Alrighty. I'll let you know beforehand. I'm politically unbiased. Actually, I lie. I'm politically uninterested. So I don't play favorites. 'Cause I usually don't care enough. But this has got me going. People tout Obama as savior of the entire planet. The entire planet. And this was being said many months before be acutally was elected. I dunno about you, but I don't know about many unkrupt politicians. And the lame excuse "Well, they're krupt too" is a terrible excuse. So, what's so great about Obama here? Things you're not allowed to say: 1. He's the frist African-American president. (Really, what does African American mean nowadays? The color of their skin is black, or dark? Or bottom-side-of-a-twinkie-yellow?) 2. Anything about Bush. The man's long gone and served his time. I'd love some peace and quiet if I were him. 3. He's going to fix the country. 4. He's going to save the world. 5. He's going to [insert action here] The "going to's" are for the campaing trail. The "is doing" is for when they're in office. What is he doing that makes him so great. Not what he's going to do But I have been watchin' ole Obama man a little bit. I especially enjoyed his speech at the NAACP. "Yeah. You're black. What the heck does it matter?" I may have paraphrased, but that's what I got from it. And I respect the man for it. Whoever wrote that speech worded it just enough to where the country isn't screaming "RACIST PRESIDENT." Off Topic: What does the NAACP do nowadays? Haven't they served their purpose? Another Off Topic: And what's will all these Female only, and Black Only, and Black Female only scholarships? Being a white male somehow makes me a bad candidate to win those scholarships. But other than that, I only know he's supported massive government spending. I may have heard the wrong things, but is it true that the national debt has quadrupled since his election? Also, did he have any control over the Proposition in California? I know he supports gay rights, so there must be some kinda barrier that kept him from affecting the bill. Aren't there soldiers still over in Iraq? And soldiers still being sent there? Wasn't he supposed to take 'em out? I'm all for giving the man the praise that everyone else on the internet gives him. But only if he deserves it. The man has a metric crapton of charisma. There is absolutely no denying that. But I don't know if the government used that to their advantage. Using Obama as a mere puppet to do their bidding. Because, if Obama does it, then he gets mass approval (though lately his policy approval has been going down. I don't understand it.) This is as confusing to me as the complete obsession over Michael Jackson after he died. I saw a 400 page book in walmart today. "The Final Years of Michael Jackson." Taking advantage of a dead man much? I just may go crawl in my hole and never vote.
