Obama: “I screwed up”

I picked up the newspapers that morning and the headline that caught my attention was Obama: “I screwed up”. On reading this, I thought there was a misprint while naming the president of US and quiet literally assumed it should have been Clinton: “bla bla bla” ;-)
To clear my doubt, I immediately peeped into another national newspaper and quite surprisingly read the same thing. Must say, here is the president, ‘The Obama’, who truly represents the people of the world because he speaks and does what the common people of the world would normally do.
We were waiting for this change for a long time and I believe it has finally arrived. A person at the most powerful position in the world, shows how straightforward and open minded he actually is and simply speaks his mind.
He does not adjust, compromise with his behavior, attitude, ethics and principles to mimic the flashy and the oh-so-polished lifestyle of the President of the United States. This is because, Obama has traveled and has lived in different countries (incl. the third world countries) in the world and has experienced different cultures in his childhood days. Because of his very humble upbringing, he can understand and get into the skin of the common man. He says, that I am not here to make the rich richer but here to see that all Americans are employed and live a comfortable and healthy life in the United States.
India and every country truly needs a leader like Obama. Or why not appoint Obama as the global CEO?
Today Pakistan has agreed and admitted that the terrorists, who attacked and devastated Mumbai, were their state actors who operated in the hideout in Pakistan to plan this attack. It’s been 2.5 months now since Mumbai was attacked and until now Pakistan was in complete denial of it. But with pressurization from the Obama administration (US withheld $50 million dollars as aid to Pakistan, demanding that Pakistan be more accountable towards the terror probe), Pakistan couldn’t remain in denial for long. They have now promised us that they would take concrete steps in helping the world eradicate terrorism.
Critics say that Obama only speaks but does not act. My answer to the critics is that yes Obama is indeed a fantastic orator and does what he suppose to do as the President of the US and uses his power wisely keeping the welfare of the people of his country on the top of his mind.
Obama you truly rock!
