Hurricane Sandy Provides Moment of Leadership for President Obama - Page 2
The re-election of Barack Obama is a matter of great urgency. Not only are we in broad agreement with his policy directions, we also see in him what is absent in Mitt Romney – a first-rate political temperament and a deep sense of fairness and integrity. A two-term Obama Administration will leave an enduringly positive imprint on political life. It will bolster the ideal of good governance and a social vision that tempers individualism with a concern for community.
Every Presidential election involves a contest over the idea of America. Obama’s America – one that progresses, however falteringly, toward social justice, tolerance, and equality – represents the future that this country deserves.”
America has an opportunity to tough it out as the U.S. economy revives and proves once again it’s a great nation. The not to subliminal references of racism, sexism, fear and economic separatism used during the republican primary and presidential campaign will not be enough to change the fact that America is changing.
So white males in particular need not fear the impending change as Hispanics, Blacks, Asians and those of mixed race represent and reflect America’s evolving values relative to all who live within her borders.
