Don’t ya know I’m human too? More people need to listen to this song.
Cause let me tell you. If another country treated their President as badly as we treat ours, we would be sending in our military and taking over their country for “their own good”.
I am embarrassed by our country’s actions.
We elected this president. Twice. We as a country had the choice, and now we have to live with it. Is he the best president? No. Is he the worst president? No. But he is most disrespected president that I have ever seen. And for that reason, I am embarrassed of our country.
When they show his speeches, and one whole side of the room sits on their hands the whole time, and sometimes even boo him or shout at him, that is blatant rudeness and disrespect. We should be showing a united front, to our country and the world. What makes us any better than any other country? We can’t even agree to disagree. So what gives us the RIGHT to sit in judgment on other countries politics, when we can’t control our own?
Obviously the people chose to vote mostly Republican this mid-term round of elections, which leaves us with a sitting Democratic President, and a Republican Congress. That’ll show those damn Democrats! And ought to help get things done around here. Pfffft. Of course, when Bush was the Republican President, everybody bad mouthed him. So we elected Obama. That’ll show those damn Republicans! We seem to hate all our Presidents, no matter the party. It’s like another civil war, with Democrats versus Republicans. But with Obama, the dissenters have taken it to a whole new level.
I love how we look back and say what a great president so and so was. Like Bill Clinton. How quickly we forget the problems he had with keeping his zipper up. Ahem. (Makes us think the TV show Scandal is more than real.)But let Obama laugh and joke with a woman IN PUBLIC and people jump all over that. Most of our previous president’s have had their own scandals. The Bush’s are now pushing Jeb to the forefront for a run at the job. And most people think Hillary Clinton will be making a run for POTUS.
Speaking of Scandal, or West Wing, or Madam Secretary, I think they do depict to some extent what indeed does go on behind the scenes in the political arena. The President is usually not the most powerful person in the White House.
With all that said, I don’t care what your politics are. It is a personal thing to many. I do care how our country acts. We act like a bunch of spoiled, entitled children compared to the rest of the world. We need to unite, and make this country the best it can be.
All the Chicago Bears fans this week are saying fire EVERYONE because of their dismal performance and start from scratch. Seriously, not a bad idea for our country. I heard of some voters who purposely did not vote for one incumbent during the mid-term elections. Get rid of lobbyists, war chests, pork, favors….you name it. Do good. Be good. Make this a proud country again!
