Well, today is my day and this is my last post on here.
Hillary is a lost cause, obviously. However, Bill and Hillary will always have my utmost respect and affection - they have earned it. Not so for Obama.
Let's be clear: The Clintons are not perfect people. But they have been singly and severally investigated, depositioned, harangued, harassed, hounded, dissected, analyzed, examined and cross-examined, and yelled at for hours on a daily basis by rabid assholes like Limbaugh et al. Everything is there for the world to see. Not so for Obama.
I didn't spill my blood on foreign soil (5 more minutes and I would have gone into the light) to join any kind of group-think.
Patriotism is very important to me, but the war on terror is bullshit. Iraq is a colossal shithole. The whole damn Department of Homeland Security is a gargantuan pile of bullshit. For that reason, I will not vote for the Old Coot. But he has my greatest thanks and respect - especially on this day.
At any rate, I may or may not vote in November. I just don't vote for somebody I neither like nor respect.
