Stressful? Heck, it's been a breeze. Yeah, but I've kept my faith, yanno? But to be called a whiner for saying, "Man, I was really hoping it would get better faster" is ridiculous.

Am I blessed compared to the vast majority of the people in this world? Yes, as are 99% of my countrymen. But you have to be smart enough to allow for a bit of relativity here, don't you?

Half a loaf is better than none and all, right?

Fine. It doesn't sound entitled to most people to complain about the economy with two kids in private school.

I'll know to just lie next time.

What's funny is this woman voted for Obama, and came out yesterday hemming and hawing her way to an attempted apology.

If she would have come out and directly questioned some of his policies it would have been fine. Instead she does this "woe is me, I might have to eat hot dogs to keep my kids in private school" business.

None of the rest of us took it that way. We took it as "I'm worried. I have supported you so give me something to tell people that this is going to get turned around." She came out yesterday and said she was hoping he would knock her question out of the park.

It probably wouldn't have went over well when he told her that she should stfu as long as she has kids in private school.
