DrJays.com Debate: Will we keep our promises?

There are a lot of talks and speculations right now on the promises Barack Obama has made to the nation. As seen on the news today, he is already rolling up his sleeves and getting down to business.

We’re interested to see if the American people will really keep the fire going, the passion that was expressed the night that Obama was elected as President. The election frenzy has passed, and many claim that Obama has inspired them to make changes starting with their own lives – such as going back to school to earn that unfinished degree, being more eco friendly, or being more charitable – but will we really keep our word and help this man change the country?

  • TO ME HE SEEMS LIKE HE GON LIVE UP 2 HIS PROMISES SPECIALLY THE HEALTH CARE ISSUE I MEAN I GET MINES FROM THE MILITARY BUT STILL I KNOW PLENTY OF PEOPLE WITH OUT HEALTHCARE AND IT BURNS ME UP THE WAY SOME HOSPITALS TREAT EM. AND I THINK CORRECT ME IF I WRONG BUT I THINK HE SAID HE WAS GON TRY AND BUILD A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH CUBA WHICH IS EXCELLENT IN MY OPINION. PLUS EVERYBODY KNOW WHEN A DEMOCRAT GETS IN OFFICE THE EMPLOYMENT RATE SKYROCKETS SO AFTER OBAMA GETS SWORN IN GET THOSE APPLICATIONS OUT PEOPLE ITS GON BE MAD JOB OPENINGS ITS GON BE 2009 SOON AND IT SHOULDN’T BE NO REASON FOR ANYBODY NOT TO HAVE A JOB FROM THE COPORATE PPL TO THE GUYS TAKING YOUR ORDER A JOB IS A JOB SO LETS GET ONE!

    Honestly it depends on the people. People now have a tendency to free ride till the ride is over then move on or kick the person that just gave them the ride then wait and whine till someone else picks them up like a baby. People flip flop, bandwagon, whine for what they want etc you get the point.

    We talked about this in our world culture class. Basically the microscope is on us even more. So we nominated a person we’re proud of, so let’s make him proud. And not just continue what we’re doing now.

    Now’s not the time to take it easy. There will be more people hating on us so let’s prove them wrong and let’s prove obama right. There will be people being stupid and saying it doesn’t matter cause our president is black. People might stay laying on their ass and think life will bow to their feet because our president is black. Someone smack these niggas and bring them back to reality. There will people that keep talking the talk but can’t or won’t walk.

    Or this could be the era where people under promise and over deliver instead of the consistancy of vice versa in the past. We’ll wait and see… errr you’ll wait and see cause I’m doing and only care bout me and help those helping me.

    well umm i saw him said it on television so if thats his words and he really mean it so imma belirve him for that….but me and us american people black white latino ppl we all have to work together with this man cause our life is on the line so take a full advantage please im still looking for a better job so im very patient on it.

  • Lol good questio

    funny to me he hired the guy who caused the nation’s debt to be like his chief of staff

    then all those minorities in Indianapolis didn’t get paid

    I didn’t vote for Obama or McCain…… i hope he promotes change but i did not feel the ‘answers’ he was giving and feel he’s just a good speaker.. a hustler…… BUT the people have to make change happen.. its not the presdient

    gotta demand things frmt hese businesses and do boycotts and all that to get what u want in life.. true story…. no man sitting on top will care about the people at the bottom… doubt he can ever see you

    Hip Hop you sound very negative but you have that right tho We all have to come together white Black rich or poor it took many years for this country to get like this too many have swet it under the rug and guess what it has come from under the rug!!! Now we have a man in there that is willing to clean it up we have to help tho no man can do this on his own, time to tighten up our belts and get in and get dirty!!! So Hip Hop are you willing to get dirty or are you staying clean and talking on the sidelines???

  • Kwaping says:

    I truly believe that Obama’s election changed the world, instantly and forever. That event gave hope to the hopeless, and faith to the faithless. I can say that, because I was one of them! The positive changes are already starting to ripple around the world, and he hasn’t even taken office yet. France declared it’s going to start waging a war on its own racism (which is rampant). Imagine what can happen when he actually takes office? lol
