A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker. -The Buddha
Why is there so much confusion about President Obama? It is being said that he is dealing with a broken government. Perhaps what is most needed is for him to speak out more directly and openly to the people. Writing this blog made us realize how vague things appear in the White House, how we are not in touch with what Obama thinks.
When he started his campaign many of us felt that we were important to him and that he cared; now there seems to be more distance between us and less connection. We need to know what he is feeling, we need to believe that we have chosen a president who can carry through with what he promised during the campaign, that he was in it for others and not for himself. We need to know he will not compromise his truth.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. -The Buddha
In the eyes of his enemies, of which there are many, it seems that President Obama can do no right. They twist and turn everything he says and does, and the name-calling is endless. Apparently he is killing far too many terrorists, they say with utter disbelief how he wants us all to have health care and to do it with bi-partisan support no less, and now he is spending way too much money to make jobs available. How awful is that!
