Okay, come clean. Give it up. We, at Stevieslaw, are starting to really like Barack Obama again—we suspect you are too. Sure, he is not FDR or HST or even JFK, but he’s hardworking, sane and has had to deal with a really bad hand dealt by a really bad bunch in DC.
And now that he is in campaign mode, he is really easy to like. He may not do Presidential well, but he is one super campaigner. The guy just seems so genuine and so sincere that we can feel the hope well up inside us more and more with every passing day. And, he is helped enormously by his warm, welcoming wife and two pretty perfect children. Starting to feel the love?
But the thing Obama does best on the campaign trail is to drive the Republicans crazy. They spend all their time being anti-Obama, even when there is nothing much to be anti about. And the people they end up nominating. He had them so frazzled in 08 that they let themselves nominate an old guy with a visible chip on his shoulder and a bobby-doll knockoff from Alaska with the nickname, ditz. This time they’ll go with someone who doesn’t believe in evolution, women’s rights, or global warming. Perhaps, they will find some joker who rents a stadium, so his followers can pray for rain. Or, someone with so poor a knowledge of American History that an eighth grade civics class would be more than a challenge.
So, break out the comfortable shoes—come the summer, we will all be going door to door, writing checks, making phone calls and talking up that “hopey” stuff again. Best get used to the idea now.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. Hey! I’m at work searching around your website from my new phone! Just wanted to say I luv reading your read and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the high-minded work!

  3. You know it’s not all about money, there’s something else to be gleaned from this financial crisis we’re in the middle of.
