President Obama Falls to Special Interest Groups

President Obama is definitely committing political suicide if he continues on the current vain. Does he realize that fully 60% of electorate want healthcare with a Public Option? Do the Democrats in the Senate realize that their political lives hang in the balance on this issue? How can they now side with the Republicans on health care after campaigning for real reform in health care?

President Obama is this change that we can believe in - shame on you? What about the problems your mother had with the insurance company on her death bed? Have you now yielded to the lobbyists? Why not let the bill die in the Senate and start over with your political integrity in tact?

Democrats have no political backbone - first it was the Banks now it's health care. Those 40 plus million uninsured Americans will be in the same boat if there's no public option. Who is going to pay for their insurance coverage? Republicans are running around the country lamenting that President Obama is changing their way of life and the Democrat controlled Senate is caving into the special interest because of fear.

Word to the wise, Mr. President you will be a one-term President if you fail to deliver on this one because you were given a mandate from the American people. It is doubtful that you can survive this kind of political blunder and deceive the people by siding with those spineless Democratic senators.

Obama - A Father's Promise to His Daughters

President-elect, Barack Obama wrote an open letter to his two beautiful daughters and like most of what he writes, it's very touching. He is a wonderful father, husband and man. A father wants good, better, best for his children and he wants to be available for them at every stage of their lives well into their grown-up years.

This writer was lucky to have a father just like Barack so I can recognize the good that he is in his words and he will do what he has promised to do because a good father never makes an unfulfilled promise. We, the American people have to commit to work with him to accomplish all the goals that he has set forth for us. We have to embrace his ideals and set out to realize the dream that has been promised to us.

The vision that he has of every child being challenge and inspired by schools, equal opportunity to go to college regardless of his financial circumstance is one that can be realize if we work hard together as parents and citizens to shape our own destiny.

We need to continue to pray for God's help to face life's struggles and the joy of knowing that with perseverance nothing is impossible. Mr. Obama's example is one that everyone can emulate to individual successes. This is an open call to all creative people, rappers, actors, writers and journalists that they owe it to our children to prevent all sides of the coin to prevent a balance approach.
