Political Rant

I have held it in long enough.  I am so tired of this "historical" week in politics.  You can't tell me he would have won if he wasn't black, especially after how he has been promoted to "messiah" since he has won.  The first time he uses the toilet in the oval office the press is going to take a picture of it and call the it the "historical first crap" (pardon my french).  I have no respect for "that one" , for his policies, his associations and his disdain for our military and the constitution which he called "a charter of negative liberties."  I can never support a man who voted against a bill which would save aborted babies who were still alive, a man who said he would not want his own daughters to ever have to live with the mistake of an unwanted pregnancy.  I can never support a man whom our enemies are thrilled to have in office.  His supporters are worse.  I'm sure most of them don't even know what socialism is and why it is a negative term.  As one supporter said, with him in office "I won't have to worry about putting gas in my tank or paying my mortgage."  Yes, he will take care of you all right.  Just ask the Cubans how well they are taken care of.  

Now I was not in love with the idea of John McCain, he is not conservative enough for me.  So he brought Sarah in, whom people either loved or hated.  I love her conservatives values and what she has been able to accomplish in Alaska, but I also think a mom with 5 kids and all their diverse needs should spend a little more time  at home.  I would have been much more happy with Mitt Romney and he probably could have beat "that one."  The Republicans blew it because they could not find their audience.  Still half the country went with them, but they could have had more.  If there had been any real journalism done and reported on the new president he never would have made it.  The mass media elected him a long time ago.  It was much more important worrying about Sarah Palin's wardrobe and Joe the plumber's tax return than to ask to see  B.O.'s proof of US citizenship or what he actually means by "citizen militia."

He won for all the wrong reasons.  He won because he is black, because he was not a republican, because it was cool to vote for him, because his supporters don't really know his policies.  I think they are all going to be in for a surprise.  And if Oprah doesn't shut up I am taking her off my TIVO.
