Let me first say that while I don't normally talk politics on my blog as I don't want to alienate anyone who doesn't share my political views (unless your views are really f'd up...then I don't care. Ahem, I digress), I am today.
Just a bit anyway because I can hardly contain my excitement.
Yes, I am an Obama supporter. I truly believe he can heal our ailing country. In fact, I was a fan prior to him throwing his hat into the presidential race. I respect him as an individual for his honesty, the life he's led, the odds he's risen above , his family values. There are so many things I could go on and on but I won't. You get the point.
That said as we all waited in my living room anxiously , nervously listening for those all too important states that we desperately hoped would turn blue we asked the kids briefly "Who do you want to be president ?"
Of course we knew they really didn't have any earthly idea of who the candidates really were and what they stood for but we asked simply for our own amusement expecting them to parrot the decision they'd heard from us.
"Barack Obama" my daughter J says.
"You know who I want to win ?" my son B says wide-eyed and full of excitement
"Who's that ?" we all asked in unison
Expecting to once again hear Barack Obama you can imagine the laughter that errupted when he said Chris Brown
Out of the mouths of babes...
