Psalm 2010 - The Reasonable American's Response

This was sent to me in a mass forward, and the problem with it is that it perpetuates the blind dogma that both parties are guilty of and damages our country while stagnating our democracy.  Inability to compromise on issues one is passionate about is an admirable thing when it is based upon true examination of the facts...and that examination has got to go beyond the Republican dogma of "If Obama said it, it must be wrong."   The following email forward needs to be debated beyond that dogma.  PLEASE combat the ignorance of those who wholeheartedly believe in this kind of crap by forwarding THIS to every reasonable American you know.

PSALM 2010
The Reasonable Americans Response

Obama is the shepherd I did not want.
But you say you love America, and one of the things about america you love is that it is a democracy ..and those who DID want him outnumbered you.  Thats America and you get a chance to speak at the ballot box in 2012.
He leadeth me beside the still factories.
The factories still because of 8 years of the ruin of our economy by Bush policies ...but it clearly makes you feel better if you can blame him for our countries problems.  I am reminded of the tea party signees that portrayed Obama as Hitler ...Hitlers most powerful weapon was his propaganda of blatant lies.  Blaming the economic woes on Obama is REPUBLICAN PROPAGANDA OF BLATANT LIES...SO, upon whose Republican face should a truth loving, nazi tactics hating american  draw the Hitler mustache ?
He restoreth my faith in the Republican party.
I haven't heard of a Republican (save the first George Bush who was thrown out of office because of it)  who ever lost faith that his or her way was the only way and that compromise was out of the question.
He guideth me in the path of unemployment for his party's sake.
The implication that a president or a party would gain politically from conitnued unemployment is proof of just how ignorant one who forwards this is. Absolutely ABSURD!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the bread line, 
I shall fear no hunger, for his bailouts are with me.

The first bailouts of this crisis were imnitiated under the administration George W Bush
He has anointed my income with taxes,

Got nothing for you on that one ...all Americans pay taxes, and even democrats bitch about them, but those who bitch the most are the ones who get the most breaks. 
My expenses runneth over. 
Surely, poverty and hard living will follow me all the days of my life, 
And I will live in a mortgaged home forever.

And this is Obama's fault ?  The Economy has everyones expenses strained, and this began with the Bush administration.  And your mortgage...Are you seriously saying that the President is responsible for the contract YOU signed with a bank ?

I am glad I am American,
I am glad that I am free.
But I wish I was a dog .....
And Obama was a tree.

Very funny ..and my there be a strong wind that day blowing in your direction.

George Welsh, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded UVA flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity, George," said God. "This is very special - not everyone gets a house up here." George felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with a Burgundy and Orange sidewalk, 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous Virginia Tech logo flag, and in every window, VT curtains.
George looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was a darn good coach, I won several bowl games, and I even went to the College Football Hall of Fame."
God said, "So what do you want to know, George?"
"Well, why does Frank Beamer get a better house than me?"
God chuckled and said, "George, that's not Frank Beamer's house......
It's mine."
