Not sure how many of you demos subscribe to Obama's website....but here's a flash...I do.
Just received an email from Obama's website and it included a video made just prior to this Tuesday's inaugeration. I love hearing him speak because he's so pointed and oozes with intelligence and he's what we oldies used to call "suave and debonaire".
He's not being political (which is why I share that here) and is asking all of us to pitch in during this time in our country's history. That's just sooooo absolutely necessary. Hey, Max and Blue South and Linda and all of ya that just don't like me much....we're all in this together whether we like it or not and the truth is, I honestly feel Obama is our only chance for survival. I follow the news probably more than most because of my life's situation and I really listen hard to the financial networks and I read the Wall Street Journal daily. From my perspective and from what I believe from what I see, we're in dire straights, folks. This isn't about which party pulls us out of this or who is the politician that became our country's hero...this is about all of us pulling together.
Sure, I have my conserv leanings. I don't believe that those that are successful are the only folks that should suffer to get us out of this. I don't think that we should give up our country's history of honoring hard work and sacrifice to be successful. That just isn't our heritage. I also don't believe that we should make it easy for people to rely on government to cure all their own personal financial ills...INCLUDING corporations. We've just gone down the wrong path on that issue, in my opinion, with the huge bail outs and such.
But, Obama and Co. is what we have to rely on to do the major stuff to pull our sorry asses out of this...and I include myself in that (pardon the language). I'm on some conservative/republican blogs sometimes and I say this very same thing and so far, I'm getting a bunch of kudos for saying it (not all, of course).
Let's all join forces and stop the petty bickering...let's "get-er-done".
Yeah, I know...."kissy, kissy, Smooch, Smooch".
I mean this.
