To these people, provided the "NIGGER" is "evicted" from their White House, it does not matter if the white replacement that goes into occupation thereafter is as mean, uncaring, clueless, untrustworthy and out of touch as Mitt Romney. During this political campaign circle, Icheoku has witnessed this "white Mitt Romney can do no wrong" attitude in America political discuss with the less intrusive inquiry into Mitt Romney's religious beliefs. There was no concerted or forensic examination of Mitt Romney's Mormon religion affiliation by main stream American media; unlike the barrage of criticism and "anal probe" carried out on then candidate Obama and which still continues till today within American political discuss. Till this day, talking-heads Americans still question whether President Obama is a Muslim, a secret agent of the Islamic world here to destroy America, who stayed in Pastor Jeremiah's church for twenty years and wonder if indeed the president really goes to church or truly worships. But now Mitt Romney, a Mormon, whose religion has always been held out as a CULT, is freely running the range without even the media shouting a question across to him on his MORMON faith. No one is asking to know what type of doctrine the Mormons espouses or whether Mitt Romney's Mormon believes will impact his presidency or influence his decisions if elected? No, not any one of these journalists or pundits is seeking to know what Mitt Romney's religion truly is all about and whether their beliefs is good for America. Even the "America pastor" so called, Bill Graham, recently took down a page in his church's website where he previously denounced Mormon as a cult and you wonder what other explanation for this herded support for Mitt Romney is other than their anti-Obama sentiment fulled by race.
Even the last Mitt Romney foreign policy burnish(ment) overseas trip which was literally botched by the candidates mediocre performance hardly sustained any traction within the American media. Needless to mention the negative-undertone of the media during the very successful then candidate Barack Obama similar overseas trip. Icheoku understands and so are millions of other honest Americans who know that race is a huge factor driving the narratives of this two candidates. Further, if Mitt Romney is such a good "economist" who will magically turn America's economy around and overnight, which is probably the only other factor driving his campaign being a former businessman, Icheoku queries, why didn't Mitt Romney foresee that the bailout of the auto industry was a good, humane and profitable thing to do and that the investment would eventually pay off as it has now? Political economics is and should not be a Monday night quarterbacking so Icheoku is emphatic that Mitt Romney should be made to pay a price for abandoning the millions of American families who are dependent on the auto industry when he callously asked that the industry go bankrupt. Icheoku really does not buy into the hype of "economic genus" nonsense that is being ascribed to Mitt Romney and as person who has personally run a business before, Icheoku knows that there is a big daylight between issuing instructions top-down and carrying everybody along. As a CEO, you just issue marching orders with one objective in mind, to meet the bottom-line which is in direct opposite to the role of a democratically elected president, who must endeavor to carry every person along, arm-twisting and cajoling an ever unwilling, highly partisan congress in order to move his policies an inch. So while a person with some business background would make a good Commerce secretary as well as Secretary of the Interior, someone without much ego who could "wash the car and walk the dog of the opposition party leaders," if that is what it will take to get things done, is much more suited and preferred for the office of the president.
President Obama ordinarily ought to and should be clearly ahead and leading his opponent by so far a wide margin in Ohio were things rightly considered and both candidate fairly judged based on their antecedents. Except that racism still thrives and is still very much alive in America, hence the inexplicable close race America is witnessing in Ohio between the two candidates. It would seem that doctrine of quid pro quo is alien to and does not exist in Ohioans' dictionary; and you wonder why no previous American president seriously wants to tackle the big issues and solve real problems until now. They would rather as was the practice, kick the can down the road and just play along in order to get along because as the whole world is now seeing, Americans are somehow shallow and would not remember, reciprocate a favor; or rather conveniently choose to forget who it was that got their back when it mattered most. Icheoku says, if Ohioans were a thinking bunch, Mitt Romney would be chased out of the state each and anytime he shows up there for campaign because he was not there for Ohio when it mattered most and when their economic survival was on the firing line. Mitt Romney, cannot and should not be allowed to be a selective "friend" of Ohioans only when it is convenient, with him thinking that Ohioan had forgotten that he prescribed a poison pill for them during the height of the economic turmoil in America. Ohioans, like other sensible Americans should desire a friend indeed who will stand with them when the going is tough and not sacrifice them on the alter of political expediency. Icheoku says Ohioans OWE President Obama big time and alongside the world, is waiting for Ohioans to write the president a big check with their VOTES this November 6, 2012 in repayment.
In Florida we have also seen thousands of Jewish Americans still strung out against the president despite all he has done to ensure Israeli security more than any other United States president living or dead? These Jews in Florida would rather throw their destiny in the hands of the same Mormon bishop Mitt Romney, who as a governor of Massachusetts, cut off funding for Jewish elderly seniors' Kosher meals? So let some Jewish person in Florida explain this to Icheoku that a man who has showed some averse behavior to the Jews in Massachusetts would not extend same to Jews everywhere and anywhere in America, including in Florida? Same goes for Michigan, Wisconsin and many other American states where the president's reelection effort is not enthusiastically receiving the much needed support it has rightly earned and thus deserves.
It is, what it is; and as far as Icheoku is concerned, it does not and should not matter any more whatever be the outcome of this election. So if on November 7 we wake up to a Mitt Romney's presidency, we shall understand that racist white Americans eventually had their way - they have reclaimed "their" White House? Icheoku, together with all and every other persons of faith hereby binds over and decrees that such a nightmarish outcome shall not be America's portion in Jesus name. However if and the very unfortunate if situation, it happens, then let it be known that no minority can and shall ever become president of America again and not in the next millennium as the white people of America will go to a great length to frustrate such from ever happening again. Anyone in doubt should take a look at the United States senate where no minority occupies any seat in a 100-seat senate chamber and you tell Icheoku the white Americans would not spend the capital of a Romney's presidency trying to shore up against their fast dwindling (majority) population in America? Still wondering why these Republicans want all raped women to have those rape-babies - to augment their population, may be? Still wondering why the hung-up Republicans want to see the "breeding-rabbits" Hispanics self-deport? Still wants to know why the racist Republicans want to lock up so many viral black-men away in prisons and string some of them on the gurney and have lethal barbiturates injected in them? It is just to make it fair and increase their own (white) chances in competing for populating America and thus retain their majority status, period. But President Obama is in the way and OUT they must get him; except that these racist have another thing coming and that is that they are already in the minority and Americans will resist them come November 6.
We are talking about entrenched racism which cuts across every strata of the American society, manifests and exists everywhere, including in industries, banking, judiciary, politics, commerce and law enforcement. It is an open wound which is still festering in America and only the Almighty would say when it is going to end as Americans are continuously pulling apart to their respective racial enclaves each day for security and comfort.
During the first presidential debate, it was generally agreed that Mitt Romney trumped Obama. Some white people were overtly ecstatic, congratulating themselves, patting each other's back and slapping themselves hi-five that their Mitt smoked "That One" in the debate. Some of them even suggested that President Obama was so doped and very high on something and forgot the real Barack Obama in the White House; that President Obama only brought his phenom and body-double to the debate and was not present in the debate. Even Icheoku cried holy molly about the president's lackluster performance in the first debate and went to the extent of blaming it on possibly a wife's trouble? Obama, being the sportsman he is, took the message in, went back to the locker room and came out charging and demolishing Mitt Romney in the two subsequent debates that followed. But what followed was atypical of the real America, an America which is hidden to the outside world where a black-man is portrayed as ever ANGRY and intimidating; admitted none of these white people ever asks why? Instead of congratulating the president for being a "come-back kid", they said he was too "aggressive, mean and threatening" to their "gentle and harmless" Mitt Romney? They accused President Obama of taking the sledge-hammer to their "tiny ant" Mitt, who was so scared and intimidated by President Obama that he forgot his lines? They accused the president of belittling the office of the president and of being obtrusively "patronizing," whatever that means? They intoned that Obama was not "presidential" in the debates? Further, that President Obama stooped very low in engaging Mitt Romney and decisively holding The Mitt accountable for his past records of double-speak and numerous flip-flops on so many issues dear to America? They continued that President Barack Obama pummeled and Mike Tyson(ed) frightened chihuahua Mitt Romney in the two final debates and because of his "overreaching" that he is disqualifies to be reelected for a second term? To these rabid white folks, Icheoku asks, what exactly did Mitt Romney do in that first debate to earn him a win, but attack President Obama endlessly and albeit falsely?
But hell no, in America, a white man can do no wrong whenever a black-man is at the receiving end. No, they are a specially privileged people, ordained by their God to mete it out to black people and other minorities of America as they seem and dim fit? To them the black-man is here to "serve them tea" following their liberation from indentured servitude of slavery and therefore must and should automatically know their place which is definitely not "their" White House. So if on November 7, you wake up to a President-elect Romney, please do not cry or mourn, just understand that the white people of America have taken back "their" White house. To these people it does not matter whether they sacrificed the best face of America to the world or a real breathing and thriving manifestation of the proverbial American dream; and traded him for a dumbo who does not understand the geography between Iran and Syria as well as so many other elementary things. Afterall the same people elected George Bush twice and were prepared to have and put up with him for eight agonizing long years, stammering through the English Language, his only lingua franca. So what the heck if they elect a Mitt Romney, a Mormon, who would not or has refused to release his tax records and has been very secretive about his other past records and activities, including his governorship in Massachusetts, a state which ironically he is not campaigning in because he knows the fate which awaits him there based on his stewardship as their then governor. To this people, it also does not matter that neither Mitt Romney nor his five boys ever served in the military and thus lacked the national security credentials? That Mitt Romney did not visit our troops during his bungled overseas candidate's tour nor mentioned them during his acceptance speech at the Tampa Republican convention?
All Icheoku is saying is that the rest of the world, which thinks that they have had it with America and their George Bush; and that America finally got it right with President Obama, would see a Mitt Romney's "imposition" as a direct affront to them and the heavens will once again come thundering down with their resentment. America's president is technically president of the world at large based on the enormous power and influence it wields over world affairs; little wonder a German parliamentarian once opined that the rest of the world should be allowed to partake in electing an American president or somewhat allowed a say in who becomes American president since he is always going to tell them what to do, short of ordering them around? Russia is anxiously waiting, China is prancingly waiting and so is the Middle East as well as other hot spots of the world to press their respective resentment buttons and restart where they stopped hating America with George Bush? Icheoku queries which American wants all these hassles and unneeded tension and an apprehensive world banded together in their common resentment of America again? Icheoku honestly does not think that all these foreseeable problems and many more are worth electing Mitt Romney without more, other than that he is a white man? Instead, America should keep "That One" who is currently occupying "their" White House, who happens to be "tanned" or should Icheoku say a NIGGER, because the world is at peace with us because of him. Also he has earned a second term because of the many formidable things he has accomplished within his very short four years first term and would readily do more if reelected.
Icheoku says however and in the sad unfortunate event America did not or failed to do right by reelecting President Obama for a second term, America will survive. President Barack Obama, whether or not he is retained in the White House will survive and so will his family - he and his family will be just fine. His history shattering record of being the first black man and a minority to be ever elected America's president will indelibly occupy its enviable place in the annals of history and no two-horned white people can wish or decree it away. The real person and people that would be shafted would be the American people, especially the 99% as well as the 47%, whom Romney has publicly acknowledged he does not care about. So America, either you wake up and smell the coffee or slumber and awake to the nightmare and impending catastrophe that is a Mitt Romney's presidency. If you think George Bush was a disaster then you are looking at a Dick Cheney and Bush combined on steroids with a Romney's presidency, so don't midwife the apocalypse.
A man who inherited the worst economic crisis since the great depression is now being chased out of the White House just because he did not fix the economy fast enough and overnight? The same man who plugged a 800,000 monthly job loss hole in the economy, created additional 5 million new jobs, killed Osama Bin Laden, saved the auto industry, repaired our relationships around and with the world, ended 'don't ask don't tell' discriminatory policy in the military, made healthcare available to millions of Americans including those with preexisting condition who can now get health coverage, removed world dictators without any American military dying in the process, carried out Wall Street financial reforms, ended Iraq war with Afghanistan's in the course to a meaningful conclusions, kept Americans safe these past four years and put an end to the unnecessary code this and code that warning alerts that increased tension in the land, invested in education and technological needs of Americans as well as numerous other laudable achievements, all within just four years? Simply put, those of us minorities of America who live through discrimination daily in America, understand what time it is; and that time is that a black-man is not and would never be good enough in the jaundiced eyes of these bred of Americans and his accomplishments not worthy of reckoning by these racist white folks.
Yes, that is the real America, the America not known to the outside world where people are still judged not by the content of their character or their God given ability but mostly by the color of their skin. President Barack Obama is a victim of this skewered racial society which has failed or rather refused to see the many good things he has done this past four years. They also failed to acknowledge his goal-directed effort to improve every body's general well-being instead of the just few one percent; and he is being judged harshly, wrongly and with prejudice by these racist Americans. So if on November 7, you woke up and Obama is no longer the president, do not cry; just remember that his not being reelected was not because he did not do enough or earned the right to a second term; nope, it is because in America, racism is still very much alive and thriving till this day. Put in another way, it would be because the white people have simply taken back their White House and it does not matter to them that a pig is the new occupant provided that pig is white. Before you ask but what about 2008, Icheoku in response reasserts that Senator John McCain lost the election when he chose Sarah Palin, period.
Conversely, if America rose up to the occasion and vote rightly and correctly, by electing President Obama for a richly deserved second term, Icheoku with the rest of the anxious world would breath a sigh of relief that America rose above their mundane racism and did the right thing. Like Colin Powell said while endorsing Obama for a second term, Mitt Romney is not a palatable alternative; Mitt Romney is not a good trade nor a viable option for Obama as he (Mitt) stands for nothing and believes in nothing; moreso those Neo-Con vultures around him would hijack his presidency and among other things plunge America into another unnecessary war we could ill afford; as well as implement such other anti-society policies like gutting education and depriving millions of America their health coverage under Obamacare. Remember, unlike Obama who cares, Mitt Romney does not care a hoot about the less fortunate Americans and then ask yourself why help put a man who is so heartless, ruthless and completely indifferent to the plight of millions of Americans as Mitt Romney in the White house? America, Icheoku says we have a choice to make this November 6, we have a choice to vote to protect our interest, we have a choice to vote to prove we are in the majority - the 99 % that is. This November, ELECT President Barack Obama for a second term to enable him finish and complete the good works he has already begun. In President Barack Obama we, the 99 percent as well as the 47 percent trust; in President Barack Obama, our fate lies and together we must and shall ensure that a man with compassion, integrity and proven empathy retains the White house for our sake and the sake of America's enduring future. This is our cause, this is Icheoku's pledge and together we shall have the job done come election day, November 6, 2012; and in unison exclaim once again, YES WE DID! With this, Icheoku solemnly endorses President Barack Hussein Obama for a second term. Vote America, Vote Obama.
