      Thanks for all the "behind-the-scenes" shots of the President, his office, staff, etc. It's a great treasure for us.

      I would hope at least some future Barack Obama Presidential Library, but it's too early to be calling that. It's only been one year.

      The finest of American Presidents ever comes with an unusual handicap: to some of his people, it is difficult to grasp the sheer magnitude of his personality.

      Barack Obama is, for instance, a versatile and visionary politician, an athlete and a highly intelligent intellectual & voracious reader.
      That puts a high demand on the empathy and intelligence of the citizens & voters to understand their leader: it is like asking them to understand a man gifted with the imaginative power of Steven Spielberg who at the same time is in possession of the punch of Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali.

      It would be a tragic thing, only to realize later, in two decades say, what a great man has been amongst us, and has tried to lead us, while we lost time and energy in quarrels and jealousy. And in trying to grasp his identity.

      Barack Obama reminds me of Moses: at the start of his ministry his sacred zeal was misunderstood. And while he was leading his people to the Promised Land, they were constantly on the brink of deserting him.

      Go with him to the Promised land and leave us alone. Your man is a pathological liar corrupt, unintellectual(have you seen his university grades), dishonest, community organizer. If he was an intelligent man, he wouldn't be saying stupid things every time he's without a teleprompter. We don't have to wait 20 years, we see know what he is, the most polirized president ever. And, he is the worst president ever. Nothing is more important for him, than his ideology. And, comparing him to Moses????????? Please.
      Your discription is what people thought of Lenin, too.

      Hey KarlenM, if you're going to call someone "unintellectual" - at least spell it correctly while doing so. :]

      Nota Bene: in the President's weekly Address of Sat. 6th,
      he is underlining the importance of small businesses,
      they are the creators of new wealth,
      they are the purest form of the American Dream.

      The President has proposals to support Small Businesses,
      with legislation and subsidy.

      He gives examples of businesses that started
      in a small house last year and are florishing today,
      exporting products and hiring new people.
