5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Obama This Thanksgiving

November 21, 2012 at 5:00 am / by

1.  He is our first black President. As divisive and disappointing as his Presidency has been to many of us, his election is a symbol of just how incredibly far we’ve come as a nation. From Jim Crow to Barack Obama in less than 60 years is a testament to the American spirit and a wonderful reason to be thankful.

2.  With 73% of black American children being born to single-parent households, the foundations that have always signaled a more successful future have crumbled in black communities. Missing fathers have had an enormous impact of crime, confidence and economics. President Obama is the father of two young girls. He presents a wonderful example of family and fatherhood to a community of broken families.

3.  He has engaged more minorities in the political process – more specifically in urban centers. For too long people in those communities have viewed politics as something that happens TO them as opposed to BECAUSE of them. Thanks to Obama more minorities than ever are curious about the political process. Regardless of their voting preferences, this represents an enormous opportunity for both parties to articulate their messages to hungry hearts and win supporters.

4.  His (and his party’s) stated solutions to our national woes represent an opportunity for Republicans and conservatives to contrast their beliefs and platforms and articulate the value of the constitution and individual rights.

5.  He will only be President for four more years!

      ??? – it is not out of the realm of possibility that he will issue an executive order to override the constitution, and declare himself president / dictator / supreme being for life…

  2. America now has more new legal and illegal immigrants that changed the demographics of America who voted for King Obama and his social justice agenda. Now it is not what you can do for your country, now it is what my country can do for me. King Obamas Big Government Control will now destroy America, the republican party, replace the Surpreme Court with liberals and lesbians and anything else that stands in his way.
    I am sure glad I am not the only one that feels this way about King Obama and his plans for a new America. I just hope to God I am not around to see it.

    In my opinion, obama is a fraud, liar, treasonous sob that despises his own country and is doing his level best to strip the wealthy of their wealth, eliminate the middle class, and subjugate all of us to the rule of he and the uber-wealthy elite in some form of oligarchy. It is most unfortunate that this is who the United States has chosen as it’s first black President. In four more years, we will be fortunate if we are still a democratic republic.

    Blacks have segragated themselves. But why? Blacks were “named” African-Americans by a white guy, hummm. Blacks then took this freedom and created all kinds of avenues for blacks. Blacks only. They listened to hatred spewing pastors like Wright, Sharpton, Jackson jr, so forth and who are all paid by their listeners. Bush signed the Equal Opportunity doctrine, wonderful. All CRAP. There are no reasons to sign such a doctrine. Americans are anyone who believes in our way of life. obama took this info and captalized on every facet. SEPARATE but not equal. So it came down to GREEN. Money. obama givaways are legendary. obama phones, food stamps for everyone, money for everyone…6 trillion and counting. More and more……the forgotten entity is Blacks are Americans. Americans live under the Constituion. We live under the Constitution. Segrigation is sponcered by the govt. Programs to divide the masses. Control. Laws for one group. More control. THEN Absolute control. Bush signs…separate. obama signs…separate. Govt… separate. Not Constitutional. Martin Luther King jr said, “content of character” is an American. There is nothing past that. Nothing. So where is the American content of character. Voter fraud, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, illegals, lies, media cover ups, murder, UN propaganda, CONTROL.
    Americans pay taxes, there is no color except green. The govt doesnt care what the hell color you are. They demand green. Whites have businesses, blacks do too. Catholics work so do Jews.
    Here for Americans we know no boundaries. Here in Afghanistan we all bleed red.

    Davis is “in love with America”? Sounds to me like she’s ‘in love with Obama’. I wish the rest of you chicks luck, you just lost me.

    6) Because of Obama, I personally have become more engaged and greatly enlarged my circle of like-minded friends.
