History was made one year ago tonight, as Barack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States, with fully 96 percent of the Black vote behind him.
We at SBPDL would like to congratulate Mr. Obama on his first year in office and wish him much more success in the White House, for he has not acted stupidly during his tenure thus far, but has given us many teachable moments that we believe will have a profound impact on the future of the country.
Even though we won't be invited to have a beer with Mein Obama at the White House, we will raise a glass to the president for in his interesting first year Obama has done a remarkable job in improving the vocational prospects of 50,000 Detroit citizens and in finally giving Washington DC a glimpse of what a real million man march looks like.
Stuff Black People Don't Like looks forward to the next 365Black days of Mein Obama's reign of power. If they were anything like the first 365, it will make for one hell of a year:
A year after he was elected as the US President, American citizens are less sure about Barack Obama, with the leader getting only 53 per cent job approval rating, says a latest opinion poll.
The US President is almost near the bottom of the list of elected presidents since World War II, ranked on the basis of their approval ratings one year after their initial election, a poll by US agency Gallup has said."Americans are much less positive than they were a year ago that President Barack Obama will be able to accomplish a number of challenges facing his administration.
In particular, far fewer Americans believe he will be able to heal political divisions and control federal spending," the poll said.
"Two-thirds of Americans now say the country is more deeply divided on major issues facing the country than it has been in the past several years, an increase of 11 points from the record-low reading on this last November," it said.
However, Obama's popularity with white people may be slipping he still remains in the 90s with Black people - as of November 1, 2009 - with a 91 percent approval rating. In the eyes of Black people, even 50,000 lining the streets of Detroit for stimulus checks, he can do no wrong.
