Hey, America! Are we really this stupid? Think back to 2008. It was going to be a historical election, regardless. Either a black man or a woman was going to be president: There was no chance that a Republican was going to be elected president.
Fast-forward to 2012. We just re-elected a president based not on his record of debt, deficit, and Benghazi, but because he is likable, charismatic, and a good speaker. To paraphrase Mrs. Obama: I have never been more ashamed of my country. I am disappointed, but I'll live with it.
I truly believe that Romney was the answer to our economic woes. I shudder to think what the next four years will bring. To quote Pogo: I have seen the enemy and he is us.
Collectively I thought we were smarter than this. America is still the best and greatest country on Earth. Let's hope she remains so.
