Why President Obama is a True American Leader?

I like many people across Shakopee and Scott County watched President Obama's DNC Acceptance Speech. Pres. Obama has proved to me he is one of the greatest leaders of the new century.

I like many people across Shakopee and Scott County watched President Obama's DNC Acceptance Speech Last Night. I am now convinced we need him now more than ever. Pres. Obama has proved to me he is one of the greatest leaders of the new century. Why Do I say That? He made decisions that were not popular at that time, but made our country better for doing it. He bailed out GM which even I had doubts of the decision at the time in 2009, but he saved 1 million car manufacturing jobs. The car industry is now expanding here at home and back on top with record sales. Another Example, He made the decision to send Navy Seal Team 6 into Pakistan when every foreign policy expert did not believe it was viable, Seal Team 6 captured and killed Osama Bin Laden. Why Do I say Pres. Obama envisions the best of America?. I always believe in the values of the American Spirit. When we as Americans are down, We do not give up and say the challenges are too impossible, We as Americans Fight Harder and Come Back Stronger. Pres. Obama believes that also. I have known if you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything. President Obama and First Lady Obama are living examples of that. Americans in its history has proven when the people believe in themselves, their community and their nation, Americans have overcame challenges worse than what we face now. It is a critical time in our history that we need all Americans to come together reguardless of political or social differences to work together to make America great again. Change is not something that comes overnight or is done by one person or one entity. Change takes time and the determination of everyone from the public sector to the private sector, and from Wall Street to Main Street. When President Ronald Regan reffered to America as" A Shining City on a Hill". President Obama wants to bring America back to that "Shining City on a Hill". I will be voting for President Obama on November 6th and I urge you not as Democrats, Republicans or Independents, but as Americans to give Pres. Obama on November 6th a second term to help continue the road "Forward" to a better tommorow for all Americans.

@ Mr. Ondich you are a DFLer so really, President Obama's speech didn't make you decide LAST night that he's the right choice. It is your party's candidate. 1 MILLION jobs please, how many have been lost in other sectors? Have you ever been to Detroit? It is not pretty, it's desolate, it is not a place to live. HAVE you bothered to look at our debt? It has set records as the highest ever. So no...to you and to the President, no to four more of the same.

He bailed out GM to reward the unions, he screwed the shareholders, he screwed the taxpayer, and most of the new auto jobs are in China, Fail, Fail, Fail, nothing more need be said. Get him outta OUR White House.......

Josh, you are part of the problem. You look at the warm a fuzzy, you do not have a clue on what use to make America work. Josh, does the US Government generate wealth? Do, they create jobs from generated wealth? President Obama is a complete and utter failure. He does not understand anything about business. He thinks that the middle class generate Jobs. Heres the best part, he thinks he's from Chicago. That Candy Butt is from Hype Park... the neighborhood around the University of Chicago. Even better, he is a Socialist. Josh let me help you, please read the next points: The top 1% is $343,000 and up. These are the people who have the businesses and create jobs. They also pay 37% of federal income taxes. Top 10% is $112,000 and up. They also own smaller business and pay 70% of federal income taxes. President Obama wants to redistribute wealth. He thinks he is a modern day Robin Hood. He is a weak leader and he needs to go. Hey PATCH, why do you not have a conservative writer.

Oh anybody look at the this one percenter and demand he get it? President Obama, Joe Biden and most of the Democrats in Congress (Kennedys) are all one percenters. Funny that nobody is taking these democrats to task like they do the republicans. They aren't paying their fair share and they protect themselves too.

Reverse Robin Hood, force the middle class to purchase health care AND fund the free 100% taxpayer funded health care for $100,000 and up union/government employees exempted in Obama scare. If a person making $30,000 is forced to purchase health care, so should those making more regardless of where they work, the government savings for employee free health care could go back to the people so those that cant afford it could via lower taxation.
