Competence,something we ain't seen in awhile

Competence. Something we ain't seen is awhile is how I view what is going on regarding the American publics thoughts, both positive and negative regarding our new President. Think back and try to come up with a President who has the educational, social and personal qualities that shape Barak Obama. Well I did it today and the closest I came is John F. Kennedy. And I only know about him through pictures and print of him since I was only 10 years old at the time of his death. All of the Presidents since him were lacking in at least one of the aforementioned qualities. Some had qualities that post Presidency left many Americans wondering how they ever could have voted for them. Don't take me wrong in the fact the much good was done, but overall when you graph the things that were done in Washington and many state houses around this country for the past 46 years were done to economically favor corporations and the people who owned and ran them. So here we are, with a President who views the world and our country differently than many before him. He's intelligent and politically savvy and has no agenda but the betterment of all people wether they are United Sates citizens or not. Its only been a month since he swore to uphold the constitution and the laws of the country and just like many Presidents before him those that voted for him wait daily to see if he is any different than the ones that came before him. I myself think that we have a pretty good shot at having a different opinion of America when he is done. And then where do we find another that thinks and believes like he does?
