Witty Wednesday-Donald Trump is an Idiot

Now I’ve said here before that I don’t like to talk about people…but with this, I can’t contain it to myself anymore.  I don’t think today’s post will be long, but it will be poignant, at least I hope it is. 

Ok, are you birthers and all you other naysayers happy now?  The White House has released President Obama’s birth certificate.  Did anybody REALLY think Barack Obama wasn’t born in America?  Raise your hands, stomp your feet, do something if you thought otherwise…nope, no takers-yep, I didn’t think so.  I appreciate the President’s comments during his press conference.

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Obama told reporters at the White House. “I’ve been puzzled at the degree to which this (story) just kept on going.”

Me, too, Mr. President.  Now, Donald Trump, who I believe is trying to drum up viewership of his show “The Celebrity Apprentice”, is claiming Obama wasn’t a good student while at Harvard.  Are you kidding me???  We have SOARING gas prices, millions of working Americans who DON’T have health insurance, families who are living paycheck to paycheck, and you want to question whether or not the President was a good student?!?!? Seriously, you need a hobby!  To my knowledge, no President has ever had to prove his citizenship.  Why?  Because it’s been proven BEFORE he took office.  If Donald Trump is as concerned about this country as he claims (isn’t that why people run for President?), then he needs to start addressing the problems that are occuring in American households and neighborhoods…not harassing a man who’s doing his job.

Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl..in the city.

P.S. I do hope Trump becomes the Republican nominee for President in 2012.  It’ll make the race that much easier for President Obama.

My Thoughts on the Obamas

Happy 100th post to ME!!!  This has been such a blessing, a lot of work, and a lot of fun working on and creating this blog.  I have grown so much since May when I did my first post.  When I wrote that post, I had NO clue what I would write about.  But I knew I liked to talk, so I didn’t think it would be that hard!   In any event, I wanted to make sure that my 100th post was significant, so I decided to share my thoughts on one of the most influential families in the world, The Obamas.

I have been a Barack Obama supporter since he declared his candidacy.  Not only was I a supporter of the candidate, but I was a supporter of his family.  It’s been awhile since a positive image of an African-American family has been seen in mainstream media.  People’s first look was “The Cosby Show”…and that was fictional; I’m glad that the Obamas are very real and have not changed anything since President Obama was elected.  Lucky for me, I am a part of and grew up seeing great black families, so this was not a foreign concept to me.  

I appreciate how involved our First Lady is on causes that she holds dear.  The last time I saw a FLOTUS this active was Nancy Reagan…and I was a toddler.  I’m sure Secretary of State Clinton and both Mrs. Bushes were active…I just don’t remember.  (Or maybe I didn’t pay attention.)  I love the attention that she has given to military families and to childhood obesity.  She has become such an icon and role model, and it’s been a while since the world has seen a person like her-one who is able to inspire greatness in so many people.

I also appreciate how Sasha and Malia are being kept under wraps.  I feel like when President Clinton and (the 2nd) President Bush were in the White House, you always heard something about their kids.  Now, maybe I’m living under a rock, but I haven’t heard too much about Sasha and Malia in the news.  They go to school and do what kids do, which I think is great!  Now, I have to admit that my friends and I were once joking around and said that it would be SO hard for a boy to date either one of them (when they get older).  They have to deal with Secret Service, Barack and Michelle, and don’t forget Grandma Marian!

To say I love the Obamas is an understatement.  I appreciate the positive changes that have taken place in this country since President Obamas inauguration and how he and Michelle work as a team.  I appreciate how Sasha and Malia are nowhere to be seen each week in some magazine or newspaper.  And I definitely appreciate how the Obamas are able to keep some family traditions in place after the move to DC from Chicago. 

So what do you guys think?  Are the Obamas a good family role model for Americans?  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.

P.S.  I purposefully stayed away from ANY election or political stuff.  I’m saving that for my next post! 😉
