Barack Obama is rebuilding America; let’s remember how far we have come with this honorable president. In a video called “The Road We’ve Traveled” made by Obama for America and narrated by Tom Hanks, citizens can see what Obama has done for America during his first four years as president.
This president came into office at one of the worst financial states our country has ever seen. It has been said the condition we were in was worse than the great depression. At the time, the unemployment rate was soaring higher than the inflation rate. Several auto companies, including general motors, were going to be gone and done for good. Health insurance was becoming a privilege for wealthy people, rather than an option for every American, due to the cost.
Obama started in a rough time, but he made many wise and significant changes for America in order to get us back on our feet and begin rebuilding our country. He had the worst time with the automobile industry – half of the nation said yes, help them out while the other half said no leave the auto industry alone. Obama came from a family with financial struggles and knew if he didn’t help them out, jobs would be lost and families would be ruined.
The healthcare bill is a project that isn’t appealing to the eye for all Americans. It has made some progress with helping citizens who have preexisting conditions and senior citizens who can’t afford it. The good points override the bad points in this bill, but some people still fail to see that.
President Obama finally gave America the closure it needed when Osama Bin Laden was killed by American soldiers. Families with anger and need for justice were granted relief, and they were given the chance to move on with life by receiving the closure they needed since the 9/11 bombing events.
President Obama has rebuilt our country so all citizens can start to live the American dream again. He made many changes and finished some that our country needed.
President Clinton, Joe Biden and many other wise people in our country are supporting President Obama in his plan to rebuild America. The next step in this plan is for all of America to support him on his campaign and continue to accept him; only then can we all rebuild America together and make it capable for all of us to begin living the American Dream once again.
