Last night I mentioned to Boss that I wanted to write a post articulating all my grumbles about people in this country wanting to have their cake and eat it too. After making bad decisions about home loans, people want to be bailed out and banks want to be bailed out. They chose the road to the high profit/cheap payment up front knowing full well that there was a risk involved, but when the risk comes into true play they cry foul and want the government to "save" them from themselves. Frankly, it makes me a little bit angry.
It reminds me, I told Boss, of the democratic delegate situation in Michigan and Florida. Those states violated party rules specifically calculating the increased impact having an early spotlight in the race would offer them. They decided rules couldn't hold them back from grubbing up all the weight they could in choosing the next president. That was their choice. But NOW, of course, it's all changed. There are daily sermons on how every voice needs to be heard, every vote counted, how it would be tragic NOT to count their votes that they freely gave up through their deliberate grab for early influence. Again, it makes me angry.
While I was supporting Romney during the primary I saw some clips from Glenn Beck that were pretty fair minded. I never knew anything about him before that. Today sealed the deal of my fanhood when I read his column that voices essentially my exact opinion here, including precisely these two examples. So, my post can be much shorter. Just read his.
