With only ten full weeks to go, and hundreds of millions of dollars spent on campaign attack ads,, the Presidential election is rapidly approaching here in the States.
What's the general belief by all of us not inflicted with partisan blindness?? The timeless expression of ''we're screwed'' seems to sum it up greatly for the masses.
My personal recollections of past elections goes back 20 years to when Bill Clinton won in 1992.
Being in the heart of the hood, i saw countless adults happy with the results due to the fact that a Democrat won and in our world they were supposed to represent our only hopes in office.
I drank that Kool-Aid for the better part of the following sixteen years.
Now i don't want anyone who still worships Obama reading this to exit stage right believing this will somehow snowball into a 'why we should vote Republican' speech,, that's completely not the point of this at all.
Instead, my focus is what the most internationally watched election on the planet has turned into....a clown car with no brakes and a cliff just ahead
While attack ads and big money have always been part of the election game, never at any point can i remember having such incompetent candidates to choose from.
There always was dirt on the candidates that would get dug up during a campaign, but they still seemed to be far more qualified to run the most powerful and influential nation in the world than the two bozos we have as options.
Obama couldn't have made it easier for the GOP to make him a one term candidate, but yet here he is looking like a second term is just weeks away.
And while few independents will be going out to support Obama again after four years of broken promises and lost hope, Mitt Romney has done everything in his power to make sure that those would-be voters won't be going to the polls at all this year as he continues a campaign that resembles an episode of Mr.Bean a lot more than a man trying to get elected.
Candidates are supposed to at least appear to be open and transparent while running for office.
Obama did a great job of such back in '08 and the combination of a fresh, young face and a positive message of <em>'change'</em> and transparency led independents to flock to him as a potential polar opposite to what's become the status quo in Washington.
It was all clearly b/s halfway thru his first year in office,, but he was already in office.
Romney can't even get the deception of the public part right.
Instead of taking the shots thrown at him by the Dems head on, he chooses to avoid the issues as much as possible.
The public knows he's filthy rich, and we also know that most people who are filthy rich know how avoid paying big taxes,, so he could've done a lot of damage control by simply saying ''F%ck it, i only paid 13% and use offshore accounts to hide money''
It wouldn't have cause a favorable spike in his ratings that week, but if he could've conveyed an actual message of hope for the future of America shortly after weathering that storm he'd be in a lot better shape than he is now.
Romney's plan has simply been to hope the public is sick of Obama. And while many people are, what urgency does he give to us to go vote for him??
Beating a seated President is never easy, as a seemingly hated by everyone George W. Bush showed back in '04,, but you don't expect the rival party to basically send champagne to him for his re-election celebration a couple of months early.
I'm never one to rush time because tomorrow's never promised, and in 4 years i'll be closer to 40 than 30 lol,, but i have to say that the 2016 election season is already looking a lot more professional than what we're witnessing today.
Thanks 4 reading......Luke
