Role Model Review
For this assignment I have chosen a leader that is in charge of everywhereseeing the over 300,000,000 people of the joined States of America, (The World Fact Book, July 2010) the 44th President of The United States of America, Barack Obama. The primary duty of the electric chair of the United States is to make sure that entirely United States laws are carried out and that the federal government is run effectively. Although the president may not introduce new legislation he does stick to the awe almost power to veto all bills that are approved by the legislature. In addition, the president has the weighty bureau of commander in foreland of the armed forces.As the nations chief executive, the president oversees irrelevant policy, making treaties with foreign nations and appointing ambassadors to other nations and to the United Nations. He also appoints members of the Cabinet, as well as Supreme Court justices and federal judges. As you can tell the line of work of the president of The United States is full of responsibilities and is a job that should not be taken lightly.When president Barack Obama was elected to office in 2008 it was an election of heroical proportions. That year there was not only the first African American running for president, still also the first female. After the primary elections it was muster out that the race for the 44th president was going to be between republican candidate John McCain and Barack Obama.President Barack Hussein Obama II has a account that American dreams are made of. He claims to have been raised with determine from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family, troublesome work and education as the means of getting ahead, and the conviction that a life so blessed should be lived in service to others.He was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961. His father was from Kenya and his take was from Kansas. He was raised with the avail from his grandparents. His grandfather served in Pattons army and his granny was a secretary at a bank. Barack worked his way through college with the help of scholarships and student loans. (whitehouse.gov)President Obama has claimed to be a Christian, but there has been umpteen who would question this because of his Muslim roots. President Obama has been quoted as saying that he has accompanied the same Christian church for the past 20 years. (The associated Press) This is after he was accused of being an Islamic terrorist because his father as well as his step-father were both Muslim. President Obama and his family were in fact members of The Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago until he had a dis totalment with his pastor. (The associated Press) on that point are things that President Obama has endorsed throughout his campaign and throughout his presidency that I do not cope with with. I do not agree with his issues on abortion, rase though he did stop federal living of it. I am also not a fan of his health care reform. I believe that there are other ship canal than what he is proposing to make sure that the American people have low-cost health care and health care coverageAs with any(prenominal) leader there will always be things that everyone dislikes and things that only some people like. This is after all a free country that is compulsive by freewill and democracy. Personally I can see wherefore people would hold president Obama to the standards of a role model and even a hero. His story is truly amazing and is an example of the American dream.I however would not say that he is a perfect soulfulness to be a role model. As I mentioned before I do not agree with a lot of his policies or that he has a Muslim background. I also do not agree with the thought of a public official being thought of as a role model for children when he openly discusses his battle with nicotine. at that place are really none of us that are perfect, but as Christians we are to strive to be Christ like.Throughout the past few er years I have watched as president Obama has delivered public addresses and wondered if he were bout religion and faith into the same thing. The only way that he can talk about religion is to talk about his faith, but never specifically mentioning what he has faith in therefore turning faith into an irrelevant flourish of sentimentality that one can pick to wrap around social justice or dispose of completely. I feel that this is bringing religion down to the lowest common denominator. I cannot look at a man as a role model that tries to make Christianity politically correct.
