Dear Barack Obama,
Unlike most politicians, if you actually tells it like its…we’re going to be cool.
My official position is non-partisan and I’m working hard to not endorse any individual candidate. This position has been honed through years of painful political arguments about candidates (specifically 2004). Bickering doesn’t work. I just ended up making the people who already agreed with me feel better, and hardly ever changed minds. It’s a waste of time. It mostly just allows us to babble and show off how smart we are. So now I’m a registered Independent and focus on specific issues. ‘Issues, not candidates’ is my new mantra.
Ok, sorry, Barack. That’s enough babbling about how evolved my positions have become. I wanted to compliment you on your recent speech. You’ll probably catch some crap for this, but I hope you’ll keep telling it like it is. When you said….
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.
“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.
I’m optimistic. But I still remember once upon a time, when John McCain said all kinds of things I loved.
Now I’ll go back to talking specific issues, and not specific candidates.
But nice job, dude. Getting our fuel consumption, sustainability of our food supply, and our general usage of resources in-check is, you know, fairly important. Those are issues I’ll get behind. And yes, Barack, if you get elected, I’ll stop calling you “dude”.
5/27/13 – Not surprisingly the weight of the presidency was far stronger than one man. The rhetoric changed and now the president only apparently dreams of going Bulworth.
