I’m very confused and disappointed by the hateful response some people have to President Bush. Just because you don’t like him or agree with things he’s done doesn’t mean you have to be crude and nasty.
Although I wound up voting for McCain in the end, this was a tough call for me this year. It’s the first time I wasn’t able to make up my mind many months before the election. That says something, although I admit I’m not sure what.
While I certainly understand the passion people can have, especially for someone as engaging as Mr. Obama, I don’t get the kind of hate that flows in the other direction. It’s shameful, and it makes me sad to have to listen to it from so many people I otherwise like and admire.
All that aside, congratulations to President-Elect Obama. Good job, and good luck, sir.
