I’m Trying

I watch and listen and think and wonder and then watch and listen and think again, seeking hope on hope that this president will reveal something to make me honor him.  I keep coming up empty.  His speech on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech had minor moments but was flat and uninspiring.  Either you’ve got it or you don’t.  Martin Luther King had it.  Barrak Hussein Obama does not.  King could have been a statesman, he was well on his way, but his brilliant life ended prematurely and tragically.  When is the African American community going to produce a man of his caliber…someone who can carry them out of the cesspool of poverty and be a uniter, not a divider.  Certainly not Barak Obama or Jesse Jackson or the race baiting, hate monger, money grubbing egocentric Al Sharpton.  Contrary to what the race hate peddlers would have all of us believe, whites want black Americans to succeed and they want them to succeed learning the same principles of hard work, honesty, loyalty, education and self-sufficiency that built this great nation.
