I am sick and tired of all of the Barrack Obama detractors. Listen up Americans, I am going to say it one more time, “He is your president come hell or high water. You might not have voted for him, but if you are an American citizen you need to support him.” You have done so much to undermine his presidency from questioning his citizenry ad nauseum, to his religion, which shouldn’t matter anyway since the whole Constitution, bill of rights freedom of religion thing. Of course I have a feeling that was all just rhetoric and conjecture same as the idea that his race is not the reason for all of this scrutiny and perfunctory skepticism. America didn’t prove in the 2008 election that they were no longer racists by electing him, they proved that sexism reigns supreme in this grand land of ours. In the hierarchy of “isms” in the world, sexism trumps racism every time. Thank goodness the male ego is so fragile. Or we might be under the mighty and wise reign of Palin the conqueror. Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
The best way to explain what is happening with our current presidency is to use the following analogy. George Bush was the child who was told to clean his room, his room being America. Instead of living up to his responsibilities, he decided to shirk his duties and throw all of our shit in the closet pretending that the room was clean. The American people are the over indulgent fat lazy mom who popped her head into the room and took a quick cursory look around and congratulated him on a job well done. While all the while the mess is bulging out of the closet about to burst out. When he finally leaves the room and the dad walks in to open the door and see what all the creaking and cracking is, the closet explodes and all of his mess comes cascading down. Now the dad is forced to clean up the mess, and since mom already told little Georgie to go outside and play, and doesn’t want to help clean up the mess herself, leaves it to the dad to tidy up. Well dad in this case is Obama and his administration. They are doing all they can to mend the mistakes of the previous administration and to help move this “household” into a successful and bright tomorrow.
The detractors, nay sayers, right-wing kooks and mudslingers need to get on board with this presidency and essentially this nation. America is in a place we haven’t found ourselves in since we became the lone super power on this planet, and that is on the precipice of our demise at our own hands. We don’t have to worry about terrorists from other nations, we need to be concerned about the people in this country that could care less about the American public and are more interested in their own self interests. This happened once before in our history and it took a Civil War to bring us out of it. I hope that we have learned something from our own history and decide to come together as a nation and put away our differences and allow our duly-elected leader to do his job, which is to lead us.
