The rich and powerful together with the GOP, the bigoted, the racists and the misguided have waged a consumptive and gigantic battle against Obama, the Democratic Party, main stream America, and the very concept of Democracy.
From the time that Barack Obama campaigned for the Democratic Nomination for President to a year and a half into his Presidency, he has been hammered by the GOP, the media, big corporations, the Tea Party and even some Democrats for not being enough. Every day there is an attack on Obama for never being enough of something. Can we ever be satisfied?
As the disaster in the Gulf continues, President Obama has said the buck stops with him, which is refreshing because Obama is actually man enough to step up to the plate in the midst of it all and in spite of the criticism for the sake of the country. Obama has become the Cleaner in Chief.
A popular argument on the Right and by some in the same proclaimed enlightened Left is that Obama campaigned on the word "change," but they argue that everything is still the same or in other words a continuation of the Bush policies. However, this is simply not true, and Obama is compiling the record to refute it.
Our President, in just a few short weeks, is managing to address multiple disasters and crisis situations at the same time. Response to what may become the largest and most significant and dramatic oil spill disaster in our nation's history is now being blamed on the Obama administration by the "usual suspects on the "Right"' instead of the big oil company, BP that caused it, while at the same time keeping America safe from terrorism.
After the historic Nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty signed the previous week between the United States and Russia, the seemingly logical next step was to get as many nations together as possible to be on the same page. The threat of nuclear weapons getting into the wrong hands like al Qaeda or rogue nations like North Korea or Iran, who are currently developing nuclear weapons, should be of grave concern to the entire world.
President Obama is exercising his mojo and is on the move. For a little more than a year now, Obama has been criticized by America for doing nothing. The left says he's not doing enough and has compromised too much. The right says he has taken over America on one hand with too much government control and power while on the other hand, claiming he is too weak to do anything, but Obama keeps moving forward.
Yesterday, without his trusty TelePrompTer, President Barack Obama walked in to the GOP dragon’s den, made his plea and statement to the Republican Party, and then basically said "bring it on", I'm ready for you! It was masterful. Republican House leaders were schooled by a wise and powerful leader.
Tuesday’s special US Senate election in Massachusetts presents a critical moment for both the Obama administration and the Democratic Party, which is why Democrats need to mobilize to prevent Republicans from possibly derailing the Obama agenda.
Thanks to some seriously inappropriate words from Democratic Senator Majority Leader, Harry Reid, the GOP are up in arms while trying to spin their racist behavior on to the Democratic Party.
