The morning after, I was upset to see the outcome of the election. In five minutes, I was over it. You see, I don't dwell on what I can't change.
Competing with “Hope and Change” in 2008 was difficult. You had a black man running for president with very lofty goals mixed with “Hope and Change.” President Obama followed George W. Bush, who was one of the most maligned presidents after Nixon. People were looking for healing. In one fell swoop of a vote, people believed racism was over.
Fast-forward to 2012 and you saw the most divisive campaign in modern history. Bigotry was claimed anytime you disagreed with the president. The reality of all the broken promises, the state of our nation and the economy were not enough to make this a one-term presidency.
The cold reality is that bigotry did take place. A large number of voters sat out because Mitt Romney is a Mormon. That is shameful.
Mitt is one of the most qualified persons ever to run for the presidency. He is a man of high moral character. The stories are legendary of his personal contributions and charitable acts. He was pigeonholed to be the bad man from Bain Capital. We could really have used a man of character in the office.
