My affiliates over at http://organizedkuhnfyoozhuhn.wordpress.com/ have a nice picture of Obama and Kennedy. Asking if he was gonna be our next Kennedy. I’d like to start with a simple no or I hope not. Obama is about change not being what Kennedy was. You can compare expectations but I still say I hope not. I hope Obama is our first Obama. I like every other love his speeches and the passion with how this man presents them. The drive and the will and the determination you hear in his voice as he delivers them makes you shake in your boots with thoughts of what the future has to hold for us. Cast those feelings aside and understand that our presidency’s color my change. We are the one that have to accept the change. We are the ones that are gonna to be willing to put in the effort. We cant expect one man to do it all but he can surely set a path or guide us on a better country. I can sit here and like everyone else demolish George Bush for the choices he’s made. The wars he’s sand trapped us in. Our economic struggle dwindling daily.
Then preach about Obama and call him our savior, our escape. I see him as the right step. The first step in many we as a country need to take. Some see the change as the first Black man in office. I see it as the best man in office. Is the color of his skin and where he can end up what we call change? Is change finaly realizing we patch things up at home before we try to patch things with our neighbors? Remember the word change can be seen for many different things. Whether it will catapult the blue collar worker , the minority classes or the rich politicians. Our country needs change, but not because Obama is black but because he believes in it and with his speeches that echo around the world like the Bill Mazeroski Home Run to win the pennant we cheer him on.
So in response to the article and the link I provided at the start of this article. No i don’t see the next Kennedy. I see the first Obama.
