In the past, I've written, I will be bold and say, some fairly strong rants around the Presidential Election. It's been a topic that has tended to elicit some kind of opinion or feeling from me. This time around, all that boils up is a big
And not just because Obama and Romney have fairly ho-hum personalities, but because, does it really matter? Yeah, okay, I can hear some of you screaming now,about how a Republican presidency will set us back to the stone age, or some such blather. I don't happen to buy it, I think he is just Status Quo in a suit, just like Obama. He's running for President because he wants to be President, because it's "his turn". It's a trophy for his mantle, a plaque for the wall, a blue ribbon for his scrapbook, he doesn't give a fuck about making anything better for us OR his base. He throws out red meat because he wants to be elected. Does anyone seriously think he truly believes in ANYTHING he says? He's just another lifeless, pathetic banker who wants to accumulate status and wealth.
Obama, if re-elected, will be more of the same, which frankly has been a snooze-fest. Well, unless you are the unlucky brown, smudgy person to find yourself in the shadow of a drone. He isn't going to make anything better for anyone because he doesn't have the temerity or drive. He's very good at BECOMING the President. He just isn't very good at BEING the President.
So, while I know I should give a fuck, I don't. No matter who wins, it will continue to be a Washington DC of clusterfuck gridlock and political butthurt. Nothing will happen, nothing will change, and we'll continue to be holding the bag.
If you want your life to get better, you are on your own.
