Obama’s Inaguration- Nigeria

21 Jan

Yesterday at about 12 o’clock PM ET, President Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as the President of the United States. Although, I was reading a newspaper article from the Nigerian newspaper, “Business Day” in which I read a quote by Jessie Jackson which reads,

“Jackson concurred, saying that Obama is Africa’s gift to the United States, and so the latter is indebted to Africa.
Schneidman cautioned, however, against too much expectations. The United States is not going to double its aid to Africa, certainly not immediately, he said. What seemed certain is that Obama’s election will have a positive impact on Africa’s democracy. “

I really think that he is being stuck up and pigheaded for even thinking this. How can he say that a person is a gift? Are we retreating to slavery? This has to be one of the worst quotes I’ve head from a political figure. How could we possibly be in debt to another nation for one of their citizens having a child with an American?

I am so incredibly happy that Barack Obama won the presidential election. Now we only have a few more months of turmoil due to Bush. In my opinion, if McCain/Palin would’ve won, we would’ve just been hurled deeper into this “black hole of an economy.” I mean, McCain was just another Bush, and our country just couldn’t withstand that. Obama can think of ways to get out of this creatively, and keep our economy in tact, while McCain would’ve just let it get worse. Honestly, he is old, which is another downfall to his campaign. Not many people liked Sarah Palin and her tattooed lip liner, and she would’ve been running the country when McCain died. Given, he is in pretty good health at the moment, but still, he’s what, 72? Thats old for a president. If he would’ve run his full 8 years, he would’ve been 80 by the time his presidency was over. Thats not cool. Obama on the other hand is just, overall good for the country. I think that now, we actually stand a chance of staying together, and getting through this turmoil as a country- the exact same way we got in.
