Friday Morning Amazing...remember Obama has only been president a little over 5 weeks...and Change is Happening....really

Shower the People .......this video is from January 18th, 2 days before he was Our President...ALOT has happened in 37 days....

And what he said that day in front of the Lincoln Memorial.....

I wake up every morning grateful that we have a real Leader and not John McCain and SaraPee leading us through these hellish times....real leaders, educated thinking adults at the Helm are working everyday trying to help get us through this....There is Compassion and Reason in the WhiteHouse again for the first time in a long time...He has been working on all aspects of Our Broken Country Status...today at around noon he makes a big announcement about the Iraq Exit Plan in Camp Lejune Louisiana.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A Change is Gonna Come ...

And Bruce's "The Rising"....

( For some reason HBO is allowing the video from this day to be seen now, I only saw part of the performances that day so I am very grateful...and thankful they are sharing with we the people.)
More:::
John Mellencamp " Pink Houses"....

Ya gotta respect that he finally removed the rose colored glasses from the nations eyes.

Obama's not everything this left-leaning heart could want, but at least he's putting us back on the right road. No small task, after where the Reagan Republicans have taken us.

me...I am way left...is he left enough ? no ...but he is working hard on MANY messes left for him...and we are on the right road...and he is on the road with us, not a bunch of money hungry fearmongering warmongering greedy corporate criminals...and for that I am grateful...

this is VERY different than Bush....

Under Bush- McCain the Same....we would be in Iraq for another 10 years and Gitmo would never close....and the coffins would still be hidden...and torture would still be ongoing...

I still have hope...
more than I have had in 8 years , even though I am broke and worried...about all of us.

BTW ...
I watched Obama's speech today...
about bringing the Troops home..
and it dawned on me...
we have nothing to offer them-
no jobs, no housing...no loans for homes...
no healthcare...

So he must get the Economy going in the right way...
and Ironically the THING that broke us financially The Damn Iraq mess, then he must stabilize our path so that they can come home to some kind of jobs...

okay be back later...

I do feel a whole lot better about things whenever I hear one of Obama's speeches - I'm a bit more left then he is, but I realize he has a lot to balance, a lot more information at his fingertips, a lot more experts at his disposal, so for the most part I am not going to try and second guess him and will trust his decisions (of course that doesn't mean that I won't keep an eye out for red flags)

I was thinking the same thing about the troops - it is awesome they can come home - but I hope there is work for them. Perhaps there should be an incentive of some kind for businesses hiring veterans in the constructions projects, etc. He is providing gov't money for them to get an education which is helpful - but the jobs need to be there too.

It didn't take Obama long to break his most important campaign promise: ending the Iraq War. He wants to delay the partial withdrawal to 20 months (counting from when he took office which is when you are supposed to start counting from). Even worse, he wants to keep 50000 US troops slaughtering and oppressing the Iraqi people.

Obama is subjecting himself to the same risk of war crimes prosecutions that Bush, Cheney, Gates, Rumsfeld, and General Betray Us are subjecting us to. Sometimes it really seems like we are in a one party state determined to fatten the pockets of the rich and the corporations no matter how much damage is done to the country.

I just saw part of 'Right America: Feeling Wronged', an HBO doc by Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of Nancy.

Scary. Brain dead, zombie Republicans calling Obama a Socialist, a Communist. What is with these people? I hate to be a lefty mirror image of these Heartland Folks who somehow identify themselves with the rich politically corrupt criminal class that brought us war and economic disaster.

But these Palin Joe the Plumber worshipers are truly frightening. They hate. They bring mistrust to a new level. They are the true 21st Century Know-Nothings. Don't confuse them with the facts. They operate on a "faith-based" level in every sense of that phrase. They maintain faith in greed, a narrow-minded God and mindless patriotism that supports war as a solution to international problems.

God I am so glad we are rid of Bush. But we still have to contend with toxic politics in this country.
