PRESIDENT BARACK: Thank you. Thank you.

CROWD: Obama! Obama! Obama! Obama!

My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors.

I thank President Bush for his service to our nation…

… as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath.

The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.

           Last night, two presidents graced the stage at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.  The first was former President Bill Clinton.  Clinton’s speech was honest and supportive of Obama.  Bill apparently still has the heart of the party, because the crowd didn’t sit down for a good five minutes before his speech.  His support of Obama may have even been more effective than his wife’s was.  I thought I’d throw in a little Chappelle for some laughs.


           Next was Joe Biden.  Biden hit the stage with a lot of applause, but nothing close to Clintons welcome.  Biden’s speech I feel was solid, but it was the weakest of all of the main speeches of the convention.  He spoke to all of the things that were said before, and had some inspiring stories about his childhood.  He did his job of solidifying Obama’s American story.  Luckily, Biden had a secret weapon to win the crowd over.  Check the video.  Remember when I said that 2 presidents graced the stage, well here’s the second.

           So, earlier today Obama officially announced his v.p. running mate: Joe Biden.  As both Barack and Biden repeatedly said throughout their speeches, they both grew up blue collar, with adversity staring them down.  Now, Politicians have said those types of things for years upon years.  But this time, I believe it.  I think this is a good choice for Obama:  Biden has decades of experience, he’s strong on Foreign Policy, they have worked together before, and frankly…He’s an Old white guy, and that’s the vote that Obama hasn’t been getting.  I hope these two, together can make America mean what it’s supposed to be, and this speech shows us, that it is not too far fetched.


“Barack Obama and I believe, we believe with every fiber in our being that our families, our communities as Americans, there’s not a single solitary challenge we cannot face if we level with the American people. And I don’t say that to say it; history, history has shown it. When have Americans ever, ever, ever, ever, ever let their country down when they’ve had a leader to lead them?… Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to elect Barack Obama president. It’s our time. It’s America’s time. God bless America.”

—Joe Biden in Springfield, Illinois.

Intro/Our Man on Papa’s Day by Coco Butta

     This my first post so gimme a little lee-way here. But the cutting to the chase here. Our man Barack Obama gave a scorching Father’s Day address at one of the biggest African-American churches in Chicago. In his speech, he outlined the fact that many black fathers were “M.I.A. or A.W.O.L.” to name a couple of the terms he used. The fact is, more or less, he took the opportunity today to address an issue that has long been neglected by both sides of political aisle. 

This issue of single parenting is not just an issue that applies to areas like Chicago, New York, or LA, it applies to places closer to home. Like Newark, less than a mile from MTC. The fact is, much of the problem with crime, poverty and drugs, can all be traced back to the fact that many families have single moms, with spouses or boyfriends who are incarcerated, “M.I.A.” or dead in some cases. 

It is fundamental that one recognizes the importance of this. Single-parenting itself is not a bad thing per se, but the truth is, when a father has flown the coop, what does it demonstrate to the child? The necessity of responsibility, inside and outside the home. Be it at school, at a friend’s house, or even a party. On that cheerful note. . . 

I wish you all a happy Father’s Day, much love, and all that cal,
