Okay. As I've admitted in previous posts, I did not vote for Barack Obama. I also said I was open to his ideas and his presidency. I still think he'll be fine. BUT, this open letter to his kids in Parade Magazine... it's a little thick... a little too much. Have you seen it? Behold the great man's words:
"...And I realized that my own life wouldn't count for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfillment in yours. In the end, girls, that's why I ran for President: because of what I want for you and for every child in this nation. "
Really. He was thinking about his kids and the nation's kids and that's why? PUH-LEEEEZE! He says that like running for president is an option for every parent out there. UGH! I can't even think straight, he sounds so flippant.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still hopeful, but I'm also glad that in case there is more of this type of shit, I can still say I didn't vote for him.
Classic case of "O-M-G, do you hear yourself?"
