In All Fairness!

I have viewed, read and heard many attacks about our current President and it’s bugging me.

Does anyone remember former President Bush, do you remember the war he started? I mean Obama is being attacked left and right, up and down. Let’s look at the big picture here, the President does not have that much power, repeat; the President does not have that much power. We know that the country is in a mess, people are out of work and a lot of money has been spent. I have said this and I will continue to say it but the country was in a mess when Bush took it over. Obama came in a mess and is dealing with mess, it’s not fair to lay the blame totally on him. I hate that it’s hard to find work just like the next guy or gal but I can not dissect his character or where he came from.

It’s not fair he has had threats, called names because of his middle name and so on. People, Obama is our President whether we agree or not, he is not perfect and nor will he ever be. It will take many, many years to get this country back on track. I don’t want to think that he’s getting all this flack because of his ethic background, I would hate to think that. I’m just concerned with many people’s attitudes towards this political official. Did Obama start a war? Did he forget that groups of people existed after an horrific hurricane? I mean there were Presidents before him who have done a lot worst. The economy is bad but it was heading for disaster eight years ago.

We must respect our Presidents and know that, all of them will not give 100% but there is some positive points in politics. We may laugh but this President went to one of the most prestigious schools, is well educated and his wife has a head on her shoulders. We can say it’s because of him that the country has fallen to bits and pieces, but would we be right? Many people do not understand the power of the President, they must bring fourth everything that they want to pass and Congress must make the final decision. The President doesn’t have the last word. 

The attacks are ridiculous. It doesn’t matter where he came from as long as he became an American over several years. What if you were President, would you do a better job? How would you put this country back together? You must research a Presidents job and all that it entails. Who holds the highest position? I’m afraid it’s not the President. He is sort of a follower. Congress and the Senate are his boss. They tell him what he can and can not do. Give the man a break, will yeah!

    Anyone involved in politics will be “verbally attacked” and it is sad that people do not respect the Office of President of the United States. Let me just say this…people feel it is “OKAY” to bash former President Bush and who defends his good actions? He made errors and is there ever forgiveness? What about President Carter? He nearly ruined our country but do you see people bashing the Democrats? Nope, it is “socially acceptable” to only bash Republicans and that is not right. We are all human… and the blame game must end!

    I am of the same opinion. We should show a little respect. I get so much email running Obama down, it makes me furious. If anyone wants to see Democrats bashed, look at Fox. I for one think Republicans deserve all the bashing they get. I cannot see any reason to vote Republican unless you earn several hundred thousand a year. They are the rich white guys that think only of their money and have little respect for the poor or women.

    Obama certainly deserves respect. I don’t know of any other president where there was the controversy about where he was born or if he was citizen.

    It is every where. This is similar to Nigeria. Jonathan even receive more than Obama. You said it all. Any wise person should learn and refrain from unnecessary comments. Thanks for the observation.
