I didn’t write this. It is in today’s Spectrum
Mandela better than our president
I recently watched a movie called "Invictus" starring Morgan Freeman as President Nelson Mandela. I also watched the opening of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
I watched the editorials on the life President Nelson Mandela and immediately saw the difference this president was compared to our President Obama. President Mandela loves his country, went to prison for 27 years for his country. He is compassionate, honest and his first thoughts have always been for the betterment of his country and his people. What a difference.
Obama loves himself. He is not compassionate or honest. He blames everyone else for things he can’t resolve. He instructs his Democratic cronies to write bills he doesn’t even read and forces them through Congress against the will of the people. Nelson Mandela received a Noble Peace Prize, which he deserved because he changed his country and removed apartheid for the Republic of South Africa forever. Obama receive the same prize for political reasons only. What a waste.
Al misses that Mandela’s ANC was also a terrorist organization that committed many atrocities. But to Mandela’s credit, once he got power, he handled it quite well.
