ATTACKS ON OBAMA, 99% PERSONAL.
Icheoku says anyone who has lived in racist America understands fully well what underlying factor is particularly fueling the virulent attack on President Barack Obama and which has remained incessantly unabated ever since he was sworn in as 44th president of the United States of America. IT IS RACISM, period. So many white Americans have not and cannot get a handle around the fact that a "NIGGER" is their president and is occupying "their" White House. Admitted that the economy has not fully recovered, but at least it has left the ICU where the former administration checked it into and it can only be forward movement to full recovery thenceforth. But for these people, it does not matter and even if the economy were to recover like it is on steroid, they would still find a reason to crisis and demonize the president. Like they gave credit for killing Bin Laden on the previous administration, were the economy to bounce back, they would give kudos to George Bush because a "Nigger" can never do right by these folks especially when the "Nigger" went against the grain and is "usurping" their White House?
These folks see and turn red literally speaking, each time they turn on their television sets or tune their radio and hear the name President Barack Obama being mentioned as the president. We live it daily and all minorities of and in America will gladly attest to the daunting heavy load, being a minority in America is, regardless of how successful such minority is or not. Even Chris Rock once joked how a poor white trash gets preferred treatment than some black guy like him with all his millions and you wonder shouldn't America be color blind by this 2012? So it does not matter what President Obama does or accomplishes, in these peoples eyes, he is simply not a "fit" and "proper" person to be occupying the White House; which one hick once told me was renamed the White House for a reason.
Icheoku says Hank Williams Jr. speaks for majority of Obama haters and bashers alike, many of who are rather coy about publicly airing what their contrived heart churns each time and every time concerning President Obama being in the White House. An unapologetic redneck who once compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler has now gone full throttle to categorically state that "they, his ilks of White Americans, hate OBAMA." Icheoku must say that so many White Americans though appreciate the good work President Obama is doing but would rather see a paler-skinned man in the White House than the "tanned" current occupier. In the words of rabid Hank Williams Jr., speaking of President Obama, he said "We've got a Muslim for a president who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him!"
Icheoku reiterates that the same President Obama who they accuse of being a disciple of Reverend Jeremiah Wright and a permanent fixture at his church, spending over twenty years therein is still being branded a MUSLIM? To this people being a Muslim is a crime and you wonder whether the freedom of religion enshrined in the constitution was somehow qualified to be 'as long as it is a Christian religion?' They said he hates cowboys and cowgirls yet many of his cabinet secretaries are cowboys and cowgirls including Ken Salazar and Kathy Sibelius who comes from Kansas of all places, speaking of cow towns and honky-tonky girl? They said he hates fishing and farming yet no president has ever supported farmers and fishermen alike more than this president and one of his most trusted friend Vilsak is in charge of the Agriculture department? Now he is being accused of "loving gays" and you wonder what is it that he is accused of that is different from the teaching of our Lord and Master Jesus about not calling unholy what our God has made or the physician being here for those who are sick and not those who are well. But if Icheoku may ask, what is wrong in loving God's own children equally without boundaries or demarcation just because of who someone chose to love?
They have accused the president of MURDER (the blood on his hand comment). Hank Williams Siamese twin Rush Limbaugh once accused President Barack Obama of "murdering" Somalia pirates. They have accused him of palling with terrorists. They have accused him of being a communist, a socialist, a re-distributor in chief, fascist, anarchist and all manner of despicable things with which they masquerade their racist disdain for the president. They have also accused him of not being an American which Mitt Romney recently hinted on too. They have accused the president of being a mole for some astral forces readying to destroy America as we know it. Icheoku is pissed off at the level of acerbity these people have descended into and their asinine barrage of attacks directed at the president forces one conclusion - majority of them are not because of his job performance but rather personal. These attacks are coming just because President Obama looks somewhat different from the "usual and normal" occupier of the White House.
But no matter the outcome of this November election, the fact of the matter remains that a "NIGGER" has occupied "their" White House as president and not millions of Hank Williams or Rush Limbaughs of racist America right-wing can change or wipe clean that feat. So if comes November, these BACKWARD thinking and HURRAY-it-is-deja vu 1950 again Americans succeed, the only people that will actually suffer or hurt are those hapless Americans President Obama is trying so hard to level the playing field for. It will not be Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan or Hank Williams or Rush Limbaugh or even the President himself. No these people are going to be okay no matter what. So if Americans are persuaded by bitterness and hatred and tonnage of lies to VOTE AGAINST THEIR INTEREST, so be it and we shall all survive. America will endure no matter who wins in November; but Icheoku implores these hate-mongers to please wisen up and remember it is 2012 America, life is dynamic and America has since moved on without them.
Governance is not just about the economy, which this president has done a lot already. It is about foreign policy, it is about defense, it is about America's safety. It is about world relationships, it is about carrying everybody along, it is about boarder security, it is about fairness (abolition of don't ask don't tell), it is about compassion, it is about being your brother's keeper and in all these departments President Obama has performed creditably well. He has also kept America safe and gravely wounded Al-Queida as an organisation. This is the reason the other side is not going anywhere near these his accomplishments but are pigeonholed in just one area - the slow but steadily recovering economy. But unlike John Kerry's swift boating, many civilized and knowledgeable Americans shall and must not allow the Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to get away with pulling a wool over their eyes or allowed to run against a fictional Obama without accomplishments. President Obama deserves a second term because he is razor-sharp focused on continuing to move America FORWARD and in the right direction. A Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan adventure would be reliving the nightmare that was George W. Bush/Dick Cheney administration all over again. Let us allow President Obama to finish what he has begun as his second term will see a lot more being accomplished and this opportunity must not slid past us. VOTE for maintaining the FORWARD trajectory, VOTE for BARACK OBAMA. HE gets it ; and he has rightfully and merituosly earned a second TERM.
