A Breath of Fresh Air01.26.09
Talk about a total climate change.
Everyday I read more and more about what President Obama is doing and I’m constantly refreshed by the actions he’s taking and the words he’s saying. He proves that you can have a respectful air of authority without being a total cowboy. His is a cerebral confidence and one of intelligence and rationality. Exactly the kind of traits we need in an American leader.
“I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries,” Obama said, according to a White House transcript. “My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy.”
Somehow I think Obama’s approach to the situation trumps Bush’s: “Every nation in every region now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.”
