Post Hoc Evidence That Sitting Out the Last Election was Morally Justifiable

I didn't sit the last one out, but if you did-- God bless you. From Yahoo.com comes this gem of a story:

McCain: Obama has 'done well' as president so far

Well, during the campaign he assured us Obama would make a fine president. I have never been one for conspiracy theories, but you do have to wonder how this guy got the nomination. Maybe we are better off this way. Jimmy Carter gave us Ronald Reagan.

Well I always say if you vote in these kind of elections you can't complain about the results. By voting you validate the process and therefore you are bound to accept the outcome, whatever it may be, not that it mattered either way.

I'm confused - isn't this supposed to be a Catholic blog site? Instead, this kind of stuff gives it the total appearance that it is a Republican neo-con blog site.

I get the logic:
Obama = evil.
Democrats = evil.
Anything not Republican - evil.
McCain not bashing Obama, therefore McCain evil too.

Wow, I'm learning so much here - thanks ...

Anon,

I'll help you out. You forgot a line in your equation:

"Perpetuating or giving approval to one perpetuating murder of small children = evil."

Hope that clears things up for you.

Quick question for Anon posting at #5 above: So does this mean that everything Obama does is evil?

To last Anon:

No. I was just trying to be pithy.

To be more exact, I would just say that the issue is so important that President Obama cannot be said to have "done well" so far based on that issue alone.

I'll bite. There is a Catholic thought to economics and governance. That Catholic thought does not favor American Dem or GOP politics and positions. Yet, the Church does provide moral guidance. If we believe America mag, Doug Kmiec, etc., the economic policies of Obama (which are what we ought to be freaking out about daily) are THE CORRECT ideas in Catholic morality, that we can and must overlook Obie's rabid approval of abortion and infanticide. That is just rubbish and morally insane: approve infanticide in order to have a more "correct" social and economic order.

Gotta go....

The sad thing is that McCain still doesn't "get" what he should have been campaigning against/for. LIBERTY first and foremost!

Please, I mean no disrespect but you are an idiot, Anon. Please, McCain's no Republican, Anon. Please, if you're that confused by the Timman stop reading his blog, Anon. (And, since this is online you can't hear the charitable tone of my voice. Mea culpa for that).

McCain is just a liberal who happens to be Republican. He is showing his true colors by offering support for a president who has done nothing but spend us into unprecedented debt and make sure oversees abortions are paid for by our taxes.

I wonder how he sleeps at night? After these last comments, maybe the "state run media" put him to sleep by serenading him outside his bedroom window.

LMG last year before the elections I posted the same thing about McCain as you just said and you berated me as some kind of stealth Obama supporter, which I was not, and stressed how his "bad/liberal/criminal/morally vacuous/hypocritical" behavior was a thing of the past. How is it that now you've seen the light? I admire your zealous Catholicism but politically you're bi-polar.

cp said...

OK, I'm friends w/ LMG, but I have to laugh at X's posting. Is that bad?
