This is what I call a PRESIDENT

This is what I call a PRESIDENT  |  Chicago, United States  |  It is not my style to post political material on my blog, since I do cover travel and lifestyle. But this time I feel the need to do so. This is what I call a PRESIDENT with all the meaning of the word. Moving FORWARD.  The last four minutes of OBAMA’s Presidential Speech, last nigh, addressing every single minority that makes this great country (because we are each ourselves a minority) it is what explains it all “It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or White, Hispanic or Asian. Native American or young or old, rich or poor, abled or disabled, gay or straight. You can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.” -President Obama. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
