on President ObamaJanuary 21, 2009
I will not claim that was behind then Senator Obama when he was running for President, for the simple fact that he claimed a government should do some things I think it should not.
I will not claim that I think Obama will be the best President we will ever had, nor that his simply being Black is the root of his possible greatness.
I will not claim that I didn’t have tears to hold back as I watched him take the Oath of the President, simply because there is something to seeing a Black President, then hearing him call out the corruption and deceit of a government not working and a world still fighting.
While I will remain skeptical of this new administration, and consider hard its every move, I still have, of all things, hope that it will be successful, and that President Obama will be a great leader for our children to learn from.
And it dawned on me, this must be a good man, a great man, to say the things he says with such conviction, with his children right next to him. They will be listening, and I hope he knows this, and I hope he is doing his best to set a good example for his own children. A good father would certainly be a person I’d want leading my country.
