Probably the Only Political Post You'll Ever Read Here

To say I'm not really into politics would be an understatement. Yes, I have views and opinions but I can't back them up in a good discussion because my political views are based on gut feelings. Either I like a candidate or I don't. I haven't been thrilled with the presidential scene, but I did think Mitt Romney had potential to do good things. Clinton wouldn't have been my choice, but I was curious to see how things would go with her in office. Whenever I think of McCain I think all the bad things I usually think about older guys with younger women.

Obama though. I just have a really bad feeling about him. I hear little snippets of news about him that make me think he's a bad man, and then remember that the media LOVES this guy. Which makes me wonder what sorts of things they AREN'T telling us. I don't like how he bald-face lies about things that of course he's going to get called out on. I don't like how he has shady dealings when buying property. I don't like how he blames his campaign people for things that were said during his campaign instead of owning up to them himself. I imagine that's how he'd run the country - lying, blaming, dishonest dealings.

And do you know what REALLY bugs me? It's when I make these points about Obama to people and get told, "Well, he's a politician, what do you expect?"

What I EXPECT is someone with integrity. A little like Jack Ryan. He's brave, honest, a family man. Plus he's hawt! Why isn't there ever a Jack Ryan on the ballot? The White House could really use some eye candy, don't you think? Do you really have to be a bad (and unattractive) person to get ahead in politics? Or is it that we as Americans CHOOSE these bad (ugly) people to put on our ballots and lead our country?

So today, to add insult to injury, Obama is having a rally between my office and my home and they expect it will add at least two hours to my commute tonight. At LEAST. Thanks a LOT, Obama. I'm so writing in Jack Ryan in November.

I'd vote for Jack Ryan.

I'd also vote for Han Solo, but I wouldn't vote for Luke Skywalker, too squeaky clean, and we all KNOW who his father is.

I once wrote in Yoda. I was 19, annoyed about something, probably everything.

I think this year I'll write in Batman.

I'm not American so I can't vote but I do have the same weird feeling about Obama. I don't even have as many facts as you do to back it up but something about him being the media's darling AND being so smooth just makes me nervous.....

I keep fighting my knee-jerk reaction to vote for Brian Moore just to freak out my in-laws. Not only do I not know how to sew or properly make jello...I also vote for the Socialists! SCANDAL!

I could get behind the Batman campaign though. Especially if instead of Hail To the Chief they played the Batman Theme when he appeared. duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh BATMAN!

My dad and I wish Morgan Freeman would run for president. We just love him. We don't care if he doesn't know a single thing about politics, we automatically trust him. That's the thing about people with charisma: they get trust whether it's earned or not.
