After Four Years, I Am So Proud to Say the Following Words: President Barack Obama.

And if America does the right thing and gives him the second term he has earned, President Barack Obama will be one of our nation's most transformative Presidents in our history. I know it.

In fact, I tell you this: Barack Obama is the most American of all of our Presidents in our country's history.

I am so proud of what all he has accomplished and how he handled himself through all of the adversity.

My heart swells with love and appreciation when I see his wife, our First Lady, and those beautiful daughters. This is the America I love. And this President has the heart, mind and steel to govern. He's proven it against all odds and with very little help.

How can we not now do all we that can to give him a hand after all he has done for us?

nor is he dumb, which makes him vastly superior to Romney. He has accomplished a lot in
a very difficult situation.

Further, by in large, the Democratic platform is about human needs and rights while the Republican platform concentrates on giving more money to the wealthy and placating the Religious Right.

we were on the brink. He doesn't get the credit due to him. His accomplishments in spite of the GOP are impressive. His next four years will be a turning point for our country. He's got all the right stuff and won't have to worry about being re-elected again.

He came out of nowhere & beat Hillary Clinton of the tag team Bill & Hillary Clinton.
Hillary was going to be the 44th President of the United States if Obama didn't run.
The fact that he came that far & bested one of the most dominant candidates in the Democratic Party showed that he had what it took to go the distance.
It was elementary that he would do outdo McCain.

When we saw Barack & Michelle, we knew it was right.
Michelle was ready to be the First Lady & we knew that First Ladies would never be the same again.
Michelle has reinvented the role just like Hillary did, just like Eleanor did.
There was no snobbery & stuck-up-ness in Barack Obama. He truly was a Man of the People.
The People's Champ.
Both of them transformed the White House & The Presidency.

There's a decentness to Barack Obama & this is also what dismays some of his supporters when he gets behind questionable policies or makes questionable compromises.
We know he's better than that. We believe in his character.
We know he's The One that's gonna set this country on a brand new course.

Yep, he has to be Superman whether he likes it or not.
He has the power to be Superman & save the day.

Many of us (including me) who have been frustrated with him even angry with him know to get back on board to give him his 2nd chance.
To set right what once went wrong like the old Quantum Leap intro said.
I strongly believe he will be MUCH better in his 2nd term ESPECIALLY if he gets a good Democratic Congress to back him up.
He has silently dismantled the Republican Party & is transforming the lethargic Democratic Party.
I believe after he's done this country can reverse course from this so-called Conservative direction we have been on since Reagan & move in a much more Progressive direction.

It feels like Destiny. Maybe because it is.
