OMC!
That is why I love the President too!

How could anyone vote against all that??

People who don't, must start voting in their best interests and the best interests of the whole country.

And that was all in his first 4 years with every problem imaginable thrown at him. I want to find out what President Obama can do with another 4 years!!

We are on the right track to economic recovery, we can't be sidelined now.

We want people to run this country, not corporations!

Luv you Tiger!!

Sorry about the previous blank comment, my paw slipped!

Concatulations on your DOTD, a very nice honor.

I had not planned on originating any comments on the election, not wishing to bring politics into our mutual love of felines, but as a Catservative I do think a respawnse to your post is required. I will deal with a few of your points in order, but not every single one, since some are just opinions. Just want to add a few facts to what you posted.


He promised to end the war in Iraq, and he did.

No, the Status of Forces agreement between the US and Iraq, which set the timetable for US forces to withdraw, was signed in September of 2008, by the hated George Bush. Obama merely followed that timetable.


He promised to get Bin Laden, and he did.

True, and I do give him credit for taking a fairly risky and gutsy move, but it is worth noting that much of the intelligence that allowed us to get him was obtained under Bush, using enhanced interrogation techniques that Obama has banned.


He said he would get healthcare for the uninsured, and he did

Well, he crammed Obamacare through Congress against the wishes of the people. Last poll I read showed 54% want it repealed.


He kept the US auto manufacturers in business.

Yes, but the way that he did it was really unfair: All the union members had their huge pensions and other benefits protected, while many non union workers lost most or all of their pension benefits.


He lets people love who they want to love.

Gay rights in areas like marriage are really a state issue, which the Federal Government is not involved in. For the record, I do not get too emotional on this issue. Many on my side of the spectrum do go overboard on this.


He moved FORWARD toward a brighter future, not backward to the social, economic, and military policies of bygone days

Uh, he said that if the stimulus bill was passed, unemployment by now would be 5.6%. It IS 7.9%, same as when he took office. The number of Americans working today is smaller than when he took office. He promised to halve the deficit by the end of his term, instead his first budget tripled it, and even today is is over twice what it was under Bush (which I agree, was too high).


End of rant, now the fun stuff! Meomy and daddy are going down the hill on Saturday to bring home my new furiend Viola, another Ocicat like me! Since I used to live where she is, and used to play with her then, we should get along fine!

Hi Saphira,

Thank you for expressing yourself on my diary page. We can disagree about things and still get along. Hopefully we can all work together for the betterment of humans and felines.

Ocicats are really neat and you are very pretty. I am hoping you get along and have a great time playing together. Just be patient! Sometimes it takes a bit to become friends. Me and my Uncle Tiny weren't always best buddies, but now we love each other!

Glad you feel that way Tiger, I think that Conservacats and Democats can be furiends.

Note from her dad... when I was in high school, a LOT of years ago, one of my best friends was as far to the left as I was to the right, and we had some great debates! But we never let it get personal, and kept the debate on an intellectual level.

Saphira was being retired from breeding last year, and that is how she came to be with us, surprise Christmas gift from our daughters. She has been with us for about ten months now. Vola was there at the time, being groomed to also be an Ocicat mommy. She is about sixteen months old now, so would have been about six months old when she was last with Saphira. According to Jesse (the breeder), they used to play together and slept in the same bed, so we hope that the both remember that.

You sure are right about how neat Ocis are, we have been owned by maybe 16 cats, going back 38 years, and Saphira is absolutely the best behaved feline ever! And very loyal and playful, loves playing fetch with us. A total joy!

OOPS! I mis-pawed, my new furiend to be is Viola, not Vola.
