More Brain

This post is going to be fairly short, due to the fact that this is not in any way a political blog nor am I adept at talking politics in a manner in which I feel thoroughly confident outside of passionate discussions with my closest friends or harassing my mother. All I know is that I’m excited. So excited that I read articles every day, I look at various clips and videos that get passed along to me, I watch the news channels—even Fox when I feel like I need a bit of a jolt, and I just finished the following book…



I just wish everyone would read it. Of course if you already love the guy then it probably just reaffirms what you already feel. But if you’re undecided it gives insight outside of the craziness going on right now and all the spin etc., and if you are not an Obama supporter, then perhaps you just read it in the event that he is your president for the next four years and you don’t know as much about him as you’d like to. Because I read his first book and liked it, but I read this book and loved him. And not because I agree with everything he says; I don’t. I think that I am fairly conservative even though my political views are more liberal than my personal ones. But I just got so much out of this book and I feel that so many others would as well, regardless of party affiliation.

About a week or so ago I was reading this book flying home from Mexico and the flight attendant saw it and said in broken English, “I like”, while pointing at the cover. And I nodded my head and agreed with him and told him that I liked him as well. And then he said, “He has, how do you say,… more brain."

I couldn’t agree more.

Americans are sick of politicians and politics, but very much into Bri (or beautiful women like you).

bri- can you get back to posting gratuitous pictures of you in swim suits, shots of you in tight pants, or some type of lingerie (with the stretch-marks on your hips airbrushed please)?

thanks!

If you loved The Audacity of Hope you should read Dreams Of My Father. It gave me insight on who Barack Obama is. After reading it I felt as though he is someone that has the same ideals and want the same things for regular folks and our Nation. Dreams of my Father helped me decide that he was the man i want as the President of the USA.
P.S.
you will also find how he came up with the tittle The Audacity of Hope

stretch marks can only mean two things: you were big and got small, or you were small and got big- Kat Williams
