Smug – Exhibiting or feeling great or offensive satisfaction with oneself or with one’s situation; self-righteously complacent.

I debated whether I should write about the debates.  Guess who won?  Unfortunately I can’t say the same for last night’s political debate.  I haven’t got a clue.  Certainly not the American public.  I endured the “composed” Hillary as she snubbed her nose at the radical unexperienced politician.  I got sick to my stomach as two supposedly intelligent people bantered back and forth  rather than answering to problems  facing every American today.

When we’re given a choice between the best of the worse, what are our options?

One wore a red pant suit – and to reference her quote as to what her opponent would wear to the debates, she said something like – probably his red power tie.  Not to be outdone, she pulled out all the stops with her red power suit, coiffed hair and smirkey expression throughout – looking down her nose at the raucous man on her right.  Sure he lost his cool.  Wouldn’t you?  The queen of lies is at her best when under pressure and she didn’t disappoint.

I’ve never been a Clinton supporter.  I don’t understand how her pompous attitude can be interpreted as confidence.  It was clear to me that the only attribute that clearly defines Mrs. Clinton is her ability to roll her eyes when questioned about the truth.

More time seems to have been spent on personalities than on issues.  The back and forth games, the accusations, the see what I’ve accomplished – is this a sign of what our nation has become – a group of narcissists who think they can do anything at the expense of the common man?

I really don’t think either candidate scored any great points last night.  Neither of them were presidential – unless you call being smug, presidential.  Oh, yeh, we’ve had eight years of smug.  When I was looking for an image to go along with this post, guess whose picture showed up?







As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Kathy, I couldn’t agree with you more! God Help Us!!! I have fasting and praying about this election and will continue until after the election. (And probably still after that). It seems the Holy Spirit is directing me to focus on who is Pro-Life. Right now that is how my vote stands. Thanks for this good post!

      I have been struggling with this too. I will vote for Trump because I can’t bear to have another crook running our country. He may be just what
      We need


  2. Obama is certainly the epitome of smug!!!
    I am so tired of being talked down to—as if the American people are idiots who know no better—but I think they live in that ivory tower of theirs…their groomed political / lawyeresque tower—honestly thinking that they do know better and that we are idiots especially if we believe anything counter than what they think—and I think we’ve got troubles!!!
