You want Obama to do what?!?!
It's been really hard trying to leave politics out of my blog. I mean really really hard. I'm rather opinionated and always have a thing or two to say about what's happening on Capitol Hill. But I can just not hold this in any longer. The other day, while watching the news, they interviewed a lady about Obama being president and her opinions so far on his economic policies. This woman immediately answered in a rather forceful but ectatic tone that she was extremely happy Obama was her president. "Why?" the newscaster said. "Well because, now that Obama is president, I don't have to worry about how I'm going to pay my mortgage or my light bills, or any of my other bills." ::STOP RIGHT THERE:: (we have a dvr, so I watched it again. REWIND Yes, she did say that) So let me get this straight. Because Obama is the president, you don't have to worry about your bills? So, is Obama going to personally pay your mortgage for you? Because I can guarantee that he isn't going to magically appear on your front door step and hand you cash. Look people, we have some problems far greater than the economy, when people think that Obama is going to PAY their bills for them. I mean wow. Just wow. How did you get past your freshman year of high school not understanding that? Do you really think that because this man is president that all of your responsibilities will go away? Because I'm 100% sure your wrong on that. This amazes me. Well, that is all for now. I need to quit typing before I open my mouth and offend someone reading this. I think I'll tell my dear husband that we just don't need to pay our mortgage for the month and pray that the Obama fairy lands on our doorstep to pay it for us.
