President Obama and Hollywood
January 21, 2013 - President Obama's 2nd Term Begins
I watched the Presidential Inauguration. I did not vote for the President, but I always watch the inaugurations. They are historical no matter who the man and someday woman may be taking Office.
The speeches and prayers were eloquent and poignant. The music was patriotic and uplifting. The air of the people exhibited the spirit of America.
An admirable and appropriate celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day. I loved that the President held both Lincoln's Bible and Martin Luther King, Jr.s, traveling Bible.
Yet, can we believe what we see. I wish we could, but there is skepticism and doubt.
Holding onto the American Dream
I do not agree with President Obama’s political ideology, but, if we are all honest, none of us agree whole-heartedly with every President’s politics and decisions.
Even though I do not agree with the President on most issues, he is the President of the United States. I respect him as a man, his accomplishments, and his Office. I am, above all, an American.
I believe in “One Nation Under God,” but I am not too sure about the “Indivisible” part anymore. It seems our country is divided more now than it has ever been in my lifetime.
Can it turn around?
New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza points out President Obama's failures in his first term. Many of which were not seen on the biased liberal news media.
Dinesh D’Souza shows a different side of the Obama Presidency that we do not often see in the news media.
Hope for the Nation is Skeptical
When the President swore to uphold the Constitution, I question that. It seems that the liberal news media ignores a whole part of the country and makes it appear that the President does, too.
I am not sure the President cares about working with the Congress and Senate. One of the news commentators said that the President did not socialize with the Congress or the Senate – people who represent us. He did not have these men and women to the White House.
Who does he have in the White House? Hollywood celebrities. YouTube viral performers who once called our military killers and spewed hate for America. It makes me question who has the influence in our country. It seems if you are famous, you are “in” with the President.

Some Reasons for Doubt
I found it strange that President Obama, who proclaimed he was not for gay marriage in the beginning of his first term, changed his mind when he saw that Hollywood donations would not be coming in if he had not risen up for gay marriage toward the end of his first term. He was hailed and lauded for his decision. It made me angry that he used the gay community to get votes. He diminished people to campaign donations. He should have proclaimed this right to the gay community from the beginning, but no one seems to look at his past record.
He would rather go on David Letterman than meet with the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. As a matter of fact, I have never seen a President or his First Lady on so many of the popular talk shows. It makes me wonder about his priorities.
I do not doubt the influence of Hollywood on our country, but will it ever be held accountable? Not during this Presidency. The same people who shout for gun control profits on films and TV shows in destroying life and property with guns. They make “bad and evil” look cool. The same people who shout at the American people to give up their money and possessions to make everyone equal, even though everyone is not, compete in displays of ugly drama and flaunt their wealth and ability to escape their wrong-doing.
The great Hollywood finger points at us, and our President welcomes them to the White House while he rejects the Representatives of the People. I want to believe the President’s rhetoric, but his actions speak louder than his words.
Hollywood or the Issues
Do you think President Obama has spent too much time with Hollywood celebrities?
Hope for the Future - You Can Do it Mr. President
My prayer is that during his last term, he will shuck the Hollywood "gurus." I hope he will work with both sides of the aisle to heal this country and the great divide that seems to be getting wider and wider.
Mr. President, We the People need you to be on our side.
- Who Is to Blame for America's Economic Downfall?
So much political blame is going around for the demise of America's economic downfall. Who else should we be looking at for this debt? What is our personal responsibility in America's economic downfall?
- Christians' Reactions to Gays
When young gays come out, how should Christians react? Can gays be Christians? Does God love them unconditionally? Christians need to look at Jesus' teachings before judging.
