I am getting really pissed off with this election. If you remember, I called it way back in October of last year that Mitt Romney would be the republican nominee – and I also called it that Mitt Romney would win the national election as well. I’m not taking that away, I still stand my assertion that Obama is doing a horrible job of motivating the democrats to the polls, while his recent announcements in support of gay marriage have done nothing to further his support within his base (those people were already supporting him) and given Romney a boost with the religious whack-job right (who actually might now have supported Romney).
What I’m pissed off about this election is the bullshit that these campaigns are throwing at each other.
Apparently Romney scalped a kid when he was in high school if the internet is to be believed.
Apparently Obama did multiple lines of blow and enjoyed it while in college.
Apparently Romney was part of a rich, entitled group that harassed other kids who didn’t belong.
Apparently Obama told a women their relationship would go nowhere because she wasn’t black.
WHO THE FUCK CARES?!
Why aren’t we talking about policies? Why aren’t we talking about the things they did in office. Why does any of this matter?!
Okay, so Romney apparently cut some kids hair because he didn’t conform with the school policy which required guys to have short hair and this kid was apparently traumatized. (Not traumatized enough to report it to school officials though.) The other people involved are saying that Romney was the ring leader – but it’s not like they don’t have a vested interest to protect their asses (especially the one that’s a teacher now). But let’s back up and look at the act – and compare it to the fact that in the MILITARY TO THIS DAY, if you don’t have the proper hair cut for guys, it is damn near expected that someone else is going to come buzz cut your hair without your permission – so you better have that hair cut.
Obama apparently dabbled in cocaine college. Go ahead, I dare you to raise your hand and say that you never did one illegal thing while you were in college – you never drank underage, you never did anything that someone could try to hurt you with if you ran for president. No one, okay. So why do we care about something that Obama did in college, before the Miami drug scene and before cocaine was really the OMG worst drug ever? We shouldn’t.
We should be talking about the issues people – not these stupid, stupid things that people did in their youth. When each one of you can run for president and come forward and say, “I made no mistakes when I was a teenager” is when I’ll accept that these should be issues. Until then – we should be talking about the things that matter…
