Barack Obama

Barack Obama is here; This is the time and we will hear, over and over for years to come. In 2008 he made himself known. For many it was news. Soon he became famous and well known all over the world. His famous words were - We need a change. The people went crazy, eager for a change. The people were tired. The Country was in a bad shape. People were losing their homes and also their jobs. A change did happen. It was history in the making. Only in America - people would say. Barack Obama is his name. A new president had been elected, by the people and for the people. So fellow Americans"The White House would have a change in 2009. People have power and there is no doubt. It had been proven one more time. If we stand together - we can make a difference... It is not about what one man alone can do. It is about what we can all do together, as a Nation. Written July of 2009. By Lucilla M. Carrillo

    This is a democracy and not a dictatorship. The President wields quite a bit of power thanks to the Constitution, but he is elected and he does not run the show by himself. Good write about our current Commander in Chief.

    Thanks Robert; I say the same thing. When things go wrong, we can not just blame one person. There are a lot more people involved. Many blessings. Lucilla

    Hi Debbie; That would be nice, if a woman was elected, than we would really have a change. But we'll see what happens this year. Thanks for commenting. Lucilla

    well, I am glad you did not blast him. I think he has good intentions. I just wish he would get some smarter people on his staff!! this poem is hard to tell what you think of him personally. I think he has a good chance in the election, but once again, I wish he would put some better individuals on his staff. People who would work to make better plans for balancing the budget, etc.

    Hi Andrea - no I would not blast him. He did have good intentions and has tried to do a lot of good things. The problem is that the other party won't let him. I do believe that he is a very smart man, but sometimes that is not enough. Politics is a dirty buisness. Many blessings, Lucilla

    Hmmm, the debt is larger by huge, more unemployed, more illegal immigrant all on the dole, property values have plummeted, more on food stamps and assistance, I could go on but yes change is here and maybe we need to change Obama but I don't see anything better in the line up. I feel sad about it Lucilla

    Thanks for the comment Elizabeth; I too don't see anything better. I still work to make ends meet, but we have not gotten a raise in five years. They say that there is no money, but the bosses get big bonuses in the thousands, while we get nothing. We need a real change. Lucilla

    I thank you for your kind words and comment and I rated your poem on merit, but as far as this president goes he went to far in backing Homesexuality and I can't 'and will not vote him now, I thought he was better than that, God says it's an abomination to Him Romans Chapter one. God bless

    Hi Robert; thank you for reading. That is a sad thing I guess nobody expected that. Believe it or not - we have a lesbian mayor here. I too don't think that he will make it this time. Have a nice day. Lucilla
