Barack Obama is Country First..The Sacrafice!

The office of president is the highest office in our Country, yet it is being disrespected in the 2008 election with the inclusion of racism, hate and character attacks along with some of the most vicious lies attacking both Barack Obama and wife Michelle.

 

As the race to the White House nears, the attacks are more ferocious and coming from within the states and abroad from places as far away as Africa. The most recent un verified attack calls into question Obama’s citizenship requesting a showing of his birth certificate. There were further complaints reported that Michelle Obama called the news organization in defense of her husband concerning allegations of where he was born.

 

It’s difficult to understand what is going on in American and some other parts of the world when it comes to Obama. Not only is there the fight here in the states, but Africa too. There are without doubt deep feelings motivating supporters and non supporters of Obama’s candidacy. The real problem is fairness, why are there so many attacks against this man that are so far removed from facts related to policy and issues on economic and world affairs during a time when our economy has spiraled out of control?

 

In the fight for justice why have Americans not called for justice in demand of accountability for the biggest disaster in history on Wall Street?  Here we have Individuals walking away with millions, even billons while average citizens suffer, this should make people angry. Instead the focus is on Obama being everything but American on paper and in heart. I find this astonishing to believe in our great Country a man running for the highest office would receive this type of treatment at home, it is expected from other countries, but not here in the United States of American.

 

Where will this end? Possibly with the next president entering into office bruised in some way because the realities of his journey to the White House will include both a fight for and with the people. This is a fight not just about party, but inclusive of racial divide, religious hatred, and social dysfunctions in our Country. The day the senator stood on the steps in Springfield Illinois and announced his candidacy was probably the day he though the Country had changed and was ready and open to the possibilities he wanted to bring as president. Today he knows intellect, strength and character overrides ignorance, hate and entitlement and he must work to build better relations with all people in the world, in the end he will be a better man from the adversity, history supports the position.

 

Michelle is not running for office, she supports her husband and children as a wife should. However she has been called un-American, angry and some have implied she too has something to hide. Most candidates’ wives have the luxury of looking good, standing behind their husbands with a smile while remaining unnoticed. Not this candidate’s wife, every word, action right down to that fist bump at the acceptance speech is looked upon for a reason to find her militant. The joke remains that a militant black woman does not attend an Ivy League school for earning those credentials for acceptance into the militant black women’s club, a fictions organization, by the way.  Michelle is a decent woman who loves her husband, children, family and Country. Her agreeing to support her husband is evident, as she gives him up to the Country. That is a woman’s highest level of sacrifice. No presidential candidate in history has made a greater sacrifice of himself and family running for office than has Barack Obama. Like him or not he is of great substance, courage and character.

  1. Just provide the proper documents to prove he can hold the office and put it all to rest yesterday.

  2. A good place for you to start would be your government office officials responsible for protecting the Country and enforcing the imigration, naturalization and Citizenship laws in this Country.
    You see rumours can be verified if the intent exist in seeking truth which can put them to rest. However if they are needed to justify other motives there is no need to search for truth..now is there?
