Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

A Rather Large Milestone (1000)

This is my 1,000th post.  A lot has happened to this country since my first blog entry.  I have also changed in the last two years.

Some of you are wondering how I can post 1,000 entries in less than 1,000 days.  This is especially true for those who remember the infamous summer of 2008 when I had almost no internet access.  It’s simple:  There were a lot of debates in 2008.  Except for the first Democratic debate after I started blogging debates in real-time as they were being asked so I didn’t look so polished and rehearsed.  Starting with this debate, everything is listed with the most recent question or closing statement first, followed by the questions in opposite order from which they were asked.

The blog started out as me talking about the issues.  One of the first things I have learned is that people want more than issues from their presidential candidate.  People want to see if the candidate relates to them on a personal level.  “Does he or she watch ‘American Idol’?”  “How does the candidate feel about Lady Gaga?”  “Would he mud-wrestle Betty White for a dollar?”  The questions Americans really care about aren’t always the ones most important to the future of our country.

I have also taken a role as an activist.  It is important to lead by example.  This gives credibility and shows voters you’re not just another clueless politician.

Another lesson learned is that people don’t always learn their mistakes until it is too late.  I spent a good portion of November consoling people who had voted for Barack Obama instead of voting for me.  There a few mistakes I made in 2008 that I vow not to make in 2012.

I look back and I realize that the goal isn’t to have 1,000 or 5,000 posts.  The goal is to have people read the posts and hope that my writing is compelling enough that they will vote for me in 2012.  There will be changes to the world and to this blog as everything brings about change (except possibly President Obama, who seems to be satisfied with the status quo.)

Thank you for your continued support.  It is your support that has kept my campaign alive and this blog of information going.  Together, we will succeed.

  2. Congrats on 1000 posts! If you don’t win in 2012 will there be a run for 2016? Also have you thought of running for senate. That is an every two years thing right?

    Also could you possibly resurrect Kaptain Kangaroo but this time you could be the host. You still have to wear his ridiculous outfit though. 🙂

  3. He has a C for caption instead of a k. Also where the heck are your threaded comments?

  4. There will be only one Captain Kangaroo. There are 917 days until the General election. Whether I run in 2016 will depend on a number of factors.

  5. Where do you stand on threaded comments?

  6. Mel, I am guessing that threaded comments aren’t part of this format. I would like threaded comments.
