In the first song Jimi Hendrix wrote upon moving to England in 1966 tittled "Stone Free," he said, "They talk about me like a dog. Talkin about the clothes I wear. But they don't realize they're the ones who's square."

PRESIDENT OBAMA OF REPUBLICANS, "THEY TALK ABOUT ME LIKE A DOG!"
Icheoku says may be President Obama instead of just stopping at "they talk about me like a dog", would have used the entire lyrics emphasizing that it is the Republicans and their Christian far right wingers that are really "squared up" that a black man is occupying their White House and have vowed to do everything and anything to get him out. To these folks, the end justifies the means, and provided he goes, it does not matter if it means opposing all and every of his intended legislation beneficial to the American people and geared towards getting the economy out back on tracks. Their agenda, 'just get the nigger out of "their" White House and take "their" government back from "That One!"
President Obama pointed out that "some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time are behind the unceasing criticism of his government's agenda; many of who see them as no longer beneficial to their government as usual laisse-faire. That they're not happy with him to the extent that they will oppose anything once Obama's name is attached to it. For example, if he said the sky was blue, they'd say no. If he said fish live in the sea, they'd say no just for the heck of opposing the president which has earned the Republicans the acronym, "The Party of No".
However the jury is going to be the American people and Icheoku hopes and prays they get it right this time; provided they did not suffer from a debilitating amnesia before November so that they would properly recollect where the original source of the problem is - the eight years President George Walker Bush led Republican melt-down. Except, like the religious zealots they are they are literally expecting President Obama to rebuild the temple of a devastated economy within just three days (18months); an economy that took President George Bush eight long years to drive aground. But whatever turns out to be the case, only one possibility is assured - either Americans eventually did forget how bad it was then or that they decided to call off the Republican bluff as the architect of the original economic miasma which subsists till today. It was their President GW Bush who said, "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me;" and Icheoku waits to see how really smart and discerning the American voter is come November. Until then, the jury stays out.
