The tasks ahead of our new president and the rough road he has in order to persuade the naysayers to follow him on the road to redemption.
The housing crisis. The banking crisis. The energy crisis. Global warming. Iraq. Am I forgetting something? Barack’s crisis! Imagine being the person in charge of rectifying all the problems that face our great nation. Imagine being scrutinized for attempting to ford this deluge of disaster with the swift and powerful maneuvers required of any great sea captain or accomplished airline pilot. Imagine the greatest country in the world falling to ruin because its own representatives failed to help their leader find the path to redemption and its own media drowned his persona as he waded through the muck we are all responsible for cleaning up.
United We Stand is not a cliché, it is a directive for the triumph of our cause as the leaders of the Free World. It is our job, Americans, to rise above the muck and malicious media. It is our job, all believers and non, to embrace our new leader. For Barack Obama to be President of the United States, we must first be united. Give the new guy a break. Give him a hand. Give him the oars to this rickety imported boat so he can row back to the shore to get a shiny and new, American-made, economy-boosting vessel with which to navigate the rough seas and the muck that is our economy. Rise up and unite, America, and this could be the greatest era this country has ever seen. Let us all come together and stand Obama on our shoulders so that he may see the lighthouse and guide us to calm waters where we can swim for safety. [Update-swimming in the Gulf is safe, but I would recommend taking that boat:)]
