The insanity never stops with the Republicans because they are angry that an intelligent Black man is president of the United States. The attacks will never subside when they know that President Barack Obama will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents of all time. The Republicans will never admit that when Obama took office, the country was heading for a major depression that was occurring under President George W. Bush.
By the grace of God and the wise leadership of the president, the economy is improving. The unemployment numbers have been lowered, and people are beginning to find work. Obama took an impossible situation and created a new paradigm in which more people have an opportunity to succeed through diversity. There has never been a president who has promoted more women, Blacks and Latinos to positions of power in the federal government.
As the president continues to live his dream as one of the most powerful men in the country and the world, ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani has stated that Obama does not love America. Everyone knows this is a ridiculous statement, but many Republicans support the allegations.
“I do not believe—and I know this is a horrible thing to say—but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said at a New York dinner.
This statement makes no sense, but we must remember that the attacks will never stop because, strategically, that is the plan. Also, we must remember that the attacks do not have to be based on facts or truth because the goal is to tear down the integrity of the man, our president.
“What I’m saying is that in his rhetoric, I very rarely hear him say the things that I used to hear Ronald Regan and Bill Clinton say, about how much he loves America. It sounds like he’s more of a critic than he is a supporter,” said Giuliani.
It is obvious that Giuliani has selective hearing, and he is not listening when the president is talking about how a biracial man of humble beginnings can rise to the highest office in the land. Maybe he is forgetting the slogan “Yes, We Can,” which transformed the way campaigns raised money, generating millions of dollars via the Internet with $10 and $25 donations from millions of Americans. Every day the president wakes up, he thanks God for being born in America and the opportunity to be the first Black president in America.
There is no reason to try and change the empty rhetoric from Giuliani, because this is not the first time Republicans have tried to question the president’s patriotism. Back in 2007, Obama’s love for his country came into question because he was not wearing a flag pin.
“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest. Instead, I’m gonna try to tell the American people what I believe what will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism,” said Obama in 2007.
Obama is working every day to improve the country and give all Americans the opportunity to live a better life. America is not perfect, but the president loves the country with every part of his being.
Everyone has an opportunity to criticize the policies and the ideology of the president, but to attack and criticize the president’s patriotism and love for America is wrong, and he deserves an apology. To build a more perfect union, it is necessary at times to create a new paradigm shift, but your love for what the country stands for is never diminished.
