I know I’m a little late to this party, but it still amuses Mr that a guy who enjoys personally picking who will receive a visit from a drone strike, continuously spits on the Constitution, and is the most decisive president ever gets the POY nod. Why?
Twenty-seven years after driving from New York City to Chicago in a $2,000 Honda Civic for a job that probably wouldn’t amount to much, Barack Obama, in better shape but with grayer hair, stood in the presidential suite on the top floor of the Fairmont Millennium Park hotel as flat screens announced his re-election as President of the United States. The networks called Ohio earlier than predicted, so his aides had to hightail it down the hall to join his family and friends. They encountered a room of high fives and fist pumps, hugs and relief.
That’s right, he won for…winning the election. That’s it. One hell of an accomplishment. Bah.
