Yesterday, while we were at breakfast at the hotel on the last day of our vacation there were several business men at another table complaining this or that about President Obama. They were talking about things that were reported on Fox News about him. It seemed they can’t wait until he is out of office.
My wife being more of a political person than me (go figure) started “talking” to me about all the good things that have happened under the Obama administration. She signed to me without voicing it what was going on so I joined in.
“If you want to live like a Republican you must vote like a Democratic. I said that when Mr. Bush became president he came into office with a stock market at flourishing well above the 10,000 mark and left eight years later with it was barely above 8,000 and now that Obama has been in office a little over four years it has almost doubled from what it was on that fateful day of January 20, 2009. The stock market is booming because the real business men know that our economy will soon be flourishing again as it was during the Clinton years and almost all Democratic administration before that. “If you want to live like a Republican you must vote like a Democrat”. (For all you doubters out there I put a few graphs related to this subject at the end of this post). I continued with A recent report found that if you get your news totally from Fox News you are actually less informed than those who do not listen or read any news at all. In other words, Rupert Murdock’s version of the world has little or no reality to what actually is.
It wasn’t long before the table of business men, or at least I suppose they were, became suddenly quiet and started quickly vacating the restaurant. I guess they had heard enough from us “liberal freaks”. We have been known to do this before while on vacation. Its kind of fun to rattle a few chains once in a while. :)
