I’ve been waiting 4 years to do this. I’m hoping for the best but expecting the worst, which is my natural defense mechanism.
Let me say up front what I’m about to type for sure comes from a position of privilege. There are groups of people that are so under threat that they have never been in a place where they could just not think about “politics”.
That said, I’m tired of thinking about the President of the United States every day. I’m tired of worrying about what marginalized group he has decided to attack that day. I’m tired of reading about what environmental regulation he has decided to roll back in the name of business without any evidence given that would show this deregulation would help anyone other than shareholders of the polluting company that lobbied for this.
I’m tired of reading his bumbling tweets fed from whatever issue he saw on Fox News that morning. I’m tired hearing about whatever racist chant that happened at on of his “rallies”. I’m tired of him claiming to be the most Christian and least racist person ever, while doing the opposite. I’m just tired man.
Give me a boring President. Somebody that will just do what is best for the people of this country without making it a grudge against somebody else. Give me somebody that will do the right thing.
We really shouldn’t have to worry about the President this much. We should always keep an eye on them, yep, but for the most part they are there to “make sure that all U.S. laws are carried out and that the federal government is run effectively.” Just be a typical boss that hires the right people based on real merit and lets those people do what they do best. And get out of the way.
I want a boring President. Actually, I’d like a competent one.
