President Barack Obama
The Barack Obama presidency has elicited a lot of interest not only in the United States, but all around the world. Obama is not an international figure because of the color of his skin, but because of what he stands for, the values that he believes in. He managed to beat John McCain in the race to the White House, not because he was a better hero, but because he embodied what Americans had been lacking for a very long time, hope.
Obama as a president has been able to achieve a lot for his country. The war in Iraq and Afghanistan is about to become history, thanks to the Obama government policies. Many saw his anti-war sentiments as being cowardly, but the truth is the US does not have to be in a war that is basically pointless and senseless killing. His healthcare program is changing how people access medical care in this country. Also his economic policies have helped a lot of people survive the most recent economic crunch. Anti Obama politicians have tried to discredit him on a single argument claiming that he lacked the necessary requirements and experience to be in charge of the affairs of the United States. However it’s clear that what America needs at this time is a visionary, such as Obama. A man who not only promises hope, but who also acts on these promises. He has already managed to achieve what many other presidents ahead of him failed at, and this was gives the American people a reason to believe in themselves, regardless of class, race and even religion. He’s not just Washington’s little puppet or toy, he is a selfless and courageous leader whose inspiration has single-handedly helped the United States regain respect from the rest of the world.
