Mr. Obama was a black man who worked his way up out of poverty. Whether people want to admit it we are almost our of debt from the horrible experience of the "downturn" under another privileged white male President. Did we not learn out lesson? O guess not - our biases won.
I am afraid that going back to when America was "great" means back when discrimination against sex, race, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic background, etc. existed. I lived through that crap and it was not fun.
I am heartsick today. In one way I am glad that I am old and not in good health so I may not live to see what happens in the far future. I do not understand Americans being so afraid of anything that is different. All of us came from some other country somewhere in our backgrounds and many had to learn English. Now we condemn anyone not "like us."
You might ask how I can say this? Well, just look at this election. We voted in the same guys that do nothing in the Congress (my senator does not even show up to work often) and we voted in a new President who does not even know what the Constitution says or the Bill of Rights, for that matter.
I know many hated the Clintons so much that they voted against Hillary. But look at what we got in your protest? A self-serving wealthy man for President who has had three wives and a First Lady now who was a former porn star. A sad time indeed.
