In the movie Remember the Titans, Denzel Washington’s character Coach Boone says, “Hold on, hold on. I’m not Jesus Christ or Martin Luther King or the Easter bunny. I’m a football coach, that’s all.” The black population in town was firmly convinced that he would do great thing, that he would be the answer to the prayers of and the salvation of the black people in their town.
I’m a supporter of Barack Obama. I believe in his ideals, in his plans of action, and in his desire to help Americans live better. However, I would behoove people to remember that, whether you support Mccain, Obama or someone else entirely, that these men and women running in the election for the President of the United States of America are just that: men and women. Be careful because whoever is elected will run into obstacles with Congress, with various unforseen challenges. No one is going to be able to do everything the promise and no one is going to be able to do everything perfectly in this position.
Also, please quit with the mudslinging. It makes you look petty and uninformed and, quite frankly, stupid. Attack the issues and the plans for dealing with those issues, please do not attack the candidates themselves or their supporters. It makes you the smaller person. More than anything, please remember that neither of these major party candidates can save you or save anything all on their own. They are merely men.
