I hate politics. Absolutely detest, utterly abhor. Why? In my opinion, anyone who wants to be in politics shouldn’t be there. Hidden agendas can and are destroying our country. Being the President of the United States is not an easy job. No one in their right mind would want to do that unless they had something to gain from it. The key, in my not terribly humble opinion, would be to find someone capable of doing it well, who is willing to do it, but who doesn’t actually WANT to do it.
So, on to the topic of The Great Obamanation. This election represents a landmark event. Barack Obama is an intelligent, capable guy. He is well educated, well spoken, and very people savvy. I did not vote for him. In fact, I didn’t vote at all. I couldn’t in good conscience pick between what I felt to be 2 bad choices. I mean, if you were given the choice between cancer and getting shot, would you actually choose either? Yeah.
Between McCain and Obama, Obama is capable of being a much better President. But the truth is, Mitt Romney would have been a better President than both by far. It’s like the old show The Weakest Link. The goal is to get rid of the real contenders. I thought it was pretty funny that at the start of the race, the only thing the Democrat and other Republican candidates could agree upon is that Romney shouldn’t be President. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Why? Well, because he’s Mormon, of course, which in reality is as biased an argument as not choosing Obama because he’s black. Discrimination obviously isn’t limited to Racism.
So, I wish Obama well, and I really do hope that he proves to be a capable President. I figure at the very least he’ll play it straight his first term, and hopefully a better candidate will surface (or re-surface) for the next round. If not, well, I can always move to Costa Rica 🙂
UPDATE: Well, I was wrong. Not only did Obama turn out to be an incompetent President, he hasn’t played it straight at all! The dumb bastard is spending us into the next Great Depression…as far as I’m concerned, Obama is the Anti-Christ 🙁
Oh well. Maybe Romney will run again in 2012, and perhaps people will vote intelligently this time…
UPDATE 2: Nope. People in this country really are idiots, electing the same moron again. Sigh. I give up, time to move to another country.
