Your Road to Damascus Moment

Piece of Work in Progress is collecting your Road to Damascus moments. You know, when you knew HopeNChange wasn’t all that.

Commenter gb:

The night James Earl Carter, Jr. stood before God and the American people, dressed in his cardigan, and told us to turn down our thermostats and quit driving. The road to Tarsus became, at that point, a toboggan ride. To actually watch the President of The United States behave in that fashion will, forever, be a shaming moment. It has not been equalled until Mr. Obama came along.

I remember that.

Mine was noted here, explaining why I started the blog over 4 years ago.

    There have been a few over the years for me, but I think the big one, the one that told me I could never vote for even a reasonable Democrat again, was the behavior of the party’s national leaders when they went beyond legitimate opposition to the war effort in Iraq and crossed over into demagoguery, putting their party’s parochial electoral interests ahead of the needs of the nation, in effect giving aid and comfort to the enemy. It reminded me of what the Copperhead Democrats did to Lincoln and the Union war effort in the Civil War, and it was unforgivable. It started in 2003-2004 as Iraq turned rough, but the crystallizing moment was when Harry Reid announced the surge was a failure and the war was lost, before it had even been tried. Can you imagine the opposition leader of the Senate saying something like that on the morning of D-Day?
