Proud Supporter of Obama 2012

It's no secret that I'm an active Obama 2012 supporter.  I voted for him in 2008 and think he had a hard road and overall took our country in the right direction.  I specifically am pleased with some of the reforms he made - such as the financial reforms, the changes in health care (ok...it's not perfect but a good starting point!), and his fight for equal pay for women.  There are some things I'm not so pleased with, too, but I think that would be the case regardless of our president since I can't be pleased all the time.  Just ask my husband ;-)  Just Joking!

Unfortunately we didn't get to see approved legislation on equal pay for women but I am still hopeful it will come.  I am worried, too, about what a Republican president would mean for women's rights here in the USA.  Case in point Todd Akin and Paul Ryan's stance on rape and conception.  How can this play out in real life?  Here is an eye-opening well written article on CNN from a survior's point of view.    

Now, for some fun with the political process I leave you with this video.  Mom and Dad - you'll get a real kick out of it so be sure to watch!
