For My 45K post. Mele Kalikimaka Mr. President! [View all]

This is a re-post for my President. A long, long time ago I posted this. So long ago this President gave us hope. A President that did not whine and wail that he inherited a mess...an economy that had near collapsed due to Republican control. Obama did not sit down on a toilet to tweet vulgar and inappropriate comments every morning. He did not sit in a chair and watch Faux News 8 hours a day while consuming super sized meals at MickieDs. He did not spend his time 24-7 destroying peoples healthcare, a child's care, snaps...elderly care the f**king term for entitlements...SS MEDICARE AND MEDICAID!!!! Which is a program that we have all paid into for our entire life. Fuck dotard and his white privilege. A PROGRAM THAT ONE PAYS INTO FOR OVER 50 YEARS IS NOT AN ENTITLEMENT!

My President Obama. A very Merry Christmas to you and the people that you sought and fought so hard for. You will not be forgotten.


Its been a tough week for all of us - no one more so than our President. As I've watched him battle the tears over the loss of our babies only to have to switch gears to take on the lunatic fringe in Congress, I've been spending some time thinking about how grateful I am that he is willing to represent us by taking this all on. I can't imagine another human being I'd rather have in the White House at this moment in history.


Oh, and one more thing...

I'd like to once again repeat something Alice Walkerhttp://immasmartypants.blogspot.com/2010/11/it-is-soul-that-must-be-preserved.html wrote to President Obama shortly after he was elected.

I would advise you to remember that you did not create the disaster that the world is experiencing, and you alone are not responsible for bringing the world back to balance. A primary responsibility that you do have, however, is to cultivate happiness in your own life. To make a schedule that permits sufficient time of rest and play with your gorgeous wife and lovely daughters. And so on. One gathers that your family is large. We are used to seeing men in the White House soon become juiceless and as white-haired as the building; we notice their wives and children looking strained and stressed. They soon have smiles so lacking in joy that they remind us of scissors. This is no way to lead. Nor does your family deserve this fate. One way of thinking about all this is: It is so bad now that there is no excuse not to relax. From your happy, relaxed state, you can model real success, which is all that so many people in the world really want. They may buy endless cars and houses and furs and gobble up all the attention and space they can manage, or barely manage, but this is because it is not yet clear to them that success is truly an inside job. That it is within the reach of almost everyone...

Because, finally, it is the soul that must be preserved, if one is to remain a credible leader. All else might be lost; but when the soul dies, the connection to earth, to peoples, to animals, to rivers, to mountain ranges, purple and majestic, also dies. And your smile, with which we watch you do gracious battle with unjust characterizations, distortions and lies, is that expression of healthy self-worth, spirit and soul, that, kept happy and free and relaxed, can find an answering smile in all of us, lighting our way, and brightening the world.


Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday to all at DU.
