Well let's look at that. Does Obama know something I do not? I would say absolutely. But you have to look at that a little bit deeper than just the cheeky saying.
He is a Senator who supposedly has the intelligence and wherewithal to be President. He knows more about a lot of things than I do probably. But he based his entire campaign on "Change we can believe in."
So now after the campaign he is not changing anything. It is all re-tread Clintonistas. So does he know something we don't now? Did we elect a neophyte as President who miraculously figured it all out after the election was over?
I say no. I say we elected a man who is a politician first, and will say anything to get elected, who has the benefit of being black.
There you go with the "retread Clintonista" shit. Is the only way you get any actual ideas by parroting the talk show hosts? You can't be so stupid as to not realize that it is Obama, not them, who will set the course? I mean, think it through man, don't just make yourself a bucket to carry someone else's bullshit.
Obama is a truly remarkable individual. He excelled at Harvard, winning top honors and appointed to the editorship of the Harvard Law Review, an honor reserved for the best of the best. He was a full professor of Constitutional Law before he was thirty. He became wealthy by authoring two huge best selling books that dealt with what it means to be an American in our changing world and how we can all change things by being positve and positive acting, motivating millions of poor and disenfranchised people to release the power they had if they simply registered to vote, ending the far right wing stranglehold on this nation. His meteroic rise in politics was astounding, coming from nowhere to defeat the biggest, most organized Democratic political organization and then going on to defeat the Republican Media Megaphone Machine, and not in some squeaker, he kicked both their asses.
I am sure that for a Bush supporter that the idea of an extremely intelligent president backed by a party that doesn't act like a bunch of trained seals is a foreign and scary idea, but believe me, it actually leads to something knew: instead of being people being ruled
, we will now be represented
. Obama didn't say "anything" to get elected, he said the things that the majority of the people want to see happen in this country: regulation of the Dictatorship of Cash, an end to their fucking rotten illegal war, and some social democracy in this country in the form of national health care and rights for gays and women. The people, who by any poll, you can check, want these things, are about to actually get represented by their government, and tough shit to those who don't like it.
