With his first week under his belt, the forty-fourth president Barack Obama has hit the ground running. With all the promises made through out the campaign trail and slogans for change, many people are watching to see witch promises were true. The expectations are up high for Mr. Obama, our nation's economy is down, the united state's reputation to the world is diminished, and we have environmental and power issues. This is what our president is focusing on as main issues.

BeforeMr. Obama can acomplish all of this MONEY is needed! Today the u.s senate will have a debate over the stimulus plan produced by the Obama administration. The bill was passed by the house, but now in the senate there is to be "The Debate for the ages" says "The Christian Science Monitor."

I was delighted to hear today on channel six news that the president is making education one of his top priorities. Even though the president hasn't started on any plans he has on the subject he has already had results. In the exponent There was a short study done by "Ray Friedman a management professor at Vanderbilt University, has documented an Obama effect." The article goes on about how the influence of a positive black role model effect the African American population. The preliminary trials of the study show that the gap between caucasian and black students is closing. The article goes on to say that with a Black president in office many of the stereotpyes of African American's are shedding. Now students who find these stereotpyes as hendering can now focus on their studies and excell.


I am very excited to see what Obama and his administration are going to do. It isn't the best time for America right now and we need someone to put us on track. Although one thing I don't like seeing is all the stimulus packages. I have seen that a lot of companies have been squandering thier money from them. I just want the responsible and essential businesses getting the money. It looks like Obama is taking some needed steps to put us on the right track. I hope that a lot of his plans succeed and our nation becomes stronger and better respected.
