600 miles!!!

ran 2.7 miles

I broke 600 miles today! I’m pleased to say I did the math and I am 48.6 miles ahead of schedule. I ran 22.8 miles this week, averaging 3.26 miles per day. It feels good to have my mileage budget at a surplus.

No news today. I am more interested in a “what if”. As I scour news sources everyday I see less and less democratic senators and representatives defending Barack Obama and more and more criticizing his motives. After the mid-term elections, November 2, 2010, one of many ways to describe the ballot boxes would be to assert that Barack Obama and his agenda directly had a heavy hand in getting an abundant number of liberal politicians fired. Not only were they fired, but they were replaced in teeming numbers by conservatives, many of which were Tea party candidates.

What I am trying to point out is the fact that none of the “career” politicians in Washington want to lose their jobs in 2012 and that the Senate and House stand to endure a repeat of November, 2010. As more and more members of Obama’s own party continue to question his leadership, things cannot be getting better for him.

What has changed? As a voter who cast a ballot on November 2, 2010, has anything changed? Let’s say Barack Obama gets a second term; is this nation in a rush to keep the senators and representatives who incensed us enough to vote them out of our House expected to keep them in office? Barack Obama’s appeal and his ideas, his words from behind a podium, his charisma, which got him into Washington, could certainly earn him a second term in this diverse nation, but I am anticipating another liberal exodus in Congress. It’s a challenge to fool an entire nation, but it is more difficult to dupe any given state or the districts that compose them.

1,478.7 miles to go.

  1. You have a budget surplus, maybe you should run for president! Our economy could sure use that kind of treatment. :-)
