obama visited san francisco today.
a block away from my place, his face was on the back of a milk carton pasted on a billboard, a street artist’s call to action.
despite what you may think of this man and his work as president, it is easy to forget that he inherited a crippled nation on the verge of collapse from a moron, a war criminal at best, the worst leader the u.s. has ever been subjected to.
to unravel eight years of pillage and plunder is an almost impossible task.
that he is even willing to try to lead a country paralyzed by debt, greed, fear, war, corruption, opposing worldviews and corporate interest is admirable.
he gives hope in a situation where there is little to none.
