It is very difficult when you don't believe in your leader.
It is extremely difficult when you have a leader you do not believe in. You want to be loyal but you know that he is mistaken and going down the wrong path. So you speak out in protest. You say"this is not who we are." You plead with him to fight for the causes that you have always believed in. That he speak up forthrightly and clearly and not kowtow to the likes of Obama to garner good notices in the media. You will lose friends who can't believe that you would dare question your leader no matter how far astray he might lead you. You are told that you shouldn't dare speak out. That legitimate criticism is "bashing" and beyond the pale. You protest that we should not abandon the fight for the right to life or other core issues to engage in global warming nonsense. You plead with him to fight the good fight vocally and vehemently. To not surrender and acquiesce by tailoring his message to a more palatable version of namby pamby safe speak.
But don't worry. I have very good news.
John Boehner has retired.
So we don't have to worry about that anymore.
