“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek…
“If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” ― Barack Obama
S – Super human
From chains to wielding the scepter of authority; a black man in the White House, he is the ‘word made flesh’, a prophecy fulfilled.
Many years ago, on August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a prophesy in a speech he titled “I Have a Dream”. To some, the ideas he spoke of sounded unrealistic, but on that day, a path was created;, an American civil rights activist sent an indirect message to a young black man; when his spirit received it, his journey to the White House started. Unbeknownst to him, he too was a bearer of a prophesy. He must look back on growing up and be amazed he made it so far. There were times he would doubt himself and be battered by life’s storms, but from a boy searching for mentors, he is now a mentor to other young boys searching for mentors. I present to you, my world’s greatest, POTUS, Barack Obama.
T – Tough
Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do! – Robert H. Schuller
Got elected into office at one of the toughest and challenging times in the history of America and the world at large.
In 2008, the people of America elected the most progressive president in history. And regardless of the negativity, when you actually look at the record, there has been a lot of progress since January 20, 2009.
Obama spoke with CNN’s Peter Bergen about the raid that killed the al Qaeda leader on May 2, 2011 – almost 10 years after the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.
During the interview, Bergen said that “the last person bin Laden saw on Earth was an American.” And Obama replied: “And hopefully, at that moment, he understood that the American people hadn’t forgotten the some 3,000 people who he killed.”
President Barack Obama has said that he hopes Osama bin Laden understood in his final moments that the “American people hadn’t forgotten” and wanted revenge for the atrocities of September 11, 2001.
Bin Laden died at the hands of U.S. Navy SEALS who had stormed the compound in Pakistan where he had been hiding for years.
The Obama administration had used it as a poignant example of the president’s willingness to act aggressively against terror, despite usually maintaining a more cautious foreign policy.
U – Unequalled
And what else has Obama done to have such an impact?
On his first full day, he froze White House salaries for the duration of the Great Recession and in his first week, he signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts in order to combat waste and abuse. He created the post of Chief Performance Officer, whose job it is to make operations more efficient and to save the federal government money. He committed to phasing out unnecessary and outdated weapons systems and signed the Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act in an attempt to limit waste, fraud, and abuse in the defense procurement and contracting systems. If he were in a boxing ring he would deserve more than a standing ovation. God bless Obama, and God bless America.
P – Proactive
With no father or other family members to serve as role models (his relationship with his white grandfather was difficult), Obama later reflected, “I was trying to raise myself to be a black man in America, and beyond the given of my appearance, no one around me seemed to know exactly what that meant.” Considering where he started from, having utopian thoughts about America, his spirit had solutions to the problems that would face him as POTUS in the future.
Obama began to formally create his presidential footprint during his first 100 days. Obama quickly began attempting to foster support for his economic stimulus package, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The bill passed in the House on January 28, 2009 by a 244–188 vote, and it passed in the Senate on February 10 by a 61–37 margin. Obama stated that he should not be judged by his first hundred days: “The first hundred days is going to be important, but it’s probably going to be the first thousand days that makes the difference.”
I – Ingenious
Now, as a nation, we don’t promise equal outcomes, but we were founded on the idea everybody should have an equal opportunity to succeed. No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, you can make it. That’s an essential promise of America. Where you start should not determine where you end up. – Barack Obama
He is not just the first black president but the first to do the following with proofs:
Became the first president to stream every White House event, live. http://1.usa.gov/kAgOP5
Held the first-ever first online town hall from the White House, and took questions from the public. http://bit.ly/gVNSgX
He appointed the first Federal Chief Information Officer to oversee federal IT spending and efficiency. http://www.cio.gov
Established a central portal for Americans to find service opportunities. http://www.serve.gov
I could go on and on and on; he is a god among men.
D – Demigod
What more can qualify a man as god?
A loving father to his children, best friend to his wife, a friend to his subordinates, a mentor to growing young men, hope to the hopeless, a victor in his challenges, the most powerful man on earth, yet a simple man in all his ways.
You will forever live in hearts of all as a god among men.
