The DNC Recap…

Here at And This Is My America, we like to stray away from the daily ups and downs of the political world as we aren’t necessarily the proper forum for such an intensive topic.

However, it is definitely important to give a brief recap of all things current and influential in America

This past week we witnessed Barack Obama and the rest of the Democratic Party kick off the last stretch so to speak at their bid at a seat in the White House.

Hillary spoke

Joe Biden spoke

Al Gore spoke

Bill Clinton spoke

And most importantly, Obama accepted the nomination with a rousing speech that definitely had the makings of being granted entrance into the cannon of prime time historical moments in American history…

As the first African American to accept a major party nomination, the Republican machine is desperately trying to divide and conquer if you will, the Democratic Party while playing on the fears of a scared, broke, race conscious country that is still trying to decide whether they can accept a President with a last name that rhymes with Osama…

McCain’s desire to lead this nation is predicated on some old sick fucks delusional obsession with one day bringing Bin Laden’s head to Capitol Hill on a stick. While I am not naive enough to think Obama winning in November will automatically bring the economic prosperity and overall stability we saw in the 90s, I do believe it will be a big statement maker for a nation, that 50 years ago couldn’t handle sharing a water fountain with someone who had a darker shade of skin.

To be honest, I am scared of what another term with a Republican leader will bring. Especially one who is 72 and not too familiar with the Internet or doesn’t remember how many homes he owns. I’m just not sure if thats what we need after two terms with a half retarded, power hungry elitist. Thats all for now, we will be sure to try to keep you up to date with this current election, while leaving the dense details to the professionals at CNN and…
