Agh, I can’t get my log-in to work, and the reset link I get in the mail doesn’t work either.
Just wanted to say that last night was amazing, and wanted to contribute my own two cents:
First I want to say congratulations to Barack Obama, and I hope you can live up to the promises you’ve made. Even a cynical person like myself cannot help but be touched by your hopefulness and enthusiasm. Secondly, John McCain, your speech last night was classy and gracious, but you still have some work to do.
You owe the American people an apology, most of all your supporters. For the past 20 months, you’ve used every underhanded trick in the book to try to ensure your spot in the White House. You called Obama a terrorist, for working with people that were involved with several government committees, many of which you were involved in as well. When Obama spoke of “looking out for your fellow man,” you called him a socialist. You and your cohorts continuously bent his words, took his quotes out of context, and tried to paint him as a Socialist Muslim Terrorist who wants to tear down our industry.
You called him an elitist, when you are the one having large VIP parties, and getting donations from the large corporations. Your lies have spread, as shown in the voting last night, and many of your supporters fell victim to your fear mongering, to your willful encouragement of irrational hate.
For this you owe all of us an apology. You owe yourself an apology. I’m not sure what happened to you over the past decade, what changed you, but the tactics you used throughout this campaign have created even greater rifts between us, and encouraged widespread ignorance.
If you truly want to make this nation a better place, you need to stand up and take responsibility for your actions. Your speech last night was a good step, but you need to do more.
