Interview on Al Arabiya

Interview on Al Arabiya

Tuesday, January 27th 9:25pm Dear Diary, Today I reached out to the Arab world through an interview on Al Arabiya, in trying to carry out the plans made in my Inauguration speech to reach out with an extended hand. I really wanted to show that portion of the world that American cares about Muslims and Muslim lives. Since George Bush did absolutely nothing to reach out to this area of the world, I’m demonstrating my willingness to engage in diplomacy within the first week after my inauguration. I just to emphasize my willingness to talk, and more importantly, listen, since I’m sure that hasn’t been happening at all over the past eight years. I've since learned that this interview was very well received through the Arab world, and especially in Pakistan, which is important if we want to achieve diplomacy from their country, and support from their people. In other news, the House will vote on my stimulus package tomorrow. I’m concerned that it won’t go through, especially since I heard that the Republicans were told by the GOP leader to oppose the stimulus before even reading it. Regardless, I’m still trying to maintain faith that they will make the right choice, the choice that acts in the best interest of the country, not their political agendas. Yours, Barack
