I didn't serve up shit. I didn't like Bush but I realize that a President only has so much time to **** things up. Even though he sent me to a war I didn't agree with, I kept my mouth shut and did my goddamn job, knowing that it be over at some point. I didn't let it consume my life. When it came time to vote, I voted against him. Pretty standard fare.
My main issues with Obama stem from the fact that there hasn't been a single meaningful reform or banker jailed from the financial crisis. I probably would have been upset about how long it took to draw down in Iraq and Afghanistan had I not gone there and seen the crazy amount of resources and personnel that had to be removed.
He isn't perfect but I realize that all this stuff about him creating a moocher class, destroying our health care, etc etc is just garbage.
I am seriously looking forward to the reforms the Republican Party comes up with for 2016. If they can ditch putting forth the policies of the religious right in their party platform I'll consider their candidate. Until then they can suck a dick.
