Our President

I saw an advertisement for a roofing company the other day that really bothered me. It said, “Unlike Obama, we’ve got you covered.” Not only is that not really a good advertising strategy, seeing as it excludes a part of the population, it is downright rude. I don’t care what your political affiliations are, Obama is our president and we should be supporting him. I think he has one of the hardest jobs in the world. It’s not easy to try to do what is best for the nation when everyone is constantly opposing you. It is not easy to make everyone happy. President Obama is not evil. He is not sitting on a throne thinking of ways to ruin our lives. He is sincerely trying to make America a better place. Some people may not like his strategies, but he is only trying to do what is best.

I know that a lot of people don’t like what Obama is doing. But can we try to see things from his perspective and others before we pass judgment? He wants to make this nation better, but it can only be a better place if we can learn to get along. We should also support President Obama. That doesn’t mean we have to like everything he does, and of course we have the right to our own opinion, but I am sick of people saying terrible things about him as a person. He is trying to help our country, and we aren’t helping at all. So no matter your political affiliations, we should support our president, and if we feel to oppose his legislature, we should do it in the right way.

We are all Americans and we should all be trying to make our nation better, whether Republican or Democrat or other. We should stop hating each other based on politics and try to do what is best for our country. 

I am in no way trying to offend anyone, I just wanted to say how I felt. I know some of you may not agree with me, and that’s ok. I love all my friends and family, no matter what. 


  1. Love this post! I agree with you whole heartily. I never cared for Bush, but I never publicly criticized him.
