Obama is the President, not Boehner: When the head is present, the knee should not pretend to wear the hat

The battle between the Democrats and Republicans about how to avoid the Fiscal Cliff brings us back to the difficulties of President Obama’s first term. The President had a hard time dealing with the Republican-controlled congress, which chose obstructionism over moving the country forward. In the past, we heard from leaders who wished for the President’s failure to […]

Trump, Palin, Coulter gaffs: A foolish head weakens the feet

Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, and and Ann Coulter seem to believe that they own America and have the right to denigrate the President of the United States. Clearly these people have trouble accepting someone different than a White man in the White House. Why don’t they go into exile and come back after the president’s term […]

Rush Limbaugh: He who is born a fool is never cured

Watching American society arguing about birth control is incomprehensible.  It seems like anytime American women gain one step, they are held back three steps. Birth control is a private matter and a civil right. The involvement of American Taliban — I mean the American ultra- conservatives — in the debate adds more spice in the sauce. Rush Limbaugh, […]

US paying for Quran burning faux pas: When the brain makes a mistake, the whole body pays the price

Despite President Obama’s apology regarding a bizarre Quran burning by US forces in Afghanistan, violence against the US is still going on. The question is, how did this happen? How can a group of officers not think and predict the consequences of such an insensitive act? Maybe this unfortunate act by US forces will speed up their […]

President Obama needs the support of the Black elite: A foetus that fears criticism will never be born

President Obama has been under a lot of criticism from the “Black elite” for not doing enough for Black people. The latest comment from Mr. Cornel West, a well known and respected black intellectual, […]

President Obama is a combination of Kenyan and Irish blood: A tree cannot stand on the ground without its roots

It takes two to make a child. President Obama, African American, is in reality half White and half Black. The town of Moneygall, Ireland, is preparing to welcome the US president.  Moneygall is the town from which his great great great grandfather immigrated to America. For political reasons, Obama’s opponents tend to focus more on his […]

America shouldn’t forget 9/11: Warm water never forgets that it was once cold

President Obama‘s visit to Ground Zero was a very symbolic gesture, and also a reminder of the danger of terrorism. For ten years, America has been in the process of healing, but, the fear will never disappear. As human beings, we certainly feel some sympathy for Osama’s daughter, who witnessed the killing of her father. At the […]

John Boehner’s comments about gas prices comfirm that this crisis does not have a political affiliation. Democrat and Republican supporters are both suffering at the gas station. If, in politics, leaders speak for the people who elected them, then this is the best opportunity for both political parties to do something together about the high gas prices. There […]

Obama no different than predecessors when it comes to foreign policy: They are all fingers of the same hand

President Obama has launched his reelection campaign, 19 months before the election itself. His campaign will be expensive. Many predict a billion dollar campaign. In 19 months, the president must convince skeptical independent voters why he needs to be reelected. Many of us had high expectations for a change in American politics, especially in foreign policy. Nothing […]
