The first one is pretty obvious: my brother was playing around and set an electrical box on fire, thereby knocking out power to everything nearby. Yesterday a breaker at his house tripped so he had to reset it and in the past he's had a habit of angering/worrying me with antics. Simple enough.
Second one was much stranger. Obama lost in 2012 to a total out-of-nowhere candidate: George W. Bush. Yes, the previous president who has already done the legal limit of two terms. Hence out of nowhere. We didn't even know he was in the race, so I'm not sure how anyone even knew to vote for him. All in all, quite the surprise. But the bigger surprise was that I didn't seem to care much. Now that one has me all confused.
Am I worried about Jeb Bush? That can't be, since as I remember he's said he's not considering running before 2016. Maybe it's something far more sinister. Maybe Obama is acting a lot like our previous president, to the point that 2012 would be a win for President Bush rather than Senator Obama. Sorta makes me miss the good old days before he was sworn in and had no record to criticize.
