Well said, Beezzer. I am at this point not committing to either candidate. I did vote for Obama last time. I've not been impressed. I didn't
expect miracles, but I did expect a level of dedication and commitment and gravity that so far, he has failed to demonstrate during a presidency we
all knew was going to be tough.
Actually on many state ballots there is a write-in candidate named, honestly, Santa Claus www.santaclausforpresident.com...
I'm halfway tempted
to vote for. It is funny but when I showed his video to my 8 year old she critiqued it mercilessly, as she did the presidential and vice presidential
debates. Her dad and I might have gone a bit too far instilling the value of critical thinking and analysis in her.
Getting back to the subject, no, I do not believe for one moment that Obama's broad unspecific mention of the word "terror" in his speech in any way
means what he now claims. It's absurd and really stretching to think this absolves him in any way for the failures of his administration in this
I also wanted to kick that ninny undecided voter that was questioned in the audience (in the CNN) broadcast, who said that basically out of respect
for the commander in chief we should not question Obama's handling of the whole mess. Sheeplethink at its most outrageous was on display there. My
blood usually does boil when it comes time for the comments from the peanut gallery. It's rare they find people who are actually capable of
comprehending what they heard and articulating a coherent response.
I also thought Candy Crowley did an abysmal job as a moderator. Her bias was clearly on display and she did a horrible job making sure each candidate
got their fair share of talking time. Obama went on and on several times. But Romney gets flak for being "unlikable" by many people because he was
trying to assert his right to a fair share of talking time.
Sorry I think I just ranted here. Now despite the tone of my post, I again assert I'm NOT in Romney's camp either. I have got my eye on him, too.
