Sam, you quite literally have NO evidence what-so-ever for that statement other than that you wish it to be true. Saying I'm having a hard
time understanding your opinion is fine as long as you know that it is only your opinion. I really don't care if you have read somewhere in some
poll that people only voted "Against" the party of Bush and not "For" the party of Obama, it does not give you a monopoly on the "Truth" and
acting as if it does only makes you look childish.
That said, it may be factual that many voters voted against a continuance of Bush's policies; or, it may be that people were encouraged by then Sen.
Obama's rhetoric. Everyone has their reasons for the way they voted, and their reasons are myriad, and personal to each individual voter as is the
case in any election.
However, I don't believe I have a hard time understanding why you would want your view to be true. You want to believe that the only way a half
black maybe Kenyan, probably Muslim, certainly Communist, and not at all like you, man named Barrack Hussein Obama could ever win the Presidency of
the United States of America is if it were some backlash against the last President. And now that he's here, he's destroying your country and you
want it back, dammit. Come on... you know that's how you feel, go ahead and say it. There's alot of people just like you on this website...and
judging from stars and flags there's more of you then there are of people like me. Go ahead, feel free you'll probably gain some people's respect
if you just come right out and say it. Spew your hate and fear. No one will blame you.
But it won't make your personal views anymore true or anymore verifiable. The truth is, this Country is more homogenized (hint to Sam: think Milk
the drink, not Milk the movie) then it has been in the past. We're pretty much the same in the suburbs as we are in the city, and from coast to
coast. Our differences are only magnified by the lens of the media, and Obama is a good example of how we can come together; but unfortunately also a
good example of how the media can distort our differences. I could go on with you, but it would not be worth the time. No lessons will be learned
here today, and only anger will ensue. I bid you good day.
