I think that some of those who voted for Obama did so on “principle” but didn’t really expect such a novice to win.
They wanted the bragging rights of how “good” they were and how they could rip McCain’s administration to shreds because they wanted “the other guy”.
Except he won. And is doing all of the things his critics predicted.
I had a Democrat confess to me in the wake of 9-11 that she was suddenly SO glad that Gore lost (she didn’t believe he would be able to handle such a situation).
I don’t want an “I told you so” moment. I want our country to be safe. I don’t believe our current President has America’s best interests at heart at home or abroad. He smears the previous administration at every turn (alleging they are criminal, even if they are never prosecuted) and shames America for ever getting involved in foreign affairs. We consume too much. We live too well. But he parties every week in the Big House.
