Old spirituals like this have helped African Americans stay in the struggle for centuries. I share it tonight with those who - like me - might feel a bit battle weary from the events of the recent days.
But more importantly, its my ode to President Obama tonight. Ain't gonna let nobody turn me 'round from continuing to see how hard you fight every day, not for your own glory, but for the people who are least able to protect themselves, who don’t have lobbyists in this town, who don’t have lawyers working on the tax code for them -- working stiffs out there, ordinary folks who are struggling every day.
Rest well tonight President Obama. You done good today. We have your back and aren't going anywhere!

Because, as we see, the barriers are clearly presented and the remedy is clearly prescribed.
There just should be no more doubt (though - sigh - there is. I, unfortunately, just read Steven D over at Boo's. I will say this, though...if one EVER wants to see pretty much ALL of a poutrager's whine beautifully condensed in one neat little package - THAT is the post).
He's not perfect.
But we DO have the right man on our side.
And, one more for you, Ms. Pants...
