This article is about America's Cinderella Story Mentality, which the author explains by telling us that there is no Cinderella Story in politics; it's just an illusion and a fairytale that doesn't exist in politics any more than instant gratification does. It also points out how unreasonable it is to support someone for only 18 months because of how some voters looked at Obama as some kind of magician, or a Moses character.

America your Cinderella mentality has made you delusional; there is no prince charming that is going to take the American people to the ball and instantly give them back what the Republican Party squandered away from them. There may not be any prince charming but there are still those three wicked step-sisters; the first is named the religious right, who swear that they are Christians, but don't know how to love other people different than they are, then there's the Republican Party that have already brought America to its lowest point in decades, and the third is a loud delusional woman created by the Republican Party designed to distract America from its flaws of arrogance and lack of common sense. This mouth-piece was designed to keep America from focusing on the real issues at hand, while at the same time making her a millionaire by buying her book; I saved my money.

America wake up so you can group up. I'm tired of watching so-called intelligent people fall into the realm of what I call stupid is as stupid does; the stupid syndrome. Get in bed with stupid people and you wake wondering what did you allow yourself to do? When you do things like this in politics, you fit into what I call falling right into the stupid syndrome or Cinderella story mentality;after that you find yourself criticizing our President instead of supporting him.

What really saddened me today was when a Black woman said that she was tired of coming to the defense of President Obama; imagine that, she was tired. This President has been working tirelessly for the American People as if we were his family and she has the audacity to say that she's the one that's tired. She said that,".. "I'm exhausted for defending you, defending your administration,"." defending the man for change that she voted for."

Frankly I am disappointed in this Black woman for saying what she said, because with statements like that she really couldn't have been a staunch supporter of President Obama or an advocate for truth; perhaps she is a plant of the Republican Party, after all politics is dirty.

What she and other Americans, Black, White, Chinese, Hispanic or others must understand that this is not a Cinderella Story; this is not make believe; there is no genie, fairy godmother or Houdini, who is going to instantly clear up this debacle left by the Republican Party. Those of you who thought of President Obama as a magician are delusional; he told us from day one that he needed all of our help. Moses had help from God; Obama not only needs God to help him, but he needs our continued support.

When you're digging out of a grave sometimes some dirt will fall in as you begin digging out; the Obama administration doesn't need the Republican Party's interference; pushing more dirt into this grave will only keep our country buried longer. Give our President your support by continuing to support the Democratic Party; let's bring America together by pulling the Democratic Party closer and supporting our Commander and Chief; he and the Democratic Party are still the best answer for a country that is still digging out from the mire of the Bush Administration.

America must never forget where the Republican Party took us in the 8 years preceding President Obama's election in 2008. Though we are still in one war, the bloody Iraq War, which the Bush Administration got us into by their illusion of truth, is for the most part over. You see illusions of truth or blatant lies, which said that the Iraq government had weapons of mass destruction killed over 4,000 men and women of our Armed Forces and wounded over 31 thousand; this lie which was perpetuated as truth proved extremely costly. We must not forget all that the Republican Party has done against the middle class and poor people. War kills, maims and deprives people; the Iraq War deprived the America people while our government spent over 1 trillion dollars for what I call a death sentence. <> America it's time to grow up; the pace of what you want to happen may not be what you want, but this is reality; delusional politics never work. What America needs to understand and come to grips with is that you don't give up on a good thing; we have a good President and a great man, so continue supporting President Obama, who continues to be honest and the most hard working president for all Americans.<>
