How I Really Feel About "Losing"
Yes, the man I voted for lost the election. I didn't really like him anyway. I think that's why he lost. Very few people were actually happy to vote for him, they mostly voted against the other guy. Meanwhile, the people who voted for BO were excited to vote for him. Big difference. I am not shocked about the loss. I'm surprisingly sanguine about the whole thing. My guy lost. I have concerns about the President Elect, but I'm not too worried. We survived Carter - arguably the worst President ever, and we will get through an Obama Presidency as well. I do not believe that Obama will magically and single-handedly overturn the system of government we have had over the last 232 years. It won't happen like that. When Obama is gone, this will still be the great country it was before he took office, just like it's the same great country is was before GWB took office. Yes we want "our guy" in the office, but he's not. "Our guy" wasn't even on the ballot this year. What did we really expect?
