So Miriam do you get a lot of questions about Obama?And do you speak your mind or do you try to not talk politics?
I actually don't get alot of questions about Obama. I am not so crazy about him. But I do find that its just too hard the times that I do want to talk about him people either love him too deeply -beyond reason - and so therefore he can do no wrong, and implying such puts you in some negative category. Or I find that they are so venomously opposed to him that they can't see reason or any good thing, they even make fun of his pants or some non-important thing.I think he's such a touchy subject hahaha. other than that, my sense is that he's clueless on alot of things, but he's a great speaker. To me he's like the anti-thesis in an essay. Its always good and proper to have an anti-thesis, but that can't be the president -the main point of the essay. The anti-thesis is meant to pull the conclusion to something more real for everyone. So maybe his time as president is like the anti-thesis being spoken out. Then the next president after him, must take into account his concerns and points and come to a decent conclusion. That said, I wonder if he is pro-Black Americans? I havent seem him do anything detrimental for them. Not really informed on that part.
I have to admit that he leaves me pretty starry-eyed. But I know he's far from perfect. I think a lot was expected of him - he's president, not king! Politics is quite a game. But I do like him.Kinda late jumping in. :)
hi CY,I also have a soft spot for him even though I am still weary of him.I do think he got an unfair share of criticism.
