This blog is a celebration of the life, legacy, and history of the 44th President of The United States. After 233 years and several general elections, the first African Descendant proved to the world that nothing is impossible. Barack H. Obama became the 44th President against all odds. They tried everything to undermine his candidacy with outright lies, distortions, fear mongering, and race baiting. But, the brother handled the pressure with poise, and class.
Never before has any President entered the White house with so many problems at one time. Instead of helping to restore the country after a disastrous eight years in office, where we saw our economy crumble; banking industry on the brink of bankruptcy; auto industry on the verge of collapse; millions lost their homes to foreclosure; millions losing their jobs; the stock market losing 5000 points; a 280 billion surplus turned into a 10 trillion deficit; millions of Americans losing their life savings; a tax cut in the midst of two wars; you would think the republicans would do everything in their power to make things right. Instead the blocked, filibustered, obstruct, and tried to undermine everything the President tried to do. In other words they tried to sabotage the new President.
Apparently, it seems like his opponents expected him to wave a magic wand make all of our problems go away. They immediately started attacking him from all fronts, starting protest movement funded by wealthy right-wing Republicans. Everything he did was measured in terms of cost to the taxpayers. If they had their way The President would not be allowed to go to the bathroom.
But, he rallied with poise and dignity. Our economy is better today without any republican input. I am so proud of the first African-American President of the United States. Despite all of the hate, insults, and contempt showed to Barack Obama and his family, he is doing an awesome job.
Can you imagine how much further our economy would have been with a little help and cooperation from the Republicans?
So here I am, doing my part to back up the brother, to highlight his achievements and support his re-election in 2012. Thank you for your support, I hope you would join me.
“YES WE CAN”
The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too. We worship an “awesome God” in the Blue States, and we don’t like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and yes, we’ve got some gay friends in the Red States. There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America. In the end — In the end — In the end, that’s what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or do we participate in a politics of hope?
