luvs2travel saidI think the essence of what I was trying to say is that he makes me feel inspired and capable. I am one of the most cynical people I know, but The energy of this man and the people who have elected him to office is truly inspiring.
It reminds me that Barack Obama is not the savior of the world. It reminds me that he is here to remind us that we must work for ourselves and others. We must work to improve our own lives by making decisions that positively affect those around us.
Is he a megalomaniac? Probably. Anyone who aspires to the office of president is most certainly self-absorbed in a way that few others are.
Is it necessary to remain cautious, study the decisions our government makes and remain active in the process? Absolutely.
What makes me swoon is his eloquence, his intelligence, his experience in understanding how all things affect all other things.
Politicians can be an ugly bunch, but it's pretty clear that his policies will differ drastically from those which have turned our society into the mess that we have today.
You know thats good if you feel inspiration from him in that way, it's good for you. I truly, truly hope he dose not let you down.
I do feel sorry for him, as when he takes over the White House, he also takes over a crumberling country, with everything falling around him. I just hope this man has the ability to get this tough job ahead of him done. I could go on about how America has fucked up so badly since WWII, but thats another thread.
I well remember working in my yard, on a fine Spring day, and My Republican American Husband come to me and asked, who do I think won the election. I said Obama. There was no negatives said at that point. I did say lets Give Abe Lincoln a moments thought, as I'm sure he would now have a smile on his face.
