Photo of the Day – Obama Martin Luthor King MLK Day Painting. Artwork By Ben Heine. Beautiful Piece

Obama Martin Luthor King MLK Day Painting By Ben Heine

Absolutely gorgeous painting.

Martin Luthor King Jr. and Barack Obama together in this amazing painting by Ben Heine via DevianArt. Two major events collided recently that are absolutely incredible: The 2nd inauguration of the first ever black President transpired on the same day as Martin Luthor King Jr. Day, a day that celebrates all MLK did for the civil rights of minorities and African Americans in America.

It was a historical moment of epic proportions whose historical impact cannot be denied by anyone. Martin Luthor King Jr. paved the way for Barack Obama’s and other blacks who aspire to the highest office in the land; and gives them hope that they can too, one day, lay claim to it. Hopefully it will be someone like Herman Cain, Condoleezza Rice, Mia Love, Allen West, Collin Powell, Tim Scott or Bobby Jindel… But I digress.

This is an absolutely gorgeous, beautiful painting. Kudos to artist Ben Heine of DeviantArt for drawing it. Check out his DeviantArt profile and give him some love!

Obama 2nd Inauguration Speech Full Video

Obama 2nd Inaugural Wallpaper Artistic Crowds At Washington DC National Mall

…. An absolutely awesome photo of President Obama entering massive crowds for his 2nd inauguration speech.

Obama full video of the President’s 2nd inauguration speech on January 21st 2013 is posted below. This is the full speech of President Obama who was sworn in today, on Martin Luthor King Day, to the start of his second full term in office as the 44th President of the United States and the first ever black President to serve two full terms in office!

No matter what you think of President Obama and his policies, this is a historic moment of epic proportions, especially for African Americans and mixed race kids, as well as minorities in general. The fact that President Obama’s inauguration came on Martin Luthor King Day was truly icing on the cake. As soon as I can find it I will post the full video of all the day’s events, and another video to replace the stupid New York Times who seem to have the monopoly on youtube political events for some unknown reason.

President Obama Afghanistan Transition Press Conference With Hamid Karzai January 11 2013

President Obama Shakes Hands With Afghan President Karzai January 2013

Discussing the transition to full Afghan sovereignty.

President Obama met with Afghan leader President Hamid Karzai to discuss the transition from American-led and coalition military forces to that of the Afghan Military and Government, Police, etc. taking full responsibility for their own country of Afghanistan. A transition that will take place, as President Obama has promised, at the end of 2014, or the start of 2015. At which point America will shift to an advisory, assist and training role in the country.

It has been a long road full of hardship, death, triumph, success, failure, peace and war, and now the end of America’s 2nd longest war (11.3 years so far, the longest is the Vietnam War at 19.4 years) and our main mission objectives, have been completed and it is time to exit. I don’t think anyone truly wants to stay in the war much longer, but we have made many strides in the country at deep sacrifice for both, while also improving many aspects for both, and eliminating many threats. It will be good to finally have the war over. I supported the war then, support it now, and do not regret the war. As the Middle East has seen with all of the recent developments and turmoil throughout, it seems impossible for the Middle East to govern itself without asssistance from other countries. We have assisted, and hopefully the Afghans will be able to do the rest and oust it of extremist elements. Time will tell.
