Obama - One / Osama - Zero

May 5th, 2011

My Dear America:

Well, here we go again.  The Race for the Presidency of the United States has begun once again and events in the beginning of May, 2011 are happening at Breakneck Speed and with Great Significance.

It has only been a few weeks since President Obama officially threw his hat in the ring and announced that he was, indeed, planning to be a run for a second term for President in 2012.  One wonders why he would want to be a candidate with the incredible animosity he has received from his critics but I do not question his reasoning for his undertaking the race, I am simply grateful that he is doing it. 

The State of the Union at the present time is, in many respects a disaster.  Republicans in the House, especially Tea Pary Republicans, continue to try to dismantle the safety net for Poor and Middle Class Citizens that has been in place for many years thanks to primarily Democrats and those ancient beings that used to be known as Moderate and Progressive Republicans. 

President Obama on today's date is clearly in the drivers seat heading for the 2012 Election after showing calm, deliberate and sensible leadership in the direction of a commando campaign into Pakistan which not only killed Al Quida Leader, Osama bin ladin but also took possession of bin ladin's computers and other files, which hopefully will lead to the killing or capturing of other Al Quida operatives wherever they may be. 

Over last weekend President Obama did not display any signs that he was burdened by the coming operation to eliminate Osama.  He sat at the main table on Saturday Night at the White House Correspondents Dinner and, along with Saturday Night Live Head Writer, Seth Meyers, skewered some of the leading Republican Candidates for President, with especially deserved ridicule aimed at Republican Poll Leader, Donald Trump.  Trump was there in the audience glaring viciously at Obama and Meyers.   It had been wonderful to watch Trump, who had spent a good deal of time on the campaign trail questioning Obama's place of birth earlier last week, put in his place by the President, who released his long form birth certificate and once and for all, at least for all reasonable people, put the matter to rest.  Trump, classy guy that he is, did not apologize to the President but instead patted himself on the back for forcing the President to take time out from his genuinely important duties to deal with this Trumped up BS.  Trump's next step was to start questioning Obama's intelligence and in so doing calling for Obama to release his college transcripts.  Here again, only a stupid fool like DT would be foolish enough to question the intelligence of a man who graduated from Harvard Law School Magna Cum Laude and was the first black Editor of the Harvard Law Review.

Hey, Donald Trump, when are we going to see your college transcripts.

Tonight will be the first Republican Candidates Debate in South Carolina including only a few of the Republican Candidates for President.  Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Ron Paul will be there along with a guy named Gary "Who".  

I guess its never too early for Republicans to market themselves.

Sincerely Yours
