With the weight of the world upon his back and with many an international ear set firmly by his lips Obama began the arduous task of healing this nation.
If you have read my blog in the past you will take note that I don't always agree with Obama at every turn. Yet I was quite exhilarated when I witnessed the positive reception he garnered abroad.
His eloquence coupled with the right amounts of certitude and humility then balanced with his willingness to be accountable for America's arrogance and mistakes spoke volumes, and it gave insight to the sincerity and truthfulness of his intentions, his tone was hard to dismiss by Americans and our global neighbors alike. Even as he made it clear to the world that America has also been the catalyst of many good deeds that have affected the world positively.
What may be hard for the world to believe, is the knowledge known by the majority of Americans. That knowledge being that even during these, the worst of times in American history in more than sixty years, the majority of the opposition party wants President Obama to fail.
The right wing has tried like an old cowpoke to cover their trail by swishing a branch over their footprints. It is to late to take back words that are recorded and videos that reveal the divisiveness percolating in our own country.
After having a near illiterate, rude and arrogant face representing our great country for the past eight years one would think that an American from either side of the aisle would take great delight and pleasure and be proud to be represented by a thoughtful person, a representative of our country who is held in esteem by most of the worlds population, and not in disdain.
I firmly believe in that America we have a duty to agree to always have healthy disagreements, it is part of our fabric, but to wish the leader of our country ill will and to fail is an act of treason. I hated what the previous administration stood for, but I only wished that they would stop breaking our laws and stop stealing our liberties by shredding our constitution. I never wanted our leaders to fail if only for the sake of my country and my personal well being.
I am glad that Obama and his team have extended a long awaited hand in an effort to aide our planet. Hopefully in these dire times all recognized world leaders will in the words of John Lennon "Come Together" right now over me.
