SideLines: Picking a president
I don’t normally write about politics for the simple reason I don’t know that much about it. That should become pretty evident in the next few paragraphs.
In case you haven’t heard, there’s an election Nov. 6. Barack Obama, a Democrat, is running for re-election as President of the United States against Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
As a youth, I was intrigued by elections. Today, in middle age, they totally turn me off: all the negativity, the truth twisting, the endless commercials. I read that both candidates could spend a billion dollars on their campaigns. Imagine how many meals Feed’em Soup could serve with that much money, or how many homeless people Hope Haven could help, or how that could benefit our schools.
