I just don't get it. Seriously. Where did this man come from? How did we end up with a president who seems to be able to surround himself with the dregs of political life and conservatives are the only ones who notice? I know Obama's numbers are falling, and thank God Pelosi and Reid are losing popularity too. But there are still enough people out there who aren't worried about what is happening in this country. And it's not because they necessarily drank the Obama Kool-aid.
Right now in my life, this country and it's state of affairs is way high on my priority list. Probably higher than is good for my blood pressure. If everybody was thinking about politics as much as I am they either better be getting paid for it, or they are well on their way to being insane. But they're not.
Nobody at work seems to be thinking about it. At my job anyway. I work for a national - actually an international company, it's huge! I talk to people all day but as far as co-workers are concerned, they seem to have some kind of attitude that says "yeah well the stimulus is a joke and I don't know about healthcare, but hell, what's the worse that can happen?"
THAT makes me crazy. I know it's a bad idea to talk politics at work but I see more apathy than I am comfortable with. And I am afraid that the apathy is more widespread than we think. Too many people still are not informed and when they hear conservatives yelling to be heard - they just think we're nuts.
Don't they hear the lies? When they watch President Obama give a speech, do they hear the inconsistencies? Don't they notice the socialist leanings, the push - push - pushing to get things passed before people have a chance to make sense of it? Do they consider the fact that the government is not disputing any of the facts Glenn Beck is coming out with on his radio and TV shows? No. Many people think Glenn Beck is a nutwad of enormous proportions. Sad. But the government is not saying he is wrong.
I do not believe he is who he tries to appear to be.
