I Can Feel It Already

There isn't even a clear democratic nominee yet and already I can feel the pressure of the November election. I can feel my blood pressure starting to rise, and I know it will be an up-and-down roller coaster ride the entire campaign season.
George Bush got me so aggravated the other day when he spoke in the Israeli Kinnesset about "appeasement" of terrorist groups. Really, George? What is the harm in talking to countries such as Iran and North Korea? What is so bad about diplomacy? Is that "appeasement"? How in the world can we ever get along with other nations when we don't even know what it is that really bothers and upsets them about the US? I know; Bush always says it's that they hate our freedom. Well, Bush, maybe there's more to it than that! Could it be our arrogance? Could it be that the US has portrayed itself during the past 7+ years as the "god of the world"? Could it be that the US has become one big bully that nobody likes?
Then I read my friend Pax Romano's blog today and find this moron, Kevin James, also ranting about how bad Obama is going to be for the US and Israel. To make matters worse, this guy doesn't even know what the hell he's talking about!
It's going to be a long and intense campaign ahead. I am confident Obama can handle it. I'm sure he knows what he's in for. GO OBAMA!

I have been over the campaign a long time ago, but I guess we will continue in this spirit till the new one is elected? and signed in!

The Repugs are going to get very dirty in this battle, just watch. If Hillary gets the nomination they'll trot out all of the "Clinton Fear" they've been braying about for years, and of course they'll appeal to the woman-haters by talking about the fact that she's a woman.

If Barry gets the nod, then LOOK OUT. You mark my words, they'll do everything but call him the N Word to denigrate him, and to appeal to the goddamn south!!

Gird your loins my friends, this is going to get bloody.

Who can seperate the stess from an upcoming election from the stress of having enough income to afford gas?
