First off I want to thank the President and the First Lady for their hard work and beautiful speeches in Copenhagen. The team did a good job presenting Chicago.As much as Barack Obama and Michelle have put a new face on America....the World is Watching and they have seen much about America this year....and they also remember Bush.
And then this year ...What have they seen....Angry Republicans trying to block Obama at every move, on the airwaves acting like spoiled Children. The Tea Baggers and the Tea Party Protest in DC was seen around the world, and people were horrified by the photos. And they have seen the Truth about our Health Care Battle and how horrible that situation is, I have gotten letters and emails from all over, far away, asking HOW could our Country and Government let people die without Care.
WHO we are as a People and the Empathy Deficit has been seen by the whole world, and also the Greed and Ignorance by the Repugs and Blue Dogs has been seen....It is not up to Obama to change the past 8 years or the Current Hostile Toxic Political Environment.
I congratulate RIO it is time for South America to have this Opportunity.
Drunk Bush at China Olympics August 2008.....not that long ago.
