Why I donated to the Obama campaign

I voted for our President.

I had high expectations and I’m pleased to say I’m happy with many of his accomplishments.

But when it comes to privacy and foreign policy matters, well, let’s just say I’m very disappointed and I think a number of promises were broken.

I also am troubled that he hasn’t taken a leadership position on a major civil rights issue with same sex marriage. 

Over the weekend, Lauren and I heard some ramblings of the likely Republican nominee on NPR. I said to Lauren, there ain’t no way the President will lose to Mitt.

Lauren replied, “well this is the same country that elected George Bush”

And with that, we made our donation
