Obama as President

By November 5, 2008 Pardon 2 Comments

This post has absolutely nothing at all to do with pardons or criminal records but waking up this morning to a new American president was such an enormous relief that I feel compelled to share my thoughts.

Is it just me or did the entire planet breath a deep sigh of relief when John McCain failed to secure the whitehouse for the Republicans? Is the whole world relieved that an era of disasterous social and economic policy is (hopefully) at an end? And is everyone as excited as I am to see the great American nation live up to its promise?

Because the American promise to the world is that anything can happen. The American promise to the world is that anyone can achieve whatever they want. The American promise to the world is that we can make the world a better place. In the last 8 years America failed to live up to that promise.

Now it is up to America, not Barack Obama, to once again fullfil the American dream. But with Obama in charge and George Bush stripped of influence the American people just might have a chance again.

As they say…USA! USA! USA!

  • Duane says:

    It was great to wake up to something amazing on the news except for bad things.

    Obama is what the USA needs and so does Canada, Canada look to the US when we need help, so now with Obama in charge starting Jan Canada will also be a better country.

  • Couldn’t agree more Duane. If Harper had been in charge during the Bush years we’d be stuck in Iraq as well.
