2013: VC’s Most Memorable Moments

by VC

To be honest, TODobots, reflecting on meaningful 2013 moments in the Age of Obama takes me right back to the 2009 Inauguration which I watched on TV.  Personally, I go backwards first because for me almost all momentous 2013 happenings are irrevocably intertwined with the ones started back then.

Remember this part of Pres O’s 2009 address?

“To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society’s ills on the West – know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”

I wasn’t at all surprised President Obama did just that, on December 10, 2013.

(1) ••►President  Barack H. Obama = A Man of his Word

He also said then ….

“…. as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

In seeking a new way forward, President Obama had a 15 minute conversation with Iranian President Rouhani

September 27, 2013:

(2) ••►President Barack H. Obama = A Man of Vision and of Action

Most everyone here would agree that PBO’s choice of Joe Biden as a presidential partner was, and is, a smart one. VP Joe has worked closely with Pres. O from the beginning …..

“Now, as the 47th Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden has continued his leadership on important issues facing the nation.  The Vice President was tasked with implementing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, helping to rebuild our economy and lay the foundation for a sustainable economic future.   …

In addition, Vice President Biden has supported the Administration’s effort to re-establish leadership in the Asia Pacific, traveling to China, Japan, and Mongolia in August 2011 and completing an exchange of visits with China’s then-Vice President in February 2012, that country’s current leader.  He has represented our country in every region of the world…….  ”

…and in 2013 a memorable event for me was VP Biden’s December 2013 6-day trip to Asia.
