So Barack Obama is set to make history today.
Not only will he be named the 44th president of the United States, but he is the first non-white president to be elected.
This is a historical moment, so I say this with the utmost respect:
I am so sick of Barack Obama, and he’s not even the president yet.
Nothing against Barack: I’m sure he’ll make a great president, and it will be interesting to see what he does to try and fix some of America’s problems, such as the economy.
For the past few days, all the news coverage has been about Obama. I understand the significance of it all. It is a huge moment, but I can’t take any more stories on it.
There’s even stories such as who is Obama dancing to (a story on Yahoo earlier this week), what celebrities are there (I don’t care who Oprah supports), and Canadians who have gone to Washington to see the inauguration (all the stories here from the local media).
It’s to the point I can’t watch any television newscast. It’s almost like all the television stations have become the OTN (Obama Television Network).
Personally, I’m not looking forward to the next month, where every day we will be continously updated on what Obama is doing right at that moment.
It’s a historical moment, but I’m looking forward to it all being over, so I can start watching the news again.
