My reaction is an impersantion (sp?) of that kid from home alone.

what country?
When life throws you lemons...
Keep them, cause they are free

A journey of a thousand miles begin with a step...
On a gas pedal.

He who laugh last...
Is the slowest!

I had a tough time deciding who to vote for, but I ended up voting for Obama. I agree with him on pretty much all the social issues, but I'm less confident about his economic policies. Then again, I wasn't that confident in Romney's economic policies either. The thing is, as much as each part likes to claim it has a plan to fix the economy, the economy is freaking complicated; no one fully understands it, or knows a sure fire way to fix it, not even the economists. If it were that simple and straightforward, it wouldn't be such a controversial issue. And the president really doesn't have as much control over it as people tend to think.

So yeah, I voted for Obama. My reaction was... not thrilled or disappointed. Just kind, okay, so he's still our president. I just hope he does a good job. If Romney had won, I would be wishing him the best too. I figure, once a president has been elected, you might as well support the guy (or girl, hopefully, one day) and hope they do a good job. Doesn't mean you can't criticize the president, of course, but I think bashing him/her just for the sake of it is kinda pointless.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents.
