I watched the Daily Show where Jon Stewart had Barack Obama on, and it was interesting. Two things:
1. Jon did a good job of pushing the President about issues that people want to talk about. It certainly frustrated the President to a degree, but it did bring up good points with both men. And it was good to see Obama not back down and cower like a lot of the Democrat senators whose jobs are up for grabs next week. Really, politicians on both sides are acting like a lot of hooting, childish and chicken hooting dickholes. Like Rand Paul, whose idiotic cronies stomp on ladies’ heads and refuse to seriously apologize for being dickholes.
2. Neo-Conservatives who keep squawking in my ear about Obama always reading from a tele-prompter to “sound intelligent” can now shut their God damn pie-holes and realize they are a bunch of dumb assholes who have absolutely no idea what the fuck they are talking about.
Before I even read my daily dose of blogs* tomorrow, I just want to re-iterate that yes, I realize he didn’t cover all your issues. For example, I totally agree that torture, kidnapping people and secret prisons are problems this administration, generation and Congress have to fix. However, focusing exclusively on this one issue and bashing it over the head repeatedly when we have critical internal problems that we still haven’t fixed (don’t ask, don’t tell for one) just makes me roll my eyeballs and ignore you. And those internal issues should be easy. But we can barely solve economic and social problems right now, let alone stop a runaway train like unlawful imprisonment and torture that was set loose 8 years ago by another administration that still has a giant influence in the Executive branch through pundits and staff.
In short, let’s talk about positives more than the negatives, and work together to solve the issues we immediately have control of, and then we can fight the bigger fights. I’m with you, but I can only stand to listen to people lament about their personally charged issues (your biggest fears) for so long before I start making fun of you behind your back.
