* Schaeffer: Obama’s portrait will be placed next to that of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt

Frank Scaheffer (a former life long Republican) writes on the Huffington post (thanks to ILENE for the link)  

  • Obama is one of the most intelligent presidential aspirants to ever step forward in American history.
  • The likes of his intellectual capabilities have not been surpassed in public life since the Founding Fathers put pen to paper.
  • His personal character is also solid gold. Take heart, America: we have the leader for our times.
  • Obama brings a healing and uplifting spiritual quality to our politics at the very time when our worst enemy is fear. 
  • For eight years we’ve been ruled by a stunted fear-filled mediocrity of a little liar who has expanded his power on the basis of creating fear in others. Fearless Obama is the cure. He speaks a litany of hope rather than a litany of terror.
  • Obama brings a moral clarity to his leadership reserved for those who have had to work for everything they’ve gotten and had to do twice as well as the person standing next to them because of the color of their skin.  
  • Obama radiates the calm inner peace of the spirit of forgiveness.
  • A hundred years from now Obama’s portrait will be placed next to that of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt.
