The popular vote for president is a farce that reached its peak in 2008. There is not much difference between presidents except for their rhetoric and the expectations we place on them.
Ninety-nine percent of the time our expectations are completely out of sync with what a president can do and actually does. Reagan was not the anti-Christ. George W. Bush did not cause the economy to decline (another nonsensical lie by tree hugging communists and progressives); and Obama is not Moses (example of black America’s continual need for a Messiah), will not take away our guns (a story made up by gun-toting rednecks and bigots), and can’t save the economy because quite frankly he and his sorry advisors don’t know what an economy or a republic is. Most presidents don’t know, and they aren’t held accountable because we don’t know ourselves (payback for cutting all those economics classes).
It’s more fun to spew vitriol (ala MSNBC and FOX, media whores galore) and stay ignorant. It satisfies a need for comfort and certainty based on nonsense, no evidence, and paranoia….
