I just read an article re: Obama with reference to Dr. Sam Vaknin. Whoever wrote this article seems to think the American people are a bunch of sheep who can be led by one person, or persons, without any struggle. This is absolutely not true. What the author seems to forget is that there is a whole segment of middle Americans, like myself, who would not put up with this type of thing. They are usually Christians, or believers, and love their country, America.


To think that Obama is the only one who has had a rough beginning is tremendously erroneous. If you were to talk to any number of people, they too have had a rough beginning but because of their faith in God and America, they have overcome much.

My personal feeling about Obama is that he is just a man who took on a tremendous responsibility in becoming the new president. I am not to be classified as a right or left winger, or middle of the road either. I am an American and a believer.

I hope the author gets the real message in what I wrote.
