I remember my daddy telling when the Rev Jesse Jackson was a candidate Democratic presidential nomination in 1984, that neither one of us

would live to see a black man in the White House.

I remind my daddy of that conversation every time I see President Barack Obama on television.

I would like for you to join me in saying a very loud happy birthday to our President Barack Obama.

Today is the Presidents 53rd birthday. Wish the President a happy birthday in the comments box below.
