74. I think we all some the same thing in the Obamas, especially Michelle...
a discontent with our country, an anger that overrides the pride we shall all have for the great things our country still provides and represents.

When Obama speaks it's almost like he has a difficult task to do and there's nothing good about it, but, darn it, he's going to do it. You know what, he's damn lucky to have been educated in private institutions - expensive one's at that - and to be able to raise a family and run for public office. He's not doing us a favor, we're entrusting him with a job and if he gets it he'll be paid handsomely.

And Michelle presents an anger that I cannot share. My family and I have worked hard for everything we've got and would do so again.

Why do we need to awaken the African Americans? Have they not been participating in elections?

I'm going to stop now. I'm pretty angry about last night and how it's being spun today.
