I'm Sick of Obama, So Sue Me

Call me bitter or whatever, but I'm sick of seeing Obama. I know I have at least 4 more years of seeing him as President, and thats not as much my problem. I'm sick of the fawning over him by the media, and the mass commercialization of his face.

How many times a day do I have to see long-winded commercials with Montel Williams trying to sell me commemorative coins with his face on them?

How many chain stores (like Walgreens) do I have to walk into with Obama t-shirts and hats?

How many magazine covers have to have him on the front? I even saw a dog magazine with him on it.

Every other story on the Trib does some puff piece on the Obama family - from them staying in a haunted hotel to the accessories Mrs. BO will wear to the inauguration.

And their countdown to his inauguration - so I know the exact moment he will take office.

And don't forget the commemorative plates. My house will be incomplete unless I have one of these apparently.

Its enough already. He's not even in office yet and I'm sick of seeing him. This is not the normal celebration around the election of a new president, its some sort of sick devotion to him. Did he win the election or American Idol?

I feel the same way, they treat him like he is the second coming. I actually think it is really dangerous in a Republic to have a leader worshiped. He should be serving the people, not the other way around. Excellent post.

I agree !! Enough already. What has he accomplished other than winning an election? This is absurd.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
