Wow who would have thought that the President of the USA would have made such an insightful and rightfully so a video message for Ramadan, one of the holiest of holidays in the Muslim World. Muslim Americans are a growing and diverse population of this nation. Besides there are Billions of Muslims in the world towards whom, we Americans have not being kind post September 11, 2001. It is due time to set a tone of atonement for past mistakes and forge henceforth a respectful and dignified relationship with Muslims of this world. In Barak Obama, I believe, we not only stand a chance but have the perfect man in the leadership.
Bravo Professor President Obama…
First Oprah teaches Americans to pick up a book and read. Now our president is the Professor in Chief. From his rudimentary speech on race in the wake of Jeremiah Wright episodes during the presidenticial campaign of 2008 to his Inaugural Address last February 20, 2009, this president strives in tapping and inspiring the best in our heart and inciting our intellectual prowess and capacity to be better.
And I love it!
He frustrates the heck out me in his pragmatic and even-keel ways. I wish he could be a disciplinarian when circumstances call for and set straight those whose agenda is to see him fails. That being said, I still thank the heavens for him in the wake for the last regime that played on and benefited from the worse of fears and barbaric ways.
wa Alaykum as Salaam!
Mr. Charles Blow wrote a poignant Op-Ed for the New York Times. I understand and respect his niceness and professionalism as a respect and thoughtful Op Ed Columnist. However I think he missed one particular Culprit flying under the radar that I think should be exposed and taken to task. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada!
Below is my reaction to Mr. Blow’s peice.
The real culprit here is Harry Reid! the Democratic Senate Majority leader from Nevada. No matter what permeates in the passing or failure of the Health Care Reform. Spineless Harry Reid needs to go.
He is the one who anointed Rep. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa as Deal Maker / Breaker on this issue. The Democrats has a majority in the Senate and Harry Reid appointed a panel of 3 Republicans and 3 Democrats to take the leadership in driving a Health Care bill in the Senate. That just makes no sense!
I bet you no Republican would dare do such a thing.
At times I truly wonder if the words of Rush Limbaugh are manifesting in the action of certain Democrats in both Houses of Congress.
They want Obama to fail!
