Local still surprised by election

Dear Editor,

Well, it is late Nov. 2012 and I am still suffering from the shock of Nov. 6.

I guess I just have to admit that anyone aspiring to political office should definitely ask for my opinion and then immediately run in the opposite direction.  After Earl Long, “Cousin Dud” and a few others along the way, I thought that my crystal ball had been fixed when it showed “no chance” for a Clinton second term. Wrong again!

This time, with so much negative information going around, it seemed like a sure thing. I never heard a kind word about BO in all the first four years.  Even the liberal media seemed strained and sometimes stretched the truth to find a compliment, and yet there are 52 percent of the voting population: blacks, Hispanics, unions, welfare recipients and some semi and pseudo educated would not be denied.

I might not be around by 2016 to see the swarm of locusts in America who will carry their great leader in a winged chariot and enthrone him in our White House.  Just as well if I do miss out.  I do not want to see my wife and daughters wearing aigabs and abayas and I don’t know how they could ever learn to walk a respectful two steps behind their men!
