Today is a significant day in history, with Barack Obama winning the Presidency in the USA, I find it suitable to congratulate my American friends on making history today. The first African American US President in history. You can read Obama’s acceptance speech here.
I feel euphoria in the air. I have never experienced such hype and excitement through a Presidential campaign and election. Web 2.0 and Social Media has had a huge impact on this. It is a tool that will keep the politicians more accountable moving forward. This is a good thing. A real positive!
Barack Obama – 44th President
Barack Obama and the Obama administration, like it or not, have now got a huge influence on your everyday life. No matter where you live. Finances, prices, economy, fuel prices, you name it! I sincerely hope Barack proves to the world that he, as the first African American President of the United States, is as capable as the best Presidents before him. I hope he is better – much better.
GW Bush racked up more national debt for the US than ALL the previous President between them. That’s probaly got a “slight” influence on the economic mess that Obama will need to deal with. Not since Woodrow Wilson signed over the Fed Bank to private ownership in 1913 has such a mess been tolerated.
I wish Obama luck and I wish everyone affected by US foreign policy luck. Now, let’s hope peaceful progress can be made in Oil Related countries. Let’s hope Barack can bring in Universal Healthcare to US citizens and bring them into the 21st century and join the rest of the worlds health standards for everyday citizens.
And let’s hope GW Bush doesn’t do anything silly in the 76 days he has left in office!
Let’s hope. I’m hopeful.
15 Minutes Of Fame
Everyone is jumping on the Obama Bandwagon (look! I am) and congratulating him. In social media, sites like Digg and Twitter are going crazy! You can read Aussie Politician Malcolm Turnbull’s well wishes on his personal website and Prime Minister Kevin Rudd welcomes the massive win by Barrack. Rudd states:
“Forty-five years ago Martin Luther King dreamt of an America where men and women will be judged not on the colour of their skin but on the content of their character. Today, what America has done is turn that dream into a reality.”
Martin Luther Kings Dream
Remember the immortal statement by Martin Luther King: “I Have A Dream“. Well, today that dream has partly manifested for Martin Luther King. History has been made. America has taken a big step towards world credibility today! Forget the military muscle and all that homeland security stuff for just a few moments and let’s all congratulate America and share in their dream of peace and success throughout our world. I think today everyone wants that: Peace
Today we celebrate. Tomorrow, let’s hope Martin Luther Kings dream is good. I think it will be.
Congratulations Obama. Congratulations America!
Have a most outstanding and peaceful day
