Much was made all weekend on the political talk shows about the conclusion of Obama’s first hundred days.
You must understand that I’m a nut about voting, elections and my country. That includes the President.
In case you don’t believe me, this is the picture and email I sent out on Election Day, November 11, 2008.
Hey, it’s me, Christine, voting for the first black man running for President.
Thanks Martin, Bobby, & JFK for making it possible. You should know, I didn’t vote for him because he’s black, but I know without you guys I wouldn’t have the opportunity to vote for him at all.
And here’s the thing. Obama might not remember my name, but it doesn’t matter, because I know his. And, win, lose or draw, he has made me feel better about my country again.
Vote, friends and family. Except Mom, Uncle Gerry, Aunt Molly, John P and Dee. Conservatives are supposed to vote TOMORROW, not today.
Love you all.
It took me a long time in the voting booth to get the picture. I kept leaving part of me or the voting machine out. I was facing the wrong way under the curtain so finally someone asked me if I needed help. “Yes,” I said, “I need lots of help, but not with this vote. Thank you though.” (Always use a thank you at the end of sarcastic remarks in a predominately Republican town. Always.)
Anyway, you now get that I’m a bit nutty when it comes to our country, which means I have thought a lot about the first hundred days of the Presidency. Here is my review, which not surprisingly, didn’t seem to be addressed at all by any of the Pundits.
Obama’s First Hundred Days
In this new inclusive; it’s all about all of us Obama rhetoric, we must look at more than just Obama’s actions, but those of everyone involved.
Kudos galore to President Bush (the one who just left, and I join those that couldn’t wait for him to be gone.) You have handled yourself with dignity and elegance by not getting involved as Obama tries to deal with the mess my US has become.
Kudos to Michele … love the garden, love the strong arms every picture shows holding up the hopes of us all.
Cheney. What do I say to you? I do wonder if when you wake up in the morning your wife looks at you and says, “Dick, Dick, Dick. Keep it shut today. You had your chance and will have to live with the perception of who you are and what you did. And, if I were younger, I’d divorce you in a heartbeat.”
Vice President Biden. You are the only thing that really scares me. Thinking before you speak can really assist you moving forward. And, I do hope that Obama is telling you to stop or he won’t have those weekly private lunches that mean so much to you anymore.
You go Hillary!!!! Those frequent flyer miles are adding up for sure and it seems you are doing a great job of not upstaging anyone. That said, add a colorful scarf now and then ok? To think I thought you were a sore loser. Well done.
Mr. President Obama. I have no friggin’ idea if what you have done this past hundred days is fabulous or a disaster. No idea whatsoever. And neither does anyone else. But, I will tell you that I love the way you have done it all. And, if that is any measure of the results that will surface over the coming few years, you are winning big time.
And, me and you and the rest of Americans? Not sure I did much in the first hundred days to assist you. Tell me what to do.
