Well…I said before Obama can’t save you, and I am convinced that is true. In fact there is no government official that will do for you what you won’t do for yourself. Nobody can save you…but here’s the good news…Nobody else has to, because you can save yourself. The gift that President Obama gives to us is the gift of seeing ourselves. What do I mean by that? As eloquent and inspiring as Mr. Obama has been it has become clear that even he, cannot change the quality of our lives in any subsequent way except perhaps in a bad way.
Mr. Obama and Mrs. Obama have said many times on the campaign trail that “We are the change we have been waiting for.” That is the magic bullet! I have heard the president say that “It’s not about me…or the congress…it’s about you.” This is where you and I have to sit up, take notice, and then take action. All the horrible financial conditions that we find ourselves suffering through is a result of choices we all collectively have made. We gave our power away to elected officials who don’t care about us, or can’t care for us. We spent money we didn’t have, and let our government do the same. We didn’t save for a rainy day…we thought the sun would shine eternally, only to find out that…it doesn’t. Sometimes it rains and right now a whole lot of us are getting soaked.
So in his State Of The Union address president Obama I’m sure will give a great speech. He will say it is still important for all Americans to have health insurance, and it is. He will say that republicans and democrats should work in a bi-partisan way (I’ve grown to hate that term) and they should. The president will say that the economy has gotten better but we still have a long way to go, and we do. There are terrorists out there that demand our vigilant defense and sometimes offense…check. The president will say lots of things both inspiring and bothersome. But what the president won’t say, is the thing he most needs to say, and it’s this – “I can’t save you, neither can the congress.”
He won’t say it perhaps because he believes he can, or maybe he honestly doesn’t want to. Either way the truth is still the same…The government can build the road but we the people have to drive the car to where we want to be. I was a big supporter of Mr. Obama, I still think there is a lot of potential he has yet to realize. So far I am sad to say I am not impressed. He over promised and under delivered. But…that’s what politicians do.
Right now the State Of The Union is horrible…but you and I can turn it around. That is my prayer and determination for our country. So I really hope that Mr. Obama will get about the business of building us some roads…because I think a whole lot of people are about to burn rubber on the way to the America we’re supposed to be.
Stay Fly and Fly High!
