The good news is...we kicked butt both days. Our funder thinks our programs kickin butt, and I met all of my new program leaders yesterday, so it's all good.
And sang along to bad 80s music for 7 hours in the car.
You're welcome. I know that'll be stuck in your head all night.
Onto the last political rehash for the year I promise.
As I said, I know this would have been more appropriate yesterday-but I was way too tired. Not only did I have to get up at the butt crack of dawn to go to Albany, but I was dumb enough to stay up way too late on Tuesday night to get the results of the election.
I'm so happy to say I was wrong about my predictions!
I'm not a huge Obama fan. But after listening to all the of debates, reading on both candidates platforms on each issues, I agreed with more of what Obama was saying than Romney.
I don't think Romney;s a bad person-I give him props. For being so darned privileged, he certainly wanted a rough job-the next 4 years would have been hard for either candidate, no doubt.
Oddly, I think we would have done well with Romney the first year he was in office. i think his economic policies and policies on immigration were much better than Obama's.
But...I think Obama will put us closer to where we want to be in 2016. I agree with his foreign policy, his social welfare, and pretty much the rest of his ideas.
Will it be easy? Nope. And I think he will force a strong opposition to the Republicans in congress.
Basically, the choice for Obama...was the lesser of the two evils.
I should have picked Gandalf.
Well, with the emotions subsiding (everyone I know was very opinionated on this one!), I hope face book will calm down a bit. That the lunchroom talks and gym treadmill time will center around something other than how someone is moving to another country if their candidate doesn't get elected.
Damn. (I apologize for the f bomb...this was too good.)
Facebook was littered with these gems yesterday. My least favorite:
Um....as a social worker in the inner city I can assure you...that's not true.
However, I know this has been beat to death, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one:
I sincerely hope Obama Llama can get us back on track. We need it.
