      Do you think that President Obama is Heaven Sent, a Gift from God put in this life to Save the Planet and create Peace in the Middle East??  To make all of our lives better? Do you think that OBAMA was BORN TO LEAD US???  

      Why do you think the Republicans are wishing him failure and are so against him? Are they Jealous??  

      Curious to know your thoughts!
      Thanks!  

      WORLD PEACE!!
      Kelly

        • At this point, I am proud that he is my president.  But he is not God, the pope, or anything similar.  He is a politician.  We are still in the 100-day honeymoon phase, so there is no way to know how effective he will be.  Actions will speak to that as time proceeds.

          I am pleased with the image he is projecting thus far.  That will have a positive impact on the “psychy” of our people, and what other nations think.  So for now, he is making a positive difference.

          But the job he has to accomplish, given the current challenges and the promises he made, may tarnish his image.  He has a very difficult job to do.  And he is going to step on some toes if he really creates sustaining change.  That will certainly diminish his popularity, and to some degree, his effectiveness.

          I wouldn’t want that job for anything!

        • You‘re kidding, right?  You cast a very wide net my friend and I personally have no clue where you‘re going with this. Maybe it’s a dum-dum day for me, sorry.  He’s our leader now and we should all support him whether we voted for him or not.

        • We are all heaven sent, that’s where our souls come from.  The only gift from God is his son, Jesus.  President Obama is only a man. Of course people are hoping he fails, there will always be haters hoping people fail in their endeavors.  No one can create peace in the middle east, nobody but Jesus.  Was he born to lead, yes, did he make all the right choices to get where he is, yes. Will he succeed, he already has.  Now we just need to do our part.

          Yes he is a great speaker, a great motivator, and is very charismatic, and now he represents USA, we should be more than proud to have such a strong, intelligent person representing the USA!  God Bless the world, not only the USA.

        • neicy, are you seeing “hate” in the posts here?  My interpretation is much deserved respect for him in the words in this thread.  Are you referring to other blogs?

          Just an honest question.  I’m not judging....

        • I have trouble believing any politician is a gift from god.  LOL  I’m hoping that he can accomplish some serious turn arounds in Washington, but honestly, my thoughs are that it will be business as usual.  Remember, the house and the senate have a lot of power too.

        • Yes, he has made a lot of promises and Yes he has made history... whether or not he will succeed in keeping the promises remains to be seen. He* does not run the government even if that *is what the majority thinks .  

          Sent from GOD... I have to agree with 3sa that we are all heaven sent, loved and known before we are born.  

          As far as a leader? Well he got to Washington... many believe he is a born leader yes, but he is just a man and people need to be careful HOW HIGH  on the pedestal they place him. Hu-MANs will fall, only Grace will pick them up.

          Just my humble opinion

        • Personally, i do not believe anyone is a ‘gift from God‘.

          Can he lead us out of this mess that both reps and dems got us into out of their greed, I think so. But it is not going to happen overnight.

          All we can do is support him and hope for a better tomorrow.

        • Just to add, nothing and I mean nothing is ever going to be right in the earth, its over the time is whining down, the world is in and shall remain in turmoil until Jesus parts the sky. If you really sit and look around from one end of the earth to the other the world is gone crazy so much sadness, hate, etc going on in every corner of this earth GOD is NOT pleased and he is allowing certain things to take place because his word has to be fulfilled before Jesus comes, I just say to those who don’t know him, or believe in him I recommend you repent and get a relationship with him because whether you believe in him or his word, you are still going to be judge by him and his word in the end “every knee shall bow, every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord“.

        • Neicy, your reaction with anger and resentment is an example of ignorance. We all have the right to an opinon and just because it differs from yours, doesn’t mean anyone is “hatin on” anyone.  Bringing up the topic of black never came to my mind and I just reread everyone else’s post and didn’t see any negative reference toward his creed. Since the population of America is still very low for African Americans, you can clearly see that the President was elected by a great number of different nationalities, not just Black Americans.  This post belongs in Politics, hoping I don’t regret my thoughts here.  Sent with love and prayers that you’ll think about what I’m saying.

        • Sorry, neicy, that I did not understand your choice of words.  My best friend is a black 40’s something lady.  She nevers uses hatin’ or other words you might call “our slang.”  Maybe it’s a regional thing, I don’t know.  But please forgive us for interpretting words differently than you mean them.  That’s what seems to be causing a lot of discord here.

        • Neicy, I voted for President Obama and did I mention that my first husband was a black man? He was killed in a motorcycle accident.

          I love all races and all people. I don’t use words like, “hatin on” or “pissed“. Words like this, used with rage, is what I’m talking about. If you want someone to listen to you and respect your thoughts, words and opinions, you have to come from a place of respect for othes. I think you are the one with the closed mind and are on the defensive.  If you come from a place in the light, you must be able to take the heat, a great quote from President Obama’s private sermon on election day.  I’m done here - slam as you may, I have nothing but compassion for you today and anyone else that feels they must use angry language to get their point across.

          There haters in every area. We just have to stand tall and band together.

          I think Obama is awesome. But, again change will not happen overnight.

          And, i’m thinking this needs to head over to politics as the ‘religious’ aspect was lost.

        • Ladies: Lips/ Annie where in my comments did I say anything about your being prejudice towards blacks, I said I get sick of P-E-O-P-L-E making ill comments about him there are people of all color, race etc that are doing it and I find it to be their ignorance, when you mske certain comments about a person character and you not even know them but go by what they say it says something about you the person what are you all about? Also ladies just for the record for those of you who claim that you like black or have had a relationship with them then you should learn some of our slang “Hatin” in this blog means “jealous” not saying you hate a person with evil. OK? LOL!!!

        • lipsdiva: You don’t have to learn slang (any races slang), but if someone uses it, as in this case, before making a comment or a judgement you could ask for clarification.  This is how you can effectively communicate your feedback and learn to understand different cultures.

        • Just remember to pray for your leaders everyday, they all could probably use it, and it will help them to make the right choices when it comes to our government and where it’s heading.This is a battle between good and evil, lets pray that Jesus will help us stand together during this time of crisis, and pray for peace.

          1- you have a new guy so fresh ideas in what are difficult times.
          2- he is intelligent and hightly articulate
          3- wish we had him in the Uk as our system is broken and corrupt and we could do with fresh eyes ...

          Hope he leads you out of this economic mess and helps sort out other problems ....

          As Dolly so eloquently puts it ...
          I’m just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair.
          Don’t be fooled by thinkin’ that the goods are not all there.

          I am not sure what President Obama has to do with religion, but I will put in my two cents on if he is a gift from God. I believe every life in existence is a gift from the divine. I think we all need to pray that God will touch our leaders and lead them to greatness for our country’s sake and for the sake of all of it’s citizens.
