Procrastinating the Inevitable...

It's Been Long Enough...

By thePatrick

So, the long awaited day of your deliverance has finally come. And, the long awaited day of my blogging about politics has come, as well. Finally. But, I promise to make it short. I only have a few things.

1: I rather enjoyed the inauguration. Why? Because I watched it by streaming it online from the New York Times. Who were the talking heads for the New York Times? Nobody. That's right. So, I got to sit there and listen to the opening prayer (divisive) the Obama's Inaugural Address (well spoken), the fancy poem (aren't poems supposed to rhyme) and the benediction (rad-tastic. Also, rhymed more than the poem) and I did all this without hearing somebody tell me what I should think about it. Pundits are dumb.

B: It gets me upset (I won't use angry because I have yet to want to strangle someone with a paper towel) when I hear that people say that they want Obama to fail. You do realize that, whether you voted for him or not, he is the President now, right? If he fails, then we're still going to have him be the president for the next 4 years. If he fails, America fails, and last I checked, we live in America, right? So, whether or not you agree with him, you shouldn't want his policies to send America further down the crapper than it already is.

And Last: For my politically minded friends (I'm looking at you Co-G, or Co-C, or Chris, or whatever you're going by now), you should check out http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/. They took account for about 600 campaign promises made by Obama during the election. And they are going to keep it updated on how many he actually keeps, fails to keep, and has to compromise on. Every one of them has description with exactly how he kept the promise or didn't. It's actually pretty rad.

On a completely different note, I'm going to buy a new hoodie. Reggie is starting to fall apart, so I guess it's time.


I love political rants! To explain why some of us conservatives want Obama to "fail" I refer you to the Hannity interview of Limbaugh. If you don't wish to watch the whole thing just skip ahead to 4:50. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4YcwI4NlKA
I am sorry to refer you to pundits but it's the best I can do without ranting like I tend to do.

I forgot to mention that I saw one of the head guys of your link on tv the other day. I forgot to write it down so thanks! It's a great site!

you're not going to buy the "small" hoodie are you?

btw my word verification is "coprog" it sounds like some sort of government entitlement program doesn't it :)
