Whatever you want, Barack. Whatever you want.
I found myself saying those words to myself this morning as I watched his speech.

I also found myself feeling shame for the many things that I know I could have done up till now, but haven't.

And fear that I would not be able to measure up to the things that might be asked of me.

But it's a nice calming mantra that helps me somewhat.

Whatever you want, Barack. Whatever you want.

1. Bad attitude
Question leaders, even if they are genuinely decent human beings like Obama.

2. I don't think that's what the OP meant
Correct me if I am wrong, but it seemed like the OP was referring to President Obama's call to serve the country through community service and civic engagement.

3. That's what I took from it and I felt the same way. I'm thinking, I could
be doing a lot more.

4. I think the OP means...
joining in community service, etc. rather than "do whatever you want with your policies as President."
