Anyone notice bloggers that are for Obama are angry this week? Quite a lot of them are saying (in summary) that "you are a fool if you don't see it the way I do". I don't know if they are all of a sudden more worried now that Sarah Palin has appeared? Are they worried the treatment of Palin will sway Obama voters her way? They seem to be doing a lot of tantrum throwing all of a sudden.
I won't stop reading any of the blogs I follow that may declare their love for Obama / throw a tantrum. I probably read them because they are funny, not because I'm looking for politcal guidance. But it does give me more insight into them, and that is always good.
But throwing a public tantrum and pretty much calling me a stupid redneck for not voting the same way as you? NOT GOING TO EARN OBAMA any votes!
I am not a Republican on all issues - far from it. But I am extremely against national healthcare (why is it my responsibility to pay to provide healthcare to everyone? I thought I was only responsible for the little people I birthed, but excuse me if I am wrong on that count), I am VERY against higher taxes (we fall into upper class because of income limits, but living in the DC area, are NOT WEALTHY because our area pretty much requires 2 incomes to survive). I am willing and always seek out other people's opinions in case there is an area where I am either mis-informed or don't have enough experience/knowledge in that area to make an informed decision (example: CecilyK and Julia single-handedly changed my view from pro-life to pro-choice) - but foot stomping is not the way to do it.
Ask my two year old - any request bundled with foot stomping gets no attention from me.
