Brilliant, OP! S/F!!!
Great job bringing up sources from a variety of places, and pointing out what progress (to rebuild our nation after the Bush-leaguers got through with
it) has been made.
People harping on Obama, as though he has complete
control of ANYTHING is myopic and sad. At least he's had the guts to confront the
gainsayers (and grudge-holding sore losers that have done EVERYTHING they could to stop him just out of greed and spite).
When people talk about the NDAA and "black-bag kidnapping", they seem to think that it's a random choice of "victim", when it's clearly meant to
discourage American citizens from SUPPORTING terrorism. I'm so sick and tired of the sweaty-palmed straw-graspers!
Yesterday on NPR they aired a tape of a woman talking to her 4-year old, who spontaneously burst into tears one day after having reached her limit of
NPR. Her mom asked her what the matter was, and she said, in her darling little 4-year-old voice:
"I'm just so tired of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney!"
4 YEARS OLD, and she said that, while sobbing.
People need to put on their grown-up pants and realize that times have evolved since the Founding Fathers, and hardly ANYTHING is the same as it was
then. I had a Ron Paul sign in my yard around primary time...even switched to Republican (Gha!!) so I could vote for him in the event he was going to
He didn't, and the choice offered up now is abysmal. Right back to where we were. I switched my registration back to Unaffiliated, and I am voting
for Obama, for all the same reasons as the OP, and also because he's got the knowledge and background to work for the regular people and to
actively organize community progress.
Romney can throw money at his "church" (and I use the word euphemistically) until the cows come home, but he will NEVER understand what it's like
to be a typical working American, EVER. Having someone in the White House who is aware of social issues and stands his ground against the goobers in
Congress is worthy of more time to sort things out.
