Her Royal Highness, Queen Ann of Romney wants the little people out there in America to understand that she and her royal consort have been quite patient with us peasants but that it’s time for us to understand about the presidency, “It’s our turn now.”
It’s your turn. Dear, I don’t know what they taught you in that fancy boarding school you went to, but if you had been listening in civics class – not everyone gets a turn at being president. This is a job that you are voted into by the citizens, or as you like to call us, “you people”. The candidate provides verifications that he has the skills, the knowledge and a background that won’t be worthy of getting blackmailed by an enemy of the state and if he is deemed appropriate, he is voted in.
Lord Mittens has, in just a few short months, proved that he does not have the skills in bringing employment to this country, nor the basic people skills to even deal with his own party, let alone foreign heads of state and he simply does not have the level of stability or leadership needed for the position.
So, when he continues to prove time and time again that he isn’t suited for the job, what makes you feel that ‘it’s our turn’?
And when you say, “our turn”, who is the ‘our’?
‘Cause you can’t be mean rich people, since 34 out of the 43 have been millionaires, so they have quite had their turn at bat.
And you certainly can’t mean white people, since Barack is the first acknowledged multi-racial president. The Caucasians have more than had their turn.
And you sure can’t be talking about men, since they’ve all been men.
So, what category do you and your hubby fit in that’s been somehow overlooked by voters for all these years that makes you think that it’s now magically ‘your turn’?
Or is this not about a group at all.
Does it really come down to your own grandiose personal sense of entitlement because neither you nor your husband has even been denied anything in your pampered, indulgent little lives. Because of wealth that did not originate with your generation, position that was established before you both were born and a status assigned by your social and religious groups, the two of you have no idea what it’s like to have requests questioned or denied - to be outside of the decision making, to be evaluated. You have never comprehended a situation where your every whim wasn’t granted, where you didn’t get exactly what you wanted.
You have never been told no.
Your Highness, I believe that you and your consort are about to be granted a great gift pretty soon. You are going to receive a chance to learn something that can change your life and maybe that of your children, if they are smart and pay attention.
You are finally being taught that it’s not all about you. We’re sorry that you weren’t taught this before and that you grew into adulthood being such spoiled, entitled, self-indulgent little brats, we had assumed that your parents would cover it, but apparently not.
You are about to receive the knowledge that you and your husband are not the center of the universe and that the presidency of the United States was not inherently yours or your husbands’.
It’s a shock, I know.
And here’s another one – the American people, those peasants that you have shown such contempt for time and time again, we decide who becomes president. We decide what information we need to make our decisions and we decide how much information we need. Not you.
I guess in this case it will take a village to teach you two this lesson.
The lesson being summed up by the immortal words, ‘You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find, you get what you need.’
