Moving Forward
By Anita Britto, Auckland

November 9, 2012

Moving Forward

In an office that is Oval within a House that’s White
You would expect to see a man like Eisenhower, Dwight
A man who’s calm and patient but also knows to deal
With tough nail-biting moments assigned to none but SEAL
 

For in the highest office where one man will preside
You want to see a man who’s tough – who’s tested and who’s tried
A man who acts with self-restraint and has respect for all
Who knows his foreign policy apart from Basketball
 

I guess we’d squirm and hide in shame if we vote for one
Who can’t respect our allies – who’s tactless and makes fun
Who can’t value each culture –who’s totally out of touch
And cannot reach out to the poor because he has too much
 

Apart from strength of character and intuitive skills
The man who wins I hope will help to foot the doctor’s bills
And if he cares about the men who slog to make ends meet
I’m sure “George”  on your Dollar Bill will waive out to Wall Street
 

The sculpted Four on Mount Rushmore would want to see a man
With Presidential qualities – A man who knows he can
A man who has the intellect – A man we all can trust
To represent all countrymen – who’s transparent and just
 

He wouldn’t shoot his mouth off and would give peace a chance
With tolerance, compassion and his unifying glance
The Statue crying for Liberty under those skies so Blue
Would want a Man who’s dignified, articulate and true
 

With timeless traits like honesty and morals that are high
Respect he will command from all not only in Hawaii
He’s always put his country first and didn't play the fiddle
While signing all those Bailout bills his thumbs he didn't twiddle
 

I love a man who keeps his cool – who's fully in control
Moving Forward –  All committed with his heart and soul
And with those “Atlas Shoulders” he will restore our dream
He’s done a lot in 4 years and I hold him in esteem
 

Now some of you might not agree with all that I have said
I respect your point of view and will not turn deep Red
If you beg to differ – if you feel disinclined
You are entitled to your thoughts – feel free to speak your mind


From Antipodean land I write and you might wonder why
The polls within those 50 states is giving me a high
Our PM, John, I'm sure would say - very matter of fact
Those bills signed “Resolutely”  have a far reaching impact.

I would trade Mr. Obama to PM Manmohan at this time.

A. S. Mathew, U.S.A.Sunday, November 11, 2012
When President Franklin D. Roosevelt took the presidency of the U.S., the U.S. was faced with a torturing great depression of 1929
the U.S. unemployment rate was 25%, and many social prgrammes like the "food stamps" were not in operation. He delivered the challenging message " we have nothing to fear but fear itself". GOD ALMIGHTY used him and the U.S. was emerged out of the great depression. Now, President Obama is faced with a chronic unemployment problem around 8% (7.9 now), highly depreciated asset and stock values of the public-very huge national debt (73% debt of the GDP)-Republican dominated House of Representatives-highly reduced number of the middle calss etc make this current situation far serious. He is going to be faced with gridlocks.
Can his oratory skills applied for the election time be practically used to solve this national economic crsis we are faced with today?

When Obama won the first time Everest conquering moment for him and matter of celebration for all blacks and minorities. It was the culmination of the aspirations of the many who fought so hard and long for their civil rights. Martin Luther King Jr.would R.I.P.
His re-election has confirmed America is more equal opportunity land than it was ever before and this is so very special. Its so very special because we, those look from the outside always believed in the American values but found them always preaching them not practising and we want them to succeed in putting their values in practice. There will be travails along the way but Obama re-election is the validation of hope of equal opportunity and slap in the face of those who think they and their values are superior.

America built on Christian and Western values
Now on a downward spiral
From Obamanation to Talibanization
When secular forces diverge
Forced into a fiscal cliff
Gone will be the euphoria
Fast and forward, forward and fast
Finally re-emerging in strength
As conservative principles converge.

Until then an Obama in the White House
With guests as far as the Muslim Brotherhood
While Iran laughs at American weaknesses
Plotting to deploy
International appeasement all will be gone.

Despite all criticism Obama made it to the second term, how come? Americans felt republican Romney worse than Obama or it’s just that known devil is better than unknown angel? Or who knows, Bilderberg might have struck again!

Obama is Re-elected for birth pills and destruction of mankind. He is now facing the fiscal cliff. He is now increasing taxes which will lead to a second recession. If he fails to compromise on fiscal cliff then there will be increase in unemployment rate to 9.1%. When he came to office in 2008 he did not know what is wall street. He said wall street is not important Main street is important. The market collapsed from 8000 points to 6000 points, Obama surrendered and said that wall street is important and asked economy chairman Mr.Bernanke and Mr. Geithner for help. America under Obama is divided. If the businessmen tax is increased there will be sell out of shares and collapse of the stock market and the prices for commodity will rise again worldwide. America is printing every month 50 Billion dollars to circulate the currency and keep the economy running with a growth rate of 2% and 47 million people living on government dependent on food stamps and unemployment benefits. Eventually you will see the collapse of the dollar. American economy is the engine of the world economy, every individual will have the effect of the collapse of the American economy. Just watch the next fight in the congress for the tax reforms and closing of the loophole and the immigration policy. There will be another grid lock for Obama. He can never move forward. He has wasted two years in the congress fighting for Obama care.

Catholic, Mangalore/USASaturday, November 10, 2012
Ask the Catholic Institutes if they feel the same way? Obama's Health Care policies have left so many Catholic Institutions pleading for Religious Liberties. This is "Moving Backward"... Under his administration's HHS Mandate all the Catholic Institutes are forced to cover cost for their employees Abortion, Sterilization, Contraception. As parents, we are worried about the trillions of debt this administration has accumulated and the interest that will be paid by generations of youngsters to come. With 23 million unemployed, with lowest Labor participation rate in 31 years, with a failed Stimulus plan, and saving Auto Industry at the cost of Tax payers we are worse off than we were when he took office. The only glimmer of hope is his Foreign Policy. He is not a war mongering President.. Hopefully his willingness to work with International Community will bring peace in the world..
