Obama … the honeymoon is over.

One year into his first term President Barack Obama is flirting strongly with becoming a “one hit wonder” like former President Jimmy Carter. Unpopular fiscal bailouts of AIG and auto makers General Motors and Chrysler are but a few of the decisions which will haunt him as he seeks to add equally unpopular health and national security proposals to the agenda.

It has become painfully clear that the only thing that can get prompt attention in an Obama administration is uncontrolled spending ultimately at the expense of poor and middle class people. Given the way things are going over-all there will be little difference between the two shortly.

Supporters of Obama have constantly blamed former President Bush for everything but that must all end. There has been plenty of time and opportunity for Obama to be judged on his own merits. Judge him we must if this country is to endure.

Does the Caroline Kennedy endorsement for Obama signal the end for Hillary Clinton?

Barack Obama has blazed to a South Carolina victory but along with that he picks up a prized endorsement.

 

The most note worthy and to me the most important endorsement to date comes on the heels of Dr. King’s birthday observance and the haunting memory of his “I Have a Dream” speech.

President John F. Kennedy’s daughter, Caroline Kennedy, has formally endorsed Barack Obama today bringing to bear an even bigger force than Oprah! The memories of the late John and Bobby Kennedy legacy to America.

The fat lady is not singing yet but we are definitely heading into a Super Tuesday primary that is taking on an even more super meaning.

Have we finally arrived at the time Dr. King referred to? The day when we as African Americans will be judged on the content of our character, and not on the color of our skin? God only knows but I sure pray so for us all!
