So the 2008 presidential election is in the books, and while it’s a night of celebration for liberals,the same can’t be said for conservatives. Now some conservatives have been downright gracious in wishing President-elect Obama well in his new role, but unfortunately some conservatives, like Peter over at the Texas Hold ‘Em Blog, haven’t been quite as gracious. Not only is Peter embarassed to be an American, but he’s also stated, “Not my president, not my country” in reference to President-elect Obama.
Now if Barack Obama had lost the election, I can guarantee you I would have been sorely disappointed, but I don’t think I could ever say I was ashamed to be an American. It’s just unfortunate some folks put party above country.
Oh, and I’m just wondering…if Peter’s so ashamed to be an American, does anyone want to take bets on which country he’s going to move to?
