Obama Will Triumph — So Will America

By Frank Schaeffer (December, 2009)

Before he’d served even one year President Obama lost the support of the easily distracted left and engendered the white hot rage of the hate-filled right. But some of us, from all walks of life and ideological backgrounds — including this white, straight, 57-year-old, former religious right wing agitator, now progressive writer and (given my background as the son of a famous evangelical leader) this unlikely Obama supporter — are sticking with our President. Why?– because he is succeeding.

We faithful Obama supporters still trust our initial impression of him as a great, good and uniquely qualified man to lead us.

Obama’s steady supporters will be proved right. Obama’s critics will be remembered as easily panicked and prematurely discouraged at best and shriveled hate mongers at worst.

    I agree 100% with the other two. This was my first time reading the article. I’m so disappointed in the people who claim to have supported him in the beginning, but now they are no longer supporting him. Those who claim this man haven’t done anything, or haven’t done all they wanted him to do, in the time frame they’ve wanted it done, is so wrong. Our country were in a hole, and things is not going to turn around overnight, but they act like this man is some miracle worker. He still has my support.
