A fresh start in a new chapter

With all do respect, the letter to the editor on 1/14/08“America too fragile for a rookie in charge” was a bit of a stretch comparing Barack Obama with George Bush. Like Nicole Warren, the writer, I have a favorable Opinion of Hillary Clinton; however, it disappoints me to know that she was among the ones that cast a vote for George Bush to invade Iraq. She and others let down all those innocent people, Iraqis and Americans, that are dead, maimed or mentally challenged. Because America’s image is in such a slump and the dismal forecast of the economy, I, like many others, would like this country to have a fresh start in a new chapter. Both JFK and MLK Jr. were profound thinkers with writing skills along with being unique orators; they both worked on a new chapter to steer America in a better place; like many, I feel Obama’s skills are certainly reminiscent of the two.

An avalanche is coming aimed at neo-cons‏

We knew the train was coming; some of us had actually read the mood of the Bush administration before those that cast a vote and gave a green light for Iraq to be invaded; not to apologize for that vote shows a disconnect. At this moment in time being connected counts. Too many innocent lives have been lost under a goal post moved and shifted to justify a wrong in front of the eyes of the world.

With many neo-conservatives behind a trillion dollar war translated by many now as US providing security for Iraq while Americans are loosing their security, be aware that many of us see an avalanche coming taking aim at neo-conservatism.

For those voters like myself that voted for a change in 2006 that never happened, not only do we want the page turned, we are asking for a new chapter.

Obama shows himself on a path to greatness

Barack Obama’s win in Iowa might be the revealing pulse beating elsewhere in the nation; there is a feeling that many like myself were waiting to see how the voters in Iowa would receive him. It is somewhat clear now that there is a real momentum behind Mr. Obama. Like others, I have been reluctant to embrace his candidacy; I had hoped that Al Gore would put his hat in the ring; because that has not happened, I’m drawn toward Barack Obama. His tenacity, courage, and aura of magic certainly have crossed political lines projecting a feeling to many that Barack Obama is on a path toward greatness.
