I was told yesterday that a friend was in the fabric store and saw they had Obama fabric. Well I never knew the fabric companies made presidential fabrics. What a neat idea for a quilt. So last night after my fellow quilters left I researched the internet to see what I could find. I was amazed. Apparently they don't make presidential fabric or at least I couldn't find any but Obama. WHAT's THAT ABOUT?
Out of all the amazing accomplishments our many presidents have made were none worthy of commemorating in fabric except one who has been in office less than 6 months and honestly has achieved nothing close to his predecessors so far. Washington was our 1st president as a nation, Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, Andrew Johnson while not good was our first impeached president, Lincoln ended slavery, Wilson was the first to ever speak to the nation over the radio, Roosevelt was an amazing example of our military. These are just a small few off the top of my head.The list goes on and on yet the only fabric I found was Obama. Politics aside - party affiliation aside - you have to ask why and no matter who you are the answer is just sad. As a nation we choose to make heroes where they don't exist. Here's a simple man that ran for president and won. I believe 43 have come before him that did the same thing. Many of those 43 made amazing contributions to our country and the fabric companies choose to finally print a line of the one that referred to Americans as arrogant and so far accomplished little more than being elected. I'LL DEFINITELY WATCH WHAT MANUFACTURERS I BUY NOW.
