So, here's the thing: Barack Obama inspires me. He inspired me the first time i heard him, almost three years ago, when it was all this fun campaign, rosy and free of any real worrying. And he still inspires me today, with the way he handles a torturing presidency and the lethal heritage left for him by the idiot who stole the Oval Office for the previous 8 years. Barack Obama changed the way i view some parts of my life. And he made me believe, for the first time in many many years, that there are still leaders with a heart in the right place.

I never expected miracles. I knew exactly who's the man, and how he's going to operate. It doesn't mean that i'm completely happy with him. There are things i wish he had done different. But this was a tough, tough year and i know one thing for sure: He's doing the best anyone could have done, and, i'll say it again, his heart is in the right place. He is not a "sell-out", he is not "weak", he is none of the horrible things that so many people on the Left say about him for months now.

Recently, it became almost impossible to say anything positive about this president. Not even if you back it up with facts and real news. So instead of just letting all that toxic to really burn me, i decided to create this little corner, where people can just share their support for the president, without being mocked and put down. It's not a Forbidden-Obama-Criticism-Zone by any mean, and there won't be any rules. Only one thing will be unacceptable: Disrespect towards the president or other posters. This is the president of The United States. The first black president. A terrific man who's been a target of an awful hate machine since the day he decided to run for the presidency. And he'll be shown the respect he deserve here. The same goes for the people who support him. There are plenty of blogs all around, where it's almost required to insult Obama's supporters, so if anyone wish to do that - Take it somewhere else.

I'll try to post as often as i can (i spend half of my time on the other side of the ocean, so there will be time-zone difference occasionally), and i hope you all feel at home here. Thank you for stopping by.



  1. Thanks. Visiting this blog will be a welcome respite from all the vitriol. Thanks for setting it up. Already feels "homey."

    And love the Friday Night Lights title!

  2. Thanks for starting this blog. I, for one, will be a frequent visitor.

  3. thank you. i really needed this. as you said Obama is facing the toughest presidency in 70 years and i too think he is doing an admirable job under the hardest, harshest circumstances. i am so proud of our president. i am 46 years old and this is the first time i had ever felt motivated to buy an airline ticket and fly to DC to attend the inauguration. i am still as thrilled as that day. thanks, mark dutcher

  4. In my life, which began during FDR's second term, I can honestly say that there has never been a more progressive president than President Barack Hussein Obama. Under his watch we will see a health care system that does not allow insurance companies to deny you because of pre-existing condition, place caps on the amount of your coverage, or frivolously deny your claims. Everyone will be able to buy insurance and it will be affordable. The best part is that over the years it will get better, as have Social Security and Medicare.

    Under his leadership, DADT will be repealed. Under his leadership, Guantanamo will be closed. Under his leadership, our troops will leave Iraq. Under his leadership, we will not only avoid a second great depression, but we will change both the nature of our industries and provide new, worthwhile jobs for our citizens.

    I can go on and on. But for now, I am just happy to be able to post something positive about our President and know it will be appreciated.

    Thanks BWD.

  5. Thank you so much for starting this. It is very discouraging for me to read all the things against Obama. I am discouraged right now but I believe Obama will grow and learn. I still have great faith in him. Not everyone around him though.

  6. i have likely felt more beat up than Barack has, with the crazy degree of PR launches against everything he does from the RW. When Progressives began to nip at his heels, I felt like a mom watching her kid get bullied. It hurt.
    BWD's diaries really uplifted my spirits. I am glad I don't have to sink into the loss of all of those great photographs. I don't know where or how you get them, but they are balm for a troubled world -- esp. to those of us who relish a place to just continue the uplifting effort. THX, BWD.

  7. YEAH!!! I was hoping you would do something like this. We need it and shouldn't have to fight so hard for it. So thank you, thank you, thank you!!


  8. Thank you so much for starting this blog. Kindred spirits unite!

  9. Thank you so much. I just found this after tearfully reacting on the other site. You did the right thing and our President makes this 68 yr old's heart glad.
    He is one of the best we have ever had and I will never look down on brains and goodness.

  10. I'm looking forward to your posts, many thanks to snowbird42 for the pointer!

    I'm adding a pointer from my blog to you.

  11. After reading DailyKos today...I really need a break from that place. It really has gone insane. I don't know if it's a concerted effort by rightwingers,LaRouche followers or what.

    Thank you for starting this blog
