Dedicated to President Obama…. may tomorrow’s win continue the recovery efforts you have been engaged in during your first 4 years in office. Even though you walked into a White House that was a Hot Mess, you faced the road ahead bravely.

It all began with Cash for Clunkers and continued with the fall of several ruthless and cold dictators.

Some are being malicious, trying to down play what you’ve done, trying to slander your name, but many will not be swayed away.

Blessed be, Mr. President.
