When Obama was elected and after we had witnessed the inauguration freak show (reminded me of Stephen King's 'The Stand'), I told a friend I had never before been afraid for my country until that moment. I could not, and still can't, understand how people could be so gullible as to fall for his empty Hope and Change spiel. How could this nobody be elected President of this United States? It's like he was created in a laboratory specifically for this purpose. Where are all the people who said "I knew him when..."? Where's his high school sweetheart, the girl he took to prom? Where are the guys he hung out with? Where are all his college buddies? Did I miss something? Nearly four years later and we still know virtually nothing about this man except perhaps the most important thing of all...his and his cronies "vision" for America.
I've never believed Obama was/is the mastermind behind everything that's happened during his term. He screws up too much when he's on his own without either a minder or a teleprompter. That said, he's had plenty of help, both visible and behind the scenes. Now, here we are on the precipice of doom. A deficit I doubt we'll ever be rid of, a house and senate full of Republicans who've sold us out time and time again. Obamacare has already left its mark with higher premiums for nearly everyone. The not-for-profit hospital system I work for has trimmed and trimmed and trimmed by the millions and yet we still must trim +/- $178,000,000 more over the next couple of years. Gas prices are insane, food has gone up along with everything else. Come January, we are set to be hit with massive tax hikes and no jobs for those who truly wish to work. I could go on and on, but y'all already know this song and all the verses.
Back to Romney. I don't like him, I don't trust him. I still think he's the wrong person and I don't think he'll stand up to the likes of McConnell and Boehner. BUT, I've gone from being afraid for my country to being terrified Obama will win again and what that will mean. So, I will donate dollars and time when I can, I will try to adjust my attitude and, as I have been for a while now, I will pray each and every night that Romney wins and that I am very, very wrong about him.
