"Obama Ends 2014 With Swagger ... "
The article in Huffington by Sam Stein is linked here or at the end.
It is a miracle the President, as the article states, has done all he
has done in his so called "lame duck session." It is the eighth wonder
of the world that he did all the things he has done during his entire
presidency despite an obstructionist Republican Party of very white
racists who could not stand the sight of his melanin
hue in the White House. They stymied everything he wanted to do to
lift the nation out of its 30 year mostly Republican induced and George
Bush promulgated coma. Barack Obama was handed a pile of lemons and
the lemonade he made is settling our collective stomachs.
My father always said that you could not argue with success. The
President now has much to crow about, the ebullience of which, one could
see at his pre-Hawaii Christmas vacation press conference. From Cuba
to health care to the economy to getting a formerly intractable China on
board with a climate change fix and everything in between if
Republicans want to undo all the good this president has done, okay, go
ahead make my day. They will sow the seeds of their own destruction in
2016. A new color in the political spectrum rainbow should be called
Republican Obsolete. The people, too, must vote to usher out the
Republican Party of mendacity. Republicans cannot love America as they
say they do when they really want to stagnate and sink it keeping what
remains of its monied carcass for only them, the 1% wealthiest.
What God giveth God can taketh away. Republican victories can be turned
into defeats. As some say in Hebrew parlance "Baruch HaShem"
translation: Praise God, let it be so. The Republican Philistines must
be crushed if they destroy the many good things this president has done
since he was handed the 2007 Bush nightmare economy in free fall and a
brutal savage war made up of lies that killed so many.
Barack Obama, I've stuck with you and can easily say I love you. All my
life I have looked for a new FDR whom my father, though a staunch
Republican, loved. This president may be my miracle answered even
though in November I thought all hope was lost. It wasn't. It was
lying there underneath the radar screen. As the miracle worker, Annie
Sullivan, the great teacher of her blind and deaf student, Helen Keller
said after much struggle: "She sees" and, now, so do I!
