Obama’s America? Really, Since When?

I saw something last night that bothered me.  CNN or MSNBC is doing a special on ‘Obama’s America’.  Does this bother anyone else?  Since when does the country belong to the president?  I know it’s just a turn of phrase, at least I hope it is from them, but a turn of phrase like this seems very important.  Perhaps they should have chosen ‘Obama’s Year’, or ‘Obama’s Presidency’.  You know, I looked it up to see which network was running it and found it’s a bit more prevalent than I thought.  Books, news articles, shows, radio broadcasts, etc.  All over the internet the phrase ‘Obama’s America’!  This is not a country of one man, this is not a monarchy.  This is OUR America, not his.

I urge everyone that reads this, pass it on as well, stop using this phrase if ever you have.  It may just seem like an innocent turn of phrase but those phrases have a way of weaseling their way into our psyche over time.  It shouldn’t be used for any president, ever, lest we forget our place in the course of this country.  We don’t row this boat, the politicians do.

I know, short rant, but it was just something I had to get off my chest.
