Watching a few segments of the election scene today, they were interviewing some potential voters and getting some feedback on what they saw, heard,
thought, etc. Time and time again, they praised Obama for what he had to say and what he can do for this nation. But none of them had a clue what he
said. None of them knew a damn thing about his platform, his views on any of the key issues, or anything about him for that matter.
It's a name, a face, and a personality.
Could the average voter openly state the difference between Obama and Hilary on illegal immigration? The economy? Foreign policy? Does it even
We hear "change", "change", "change".. but never any details. I love how vague he can speak and never get questioned. "We're going to fix
this nation, and bring about change is Washington!" And somehow this is good enough?
Does the enlightened American voter sleep well at night knowing that the next President may have been voted in for how he looked, or that he had
"rock star appeal", and not for what he said? I'm certainly not saying that he's not the best candidate for the job, but he more than most seem
to be getting praised for everything but what he actually has to say.
Is this a concern?
Listening to what specifics he does share, I do like what he has to say. I'm not sure that I'd vote for him, but I can't say that I wouldn't.
But I raise an eyebrow to those that are voting for him, but couldn't answer the slightest question to what he has to say.
Any thoughts on this?
