Go out there and vote like your country depends on it

Updated

Let me finish tonight with this.

A good president. Isn’t that the question? Is he a good president? If he is, keep him there. If he’s not, look elsewhere.

Are you personally proud to have Barack Obama as our president? Does he measure up to the history books—this guy who pulled us back from abyss in 2009, ended our reliance on the emergency room for people’s healthcare, ended an un-wise war in Iraq, found and killed the bad guy who led the attack in 2001, cut the jobless rate down from over 10%, where Dubya had sent it skyrocketing, and doubled the stock market and our 401ks?

Is he a good president, this man who brought us through four years of clean, scandal-free government, whose family made us smile to see them in the White House?

You’ve got the weekend to think about it. Then go out there and vote like your country depends on it.
