My Name Is DudgeOH And I’m A Racist…

Not really, just in my eldest son’s mind!

As a libertarian married to a conservative, both of whom have become more politically aware over the last couple of years, there is a lot of political talk goes on in our house. Unfortunately, this means that our eldest son has latched on to a few points we’ve talked about and messed up the message…

Neither my wife nor I are enamored with the job that the current President is doing. We have never put this down solely to him, though he must take a lot of the credit for the good and the bad of what occurs during his time in office, as all Presidents must. However, our eldest child, has turned our discussions into:

“Its Obama’s fault my Dad is unemployed”

“Its Obama’s fault we are poor.”

“I hope we never have another African-American President”

Now, he has said these things a number of times, in our presence, and each time we’ve corrected him. The latter is particularly uncomfortable for us as it is not our opinion at all, and it is, obviously, an illogical argument.

However, over the course of the weekend he said at least the first and last of these things to my Sister-in-Law, who is visiting with my Mother- and Father-in-Law. That would be my strongly Democrat, Obama-supporting Sister-in-Law. Yay!

    Yikes! This must be hard on you guys (and kind of amusing, too, in its way). When I’ve read this on blogs, I always comment that Carter–previously the worst president in my lifetime–was a white guy, but we elected another white guy right after him who got it right.
