Obama is now officially President. I still can't believe this. It seems like 8 long years I've been in a state of perpetual outrage at the very thought that somewhere in the world, troops were dying for a continuously changing cause, and our President was on the verge of saying something stupid. And today, that just might sort of, almost change. Who knows, we might also have less of a bumbling/wantonly oppressive legislature for the next couple of years. Maybe, just maybe, I might finally be proud of this country. Maybe our economy won't go completely down the crapper. Maybe this war will finally start dying down a little. Maybe I will finally stop having contempt for government officials and policy since they are technically in agreement with me now, due to having "Democrat" stamped on their ass. And maybe we won't charge into random countries out of a combination of vengeful bloodlust and paranoia. I can always hope. But, we're probably still doomed. So at least I can find solace in that.
George Bush Presidency: 2001-2009.
It will be missed.
