    I realize nobody (or maybe, very few) will be able to relate. The honest truth is that I feel like he stole my life. Growing up, I had dreams of accomplishing similar things to what he has accomplished...I actually had set it up pretty nicely imo...

    Only to turn 18 and realize a guy had just done what I was going to try to do...(though differently)..

    It's like I was born 20 years too late.

    And it's like, now what? What do I do?

    And obviously, in my mind, he's now a standard I have to beat...which is pretty much impossible at this point...depending on what is being measured, at least..

    Regardless, I have my work cut out for me...

    And it's like I have very little say so in my life anymore...any and all opportunities, I must take, just for my own sake.

    (Though no matter what family remains my biggest priority..)

    Obviously, these types of thoughts are irrational...but who ever said I had to be rational?

    So, yeah, he's like a huge monkey on my back...which is insane...but that's what it's like for me. And how many people know what it's like to have the leader of the effing free world be a 'monkey on your back'?

    I wonder if the feeling is even understandable?

    I wish I were a bit older, I think it's unfortunate that his presidency is happening through a very formative block of my life, I could have dealt with it better if I were a bit older. As it is, I've made so many personal mistakes in my life...

    I mean, it's like, no matter what I'll do, it'll be like...'yeah, but someone already did it better'...the converse being, if that doesn't happen, then you know I did something huge...

    It's like I'm a redundant human being...and my life's purpose is to prove to myself, and others, that that isn't the case.

    Not to mention the whole anti christ thing...just imagine the possible conclusions I'd have to have considered? It's ridiculous that I've been put in this position...even though it's all in my head...but, really, how could I not at least think about it? I was a stupid teenager, I am a stupid young adult, I have no idea of the nature of anything...and it's traditionally the time people start thinking about such things, critically at least, anyway...

    Another part of me just wants to move away and never come back...but I can't rationally justify that...

    So, the sooner he isn't around anymore, the sooner I can forget he ever existed and the sooner I can go ahead and start living my life...and the better I'll be, cognitively, I mean..

    Because, I've been struggling a bit in that sense..

    (Redundant as my life may end up being, I have to try at least...otherwise I might as well not have existed..)

    And I have no idea how the heck I'll ever do anything that is even close to comparable...

    And if he does win another four years, that's four years where I'll just be watching my would be life being lived (though that's an arrogant assumption)...a waste of four years of my life, before, I guess, I get to put up a response that'll be extremely weak in comparison, inevitably, because, really, who the hell am I?

    So, yeah, just my thoughts this morning...

    no he's not.
    and no you don't.



    if that's really the impression you've gotten, you should probably investigate your sources more thoroughly.

    ^That is indeed one way people deal with not being Obama, so to speak.

    @xisnotx, what has your relationship been with male authority figures? Have you had any similar feelings towards them that you could be transferring to Obama?

    I think the reason that many are scoffing is that your irrationality derived from an arrogance that inflates beyond reality. You present the assumption that you and Obama are in competition, which is not the case. If he is achieving something important to you, it makes more sense to admire him and appreciate the fact that someone with his intelligence and ability is accomplishing it. If he doesn't win, doesn't accomplish these things, that doesn't mean that you will. Does that make sense? It's not a put-down, just realistic. The same is true for most anyone.

    To put aside the obvious... I could easily throw my hands up and complain about.. literally anyone making anything cool ever.. and saying I could have made that if things had only been different. It's a victimized mentality. As easily as you give up, blame others, and scoff at the way things are and accept them for what they are, I really and seriously doubt you would accomplish anything on the level that Obama has.

    Instead, it'd be more productive to focus on the plethora of other things that truly need an intelligent, determined person's mentality to make a difference. I didn't give up on life because chocolate milk and stackable washer/dryers were already invented.

    Your attitude is a cop-out.. A convenient excuse for not accomplishing anything big and impressive thus far, utilizing uncontrollable circumstances as a very well-positioned crutch. But.. People have babies at 85 years old, jump out of space, become the kindergarten cop AND the governor of California, cook shark fins into something edible, and feed hundreds of kids in their spare time. People do amazing, crazy things, and it's never too late for those. Look at something else. Do something else. Like, ya know, become the first black republican president, or eat sushi, or fix the energy crisis, or travel all of the world on foot.

    Sometimes I intend to say things that would probably not be taken very favorably. Sometimes I even write them out, as you have.



    I believe the key difference is whether or not we vocalize such opinions. 'Cause this one's strange.

    What a strange scapegoat.
