“My President Looks Like Me” By Solomon “Superman” Carter

December 30, 2009

“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It’s the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.

It’s the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states. We are, and always will be, the United States of America.”

-President Barrack Obama-

These were the words spoken by a man that just 8 or 10 years ago I would have told you that you were crazy if you said he was going to be the most powerful man in the world. If you would have told me that I would be standing on the lawn of the capitol mall watching him be sworn in with his hand on the same bible that Abraham Lincoln was sworn in with I would have said you were off your rocker. I watched an 80 year old woman and her daughter of 62 cry their eyes out because they had lived to see the day that an African American man was the President of the United States of America. I was moved to tears myself almost, because for the first time in my life… my president looked like me.

It has been almost one year since these events transpired, and lots of things have happened since my president took office. I say my president not because he is a black man like some will assume, but because I believe in this man. I believe in what he stands for, and what he is trying to accomplish. These things won’t happen over night… some things won’t even happen in one year. Most of the plans this president has will take his full term (and beyond to another hopefully) to be realized. This country has been run into the ground by the Bush administration in my humble opinion… both of the Bush’s, the last one for eight LONG HARD years. This is when the country took it’s biggest down turn in my opinion. The mistakes in administration that were made by Bush the 2nd (is what I call him) made such a negative impact on the economy, education, & health care that some Americans feel it will take decades to recover from. I don’t believe it will take that long, and I do feel that this man can get America back on track.

What Obama doesn’t need are the critics… second-guessing every move. and trying their very best to find fault at every turn. I know that these critics go along with the job of being president, but if we can’t see that …this time our president may actually have the intelligence and charisma to make it happen, but sad to say there are some Americans that are just waiting for this man to fail… WHY?? Why can’t we all just show this man the support that is needed to fix what’s wrong in America, or is what’s wrong with America some of the people (haters) that live here. Give the man a chance to
succeed for God’s Sake he’s been the president for less than a year…the people in this country elected Bush the 2nd… TWICE!!! …and he was a dumb ass that couldn’t even speak on camera coherently whatsoever… let alone run the country and affect policy like a president needs to.

I know some people may say that I’m “Bush Bashing”, but I’m really not. It’s not his fault he’s an idiot. I blame his idiot family for raising an idiot and fixing the election so he got elected…TWICE! No Bush wasn’t our only problem. Like I said before we have a nation full of haters, and that’s a part of the problem as well because they facilitate doubt in our leader by
questioning his every move. I am a leader of men & women, and when I have an individual in the organization that outwardly questions my every move I fire them because that’s terrible for the morale of the other team members just as it would be on a battleship or an aircraft carrier or anywhere there is a leader and subordinates… same difference. It’s called dissension, and dissension leads to mutiny in some cases.

The American people need Leadership, and we finally have it… Let the man do his job, and STOP HATIN ON HIM.

…and My President looks like me
