Okay, so I know this was incredibly immature and unnecessary, but I just felt like doing it. I drove past the protesters in front of the mall yesterday and they were holding up those ridiculous signs saying how bad Obama is and how we should vote him out of office and I got so offended I gave them the finger as I drove by. I don't know why I was so offended, I guess I was just outraged at their ignorance and the ignorance of the other Tea Party people in this world. Yes, I know they have just as much right to be out there as I do but if they would listen to the facts and not the trash spewed on Fox News maybe they might have another opinion.
We are better off than we were 4 years ago; housing starts are up, the employment figures are up (albeit not as much as they should be). Heck even the market is up. Obama did a good job with the mess he was left with and a congress which was the most divisive in history. Furthermore, I don't want a president in office who only cares about half of this country. I don't one who flips on all the issues that are important to me. I just can't vote for someone like that.
Maybe that's what really offends me. That these people are really willing to have a person in office who would totally turn things upside down and remove the things that we have fought so hard to implement. But then again that's what makes this country great. The mere fact we can have a person like that run for office in the first place. I just hope he doesn't win.
