Life without Obama

What if Obama hadn’t been President for the last four years? What if McCain-Palin had been in charge instead? What would be different (or the same) about your life? I asked.

MARCEL
Age 38. Occupation: Undisclosed.



What would be different about your life if Obama hadn’t been president?

Marcel: “It'd be pretty much the same, 'cause it'd be the same game, with different players.”




ROY
Age 63. Occupation: Writer-director.



What would be different about your life if Obama hadn’t been president?

Roy: “I'd be miserable. I'd probably be living somewhere in Asia right now. Or Italy. I don't believe the Republicans even care about America. They just care about their party. And Palin was an idiot. And McCain disappointed me. I used to respect him, because I'm an army veteran. During the Bush administration, he and Bush were against a GI benefits increase. Personally, i just think the Republicans don't give a damn about the working man. It's all about the rich and the rich and the rich,, and that's what i don't like. The only difference I can see is that when Obama got into office, the Republicans in the Congress tried to block everything he tried to do.”




DANIELA
Age 33. Occupation: Lawyer.



What would be different about your life if Obama hadn’t been president?

Daniela: “Different? I'd probably know a lot more kids that died in the war.

"Same: It's all kinds of the same political bullshit that goes on, no matter what the candidate is. But I guess I still eat into the whole thing that maybe there is hope. Cliché with this campaign, I know...”

Election 2012, according to a fortune teller

I asked a tarot reader: How's the rest of the presidential election going to go? Who will be President for the next four years: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Yes, she had an answer.
