telling it like it is.

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”.

Love,
surya

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.

  1. Duuuuuuuuude, I hear lots of people talking, but what are they saying, and what will they do?! As Elvis said, "… a little less conversation, and a lil more action… so cliche, ha!

  2. Even though I'm not from America I try as much as possible to keep up with the race. Obama is unarguably a good speaker (although it seems a bit nowadays that he's kinda losing steam) and for me what made him likeable was his impression of a sense of hope, and sometimes nowadays we really do need a little hope in our lives. But then there's Hillary who's obviously a whole lot more experienced in the field realistically, and with her and Bill Clinton working as a team (and not necessarily in a VP sense) it probably would do a lot for the US (probably).

    John McCain, I don't know. Honestly, I just hope he is still alive and breathing next year 🙂 Sometimes I worry though that the Democrats may be busy fighting over which of their candidates should take the crown, the Republicans might just end up slipping it out from under their noses.

  3. If your not american why do you care about whats going on america?

    Why not focus on your own turd world nation?

    How come its ok to make snide comments on a mans age but not his race?
