I will more than likely get some flack for this post, but when has that ever stopped me? This is my blog and therefore my place to speak my innermost thoughts and feelings.
I came home from my HOA meeting tonight to find Ben watching the All Star game and guess who was in the booth with the announcers?
My initial reaction to this was pretty much the same as it was when I saw him filling out his basketball brackets on ESPN. But then I stopped and watched him for a bit. He was wearing his White Sox jacket, and just having a normal baseball conversation with the two announcers. He was being an all-American guy. But, I actually appreciated it this time. And it got me thinkng, that I kinda want to like the man. 'One of the things that I always liked about about President Bush (43), and of course he caught hell for this, was that he was a down-to-earth person. He could throw out a pitch at a baseball game, relax on his ranch, or mis-pronounce the word nuclear (nuk-u-lar) and it just proved that he was a normal person even though he was the most powerful man in the world.
So, I've changed my stance on Obama - I think he's a cool guy. He is personable and hip and I really do like that about him. That isn't to say that I agree with his policy, but I can see the appeal to him as a person.
That's all I've got for you tonight. I need to recap Ben's golf tourney from the weekend. I don't want to give any details away until I can fully flesh out my thoughts, but I will say that it was a good day!
