We seem to have created a new low in politics; I know that is an oxymoron, politics by nature are low as in nasty, still the level of lying, the lack of character and other sad desperate measures to win votes is impressive. Every time Mitt opens his mouth I cringe, same with Gingrich and Santorum. I will say I am tickled in a “he’s my weird uncle way” with Ron Paul and I am disturbed by his brush off of his self published racists pamphlets it is all so strange. I wonder if it ends will me miss the shenanigans will we? I think maybe, I am saddened by the lies and the attacks on Obama and I know Obama is a flawed person and flawed President but I have deeply enjoyed his successes and I like where the country is headed under his guidance plus I will accept the pace of our recovery. I am happy to say we are spoiled, all of us by his elegance and his intelligence and class. His lovely openness to bipartisanship and his willingness to try it, we are spoiled. He reads unlike the last buffoon who ruined us absolutely thrust us into chaos. How will we manage under Mitt or Newt? Scary thought. My husband says we will win, Obama will get re-elected. I hope so.
