I just turned the tv on a minute ago and discovered that our president is holding a news conference. Now it is no secret that I did not want Barack Obama to be our president. I do not like his stance on just about EVERY issue there is and I am concerned that his policies will do way more harm to our country than anything; but that is beside the point. He is our president. He is the leader of the free world. He is in control of protecting a nation(just a note-that is really all he is supposed to be doing, not supporting, or funding, or ruling over but protecting but once again I digress). He is President of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA-the strongest, riches, most blessed country in the world. We as a country are in a huge mess. Our financial systems are failing us, our housing systems are failing, people around the world want to kill us, we are in the middle of a war. Needless to say these are not the best of times. President Obama has promise to solve all of our problems. He is the leader that we have and his decisions will affect us all. He is the Top Dog right now so I stopped to listen. Was there another crisis? Has something happened to our country? What was it that he had to tell us. He was taking questions from the journalists in the audience and this is what I heard....
Journalist(I believe it said he was from the wall street journal):"Mr President, What is your reaction to Alex Rodriguez admitting that he had taken steroids when he was with the Texas Rangers?"
IS HE SERIOUS!!!
THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. AND ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW IS HIS REACTION TO ANOTHER PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL PLAYER FINALLY ADMITTING HE USED DRUGS?? WHO GIVES A FLIP WHAT THE PRESIDENT THINKS ABOUT BASEBALL. DO NOT HOLD A NEWS CONFERENCE THAT IS ON EVERY SINGLE CHANNEL AND ASK THE PRESIDENT WHAT HE THINKS ABOUT SOME OVER-PRICED CELEBRITY BALL PLAYER AND THE DRUG HABIT THAT MOST OF AMERICA PROBABLY ALREADY ASSUMED HE HAD ANYWAY EVEN BEFORE HE FESSED UP. As John Stossel would say...GIVE ME A BREAK!!!
just a note-I am sure the entire news conference was not about A-rod but that was the question I heard and I did not stick around to hear the answer. It just disgusted me soooo much. The reason Mr Obama made it to the white house to begin with was in large part due to the journalists asking stupid, nonsense, who cares, it makes no difference in anything and tells us nothing about the man or his policies or his belief kinda questions during the election season.
It just makes me so sad for my country!
