I’ve been quiet long enough-- too quiet...in my most profound praise of President Barack Obama. He’s only straightening out our beloved country, that’s all!!
I am prompted to write this following no them insignificant gestures as most monumental tributes usually one is rited by miniscule occurrences.
My impetus comes in learning he is voluntarily giving back to our government 50% of his salary.
Naturally, my GOP “friends” pooh-poohed this apparently “minor” contribution, but I look at it as a gigantic symbolize gesture to our nation that this President outs his “money where his mouth is tells us a universal sacrifice is needed by all to make the United States of America as great as it was while under Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Truman, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.
Carter has been criticized beyond belief as Rupert Murdoch (who’d like to be a replica of newspaper mogul William Randolph Hernot) leads a vicious right wing effect to take over our future. If Murdoch is ever successful, and he has plenty of help from legislators (like the gentleman now representing over our district!) Who hate his (Obama’s guts). But, by his sensible, methodical, humanistic, brilliantly conceived programs, our nation is on the way back in the right direction.
Domestically, the Bush recession is being overcome, unemployment is lessening, and interest rates remain absurdly (but necessarily) low.
On the foreign front, he inherited a terrible mess. Three miserable “wars” that never should have been fought, and died for. With Hagel and Kerry, we’ll finesse alliances that will force aggressively-evil nations to behave themselves.
So, folks, let’s just relax (if only for a day or so)and thank our lucky stars we have a most wonderful, most successful, most gentle and generous, President we could possibly ask for in these troubled, but on the way back, times.
