Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on President Obama’s Perspectives. It needs to be at least 2250 words.
Barack Obama is the 44th president of the United States. Having a Kenyan father and spending some time in Indonesia, Obama is considered as a representative of the American Story of success (White House, 2011). He is also the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. He made history in 2008 when he won the U.S. presidential election. But who is Barack Obama, the individual? Answering that question is much more difficult than it seems. Belonging to a family headed by a Kenyan father and his childhood spent in Jakarta definitely separates him from the long line of presidents hailing, almost exclusively, from the native land.
More fruitful for understanding who he is and what he is about is the portrait of a highly ambitious politician with the self-assurance that stems from a stellar Ivy League record, a wife to match, and early electoral successes. These are the traits that do not, as an understatement, represent the average African American. Hence his ‘African Americanism’ is not part of his core identity. He is analogous to any previous or forthcoming American president in all relevant ways. We must, however, agree to acknowledge this accomplishment and consider it a benchmark for years to come.
Despite his African American reality, Obama was able to attract scores of people to support him before being the president-elect and even before being the first choice candidate for the democrats. The enormity of his achievement is summarized by the fact that not only is he the first African American president, he is also one of the few presidents to live up to his word post-election.Michelle Obama has also been a source of inspiration for many Americans. Not only is she the first African American lady, but she is also a philanthropist, activist, and ardent supporter of her husband’s policies.
Her contribution is not limited to the advice she gives to her husband on the administrative front, rather his unwavering support and love for the president act as a source of peace and serenity. The president often quotes her to be the source of love and calm in her life. She is not only fulfilling her duties as a first lady, she is also fulfilling her responsibilities as a mother, wife, and patron of the family to the fullest.
