I'll concur with this statement. However, since you find that disturbing, I think you should also join the cause to stop the mudslinging.
If it is not okay to say benevolent things about Obama yet, then you should certainly agree that is not okay to slander his name before he has had a
chance to institute any policy.
Also, I think the whole "eloquence" thing was fair. That is allowable, he is very eloquent.
I agree he is a very eloquent individual.
I also agree that people should stop the mudslinging. I do however think people should openly express their disdain if it is based on some sort of
factual evidence, news article, or personal experience.
Example 1. "Obama is evil because i said so." - That is a ridiculous statement and i think should not be said as there is no foundation.
Example 2. "It scares me a little all this talk of youth corps... ...read this news snippet" - That is justified in my opinion.
My personal opinion is as follows;
I have no idea what he is going to do but i do find some of the things i have read quite discouraging. I am terrified that people are addressing him
as "savior," "world president," "The best leader we have known," and many others. It was all propaganda and this election (as the others i have
seen) was the best reality show i have ever watched. There are people behind the curtain who own the media and everything else who simply run the
That aside i do believe that this election shows that the American people are growing up and are not the same they were 10 years ago.
I don't hate Obama, I hate the fact that the same people who were "anti-establishment" a week ago now believe that everything is going to be ok
based on one hell of an advertising campaign.
I hope i am wrong, and hope that everything is going to be ok, but my personal logic points to, "bussiness as usual," once all is said and done.
