#ObamaBecause: Top 10 Reasons why 44 was so Awesome!

Read below the slideshow for explanation why this is being presented on Ghion Journal. Consider this article the Serena Williams missive, expert backhands and all. With the intro out of the way, this is a top 10 list of what made Obizi such a great president! Let’s proceed with the compliments:

#ObamaBecause 1
He was soooo cool! He sang Al Green's song and he and Michelle were so adorable and cute together. Meanwhile over 100,000 Syrians were killed by his orders and over a million displaced.

I have to admit, this is a bit of a vent session on a Friday evening after being treated to a bunch of Obama loyalists who for years held their tongues as Obama was bombing one nation after another only to now speak up as our Orangutan-in-Chief Trump is continuing the same war in Syria that Obama started This is dedicated to my “liberal’ friends who are condemning rightly Trump for his depraved actions in Syria yet they refuse to utter a word of even the mildest rebuke to Obama, you know, the man who started the war. I hope people who are reading this don’t take my condemnation of Obama as an embrace of Trump, just because I don’t like spinach does not mean I like cucumbers.

This article is titled #ObamaBecause as a response to Obama loyalists who are quick to rave about Barack but when you confront them with “what did he do exactly” their response is always first “he had so much class and grace” followed up by talking points that they heard on MSNBC which falls apart the minute you dig past their first sentence. So on with the gallery of #ObamaBecause; forward this to any Obama loyalist who refuses to see that Obama was a fraud and share this on social media with your own versions of #ObamaBecause followed up with a backhanded compliment to our former commander of teleprompters.

I wrote about an article titled “Our Road to Damascus (link) earlier in very somber terms, but there is only so much we can do to rage against the machine. At some point, I have to give this whole thing to a higher power and just pray that we are not being led to our collective termination for a hot war with Russia will be our eradication by way of nuclear mushrooms. Although this article is presented as a satire, it’s really the truth for all the statements made in the slideshow are verifiable and can be backed up. An open challenge to any Obama loyalist, I am challenge you to write below and, using sources or your own words, impeach the statements I made about Obama.

The thing about Obama is this; only overseers are allowed into the master’s house.

If you liked this article, share it on social media using #ObamaBecause and send out your own versions of #ObamaBecause rightly mocking the fraud that was Obama as a way of saying “thank you”, in a backhanded way, for destroying Syria.

This is the “adult conversation on race” the cavernous Obama was supposed to lead and promised to have. Imagine if we actually had leaders that led this conversation instead of demagoguing race for the sake of self-enrichment. Forewarning, the intro is jarring because identity and race are twin “third rails” that burn all that try to lead the discussion. But stick around and listen with an open mind and heart and you will see a whole other perspective and perhaps find a new way forward.

Once thoroughly entangled in politics and a partisan loyalist, a mugging by way of reality shed political blinders from Teodore's eyes and led him on a journey to fight for universal justice.

Teodrose was born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by the communist Derg junta. The great grandson five generations removed of Atse (emperor) Tewodros Kassa II, the greatest king of Ethiopia, Teodrose is clearly influenced by the history and his connection to Ethiopia. Through his experiences growing up as first generation refugee in America, Teodrose writes poignantly about the universal experiences of joys, pains and a hope for a better tomorrow that binds all of humanity.

Teodrose has written extensively about the intersection of politics, economic policies, identity, and history. He is the author of "Serendipity's Trace" and newly released "Soul to Soil", two works that inspect the ways we are dissected as a people and shows how we can overcome injustice through the inclusive vision of togetherness.
