Dear Andrew, Chris & Ed,
President Obama is not an Ultimate Fighter who will exact the revenge that you seek on Mitt Romney.
You are not the only people watching this debate and what the President says is not personal to just you, so prepare yourselves. The President represents all Americans and he isn’t going to just say what you want to hear.
This debate is not the actual election, don’t freak out if Mitt Romney has a good “performance” while telling his blatant lies. He’s been rehearsing for this moment for over 5 years, he ought to be good at it by now. And he can afford to hire (and fire) the best coaches.
As the Republican media spins like hell after the debate, please don’t curl up into the fetal position, stick your giant thumbs in your puckered little mouths and whine like someone took your “bankie” away. Put on your big boy pants and act like an adult. You can do it.
What the candidates say actually matters, not just how slickly and passionately they deliver it. Fuck style, give me some substance.
If you give a shit about the future of our country and want to see President Obama continue to move us forward, don’t let your personal expectations and desires interfere with your other higher brain functions, like reasoning and tact.
If you can’t handle any of the above, just SHUT. THE. HELL. UP. and let the rest of us do your jobs for you.
I’ve decided I’m going to post short, random thoughts as they occur to me. I have a lot of them and they don’t always warrant a full post, but at least deserve a thought or to. Maybe they will spark others to think more about them and act.
It seems that the Republicans are plotting to hurt our country and it’s economy with this debt limit game and holding senior citizens and medicare hostage so they can give more to the rich. Isn’t that treason? Their strategy of opposing everything the President does, to me, shows an utter lack of patriotism. Definition of “treason” from Dictionary.com.–noun1. the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.2. a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.
