Update: Generally, I'm feeling mellower

Just checking in real quick in the middle of a hectic work schedule, which is why I haven't posted much lately.

I'm feeling mellower.

Since Dubya left office, I don't seem to have as much focused rage at the Administration. Looking back, it was something that built up over the eight years that he was in office....and it juuuuuuuust draaaaaaaaaaaaged out. It was torture. It seemed like it would never end.

Sure, there were the policies and decisions that flew in the face of every breath of principle I stand by, but what really got me was the fact that:
  1. He stole the 2000 election, which set the stage for everything that followed it.
  2. As an idiot or via malicious intent, he completely wrecked the Presidency and much of the country in the process.
While Obama's having to clean up after Bush's poopy mess, I'm so glad to be letting go of that rage.

I sleep better at night. While things are still chaotic, especially with the economy, I feel like things can only get better...and if they get worse before they get better, I at least know there's a person, and an administration in the White House, that's doing EVERYTHING they possibly can to make America better.

That's worth feeling mellow about.
