On Tuesday I am going vote once again for Barack Obama.
He’s one of the rare few who have become more than a President, a true Commander in Chief.
Did he magically solve all our problems and reach across the aisle to convert recalcitrant foes to allies? No, he did not.
Did he act decisively and wisely to stave off what could easily have been the 2nd Great Depression, exercise a calm and firm hand in the face of a host of foreign policy challenges, and accomplish far more than you would expect given an opposition who decided that the purity of their party was more important than the health of our nation. Yes he did*.
We’re standing at the the doorstep of the future and more than rising water and raging weather are coming to our door. I for one want a proven and tested leader who has demonstrated honesty on a constant vision rather than an opportunistic and shadowy operator who stands wherever the people he’s talking to want him to stand.
*For those who feel that he’s done nothing, I give you whatthefuckhasobamadonesofar.com.
