I have been sporadically disgruntled by life in these United States over the past four years. I have been impatient and battle fatigued. Continued corporate coddling and the disdain of the upper echelons in those same subsidized industries goads me nearly into apoplexy. Happy endings do not abound but justice prevails, plodding along, one foot after the other.
I should have known better than to fall so hard for the Obama vision of peace and equality for all. He is after all, just a man. There have been disappointments. I’ve had terrible temper tantrums in which I sought to disappoint him in the same way he disappointed me. I accused him of selling us out. He hasn’t, he’s the same as he always was- logical, true to his convictions, remaining calm in chaos, dignified and balanced.
President Obama believes in women’s equality, walking beside men, not behind them. The contrast between him and the fundamentalist fringe of the Republican right is breathtaking.
If I disagreed with everything else the man has done, I would support him because he supports a woman’s sovereignty over her own body.
