President Obama has endured hate speech, disrespectful congressional members, threats, and nonstop criticism for three years. I believe that most of the criticism is based mainly on the fact that he doesn't look like the other previous forty-three presidents.
When will the Republican Party, conservatives, and Tea Party members realize and accept the fact that Obama is a Christian who has declared his faith on countless occasions and that he believes in God? I believe that President Obama knows that it was God who made it possible for a self proclaimed African-American to become president and commander-in-chief of the United States of America.
It is time for those who hate President Obama or dislike him because of the color of his skin to get over it. He is your president too. More importantly it is time for the "main stream" media to stop making these unworthy criticism stories of people who dislike the President Obama because of his race "NEWS. "The latest none worthy story includes the statement that President Obama didn't mention God during his Thanksgiving speech.
In his November 24, 2011, weekly address President Obama stated in part: "From my family to yours, I’d like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving. Like millions of Americans, Michelle, Malia, Sasha and I will spend the day eating great food, watching a little football and reflecting on how truly lucky we truly are.
As Americans, each of us has our own list of things and people to be thankful for. But there are some blessings we all share.
I know that for many of you, this Thanksgiving is more difficult than most. But no matter how tough things are right now, we still give thanks for that most American of blessings, the chance to determine our own destiny. The problems we face didn’t develop overnight, and we won’t solve them overnight. But we will solve them. All it takes is for each of us to do our part.
With all the partisanship and gridlock here in Washington, it’s easy to wonder if such unity is really possible. But think about what’s happening at this very moment: Americans from all walks of life are coming together as one people, grateful for the blessings of family, community, and country.
So today, I’m thankful to serve as your President and Commander-and-Chief. I’m thankful that my daughters get to grow up in this great country of ours. And I’m thankful for the chance to do my part, as together, we make tomorrow better than today.
Thanks, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving."
Anyone who is finds a reason to complain about the content of President Obama’s Thanksgiving Speech is not being fair and or has other motives for their criticism. I thank God for President Obama and his vision of equality and justice for this nation. I am also thankful during this Thanksgiving weekend that we have a president who is willing to seek reelection after enduring relentless criticism and a media that reports many of those unworthy and unjust criticism as NEWS.
