    This is just about the cutest photo of our President and Bo silently waiting for him. I don’t think this “get the president” mentality will cease until after the November election. These next 3 months, the republicians are fighting for their very existence. Our president is the most visible so he catches the heat. Come November 5th when it will be published how much he has accomplished while they have been fighting to keep his poll numbers down, then they will see what a gracious, intelligent, hardworking president we have. Right now he is catching the “heat” of the desparate Republicans. God is good and our President will prevail!!!

    Graciouslady, your words encourage me. Barack Obama brought my attention to politics, and it’s a world I find very difficult to tolerate……..the posturing for power and the lack of honest candor drives me nuts. I find the actions of the Republicans as a whole very disturbing, and I am very concerned for the mid-term elections that the support President Obama needs to get things accompolished will be compromised even more than it is at this time. I believe in President Obama, but I know he can’t do this on his own, and if all those who elected him are paying attention, he needs us to remain engaged and actively working to see that he gets the support in the Senate and House of Representatives that he needs to keeping us moving forward. Namaste.

      , I am glad I was able to add a little encouragment to your day. I would like to just share this with you. When President Obama was campaigning in Europe,the crowds were H U G E (200K, 150K, 100k) Why? Why would they stand a snow storm to catch a glimpse of him (Canada-after his election).There is something “special” about this man. He came from out of nowhere with humble beginnings, world traveler had good parents (especially his Mom and grandparents). All of these things made me wonder. I am not suggesting any kinda mystical or divine anything , but there is something special about him. Perhaps God has a Plan for him as he leads us. If He does, then He will allow him to be tested, but He won’t leave him. Remember,to use this analogy gold has to be withstand extreme heat before it becomes gold.If God has a special purpose for him, which I believe He does,then nothing will derail him.( (Yeah his numbers are dropping in the polls: Polls are very easily manipulated to say anything you want the to say. They could have polled 6 Republicans and 4 Democrats the results are going to be negative for our President.) But all of us must be tested if He is to use our lives for His purpose. If you are a praying person, just say a little prayer for our President and his family each day that they are safe and successful.

    Pets are great. When your day goes all wrong and the world seems to be against you, your pets just show you love.

    On another note, I don’t live in America, but I’ve been following President Obama for a very long time via his books, television and the internet and all I can say is that Barack Obama is a man of integrity, honor and he has a really good heart.

    I kept telling people during the campaign that if it is God’s will for him to be President he would become president. And so said so done.

    America is so lucky to have him as their president. I do honestly believe that he will prevail through these very tough times.

    It is one of my very last wishes on this earth to meet him one day. For me right now that seems like wining the lottery. But a girl can only hope and pray.

    May God Bless President Obama and his family.

      Sue, we have to pray and keep the faith. As the saying goes: hatas gon be hatas. Nothing we can do about them hating but to meet hate with love. That’s one of the many qualities about our President that I love. He returns that hate with love. He can be tough and firm, but he is always loving. I believe with all my heart that he is/will be just fine. Just keep praying and keep the faith. Everything is in divine order. Believe it.

      Peace and Love!
