Proud American

Home after an amazing night in Grant Park. It is a night that will stay in my memory for the rest of my life. I'm so happy I was there to experience it. And for Obama to win not by 500 votes, but by a wide and certain margin, well it reflects the change so many people have been patiently waiting for. In case you missed his speech, you can watch it below.

No thank you. Are you sure you are my daughter? If you know anyone that needs some money let me know. I'll start spreading the wealth today. At least I will get a tax credit for the handouts. His home state may have been a landslide but not mine. Sound like an angry republican? You betcha! Not sure I will ever file another tax return!

When I saw the picture of you and Charlie at Grant Park, it summed it all up for me. Hope for our future. It's real, it's here, it's what we make of it. I'm so glad that you guys were there so I could live vicariously. Love you, Linda

That's really great you got to be there for the celebration. I thought of you and your husband as I was watching the speech on TV. It was a good day. (And, in Baltimore, we went up on our roof and cheered as the cars drove by on Calvert and St. Paul, honking their horns.)

As a republican myself, I am happy for Obama. Never before have more people voted for one guy. This was a day that made history and I feel as a country we have to be behind whoever is president. We can't have attitudes like "dawn" because if we do our country will go no where. Might as well turn that frown upside down because we have 4 more years.

To Anonymous...you obviously don't know Myndi's Mom at all or you would know that most of what I said was meant in a sarcastic tone.
I love my daughter very much and do respect her opinions. My main beef is that when all is said and done and my state and federal taxes are paid the final tab is about 45-48% of my families income. When tax increases are talked about it's really hard to feel warm and fuzzy. Anyway sorry if I affended you, that was not intended and I apologize. At least I had the guts to leave my name. LOL Love you Myndi, Mom :)

Sorry for all the misspellings in the last post. I am lost without spellcheck and it was a late night with Myndi's Grandma in the hospital. I should have had Myndi do some editing (LOL). I did not get the spelling and grammar gene.
Myndi's brother thought for the longest time Missouri to be spelled Mizzourah. Go Tigers!
