“If his presidency is to represent the full power of the idea that black Americans are just like everyone else -- fully human and fully capable of intellect, courage and patriotism -- then Barack Obama has to be subject to the same rough and tumble of political criticism experienced by his predecessors. To treat the first black president as if he is a fragile flower is certain to hobble him. It is also to waste a tremendous opportunity for improving race relations by doing away with stereotypes and seeing the potential in all Americans.”
Now the campaigning is over, or is it, will it be a presidency of continuous campaigning as with the “Clinton’s” presidency. Clearly, the next four years are going to be tough with the deceptive media fawning over the new president, notwithstanding the financial situation and the beginning of socialism, as well as the forever struggle against a group of people that would like to see us either under Mullah Rule, or wiped off of the face of the earth.
We must be diligent in our scrutinizing of our leaders. The Democrats now have complete and absolute power. There is no more whining or pointing of fingers. What will they do with this power? Will they continue to blame George Bush until they are out of power, or will they seize the moment and lead the country on our continued path to even greater things?
