Obama - A Leader that Comes Along Once in a Lifetime

Tonight I write to you my fellow blog-itos to share in my hope and joy that finally we will see America become an enviable nation again. After experiencing the magnaminous charisma of our 44th president in all it's glory I am overwhelmed with hope and faith that with his new laser-beam focus that we may possibly get out of this mess the W has left for us all.
Obama, being the LEO that he is (born august 6th) and left handed (Clinton was both), without a doubt proved tonight that he can lead, that he has the drive, energy and courage to forge new relationships across party lines turning his opposers into allies by finding the common ground of our love for this great country. He rises above the emotion and ping-pong-bickering that has stalled our country so badly that it resembles a Yugo in a junkyard. If he can deliver on his monumental and historic promises tonight, he will be the leader that can take us out of this black hole of despair, our modern day JFK. Obama delivered a speech so electrifying and inspirational that it caused both parties to stand up in ovation not only to applaud him but agree with his points. In a room that never sees such positvity and electricty, tonight was as lively and joyous as a Superbowl after party. The United States was the winner of this Superbowl and our coach was Obama.

Now, 3 years before the theorized end of the world 2012, is the time for this change. Like an alcoholic that can't buck an addiction until hitting rock bottom, we are by most accounts, at ground zero as a nation. Now that the cause for change is an economic one and not a political one, we have a once in a lifetime window of opportunity and flexibility by both parties to completely shift the focus from fear-based decisions and reform this country with a new found spirit. Obama has reminded us what it should mean to be an American by showing two shining examples of public consciense and social responsibility. He invited a young student named Ty'Sheoma Bethea that wrote to Congress to help save her crumbling school and a shining star of a Miamian, Jew and businessman Leonard Abess Jr. who gave back 60 million of his personal proceeds from the sale of his bank to all employees on his payroll (even the ones that had left the bank). These exemplary Americans remind us all that America is not completely filled with selfish fatcats and that a new conscience is being ushered in and sponsored by a leader with his heart in the right place and his mind focused on what needs to be corrected.

I do believe the end of the world will come by 2012 as the Mayans have prophesied, only it will be the end of the world as we know it with a new one being born. One where people are more important than profit margins, where education and science are once again of primary importance as they were in ancient Greece and the relationship to mother Earth is once again a loving one and not one of an abusive alcoholic curmudgeon husband. It certainly felt like a new world was being born today, just in time to be in full effect by 2012.

Thank you Obama...for the hope and change that you bring.

You know, Eric. It's you that gives me hope. This post reminds me that no matter what happens today, there is always hope for tomorrow. I need to be reminded of that sometimes. And you did that. This post? ME pegó hasta el corazón, y me inspiró dentro al fondo de mi alma. Steve Tabárez

Eric, this is great. I'm 100% pro-Obama. Even the ones that did not support him have afith in him.
Yep, this is everything about hope; but hope does not come free. We have to work harder, go the extra our lives, our goals, or work...
I'm a believer in a better world. I will start doing my part.
