I was watching the inauguration the other day and they interviewed all these people who acted like it was the greatest day of their lives. This one lady goes, "I'm so glad we can participate in this happy, blessed event." And then everybody else was like, "We're proud to witness the inauguration of the first black president."
That's what it's all about for these people. The first black president. Race has got nothing to do with being a decent president. During the campaign, I actually saw a sign in my city saying "If Obama doesn't get elected, racism is behind it."
I can't believe people. Every day I think I can't hate people any more, and every day I'm proven wrong. If they're that simplistic in their opinions, I'm deeply concerned about the welfare of our country. These are the people voting on our leader. I heard several women saying they voted for Hilary because they thought it was time for a female president. That's real intelligent.
Do people think Obama is just going to wave his magic wand and poof the stock market back up? They think he's just going to fix everything. Sorry to be Johnny Raincloud, but that's just not possible. It has to work through by itself and eventually it'll go back up. How do they think he's going to make all these new jobs? He's not God.
I didn't like either candidates, but McCain could have won if he hadn't done such a crap ass job of campaigning. I would have rather seen him in office than Obama. We do not need a socialist president. This country has been capitalist for three centuries, and that's how it needs to stay. Socialism is not the way to go. It's eerily similar to communism, and that really concerns me.
If he calls for oil drilling in the arctic I'm going to shoot someone. Polar bears come before oil.
Politics piss me off.
