It Was Just A Freakin' Election!

Okay, I know this a rarity, a triple post day, something I haven't done since the early summer when I was posting two pages of a short story plus an original post.

But tonight, after reading a few of my favorite bookmarked blogs (one of which I just deleted because the hypocritical fawning over Obama {among other things} made me want to puke, and no it's not any of the ones I follow nor have listed on my blog) gushing over with big old crocodile tears, I just had to respond to it.

People, it was just a freakin' election. God didn't drop a bolt of lightening down from the heavens, anointing Obama as his chosen one to lead the little sheep out from the big bad forest. Get over it.

It wasn't so much as Obama having concrete plans to back up his words, as it was that people were tired of eight years of Republican rule (yes I'm a Republican). So far, Obama hasn't proved to me he can do the job. Shoot, he hasn't proved to anyone that he did anything of merit during his short stint in the US senate or his stint in the Illinois senate.

Until the man can prove he can make the tough decisions, don't anoint him as the savior of the holy grail that is America.

Because quite frankly, I don't think he can make the tough decisions, therefore, he ain't gonna be the savior of the holy grail that is America.

This concludes my take on the 2006-08 election cycle which culminated on the election of Barack Obama as the 44th president of these United States. I will now leave the issue of national politics alone until the next presidential election cycle, which is due to start in 2010.


  1. yikes! i hope you still come to visit me. obama is not a savior...he is just a man. i did vote for him...because he has what i be a good plan to get out of this mess.

    republicans have george bush to thank for the defeat.

  2. @ Merelyme: Don't worry, I'll still come and visit.

    Believe it or not, I have come across a multitude of Obama supporters who very much like you.

    Thoughtful, respectful of other viewpoints and great conversationalists.

    I just happened to hit a few bloggers who were more on the over-enthusiatic side of things.

    It is what it is.

    And yes, unfortunately, Republicans have GWB to a certain degree, to blame for their election loss.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
