I am not normally a mean-spirited guy. Maybe I am a bit protective of our President. I remember so clearly how palin led rallies in 2008 where people screamed that Obama should be killed (among many other awful things). I remember the endless mocking and cruelty and utterly dangerous disrespect shown to our President, our first black President. I remember how these actions were not only condoned, but even perpetrated by, leaders and lawmakers and officials of the GOP (and not just by idiot bloggers and media types).
Personally, I felt an affinity toward President Bush after the 9/11 attacks ( I live and work in nyc). I felt enraged and defensive when Chavez of Venezuela criticized MY president (even though it was bush). Conversely, I remember so clearly how a roomful of white folks clapped and cheered at the failure of the United States (led by newly-elected President Obama) to garner the Olympics.
Ladies and Gentlemen, fellow Progressives, I bring you White People Really Really (Really) Upset:Yeah, I am sure many of them are just mourning the policies and the positions that they lost. But you know damn well alot of them are mourning another four years of the black guy!
White People Mourning Romney

Live a little!
