Just watched the press conference, and as far as I can discern, Obama was simply sober and serious (with a little humour thrown in). Of course, he is
privy now to greater intelligence detail, and domestic socio-economic issues. He stated that he is well aware of how bad the situation is, and on this
issue, I believe he feels frustrated at not being able to implement his economic plans right away...he has to wait until January 20th, 2009. Remember,
he said he wanted to hit the economic problems 'head on', and this declares an eagerness, along with a belief (attending that eagerness) that he can
start 'fixing' things for the American people.
However, he will need the aid and co-operation of the American people to achieve the goals he has set for the American economic reform. He will have
to make implementations that try to balance short-term and long-term goals, so some decisions may not be popular. Bush has allowed the American fiscal
economy to run aground, along with other world leaders in their own respective economies; now and for the foreseeable future, will not be a time for
selfish partizanship or self-interest.
He already disagrees with the chaotic, self-agendized failed policies of Bush, who believes that emancipation from poverty should implement itself
from the tables of the rich and wealthy as scraps thrown over the head from the plate, and that those trapped in poverty should fight amongst
themselves for such scraps...a most abhorrent and pernicious ideology! Any economy built with its strength from the bottom up, rather than from the
top down, is the one that provides a more longer-lasting and stable social infrastructure. I believe you are going to see a lot of the Bush policies
over-turned, each one in accordance to the fixing of the state, in its appropriate time and measure.
Bush represented disenfranchisement, and a stealing of one's own self-empowering opportunities; Obama will return self-empowerment opportunities, and
bring one back to communal franchisement. Yet, let us not forget that there are many out there that do not accept communal co-operation, their mindset
is one of self-interest and seek only to 'fat' themselves by promoting the 'dog-eat-dog' world, and they will use every trick in the book to
persuade you that Obama's plans are wrong for America...they are not! There is no room at all for a 'f**k you, Jack, I'm alright!' attitude in a
country that needs co-operative endeavour to fulfil the repairs to its economy. Such self-interest is the bane and ruin of any society, as the last
eight years have shown.
Obama did good, and he will do good, but no doubt, they'll be plenty of argument and debate along the way.
