Being the first minority president of America, many people are expecting you to fail just to say "I told you so!" Will you let them beat their chests in triumph? Icheoku says "we don't think so"! We have keenly followed you since your introduction to America by Senator John Kerry in Boston 2004; throughout the Democratic party's primaries and the presidential campaign proper, our eyes were fixated on you. We were encouraged by the way you frontally shot down Reverend Jeremiah Wright's and such other controversies and with dignified grace. We were encouraged also by the way you carried yourself throughout the period under reference, even when you were down and when you were up. Also we are satisfied with the cabinet you have so far put together, admitted we would have preferred a less of the Clintons in it, but we are trusting that your judgment once again, is a right one. So if you preside with the same dexterity you have so far displayed, Icheoku says, your presidency will be one heck of a presidency! Govern, you must, from day one as anything short of it, will be unacceptable to us, the American people! As you already know, there is no second chance for minorities in America, so be our trail-brazing accomplisher!
You must also know that temptations will be abundant, some of them simply to discredit you. They will come in all sizes, all manners, all shapes and all forms, from every direction and subtleties; BUT we shall not accept any excuses from you for succumbing, because you have been warned! Women, drugs, money, favors, bribe, blackmail, etc will all be used to bait you. If in doubt, ask Marion Barry the former Washington DC mayor who was nabbed in a drug-sting operation. If in doubt, ask Governor Blagojevich of your home State of Illinois of his trying to sell your former senate seat! If in doubt, ask Bill Clinton about Monica's blue dress! If in doubt, by clairvoyance ask Richard Nixon about Watergate! If in doubt, by the same means, ask Ronald Reagan about Iran-Contra gate scandal! And the list goes on and on, ad infinitum!
To a leader-president of America, Icheoku says, God's speed! President Barack Hussein Obama, the work ahead is laden but succeed, you shall! Every man and woman of goodwill should please, attend a party today to mark a very important milestone in American history - a black-man is the PRESIDENT! Hail to the chief! Long live the Obamas and may the Almighty God protect your presidency in Jesus name, Amen! God bless America!
