Obama, the Messiah…Stop it People!

I’ve had enough…I’m truly tired of folks refusing to take responsibility for their own lives.
It started during the campaign that if Barack Obama was elected, many had the idea that their lives would miraculously change.
Well, he is now President, Commander & Chief Barack Obama and his message never changed. Throughout his campaign, when you went to his website you were met with this quote, “I’m Asking You to Believe…Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington. I’m asking you to believe in yours.”
The message of his campaign was always an invitation to partner in Change. Personal responsibilities was not removed at the Inauguration. The inauguration was the start of a relationship with and for every American; the President’s part from the White House and your’s from your house.
If you’re looking for a Messiah than you’re totally missing the priviledge of personal responsibility.
I’ll go further than that…much of this is coming from the black community. What is this? The man is elected and y’all are talking about what he’d better do in this first week of office.
I know I’ve hit some hot buttons…so weigh in. Tell me, where is this coming from and what do you want from President Barack Obama? or what do you think about those who have this expectation of our President?
