"Back to Basics"
Here's Sasha, and Malia the First Kids with Bo the First Dawg hanging out at their home, the White House. Though as ya know I'm pissed as hell with their old man I still love them. Well okay I dig 'all' the Obama's despite the First Daddy's bleep ups.
I guess I'm just an old softy from the 1960's on this score. I can remember when interracial marriage was illegal here in the land of the free. Heaven's sakes because of the Jim Crow laws I couldn't even be a boy scout back then.
I really wanted to be one too.
Now we got a Black guy as the President of the United States of America. Hey that ain't nuthin' gang. Sometimes I forget just how revolutionary all this is. 400 years in the making, and all that. In a way President Obama don't have to do anything, but stay alive for the next three years to be successful.
'Of course' the whole establishment is out to destroy him. A rightwing commentator said outright the he "wants" him to fail.
Bleep that guy.
Obama was handed a sinking ship, and is doing what he can to stop the holes below the waterline. Which btw he is doing. It'll be years before that is recognized. So I have no other expectations than I want him to stay alive till 2012 or 2016 then retire, and give lectures around the world
(How well I remember this awful mess.)
