Email-less President

As a former civil servant employed by the federal government, and as a Computer Programmer/Analyst at that, I can fully understand the complexity behind taking Obama’s BlackBerry away when he becomes a permanent fixture in the Oval office.  Presidents just can’t be like the rest of us who freely submit messages across the digital world.   But man, whoa.  Major email withdrawal.  Another reason why this chick will not be running for President of the United States any time in the near future.  Obama can have that email-less job, thanks very much.

Give me smartphone, or give me death!

Election Aftermath

Just when I think life is back to normal and all is groovy again, well, the United States of America elects a new President, Barack Obama.  I couldn’t be more thrilled about this news, meaning I can’t seem to keep my eyes off of that man on CNN, the local news and all over the newspapers.  Normally after so much of looking at one single person in the media 24/7, I’m all:

Noooooo!  If I have to see that face or hear that person’s name one more time, I’m going to run screaming down the street like an absolute crazy person!

But not this time.  Not with Obama.  I’m so extremely curious as to how this man can continue to pull off the whole well-spoken, stern and put-together presence in front of the paparazzi-like media that I can’t seem to take my eyes off it all.  It’s like I’m just waiting to see just one small stumble or fissure in what seems to be such a perfect façade.  And I’m left wondering if Obama is the real deal that we’ve all been waiting for… ?  Let’s hope.

In the mean time, McCain stepped away graciously and wasted no time in doing so.  Now that’s class.  The USA couldn’t have found 2 more qualified candidates to apply for the job in leading our nation, and now I just pray that the best one will be filling those presidential shoes.  Not only are we ready for change, but we’re ready for a big clean-up of the big huge mess Bush is leaving in his wake.  Talk about a big job there.

Bring it on, Obama!  Things cannot get any worse, that’s all I know.  God help us all.

Here We Go Again

Have any of you witnessed the flub-ups by our presidential candidates lately on the news? I’m amazed at how a certain running mate can just stand by clapping and smiling while a certain person makes a complete fool of oneself in front of the media, the group who broadcasts it all on CNN or Headline News for those of us Joe Six Packs or Hockey Moms to witness firsthand.

Hello, McFly? Is anyone in there??? All I know is that voting for someone with a brain that doesn’t seem to coordinate with the mouth is not such a good idea.

And why aren’t the candidates coming right out with a stance on abortion? Because CNN cut that topic off immediately when a voter asked McCain. Hmmm…. why is this such a big conspiracy anyway? Let me tell you, there are a HUGE number of Catholic Sisters who are extremely interested, as well as Catholic Moms & Dads. Will they ever come out with it?
