My favorite part of watching the presidential debates is how after the debate is over, the media comes on and tells us what we just saw, and I am left scratching my head as to whether we have all been watching the same thing because our views are so completely different with regard to the same event. It's like looking outside and seeing a snow storm dropping 3 feet of snow all around, and then the news comes and tells us it's sunny outside with temperatures high in the 80's. Alrighty then!
I'd like to point out how ridiculous this notion is that all Barak Obama needed to do to win the debate was show up. I have to wonder just how many screws are loose in the heads of folks who think like that. That's a completely irresponsible approach to choosing a president. How many of us are permitted to show up at our jobs, do nothing, and get rewarded with a promotion or pay raise? How many mothers feel as though simply waking up in the morning is enough effort to put forth into raising responsible human beings? I mean, really. What I've learned from my time on earth is that when we expect NOTHING, we get nothing. I want more for America. I would really like to know why are we asking so little of Barak Obama.
Here's something else I find curious. I keep hearing about how Barak Obama is ahead in the area I live, but if you take a little spin around town, for every 10 McCain/Palin posters I see displayed, I will only see 1 for Barak/Biden. If there is such overwhelming support for this man, as I am being told by media, then why am I not seeing it with my own two eyes? What I hear from the media is completely contradictory to what I am seeing in my every day life. Part of my double major in college was Journalism (many, many years ago so let's not go there). What I am witnessing going on in the media right now is nothing short of scandalous. Reporting the news has been replaced by CREATING the news. What a complete buffoon show. Interjecting your opinions into the news is NOT reporting facts which is what true journalism is all about. Perhaps a refresher course is in order for some people. Here's a clue mainstream media: Do not knock me flat on my face and tell me we're ballroom dancing because I'm not going to buy it.
Rush Limbaugh jokingly says that there are two political parties in the US, the Democrats and Racist America, suggesting that if you do not vote for Obama then you are automatically in the racist camp. Democrats are banking on people being uncomfortable being labeled racist, and use this tactic to fight every difference of opinion. They hope shaming us by screaming racist in our direction will be the nudge we need to come to our senses and over to their side. Fortunately, there are many people who choose not to be manipulated by this song and dance. I don't expect Obama supporters to think the way I think so I don't see what's so hard about them extending me that same courtesy.
I can't wait for this whole thing to be over. I have prepared myself for the possibility of not having the man I want in the White House, but I hold unwavering hope that the best man (my man) will win.
