I stumbled on this while reading about something else on latimes.com. I think that many more opinions like this need to go more mainstream media, and
it's something our president needs to read himself, as well as whoever encourages his photo op moments. I don't know if all of this "Obama is a
cool guy" publicity is to keep our attention away from what is really going on or not, but that needs to stop. This country is going down the toliet,
and people aren't speaking out enough. But at least I'm seeing more of these kinds of opinions seen in news sources other than alternative news
sites. It tells me that the lid cannot keep the boiling water in the pot anymore.
I know that people like to see Obama as something to look up to in a modern day leader where there is nothing else, but it's time to face reality as
does the president. The way he is going now, he'll just be known in history as the first black president of the united states of america, and that's
it. He'll just be another figure for black history month, but in the big picture, he'll either be just another president that did his term with not
much accomplished, or he'll bring us down hard. If he want's to make history instead of it being imagined for him or inherited because of his skin
color then he needs to step up to the plate. It's his choice, he can either be just a mediocre commander in chief, or he could be one of the greats.
Only history will tell.......
