|Let’s Get Ready to RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBLE|
I have a confession:
Today I won’t be searching boards for reaction to the debate, I didn’t follow trending hash tags, and with the exception of NPR* I have avoided all debate talk.
Last night, I tuned into repeats of Tosh.0 rather than the town hall style debate.
I have an extreme case of Election Fatigue.
I’m tired of emails from Jill and Joe Biden; Tagg, Josh and Ann Romney; MoveOn.org and the like. I’m waiting on Bo the Dog to send me something.
I’m sick of Facebook postings from people who could give two bothers** any other time about our political system, the same ones who take news from The Onion as true. I’m tired of Conservatives, Progressives Liberals and any that I missed having their say.
Stick a fork in me, I’m done.
Based on the reaction of The Mister as he watched from downstairs I could tell that:
Obeezy looked tired and like he was on the ropes the whole time***
Mittens was aggressive but came off cocky and arrogant
Nobody answered the damn questions
We the people need to demand our candidates do so much better.
As a consumer (voter) we should demand that:
Obama explain why my college educated friends are fighting to get extra hours at Target. He needs to step into the greatness that is him being the leader.
Romney needs to explain how he intends to actually put the same people back to work in a qualified job. His phantom plan should be examined NOW. It’s not a hide and seek or peep show.
* The alarm is set to NPR and I was trying to get a few extra minutes in my bed
