President Barack Hussein Obama

I haven't posted anything political in a while, mainly because I'm depressed and disgusted with the whole process right about now. The mainstream press, with very, very, few exceptions, threw out any and all pretense of neutrality and became an all-out balls-to-the-wall supporter of Obama and the democratic party. The Republican leadership decided the best way to run against a young, well-spoken, but clearly far left candidate with major issues was to select John McCain, a war hero to be sure, but also a very old, very grumpy, RINO who was and is strongly disliked by a very large percentage of the Republican base, which is made up of conservatives, a fact the Republican leadership amazingly continues to ignore.

Had we run a viable conservative candidiate, I would have accepted the end results a lot better than I do now, because I feel we gave the election away.

But Obama won, and, for better or worse, I salute him as my President.

Oh yeah, I also pray that all the members of SCOTUS remain healthy and active for at least four more years. As President, there's only so much damage Obama could do, but that damned Supreme Court can, and has, reigned chaos on this nation with one ruling.
