Gentle Readers .  .  . and Maxwell,

My dear friend Carol sent me the following email. I ask you to consider it before you cast your vote.

Mad At The President......................for What?
Now, since Obama's regime, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad, and want to take America Back...

BACK TO WHAT or WHERE is my question?

I am voting for PRESIDENT OBAMA no matter what. He should get 8 years in term, because he IS CHANGING America and we all know why THEY don't like it! If Obama wasn't Black, they would be praising and thanking him.

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.
You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.
You didn't get mad when they didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

You didn't get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick... Oh, Hell to the No!

PLEEEASE----circulate this everywhere---people need to be reminded!!!! 2012 is a good year for them to remember! Let's get as passionate about re-electing our  wonderful hard working President Obama as we were when we got him elected! Don't get complacent and don't take for granted he will easily be back in office.

Let's all get busy starting the work today!!!!

Give this MAN credit where credit is due. Black folks stop thinking just because we have a Black President that you were entitled to something without working for it! (Did you think because we got a Black President 4 years ago, you were going to get a check in the mail for $100k or something, maybe the 40 acres and a mule...come on....get real!)

Make a difference Get educated, stop complaining and get back on track to preserving our race and represent like The Obamas. Do your part! VOTE Obama 2012. Spread the word. We have to get out and VOTE like we did 4 years ago...if we want to keep the Obama in office. Dont think for one minute that your Vote doesn't count!

  1. Dear Janie, I'm going to paste your blog URL for today's posting in an e-mail to a lot of friends. Of course, I'll be preaching to the choir but they'll cheer as they read this posting. I simply cannot understand why this election is so close. Peace.

  2. Much to think about. I'm not a citizen so I can't vote.

  3. My polling place is in within walking distance from my house for the first time ever.

  4. Like a true Democrat you still are blaming Bush. What Bush/Chaney did or didn’t do is of no importance here. It is what Obama has NOT done. He has not lowered unemployment…instead he has increased it. Also, the Democrats do not count the people who are unemployed and have given up looking for a job as being part of the unemployed. Ridiculous! He stated many times his administration would be on C-Span…but the first thing that happened was the health scam written behind closed doors and forced, through political pressures to be passed without reading it. The housing market is still down due to Democratic decisions…like Barney Frank swearing Fannie Mae was solid (not mentioning that his boyfriend was a big wig in Fannie Mae) and forcing lenders to lower standards so unqualified people can buy houses they could never afford. His disdain for anything relating to ‘The American Way’ along with his love for the European market, which is going bankrupt just like the US. His links to Muslim beliefs that endanger the US and his tendency to go around the Constitution to get his way, and his lies are what makes him hated. His color has nothing to do with anything. He is an incompetent and only those who want to live of the government tit and get free stuff that we can’t afford to give will vote for him. No one can call themselves a true American and lover of freedom and vote for him. That is only a few reasons why we need to get rid of him.

  5. This is wonderful, thank you so much for posting it! I've already voted for our great President.

  6. Here in Oregon we have mail-in voting, and I voted for Obama a week ago.

  7. Pretty powerful argument!!

  8. Poor Bushy, still getting kicked. What sane person would ever want to be president?

  9. I, like the rest of the normal people, have clearly decided who I will vote for months ago. What I am still having a tough time with are my state questions.

    I will likely not decide them (or more specifically #2) until I actually step in the booth.

    But I am looking forward to the whole day with my boys. :) Which will likely mean that by ten am I will be flip flopping on that statement.


    As The Bloggess stated previously, "Fuck it. I'm voting for the eagle."

  11. I voted, but Romney is such a sure-fire bet to win our state by a landslide, my vote is but a pile of spit in the ocean. (sigh)

  12. It'll be interesting to see who will win. I'm heading out to vote later today. It's my first time voting and I'm so excited. ;)


Got your panties in a bunch? Dig 'em out, get comfortable, and let's chat.
