He WAS My President
(Author’s note: Until President-Elect Trump take the oath of office, President Obama IS still my president.)
President Barack Obama was my president since January 2009.
However, he was not my CHOICE to be my president in 2008.
He was also not my CHOICE to be my president in 2012.
But he was elected and I sucked it up and dealt with 8 years of his presidency.
I did not riot in the streets, but cried myself to sleep on election day 2012 – wondering what would become of me in the next four years as I was in-between jobs. Democrats are not know for being friendly to businesses.
Hope and Change
While I was waiting to get my city taxes done a couple years ago, I had a conversation with a couple. The man was leaving for work at 7 a.m. and coming home at midnight. The woman was working the first shift at her job and they were both attemping to spend quality time with their child. They said
“needless to say, hope and change have not been good to us.”
“Hope and change have not good to me either.”
Being An Adult
If I can be adult enough to deal with 8 years of a man being president whom I did not elect, then why can’t everyone else?
