President Obama said if you don’t like what is going on around you politically then get a clipboard, show up, dive in and stay at it. This could mean just being an community and/or political activist and not just running for office.
Okay folk don’t think that it will be easy to go straight to the top you must know where to show up, how and when to dive in and then encourage yourself to stay in because you may not get the support from those who you thought would stand with you.
Remember President Obama also said you will win sometimes and you will lose sometimes.
I survived all the Presidents that have been elected/selected since my 54 years here. I survived President Obama and I trust I will survive the current President and future Presidents.
What tickles the hell out of me is black folk who say President Obama has not done anything for black folk. Well I think much of Ignant Racist White Folk who disrespected my President, but for Ignant Safe Negroes to disrespect him was a bit the chew. Well I have not suffered not one bit since President Obama has been in office for the past 8 years so I wish these ignants will tell me and/or show me how he/she has suffered.
What I do know is that I will not spend time talking about what President Obama did and/or didn’t do because he has served his time. His record speaks for itself and I will not debate anyone about his record. However what I will say is that it would not have made a difference if it had been President Obama or any other black man elected as President that he would not have been treated any different.
In my closing what I have been worried about for the past 8 years is that someone would have tried to take his life. So today I was glad to see President Obama come and I am glad to see him go alive.
The Watch Dog response: These ignants continue to do what their goal was and still is to block anything President Obama want to do.
HBO’s John Oliver made his triumphant return to Sunday night and immediately went after Republicans for a saying they will refuse to consider any nominations to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Calling Scalia’s death “the end of an era on the Supreme Court,” Oliver noted that “There is now a huge vacancy on the Supreme Court that needs to be filled, or if you listened to the Republicans in the last 24 hours — not.”
Sharing a clip of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to “delay, delay, delay,” Oliver said it just might happen. (Source: Read more)
The Watch Dog response: This is one of the best or maybe the best article I have read about our President.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – I’ve never written a column like this. Readers rarely believe it, but I am not on any political team. Generosity toward the high and mighty isn’t among my few virtues. But this needs to be said: Americans are lucky to have Barack Obama as president and we should wake up and appreciate it while we can.
President Obama will go down in history as an extraordinary president, probably a great one. He will have done this in an era that doesn’t aggrandize leaders and presidents, but shrinks them. All presidents have had profound opposition, vicious enemies and colossal failures. A few were beloved and others deeply respected in their day, but none in the modern era and certainly not Obama.

When you are considered by millions of people across the nation and throughout the world community to be the “Leader of the Free World,” that is an awesome and serious international responsibility. Do you remember when President Obama was first elected eight years ago? There were numerous pundits who questioned whether or not the first African American to be President of the United States of America had the fortitude and intellectual capacity to provide leadership not only across the country, but also on the worldwide geopolitical stage.
This month as President Obama prepares to enter his last year as president, it is important to state for the record that I believe history will one day stipulate that Barack H. Obama was in fact the most successful President of the U.S. That is a fact in terms of Obama’s leading the restoration of the nation’s economy, reducing the deficit, increasing employment, providing health care for the first time to millions of people, innovating the energy sector, leading the world toward environmental and climate protection, and challenging racism by irreversibly shattering the myth of white supremacy.

The Political Agitator’s response: If anyone has a problem with the following then it ain’t no need to debate them. My President put it out there and now it is up for Congress to move forward or fight against it. Time will tell.
Now this is what up! Now, following a new clutch of killings in places like Oregon, South Carolina and California last year, Obama’s public evolution on gun control may be complete. Instead of talking, he’s acting. At the White House, he unveiled a series of executive actions on guns, including expanding mandatory background checks for some private sales.
Washington (CNN) The Mr. Cool in the Oval Office rarely shows emotion.
But on one issue — guns — President Barack Obama lets the public mask slip, revealing the ire boiling within.
Before the cameras, moved by the massacres of innocents that have punctuated his presidency, Obama has wept, his voice has cracked, he’s visibly shaken with frustration, he’s lashed out at lawmakers he sees as cowards and even led a congregation in “Amazing Grace.”
On Tuesday, as he faced a room filled with parents and relatives of victims of gun violence, he stopped speaking, grew silent and wiped away the tears that began to fall when he recalled the first graders killed in a Connecticut elementary school three years ago.
“Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad,” Obama said in the East Room of the White House. (Source: Read more)
