So I managed to miss the whole campaign season on my blog which was originally supposed to be a politics only blog but has morphed more into a "whatever I want to post about" blog. How did this happen?
Well I moved into a new place in March, one of my best friends got married in June, work was pretty busy around July. Went on a short vacation with family in August, suffered a few personal problems when I got back that I won't discuss here. And then of course Borderlands 2, then Black Ops 2 came out so I was gaming a lot. OK, enough about me and now about the election.
This was one of the dirtiest most hateful elections I have ever seen. Both sides sought to demonize the other side based on half-truths and sometimes straight out lies. There was even a debate where Romney tersely talked over the president (and basically told him to shut up) while trying to drive home a point. This is the President of the US! Show him some respect atleast!
With all that being said I was on the fence about who to vote for. I slowly started to believe in Romney. The economy is still bad, maybe a businessman would be better at running the country. Then that whole incident in Libya with our diplomat being killed. I ended up getting less and less enthusiastic about voting for Obama and even looked at a few third party candidates that I might vote for. Ultimately, I did still end up voting for Obama. Time will tell if he and Congress can get their shit together and fix this country. I am hoping that we don't go over this "fiscal cliff" in January and that they can come to a deal. Both sides most compromise for the good of this country. God bless the USA.
