The Obama administration has been personal, beginning with meeting him in the rope line at the 2006 Harkin Steak Fry where I took this photo with my flip phone.
I haven’t agreed with him on some issues, particularly with his prosecution of our ongoing wars and expansion of spending on the nuclear complex. In the end, he is a Democrat and so am I. We share more values than I probably realize.
People have oddly moved on from the fact he wouldn’t name the successor to Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. This blocking play was a legitimate use of power that created injustice not only for President Obama but for us all.
Godspeed Barack Obama. Thank you for your work. We expect more great things from you during the coming years.
