Elected

I guess I must have been in the US in the build up to the 2008 election, but I dont remember any details of that, and given that my entry point is pretty much always Chicago, that wouldnt give me a clue as to where my end point was back then. But in all honesty, I dont remember there being much build up to the impending election, despite all the fuss about Palin at the time. Maybe its just different over there to the UK, its not like a local MP for every district, with all the hand shaking etc, you cant cover the US like that, even now with jet planes! I suspect also they focus on the close contests, and maybe I wasnt in one of those states?

This year might be different! Mitt Romney, the republican candidate is from Massachusetts. And guess which state I’m flying into next month, lol? So I’m expecting to see a bit of action this time around, or maybe not? No, he wouldnt get my vote, I suspect I lean more to Democratic policies, as much as I can tell from over here. Took one of those silly question things on the matter today, and yes, they came top, closely followed by the Green party. But given its pretty much a 2 party thing over there, the latter doesnt really matter too much about that!

Alright, any of the candidates want to offer me a green card, I’ll vote for them, but I dont think that will influence them too much lol!

The video, some would say a light hearted, less than serious, and quite dated look at a US election. 1972, but its not from the Nixon campaign, but the Furnier one, slightly less successful at the time!

  1. President Nixon could have stood to be just a tiny bit more like Alice Cooper. Just sayin’ . . .
