Michael Bloomberg: You Have the Responsibility as an American to Make Obama Successful

On Al “Resist We Much” Sharpton’s MSNBC show, Mayor Michael “Resist We Salt” Bloomberg said that we must see to President Obama’s success for the sake of the future of our children and grandchildren (apparently in the future the cures for cancer and heart disease will be debt and unemployment checks, respectively).

Transcript from Story Balloon:

“But I think he is our president. And what we have to step back and say is, whether we voted for Barack Obama or not, whether we agree with Barack Obama or not, whether we like Barack Obama or not, he is our elected president. And our success, your children`s success and your grand children`s success depend on he being a good president while he`s in office. You may want to change presidents. You may yourself want to run against him. That`s fine. You can do that in a campaign. But you also have a responsibility as an American to make him be successful because the country is not successful if the president is not successful.”

He went on, but you get the point. If Bloomberg had been interviewed by anybody remotely inquisitive, a good follow-up might have been, “Can you please define ‘successful’?” That and “Do you think there is a difference between respect for the office and blind allegiance?”

If a president’s programs, dealings, morals and ethics — no matter what they are — are automatically in the best interest of America, why bother ever having elections?

Americans having the responsibility to make Obama successful must be why MSNBC has yet to mention Solyndra in any of their prime time programming. You don’t see that level of patriotism much these days:
