It’s just not clear that it would occur to anybody to vote for him. We’ve got to persuade people he’s substantial. Ask people to describe their impressions of Matt Santos in one word…
I dont just get angry when these GOP yahoos insult the President for hoots and claps from their fan base because I see it as steeped in racism (which it is) but I get pissed off because they’re also insulting the 60 some-odd million people who voted for him (of all races and colors and creeds) as if we’re a bunch of fuckin idiots fooled by a charlatan and people like Sarah Palin can show us the light. You’ve got to be fuckin kidding me.
Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden on the campaign trail, 2008.
Speaker Boehner rejects the White House fiscal cliff plan. He called it “silliness”. Has their plan changed from higher taxes for the people who can actually afford it to something else because I dont see anything silly about that?
First its “lets pray for the President to do a good job”. Then its all “he won because he gave/offered gifts to minorities”. Flip-flopper Mitt strikes again. What a douche.
I think its safe to come back now. Thanks to everyone who voted, my prediction ended up coming true with Obama blowing out Romney in the math and all the hoopla being just that…hoopla. I’m sure they know and dont care what kind of stress that can put people under. I actually did go to bed with a migraine last night. Up early as hell because my sleeping pill only gives me about seven hours and once I opened my eyes I had to turn on my TV. I had to know what kind of country and world I was living in this morning. And now I know. Now its time for all of us to get some more work done. The President cant do this alone. The Republicans are still in the majority in the House so who knows what shenanigans they have planned. But I’ve got one word for you guys, as much as I hate politics…midterms. If people dont want to help this country really get back on its feet, lets get rid of them.
Hopefully this will be my last straight post about politics for a while, particular the politics of fear and meanness. I gotta go back to fandom and kittens and music…I was much happier with that.
