There are very simple reasons why ignorant people love Obama.
1. He's perceived as intelligent.
2. He can speak English properly when using a teleprompter
3. He isn't George W Bush.
4. Or Dick Cheney.
5. Or Sarah Palin
6. Or a Republican.
7. He isn't a walking, talking embodiment of all that is fuckwitted America in general. (Which is slightly different to point 6. But not much.).....
8. He clearly is aware of the way that America has trashed its reputation abroad and has not tried to mend bridges or realized that the bridges do not need mending.
9. Hell, he is aware there even is an abroad.
10. He is aware that "science" is better than "going with your gut".
Their exercised. I hear Jetsetter can lift a truck with them!
Your eyeballs must hurt from all that rollin'.
The man has got four years, give him four years. It takes a long time to build a house, and only seconds to destroy it. And the previous administration did a hell of a lot of damage.^^
Obama talks the talk very well but he so far hasn't walked the walked in any real and tangible way, to be using an old cliche.
One of those four is already gone, and the international stage is just as it was when he took over.The man has got four years, give him four years.
Much as everyone seems to hate to admit, as far as the international stage is concerned, the Bush folks had a decent setup going, though it was a matter of waay too little too late but there's no way Obama can deviate from what they had set up nor any real reason he would want to. The last president to make the mistake of completely changing the game plan like that was...George W BushOne of those four is already gone, and the international stage is just as it was when he took over.
As long as it's the democrat team right? It's great to have an opinion, that is totally your right, but don't try to call damn near half of America half-wits because they also have an opinion. You obviously have your team, perhaps if you stepped down off your soap box for a little bit you'd find that we are JUST LIKE YOU.I'm not as cynical about politicians - they aren't all the same. However, the process where it is like sport, where you follow your "team" through thick and thin is astonishingly damaging to the political process. People should realise that they can change their vote - it isn't football with "us" and "them. It is democracy.
Except for one tiny, tiny factor. I can't vote in a US election. I don't have a side to pick.As long as it's the democrat team right?

The Republican Party is either populated by nutjobs, scary people, or scary nutjobs. Sarah Palin? Seriously? Does anyone really think the world is better off if she was in the Oval Office? I mean, three of the candidates for the Republican nomination don't even believe in evolution and these are the people who were trying to be in charge.
That, sir, is an insult to idiots everywhere! Not even they would want to be put into the same group as her!I won't dismiss all the republicans as morons, but I will dismiss Sara Palin as an idiot, and given McCain's age and health, I'd rather have Ted Kennedy (who's DEAD) as the President of the United States.
Heck, I'd take Cleetus, that yocal without teeth in the Simpsons before I'd consider let Sara Palin run a refugee camp in the Sudan.
