He’s the President of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA!
In the February/March issue of Source Magazine, Diddy gives his ‘Two Cents’ on what President Barack Obama has done so far in office. And what he said was pure foolishness.
I love the president like most of us. I just want the president to do better. There’s a difference between us voting for somebody and us believing in somebody. He’s the person that we believed in so I pray night and day that he understands how God ordained his presidency. I feel there was a promise made to God to look after people that was less fortunate, and [many] of those people are African-American…
The President should choose doing the right thing, even if it isn’t easy politically. It’s something he might not get reelected for, but we elected him. He owes us. I’d rather have a black president that was man enough to say that he was doing something for black people have one term than a president who played the politics game have two terms.
Give me a minute to digest this.
I’m incredibly annoyed with this hypocritical foolishness. Diddy was one of Obama’s biggest lobbyist during Obama’s Election Process. He alongside many Hip Hop Titans collectively got out there to promote the then Democratic Nominee. And now he’s using that same platform to criticize the President he helped get elected. Now, I’m not at all saying that Diddy is not allowed to speak his opinion, what I am saying is that if Diddy is in fact going to take to a major publication with such a bold accusatory statement, he owes it to himself and the millions of people he helped solicit as voters to also include examples, facts, Statistics and a clear understanding of where he’s coming from. To make such a bold statement out of vagueness is completely idiotic.
‘I’d rather have a black president that was man enough to say that he was doing something for black people have one term than a president who played the politics game have two terms.’
Can someone please tell Diddy and those who agree with him, that Obama’s obligation is to the PEOPLE of the United States in it’s entirety NOT JUST BLACK PEOPLE. He’s not the President of Atlanta. Ungh! According to the Census Website there are 301, 774, 264 Individuals living in this Country. Barack Obama’s Umbrella of Responsibility has every last American under it.
Take a second.
In the Year 2000, African Americans made up 12.3% of this Country’s Population. We didn’t elect him by ourselves. Can anyone even imagine how large the responsibility of being responsible for the livelihood of over Three hundred Million people is? What that feels like? And let’s not forget that he purchased a house that was damaged in every aspect of the word. Is all that supposed to change in 2 years? Do we even get that he does not make decisions alone? Do we understand the system of Checks and Balances? The issues of having a Democratic President and a Republican House? The opposition that ensues? Or does anyone care? Don’t let your ignorance of the process of Presidential Responsibility, and it’s process push you into a downward spiral regarding the President’s Current Status. Some of you may say; He wanted this job, so now he needs to deal with. He is dealing with it. We need to be patient and understand the process, and not be so fast to pass judgement. The job looks easier than it is. It’s not as simple as him writing Laws and them being approved. God and the President are two different Titles.
That’s all I’m saying.
So Diddy and Company, I’d definitely appreciate a thorough explanation when you attack a Man who’s responsibility supersedes the scope of anything we could imagine. It would suffice my spirit, Thanks.
