In seven plus years, Bush refused to meet with the 9-11 and USS Cole families. They asked for the meeting many many times.

President Obama met with them for two hours barely two weeks into his presidency. He listened to their stories and explained his plans. He promised to meet with them again after the 120 day period of case review is up. They all, to a person, left the meeting tremendously impressed by President Obama.

He is going to be the most effective, most loved president in history.

to all

i'm writing about another matter and that is, the republicans and how they are disrespecting president obama, and as a viewer i don't like it.
i'm sick and tired of them talking about their concervative values, as if they are the only ones on this earth with values or are one who have any.

i don't care about their so called values all i care about is how am i going to pay rent and put food on my table.

at a time when our country needs healing and the families of those whom have passed on needs some calmness in their life all you have is a bunch of old men talking nonsense.

why wasn't they worried about their values, when the decseions they made was responsible for the deaths and murders of over 4,000 18-30 year old kids and many more that are wounded that almost never get talked about.

where were their values when they stood by and watched people jumped from the windows of a burning building and die all because of the laws and polices that they passed allowed the terrorist to walk through our airports 30 times as if they worked there.

and where were their values, while people were swimming in infested waters just so that they can escape from the floods in thier homes and to get food for their families. so l ask the house and senate repbulicans, what happen to your values then? why you guys wasn't on the tv and intenet then.

you know guys, i think every last one of these people are full of crap.

i'm sick of all this mess, so lets try and let the american people know what tricks the republicans are using.

and another thing as a african american i have to say that i was taken back with mr. limbaughs comments about our president.
it was racist and un called for.

he said, obama wants him to bend over so and put his hands on his ankles just because he's black.
first of all he cannot bend over, because his but is too fat.

not only that, but big fat rush blimbaugh should bend over with his hands on his ankles, just in that position so he should ask obama for his forgiveness.
yes america, he's a racist just like many of his racist republicans friends, that's in the senate and in the house.

just like his father was and grandfather, can you imagine how his ancestors acted, probably like him rocking from side to side like a walrus, calling people names, trying to make people feel bad, looking down on people and judging them according to his standards and then trying to justify his actions by saying it's freedom of speech.

don't be fooled by this guys, if he love his country so much let him give up his 40 million dollar a year job, and then tell him to run for senate or house so he can make the
changes that are nesscary.
what a great joke
peace out
