politcally incorrect most likely, but i'll give it a go.

April 12, 2011

(picture from our girls trip to visit this lovely lady back east two years ago...can't believe it's been that long!)

This year on my new years resolution list, I added: watch the morning news.

This was mainly because a lot of the information I get about current affairs is usually from my parents stressing out about the U. S. of A far, far away; so I decided that I'd like to become more aware because it's important (for me, at least) to be informed, and to think about things for myself.

And I don't like to get too political, mainly because as I've mentioned before, once I get going, I really get going, and then blogging would become more aggravating than relaxing... (just ask my friend Austin about our discussions on becoming future presidential campaign running mates, I tend to get overanxious) -- however I just have a few things to say for today, simply because it matters to me.

1. Donald Trump (future president? really?) - Although agreeable on several issues, (like your plan of action regarding China) you need to drop the "birthing" issue when it comes to Obama. He wasn't my first choice either, and I think he's creating a financial disaster (understatement), but whether he was born in Kenya or Hawaii is beside the point now.

2. I am really, really liking a lot of what Mitt Romney has had to say lately.

3. Obama, I like you when I see you interviewed on TV -- a lot. Especially on the Ellen Degeneres show. I wish you were my next door neighbor, even.
But just not the president.

Also on my new years resolution list: (of course) finish the Harry Potter series. And to be honest, regardless of my political frustrations, at the moment Professor Umbridge is far more aggravating than any other political person or party or debate I know*
And she's fictional.

Okay, I love finding out what bloggers think about politics. Because sometimes it isn't what I expect.

I agree with you on Obama. Good guy, fabulous orator, cool family. President? mmmmm....

I'm just still convinced he didn't have enough experience coming into this.

Thanks for being honest!

Donald Trump? At first I thought this was a joke.


Then I thought it was ridiculous.


And now, well... Donald Trump. Really?


Maybe?

I loved this post. I don't usually talk politics either because some people have a almost outright hatred for the President, and me personally, I can never hate anyone. But Donald Trump?!?! Maybe he feels that because he knows money, he knows about what it takes to be a President but he needs to sit down.Really.
