Every president inherits challenges. Few have faced so many. Four years later, our enemies have been brought to justice. Our heroes are coming home. Assembly lines are humming again. There are still challenges to meet, children to educate, a middle class to rebuild — but the last thing we should do is turn back now.
So… other presidents have faced 9/11, the Cold War, WWII, the Great Depression, WWI, the various other recessions of the 20th century, and etcetera… but we’re to understand that few presidents have faced challenges on par with those “inherited” by The One. Huh. That doesn’t reek of hubris at all.
Yes, that’s our Morgan we’re hearing in the background. Last July, Morgan wanted us to remember that Barack had a ‘very white’ mama and is only half-black. Translation: You white folk hate him just because he’s biracial. Or something.
“First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him … they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America,” Freeman said. “There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
“He is being purposely, purposely thwarted by the Republican Party, who started out at the beginning of his tenure by saying, ‘We are going to do whatever is necessary to make sure that he only has one term,'” Freeman said. “That means they will not cooperate with him on anything. So to say he’s ineffective is a misappropriation of the facts… “That means they will not cooperate with him on anything. So to say he’s ineffective is a misappropriation of the facts.”
Weeell, Morgan, not really. We couldn’t give a rip about the man’s ethic origins, not to mention he couldn’t relate to a black American with a Hooked On Phonics primer in Ebonics. As for not giving him a chance? He has repeatedly refused GOP invitations to set down and talk. To sum it up: AWOL on Jobs; AWOL on Defense; AWOL on Benghazi; AWOL Underwear Bomber; AWOL Deepwater Horizon; AWOL Fort Hood; AWOL… Wait. Beer Summit: Present and on time.
Really? This guy has faced challenges few presidents have faced? Ooh, Nobody knoooows the trouble I’ve seen. Pah-leeeze!
If SNL wants to parody something, they could do worse than a Morgan Freeman Obama ad.
