Barack Obama is my President

I am not an American citizen but Barack Obama feels like my president, yes he is of African decent and so am I, but my admiration of him goes deeper than just the colour of his skin. He is a strong, hardworking, educated and successful man who has become a hero for millions of young people like myself. When I think about it he is “my” president, in the sense that he a role model, a person not blindly follow in the footsteps of but to learn from and emulate.

Reminiscing on my Visit to Washington DC

It feels good knowing that I was in Washington DC last year, visiting the same monuments like the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial which I saw live while watching the streaming of Inauguration day activities. It also feels good to not only recognize the names of but to have walked streets like Pennsylvania and Constitution Avenue mentioned and written about so often in Inauguration day coverage in the media.

There are still many people who dislike Obama and it’s sad but the real work for him has just begun but I wish him all the best and I am confident he will be one of America’s best presidents. I salute you President Obama!

  1. Barack is a very smart man and I am so happy and excited he is the President. I still get chills when I see pictures of him in the White House now. It is an amazing sight.

  2. It’s good that a black man is finally the president but I really disagree with his position on abortion.

  3. The fact of the matter is that you’re ”Black”.The Ugliest Color there could ever be for a human being.I’m sure you hate yourself when you look at yourself every morning.The only white thing about are your teeth.Deal with it.Internet fuzz has any meaning to you.I feel sorry for you i’m sure if you become a musician or something and not a living criminal you’ll get perhaps some respect in your life.But it sure sucks.Just look at how many bullets they use to stop you guys sometimes when you misbehaved or attack an officer of the law.I hope that someday day you won’t fill up the jails as you now do in most developped countries.Sucks ha!Good Luck mix’re sure blessed to not be a full black fellow.

  4. Great guy. Good post. Shame about the ignorant comment – but you get ignorant people everywhere you go in life, I suppose.

    I like that portrait of Obama by the way, you missed ‘cool’ from your list of descriptions.

    This guy could actually restore our (non-Americans) image of America once again. His Inauguration is the start of a new era for Black people all over the world – we now _know_ we can do anything we want to do, and be anyone we want to be. Big respect.

    One love.

  5. What a turd! i’m glad he left the comment cuz its important to remember that even as Obama moves into first place there are people who think in such terms. poor fellow, with such a dungheap for a mind he can’t do any better even though he clearly thinks his skin is superior.

    great shot of the great O! thanks for that__

  6. The funny thing about idiot comments is that they attract way too much attention. The funny thing about white racists is that when they’re finally dead and gone, nobody will give a rat’s ass.

    A great human is a great human. Skin color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, or preferences for white or red miso should make no difference to the excellence that exists inside (most of) us.

    Great pics :)

  7. Obama is an intelligent, charismatic human being. He doesn’t have any sort of inferiority complex. Someone like that can aspire to anything and achieve it. I’m happy that he was chosen. However i think too many people see him as the Messiah or something. I was listening to BBC’s World Have your Say last week and people called in from all over the world commenting on what they expected Obama to do for them.

    He is only one man and the best he can do is surround himself with intelligent people who plan to implement policies for the improvement of their country. He is not the president of the world. He won’t take office and money and equality will rain from the sky.

    People are frightened and when people are scared they try and hold on to a ray of light. But I hope these people understand that Obama can’t solve their problems overnight. I’m glad he emphasized the fact that the myriad problems wont be solved overnight. Maybe if he opens their eyes there wont be a backlash when their hero falls short of expectations.
