On the night of November 4, 2008, the world witnessed the election of the first black man, Barack Obama to become President of the United States of America. Given the history of racial conflict in America and the fact that black people still struggle to achieve equality with white Americans, Barack Obama's election was not only historic but also extraordinary. It was extraordinary because his election to become president would transcend a history of negative racial influence and bias. The day after Barack Obama was elected president, the global media paid tribute to his historic accomplishment. This accomplishment was worthy of global recognition because it signaled a change that most people did not think was possible. Every aspect of Barack Obama's personal background under normal circumstances would have eliminated him as a presidential contender. For Barack Obama to be elected president, certain pre-conditions had to occur. These pre-conditions are discussed in this book. This book, Whom God Has Blessed Let No Man Curse, describes Barack Obama's destiny to become president of the USA. The book outlines the journey of his destiny to the White House including the preconditions that got him elected in 2008 and again in 2012. The premise of the book is that Barack Obama is a blessed man - not necessarily in the context used in the Christian religion - and was destined to be president. For these reasons his detractors, despite their ongoing assault on the president, have not and will not be successful in bringing him down. Whom God Has Blessed Let No Man Curse is not only the story about Barack Obama's election as president; it is also about his extraordinary first term as president. No president before him has experienced the blatant disrespect and aversion from political opponents or detractors like he has. Despite all this, he was able to perform his presidential duties with reasonable success. Like the great men and women from the time of antiquity who inspired and taught the human race lessons about life, it is hoped that President Obama's accomplishment and exemplary leadership will do the same. It is also hoped that this book will help people who read it appreciate the president's accomplishments and his effort to make America and the world a better place.
