It's only August, and I'm already sick of hearing conservatives, republicans, teabaggers, etc., gloat about how they're going to take control of Congress in November and essentially destroy Obama's political career. And although they'll never say it outright, they're basically saying that all of us stupid black people and naive white people who went out and voted for Obama in 2008 are either too dumb or too lazy to show up at the polls in November, so they might as well go ahead and break out the champagne now. On one hand, it makes me mad, but on the other hand, I know they have a point. Our people have a history of thinking that our vote doesn't count or of not being the most politically aware especially in a non-presidential election year. Most of us vote for president, then sit back on our behinds for four years, and then wonder why nothing changed. You would think Obama's win would have changed some of that mindset. I mean let's be real, yes, whites voted for him, but if it wasn't for us, he wouldn't have won either. The other side understands that all politics is local. Why don't we? For everyone who thinks Obama isn't doing enough for us think about this, would you rather have a Congress that Obama can pass legislation through and at least have a chance of finishing what he started, or would you rather it change hands, and pretty much GUARANTEE Obama will be a lame duck for the next two years? If that happens, you can forget all of that "black agenda" talk, cause it ain't gonna happen. So, what about you? Are you voting in November? Why or why not?
