Anyone else feel like.....
Edited on Wed Dec-22-10 09:02 PM by Clio the Leo
...... you've been watching a movie with a group of people, one which YOU already know the ending of? Or perhaps you took a trip, got to your destination early and are just now seeing the rest of your family pull into the driveway?

I confess, there was a brief moment last weekend when I dare not SPEAK "DADT" lest I somehow jinx it ... and I'm relieved to see START pass and pleasantly surprised with how the 911 bill passed today ... but there is a broad sense of thankful "man was I wrong!".... that I'm not feeling. :)

Please, no one misunderstand me. I'm not trying to brag or bash .... but I have always felt that Barack Obama is one of the smartest and most empathetic guys in the room and because of that, I put more trust in him than I do the average bear. I've read "Audacity" more times than I can count (or listened to it rather) and I've yet to see him deviate much from the words in that book. Rarely do any of his words or actions surprise me.

I dont serve crow .... it's not polite.

I just wanted to commiserate with like minded folks. ;)

3. Yep, it was very harsh at one time
incorrectly characterizing Obama.

There has been justified celebration and a few, but not many, "I was wrong"s.
