Now we're all fucked anyway.
This is all very true.

absolutely spot on, seriously...I never hated obama throughout the entire election, he was a left winger and, at the time, it seemed like he would stick by his principles. I didn't persecute him for having different ideas than me. What I was pulling my hair out over was the blind love affair that the media had with him. Everyone was caught up with the "hope" message and no one was questioning him about the issues. To top it off, mccain's campaign was nothing short of an embarrassment. And yes, now we're all screwed
