Election Day, 2012.
We’re less than 12 hours from either reelecting President Barack Obama, or electing Governor Mitt Romney as our new President.
While we come to the end of what was a streetfight of a presidential campaign, we’re still in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Many in the Northeast are still without power, and are doing their best to make do. Nerves are getting frayed as people struggle with a new normal. And to add insult to injury, another Nor’easter’s on its way.
Whoever winds up in the Oval Office will have his work cut out for him; having to face storm-weary survivors of Hurricane Sandy. He’ll have to understand that things have changed in our land, and that which worked in the past ain’t going to cut it today.
Tonight we’re going to hear the victory speeches and promises of work to be done in the days ahead. However, as one who’s been directly impacted by Sandy, I wonder. Please excuse me if If feel a little jaded these days; living the past week in an episode from Revolution does that to you.
These are my thoughts from the front, take them for what they’re worth. I’ll see the real deal once it’s all over.
