We’ve all seen the you tube video, right?  The one with that poor lady who took her kids to an Obama rally and was so happy to think that Obama will keep her secure financially.  She tells how now she won’t have to worry about paying her mortgage or putting gas in her car.  It’s all taken care of now!  Oh, boy!  President Obama saves the world!  Just like he promised!  Whoohoo!  We are all getting free stuff!  Hooray!

The day after, the day after the election, not the day after ( I was too depressed and fightened and had been up until 5 AM and not because I was celebrating either!)  I went in to work and commented that I really shouldn’t be there.  I should have stayed home.  After all, my free crap might come and I might miss it or something.  Is it coming Fed Ex?  UPS?  Do I have to sign for it?  What if it comes and I’m not there?  Is Obama himself stopping by, in person, like when he visited Joe the plumber, to deliver it?  Will Obama or (God forbid) MEchelle  copy Santa (like they copy everyone else) and come down the chimney (if I had a chimney) with all my stuff?  I surely want to make sure I get everything that was promised to me by Obama.  We all know he keeps his promises, right?

Does anyone have all the particulars on the stuff?  Do we get to specify what color?  If it’s a car, do I get to choose the color, heated seats, cruise control, AC, leather seats, etc.?  Will they call us to set up delivery, or is it a surprise?  Wow.  Just like with all that is Obama, we know so little of the details!  The good news is that after days of sitting at work and wondering if I might miss my free stuff while I was away, I realized there was nothing to worry about.  Duh!  We have to wait until after Inauguration Day!  Of course.  Silly me.  I’ll make sure to take off of work from 1/21/09 on.  Don’t worry.  1/20/09 is for celebrating so we can be sure there will be no free stuff that day!  After all, it’s historic!

I am very excited about having a Unicorn.  I’ve been wondering if I can afford to feed it, but then my coworker pointed out to me that of course a lifetime supply of magical unicorn food will come with it.  Yet another coworker informed us that Unicorns don’t need food being that they’re magical and all.  Oh, of course.  What are we thinking?  This is going to be so exciting!  I will have a Unicorn and I won’t have to work anymore!  At first, I thought, well maybe I should work part time so I can still get the benefits.  You gotta have health insurance!  Well, once again, I am having trouble adjusting to reality.  Obama is giving us all free health care!  Whoo hoo!  I really need to focus on this new reality.  It’s going to be like Christmas all over again!

The Unicorn will be cool and all, but maybe I should write to Obama first.  I am thinking that maybe I’d be better served if I can trade in the Unicorn for a private jet.  That would be cool and probably more helpful for me.  I think I’m open to the new car.   Plus, I’ll have to make sure Obama knows that not only would I like having my mortgage paid off, I prefer a new, more spacious house!

I am going to send a letter to Obama, just to get it right.  Obama may be the world’s savior, but I don’t know if he can read minds.  Here’s what I need to let him know:

Dear President Soetoro,

Can I call you Barry?  Well, Barry, I am writing to inquire the details of the soon to arrive free crap I’ve been waiting for.  First off, the Unicorn.  That is a really great gift and I hope you won’t find me to seem ungrateful, but I would rather have a personal jet with a pilot at my beckon call.  There are places I have to go and people I need to see.  Now, if it’s possible to get a private jet and a unicorn I could go for that.  Either way, throw in the jet!  I want everything cool that I am entitled to, just like you and Caroline Kennedy get.  I’m open to a Senate seat, too, just to let you know.  I guess you only have so many of those so it must be first come, first serve on that one!  I sure do hope mine is the first request.  Can I also decide who I’ll replace in the Senate?  If Al Franken wins Minnesota, I’ll take his seat.  I guess I wouldn’t mind being President either.  That personal jet plane would come with that automatically!  Can I just have your seat in the Oval office instead of the senate seat?  If so, give the Franken seat to Norm Coleman please.  I guess Franken is in the lead as of today.  Another thing I hope you can give me is for my vote to count for something.  It used to, or so I thought, but no longer seems to matter.  I want it to matter again.  My next wish isn’t just for me, it’s for all Americans.  Can you make sure to give them the gift or intelligence and common sense?  I sure don’t want to see them be as uninformed as they were in this election, ever agian!  No way!  You know, now that I think about it, can you give Hillary the Presidency, instead of me?  She would be fabulous!  You know what else I want, Barry?  If I have to have you as President, can you throw MEchelle out on the front lawn of the whitehouse, with all of her bags packed?  I would enjoy that tremendously!  I really do want a new car.  If you can swing it, I’d like to have 2.  That way I can drive a cool sportcar, but still have the other vehicle for driving the kids around town.  I’m realizing that not too many of these things I’ve asked for cost money, unless you can pay to play for that Senate seat!  Maybe just give me a swiss bank account and keep the deposits flowing.  That would save you alot of grief if all Americans just go get their free stuff themselves.  It would stimulate the  economy, too!  Is that your economic plan?  Well, that is just pure genious, Barry!  Sadly, I have to request a new boyfriend, too.  Mine got on the hopey-changey bus and I haven’t seen or spoken to him since!  Well, Barry, here’s my list in a nutshell:

New House

New Car

A vote that counts

Presidency of the United States (or a lowly senate seat)

Hillary as President (If that is confusing for you, just give POTUS to me, I’ll make Hillary VP and then I’ll step down)

Intelligence for all Americans

Common sense for all Americans

Mechelle out on her ass

New boyfriend ( a PUMA voter to be specific)

private jet (or Air Force One)

Unlimited Swiss Bank Account


Clarification on the details of the free crap. 

That last one is just so I don’t screw this up.  I’ve never had access to unlimited free stuff from my Government before so I’m not really sure what to do.  If this is your economic plan, to have all Americans use their unlimited bank account to stimulate the economy, I can do that, but I’m not really sure where to go get my free Unicorn!  Let me know.  Thanks!

P. S.  As I need more stuff, I’ll send a new list and just as soon as my Unicorn arrives, I’ll admit that I was wrong about you!

With Love,

I’ve written other posts to tell about being the girlfriend of an Obama supporter.  This has been one of the worst experiences of my life.  This past week, we finally ended the relationship, completely.  I know I am not alone in losing a very important person from my life.  I know that many people are struggling with their political views no longer coinciding with that of friends, family, lovers, and I certainly hope that couples have not divorced over this God awful election from hell.

I know that no one probably cares.  I guess I just wanted to write it as a final acceptance of it.  Really things have all gone down hill since the Democratic convention.  More specifically, when Hillary Clinton gave her speech that we needed to support Barack Obama.  Things were really pretty good until that day.  At that point my boyfriend really thought I’d come around, because Hillary told me to.  Well, I didn’t.  We struggled through the months to the general election.  I thought I would be so glad the day had finally come.  Even with my great disbelief of Obama actually being elected, I had the thought, well, that is probably the best for my relationship.  I assumed that if McCain had won, we would break up, but if Obama won, I would be forgiven.  As with many things this year, I was wrong.  We broke up anyway.  There was no explaining to him that it was more than my being bitter about Hillary.  Funny thing is I am not even sure I like or respect Hillary anymore.  He gave me 1 week from the election to “be over it” and I wasn’t so I was only greeted with disgust after that.  Yes, I know.  I am better off.  If there were only a disgruntled democrat dating site to find a like minded person!

Anyway, forgive me for my online swan song.  I had to do it.  If you want to share your sad relationship destroyed by the great uniter story, be my guest.  Any and all comments welcome, except Obots.  There was one I was willing to tolerate and he became intolerable so the rest of you?  You don’t stand a chance.

This election year sucks!  The love of my life is an Obama supporter.  He has never been strong for Obama.  He was happy with whoever became the nominee, Clinton or Obama.  Earlier this year he thought that Clinton could not win because she was known to be a bitch and had made a lot of enemies.  He thought Obama would win easily due to his popularity.

For reasons I won’t go into here, we had been apart for a few months early in the year and reunited in March.  It was after our state caucus and so we knew we were not on the same side politically, but did not know how bad it would get after Hillary was out.  I wish we had been together in January and February.  I think I could have told him all I knew about Obama and why I’ll never vote for him.  I did not say much because our caucus was passed and there was nothing to be done, I thought.  Plus, I could not see that I would get my man to write letters and emails, etc.  Anyway, now we are at this horrible place of non understanding.  When I speak to him, I do not try to change his vote, as much as I’d like to.  I am just trying to get him to understand my discomfort with many things Obama.  He cannot understand it.  I listen to him and why he thinks  has to win.  I do not try to change his vote.  I just agree with him on what I can, disagree on what I disagree with, and hold my breath until November.  The problem with his reasons to vote for Obama is that blind faith and false image that I know is not there.  He has trouble imagining how I would vote for a republican after the past 8 years and why, even if I hate Obama, I wouldn’t choose the democrat VP just in case something happened to Obama.  I have trouble understanding how he cannot see the con being played.  He cannot see that he is being lied to and he cannot see that Obama is a phoney!

The question of the last legs of this election is, how do we talk to Obots?  What is the best way?  Early on I didn’t say much because I was learning what Obama was all about and couldn’t prove too much and really thought it would all come out in the media.  Well, we all know how that went!  So what to do now?  Just continue to disagree and hope enough people vote McCain so that it is a landslide victory?  That could happen because I know very few people who are voting for Obama.  Most are voting McCain and a few are staying home.  Do I give him the onslaught of newspaper and magazine articles and make him mad?  Do we still wait for the media?  will October make it all clear?  Should I just wait until November 5th and then see what happens?  We have seriously almost broken up over this election!  That is just retarded, I know, and so we keep going while at odds.  I truly do not know how to proceed!

What I do know is that come November 5th, one of us is going to be very unhappy.  I have already promised myself that if it is the worst case scenario (I can’t even bring myself to write it, but you know) that I will not blame him for a McCain loss.  I have informed him that I will only accept blame from him if Obama loses by one vote!

What helps is that a few weeks ago my boyfriend informed me that I was right and that Hillary was the more electable candidate.  He doesn’t now think Obama can win.  Phew!  At least he is preparing himself!  I do feel bad though for all the obots who are just following that fantasy image they see and who think the dems are unbeatable after Bush.  I do hope that somehow, someway, someday everyone will find out the truth about Obama.  Then I hope my relationship can quickly get back to normal after this horrible election year!
