“Pres. Obama: The Audacity of “Hope and Virtue!!!””

Wow…
There is a lot of stuff we need to address, so let’s get right at it…
First of all, somebody need to tell CNN that “Anderson Cooper” is in to deep and he should  be brought home ASAP…  There is lots of death all around him and after a while it will began to affect him in a harmful way…  It is time for some R&R and counselling for him…   That is my take on it… 

Secondly, Obama has really done a super job with the quake response…  I believe that because he has been so out front on this event, lives were saved…   To you Mr. President, we say, “Bravo!!!”   It is now time  for the Haitians to take charge of their situation as soon as possible…

Wow…

This stuff just keeps getting more and more exciting everyday… 
Culturally Speaking, we could not be alive in  a more fascinating and culturally exciting time in history than this…  
Wow…
So now lets talk about this one year anniversary of the “Obama Phenom…”   What grade does he get for all his work and efforts???
  Culturally Speaking, He has superceded most, if not all, of his predecessors… 

Yes, there are wars,  quakes, economical struggles,  and terrorist at large on every hand but (wow, first big but in the room) “these still be some exciting times…”   So today as I reflect on a hard troded year of  a first term/first time African-American President,  I reflect back to a day one year ago…   I reflect because reflection is the evidence of what our expectations are built upon…   So now today, one year later, where are we “Culturally???” 

Culturally Speaking, we are better today than we were one year ago…  I dare say that it is not for the “weak” to be the judge of a years’ performance…  No it is not even for the “strongest of the strong” to judge our advancement today…  No,  no – I say it is US(A) who carry that burden of passing judgement on a years’ time of work… 
Where have we come and from where are we destined to go…  If the question leads us to reflect then we are in the right place …   If the question causes us to be disdained then we are “the we” who choose to be part of the problem rather the solution…  If the answer to the question leads us to say, things have not change and hope has dwindled, then we are the strong and  would see thing the same way regardless of  its actual truths…  

So “Culturally Speaking” we are better today than a year ago because we are “Conversing!!!”   We are conversing with the left, the right, the old, the young, and all that don’t look like we do…   So as we reflect, let us ask ourselves a question: “what have we done to progress this nation to it’s  place of prosperity and nobility???”

Wow…
As I listen to the speech of a year ago from the First African-American man to ever take the helm of  this great nation as President;  I say “We the people have not done enough…”  We have not firmly grabbed hold of the “hope” that this energetic man so easy secure; “we must do more…”   It is up to all of US(A) to stand up and be accounted for the “hopes and virtues” that we so easily proclaim that we believe in… 

If one ask me how has Obama done in his first year in office, I would have to say that the man did what he said he would do in his inauguration speech…  “What have we done- is the question???”
I still say to Pres. Obama these things:
Pres. Obama, let the “Nay-sayers – Nay!!!”  Mr President, “let the “Whiners” whine…  This nations, to some degree has lost it’s soul and has become a nation of “Whiners!!!”  I believe that LBJ respected MLK because MLK did not ‘whine…”  Men of WWI, WWII, and Viet Nom were not whiners but their babies are…  
So Pres. Obama, stay the course…  For history has record the plight of the likes of Christopher Columbus when all seem lost, he stayed the course… 
Pres. Obama, keep the wind to your back…  And when the winds die down and they will; keep your ship headed in the right direction…  The winds will come again because they always do…
Pres. Obama, keep your eyes fixed on the goals which you layed out in your inaugural speech for that is the “hope and virtue”  we are all looking for…   

Wow…

So one year is gone and we are still here but (yes another  big but in the room) we are better than we were last year because we have “hope…” 
No-one can deny that President Obama stopped the bleeding and has stablized this  patient – America…  And most importantly, the patient has started to breath on her own; she has color back in her face; and by the grace of God, she will be up and running soon… 

So what is the state of our Union – better than it was at this time last year… 

So again, yes we can…
Do you feel me???
I hope you do…
