Under the bus!

Among the Wednesday post-mortems in NRO was one post, an email from a reader, who said they should start an "under the bus" contest, to predict which supporter or group will be the first to throw Obama under the bus in disappointment over a welched-on promise. I'm not going to look it up; I've posted too many NRO links recently, and I don't feel like going back again for another dose of squishiness. Anyway, this reader thought that Andrew Sullivan would be among the first.

I thought that the contest was a good idea, but the reader had it totally backward. Judging by past form, all the bus-throwing is going to be on the part of Obama, who has a history of throwing away people once they've served their purpose or grown inconvenient.

And I think I know who the first under the bus will be: the homosexuals! After working their hearts out for Obama, they came up empty-handed on November 4, with marriage amendments passing all over the country. Surprise, surprise, the pro-homosex cause wasn't popular with black voters, and some of the activists aren't taking it too well. Maybe they still think that the King of Kings will come to their rescue, but don't count on it.

Blacks form over 13% of the U.S. population, and went 95% for Obama. Homosexuals are between 1 and 2% - even if they went 100% for Obama, they still are just a feather in the scale in comparison. Do the math, idiots. Why would Obama irritate his biggest voting block for you? He got your votes and your money (and bamboozled you into abandoning Hillary), so now he drops you in the nearest gutter. He's on his way to bigger things.

BHO's largest voting block can't be alienated. They have voted that way for decades, and will continue to do so long after I am in a different, hopefully better place. Nothing will change that, so be prepared for some unpleasant actions. Among those will be the political rehabilitation of the people who were thrown under the Obamabus to provide plausible separation.

Oh. it's started already - I read that Ayres was at his victory party. Maybe Rev. Wright will be the one to administer the oath in January.

Don't count on it - they have a powerful lobby out of all proportion to their numbers. They are also also lawless and militant (look at the reaction to proposition 8). Obama used to associate with Black Panthers, now I don't see why he'd decline doing business with Pink Panthers.
