My night and day of mourning (and some bitter comments)

Hail and Farewell my good, gracious and wise President. I respect, admire and trust you.  I have been proud to be an American under your Presidency.

Hail and farewell President Obama and your family.

You have modeled and exemplified the very best of American values.

You have graced and enhanced the White House with your dignity, grace and examples.

You have been not only the "First Family", but also the "Best Family".


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

President Obama, you have governed far closer to the Centre/Right than I would have liked.

But the odds against you have been formidable.

You have been castigated as a "socialist"  (not that that is inherently bad from my perspective!), but I ask "what convinced socialist would have bailed out General Motors and Fiat/Chrysler; what socialist would have continued President George W Bush's programme to bail out the super-banks under the TARP - Troubled Assets Relief Programme; what socialist would have designed the Affordable Care Act -  which is rooted in the private sector?

Republicans have falsely alleged that you were not a native born American, and that you are secretly a Muslim.  ( I would not give a shit if we had a Muslim President; provided that she or he upheld the Constitution).

ABOVE ALL ELSE, Republicans from Senator Mitch McConnell down have had one guiding principle during the eight years of your splendid Presidency. It has nothing to do with the merits of your programmes..

Rather it can be summarized in six words; "Resist Obama because he is Black"

Good and gracious President Obama.  Wise and moderate President Obama.

You have served us so well.  But you could not succeed with the post-Reagan Republicans. It was Reagan's "Southern Strategy" which led to the modern Republican white supremacist ideology which decided that you were GUILTY BECAUSE BLACK.

If this offends my personal friends who are Republicans then sit on it and shut-up. I have no interest in hearing from you.

You have sown a wind with your unreasoned and unreasonable opposition to President Obama.

 You will reap a whirlwind under Donald Trump. 

Thank God for President Obama and his godly and gracious family.

Don't bother to turn off the lights.  Trump has already done this,
