the failure of the Three O’skeetiers to bring the Olympics to the incomparable uS of A, are we inadvertently proclaiming to the world at large that we Americans have lost faith in our country? That America is no longer relevant, or important, or worthy of recognition? Let’s face it, we may not be intending to send that message, but we very well may be.

I think we need to take a hard look at how we express ourselves, and possibly start encouraging the President towards good policies, instead of focusing all our energies on criticizing his bad ones.

And let’s remember one thing:

“There is nothing wrong with America that Americans can’t fix.” ~ Ronald Reagan
