President Obama: History will view him as a kind compassionate man

talking abou the previous post from max stan from politico:

this is so well said I will copy it and put it in my blog...the ronnie republic...I wish I could write like that.

President Obama will go down in history--not just as the first Aftrican-American President--but as someone who has included a new group of people in the political conversaiton.  My teacher said--it used to be--just the rich old white guys were the only ones making the decisions but it is not that way any more.

President Obama went even farther and included women, handicapped, low-income....all kinds of people that had previously been talked at or talked about or talked to once in a while.

Now, everyone is part of the political conversation of the United States of America.

And guess what--these people vote, fact, they are the majority of voters.

The dinos and "the folks" Bill meets that he is so busy looking out for do not make up the voting majority of our country.  President Obama knows this.  That is why he is the President and Bill is not--he couldnever be because he does not represent most of the people.  On his meet and greet portion of his tours, his gig with Dennis Miller, the tickets are 500 dollars...that was the price in San Diego.

As evidenced every evening, to many except himself, the man is out of touch with reality.

The problem---he is dangerous because he uses his podium to stir up fear for his own gain when he could use it to give out needed information.

Another important point is that empathy is not the same as personal experience and most people understand that if at least by intuition. 

Even if Obama or Ghandi, or O'Riley or whoever didn't have the same life experiences as person BLANK it doesn't mean they can't understand what they've been through. 

Sure Obama's life is very different than many black youth growing up in rough parts of America (for starters he's 50 + years old) but as far as those communities are concerned he's lived his life in a way that is sufficient to display a great deal of empathy for them and their struggles. 

After all, despite what you may think of him, you have to recognize that in his early twenties right out of some pretty good colleges with a but load of charisma and intelligence he decided to go into community organizing in America's crumbling inner city in the 1980's when they were (by all objective measures) a lot grittier than today. 

People like to vilify him for community organizing but when you're a 20 something and it's the go-go 80's where all of the action and power playing is happening on Wall Street and corporate America it says a lot about empathizing with the less fortunate for you to pass all of that up for what especially at the time was a rather thankless job. Let's try to remember that despite our personal bias most people very high up in politics did in fact get into it because they care about people, even if you think they are wrong on everything else (I even admit this about GWB who I can't stand).
