The Man of the Hour

I am very excited to relay the news that Barack Obama is officially running for President!

He is a brilliant and inspiring orator who conveys an energetic message of hope and change in America's stagnant political and social climate.

Almost all of the major moments in American history in the last 30 years have been on the international scene, while the left-over internal divisions from the 60's have gotten deeper and deeper leaving America today in a state of near political paralysis.

Obama is a new candidate for a new era. He is one of the few politicians that actually inspire me, with his intelligence and his vision for our nation. I ask that all of you put your political prejudices on hold for a few moments to listen to what Obama has to say. Not to forward any political agenda, but to highlight the unusual message about America that Obama is trying to spread. The march of division and cynicism can be put on hold. America's greatness can be restored.

"It was here, in Springfield, where North, South, East and West come together that I was reminded of the essential decency of the American people, where I came to believe that through this decency, we can build a more hopeful America," he said. "And that is why, in the shadow of the Old State Capitol, where Lincoln once called on a divided house to stand together, where common hopes and common dreams still, I stand before you today to announce my candidacy for president of the United States."

"If you will join me in this improbable quest, if you feel destiny calling, and see as I see, a future of endless possibility stretching before us; if you sense, as I sense, that the time is now to shake off our slumber, and slough off our fear, and make good on the debt we owe past and future generations, then I'm ready to take up the cause, and march with you, and work with you," he said."Together, starting today, let us finish the work that needs to be done, and usher in a new birth of freedom on this Earth."

"Each and every time, a new generation has risen up and done what's needed to be done," he said. "Today we are called once more — and it is time for our generation to answer that call."

Obama will be on 60 Minutes this Sunday - everybody should watch and listen to what he has to say.

It is now 2013 and Barack Obama has served his first term and will shortly be inaugurated for his second 4-year term. I still firmly support this man and believe he wants to be the historic leader our declining nation needs to restore it to its former glory. It is shocking to me how dysfunctional Congress has been and continues to be; their inactivity and obstruction is handicapping someone who should be one of our greatest presidents.
