Bloggah


I've decided that there are two ways I could look at what's going on in Afghanistan and Pakistan. A) with sadness an trepidation or B) like a very good Dan Brown novel. I think I'll go with B, I mean as long as I feel better right? ;p.
When I pick up the New York Times, I read the headlines like a 3D adventure that the media is taking me on. And whose to say I'm wrong? My views don't hurt anyone, they're just my opinion. Along the same lines, I voted for Obama-obviously-and I can tell you now what I will twenty years from now, I will vote for him again and again and again. Why? Because I would rather have a centrist, cerebral President than a "maverick" with a psycho right wing Vice President. You don't like Obama's policies? Let's take a stroll down the 'what if' lane, shall we? What if McCain and Palin won? What if instead of putting regulations on the financial sector, they didn't? And what if these financial institutions that were on the verge of collapsing, taking down our economy with them, were allowed to fail? What kind of America do you think we would be living in?? What if McCain followed the Bush Doctrine and decided a pre-emptive strike on Iran would solve all our problems? (bomb bomb bomb Iran, anyone?)
Ick. It's no fun traveling down the what if lane. So in conclusion, I don't regret my vote. I never will. Does that mean I love every decision this man has made?? NO. But it's still 100 times better than any decision the other man would have made!
Off to enjoy my New York Times!

I think that many people forget this. So many invested their hopes and dreams into him. Usually, people vote against presidential candidates - but America voted FOR Obama. Something that emotional is hard to put in perspective - so thanks for reminding us.

I agree with nerd queen. but i also think some ppl voted against mccain and palin though, and not necessarily FOR obama.

Good perspective... in all the drama, I lost sight of the 'lesser of two evils'

i very much agree. I voted for obama, and although i might now agree with 100% of his policies, i honestly believe that he's trying his best. and yes, i'd probably vote for him again. :s
