OT: In my twilight years

In My Twilight Years
As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end. There will be a clear, cold morning whenthere isn't any "more. No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "Did you hear the one about....." This is true for marriages, family relationships, and, especially, old friendships. It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let every one of your family members and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heart-felt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life, so they can always say, "He was my friend; and I know where he stood." So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this.......I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, anti-woman, terrorist-excusing, narcissistic, scientific-and-economic moron Mormon who ran for President

I had little confidence in Obama and Romney.
I was for McCain until he chose Palin.
What I could not rationalize away was that if anything happened to him. she'd be in.
I voted for Obama simply because he seemed the lesser of the two evils.
He has not done great...but he has done better than what I actually expected. As a matter of fact, after he got Bin Laden who Bush ignored I have to admit I was a bit surprised.
As to National Health Care, I was surprised too...but not in a good way.
I guess there were a few million who will benefit from it...good for them.
BTW: Obama is not a Muslim nor is Romney a Mormon.
Can you say the word "politician" ?
That's what their religion is...politics.

Per philo :

Also, in retrospect, his letting himself be stuck with such a candidate reflected poorly on both his judgment and ability to assign tasks and accountability. My understanding is that in the post-mortems, there was finger-pointing to the effect of "Well, I thought *he* was supposed to be vetting her...."

Prior to the election I read a very good article on the vetting process. I forgot where ...but I think it was in the New Yorker. At any rate I expected that it would be quite biased against him. It was a very good assessment actually and before one got to really know Palin, it initially looked like a good idea. I thought so myself until she opened her mouth.
I finally could not rationalize her away so I became a tepid Obama supporter.
The bottom line was that she had been vetted and all that was expected from McCain was a rubber stamp. That is exactly what happened. He really did only talk to her for a few minutes.
I was on the newsgroups arguing with people and referred them to the article and no one read it. The typical comment was that it was a long story and "I'm not going to read all that."
A twenty minute read which would have a profound effect on the next four years and beyond.
When I got my job repairing industrial batteries 39 years ago...I spent close to two hours with the owner of the company.
Like I said. I fixed batteries and I got more of an interview than McCain gave Palin.
I suppose that alone was enough to question McCain's ability to run the country.
Romney was sunk by his Freudian slip (47%)
so guess who was left?
Way too late now.

What part of burdensome regulation, uneven enforcement, targeting conservatives, and subverting the Constitution, gutting the military, federalizing industry, shutting down energy production, and promoting communist planks did you think was OK?

so much like conservatives to censor free speech...so I've fixed your error

So much like liberals to scream "censorship" over something that is anything but. You need to get a dictionary and look up the definition of the word. Nobody is attempting to stop you from writing anything. Nobody tried to censor your free speech. You need to understand that, just as you are free to write whatever crap you want to write, TDD and I are equally free to decide not to repeat it. And that's not censorship. It would be censorship if we attempted to prevent you from writing it, or from publishing and distributing it once written. You fail to comprehend that your exercise of your right to free speech does NOT extend to compelling others to distribute it, and when they decline to do so, you are NOT begin censored.

there is a significant difference between deciding not to repeat (which would have been accomplished by not responding to it) and replying to it but deleting what was posted
but limbaughnistas are cowards
