I normally don't talk politics
But today I had to keep it real.
I voted for this man. I don't consider myself a Democrat nor a Republican. He is the President of the United States. The Leader of the Free World. I understand that those titles come with a great deal of pressure. He has a daunting task. He has to fix all that is broken. Can he? I dunno. He appears to be trying. I'll give him that. I know that no matter what he does he won't. He certainly has his detractors...
Tea Party (Tea Baggers)
I don't understand these people. I did my research on em. And they just sound like a bunch of pissed off people. Why are they pissed off? I dunno. I really don't. I understand that they don't like government's involvement in how we live. I get that. Everybody don't want big brother looking over our shoulder. But if you listen to these people talk, they seem to be misled. Do they think the Obama administration is gonna give all of the benefits to minorities? If you listen to some of them....that's how they sound. They are led by the Great Sarah Pale-lynn. I'd like to sit down and talk to them. One of the things that I'd ask is..."where were you on November 4th, 2008?" That's all I want to know. It's obvious that they didn't show up.
There has been a spark in these groups since Obama came in office. They are practicing for "warfare". REEEEEALLY??? War against your own government? Oooooookay! Free speech means that everybody can say what they want. But freedom of speech aint free. And when you plot to do bodily harm to this man, it's to be accepted? Nah. I didn't like Dumbya. I didn't vote for him either. But I never wanted to see him hurt. He was my President. Just like Bill Clinton was.
Don't think I wasn't gonna talk about your ass, Tavis. See...it ain't racial b/c you're black just like Prez O. I understand that no man, especially an elected official, is above criticism. I'm not gonna say that I've agreed with everything that Prez O has done since he's been in office. I can't say that I put you in the same category with Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reily, and that pill popper Rush Limbaugh. You're in a class by yourself. You are a hater! That's what you are. I don't know when the hate started. Was it when Obama beat Hilary? Tell the truth. Hilary had promised you a position in her administration. Because when he won the nomination, you turned the heat up BEFORE he won the election. Was it when he didn't come on your show? He told you that he couldn't make it and even offered to send Michelle in his place. You said no. The problem that I have with you is the problem that I have with people (black and white) who sat through 8 yrs of bs but wants Prez O to make miracles happen. If you listen to Tavis, you'd think that Barack stole Michelle from him!
Criticism is fair game. I understand that. If you're dissatisfied, you have the opportunity to change it. Don't run ya mouth...vote!
