As the excitement of who will become the next president of the United States stirs, I can’t help but to be saddened realizing this is our last year with my favorite president, Barack Obama. Bill Clinton is my second favorite.
Most love Obama and for those that don’t, I advise you to kick rocks. I mean, how could you not love our president? I often hear people saying “he didn’t do this or that”. One day this lovely United States of America will get that there are just too many issues on this earth for ANY president to resolve in one or two terms. I can think of several reasons to love President Obama. Here’s one reason we all should. One bastard. Six syllables. Osama Bin Laden.
I’ll give you another reason to love him. In 2011, Obama ended the Iraq war that took the lives of over 4,000 of our soldiers. Former President George Bush, Jr., called the war in 2003 and his term ended with the war still going. SMH! Bush didn’t give a damn. He was out of here.
Here’s one last reason that comes to mind that has brought President Obama a number of supporters. He got the ball rolling on the legalization of Marijuana. Yahoo!
Love him or not, It is no doubt Barack Obama is a presidential legend. After all, he was our first Black president, although that is to be debated. He’s smooth as Billy Dee Williams was in Lady Sings the Blues. He speaks the lingo of the average citizen and not all the White House mumbo jumbo that leaves us confused. Dont get it twisted. Our president takes his job very seriously. In my opinion President
Obama is definitely the most personable president I know of.
The entire first family really opened up their lives to America. We watched their daughters grow from elementary to teens.
We will miss seeing the first lady and her ‘divalicious’ attire. I’m going to miss the way our President and the first lady expressed their love for each other in front of watching eyes; the eyes of the entire country.
As much as I am going to miss President Obama I will not let that shift focus on who I want to vote for in this years election. I will pay attention to the candidates. Personally, I will vote for who sees the world like the millions of other regular citizens such as myself…..(as long as they are part of the democratic party that is!).
I encourage you to get involved with your community, local and federal government. You shouldn’t complain if you do not vote. Be wise in your decision when choosing a candidate. Don’t just take the words from the debates or fall for campaign tactics. Research all and base your own opinion. Do not follow the bandwagon. If it all gets overwhelming. Go with a party vote. The worse thing you can do is not vote.
Politics can be confusing, but the more you follow what’s going on, the more you will understand. This will help you feel confident in your decision. If your vote does not win, do not use that as a reason to ignore politics for the next four years. Respect your new leader. They may end up doing a better job than you ever expected.
Although I hate to see President Obama go, I am excited to see if we will make history again and have the first female AND the first husband/wife presidential duo.
I’m going to miss you President Obama. #Go Hillary! #Shut-Up Trump
