In a review of OBAMA's" Audacious Hope" Kelly H Meck has this concluding words
"If people in both parties don’t stay interested, informed, and positive – not panicked or jaded – about their government, a republican government becomes the tool of moneyed, special interests and fear mongers. Obama symbolizes hope for a different kind of politics – one that would serve the republic well.
http://www.dartmouth.edu/~thepress/read.php...
The problem is that hope is not audacious at all. Audacious would be doing something now, audacious would be taking a personal political risk because the country needs it, audacious would be saying something unconventional because the conventional is killing us. Audacity is not turning one's back on present needs and praying that the future will straighten it all out. One of the best kept secrets in America today is the extent to which hope and faith are being used as seedy substitutes for action and reason. Too often, hope is a form of postponement and faith a substitute for action or facing the truth.
The opposite of hope is not despair, but action.....Sam Smith.
So? When ya runn'n for President? HMMMM?

So he's following Bush's war policy (Ayers has even trashed Obama for it). Hasn't pulled out of Iraq. Done nothing for homosexual rights...most notably Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Maintained the Patriot Act. Won't release torture photos. Won't prosecute torture. There will not be a public option.

Left wing radical, for sure.

I am a die hard political observer and not a hen-pecked impotent journlist who are embedded to divert the real poverty we all see around us.

Some are enjoying their life without any basic christian ethics like BUSH for example.
Obama's nationality and religion is more vital for these embedded journalists who had failed to expose the election manipulation in USA besides in iraq and Afganistan ..
Am i vommiting alanguage of your country?
if yes i feel extremely sorry and i beg your pardon.
have a life till death

$1,2 billion,$1,3 billion,$1,..what? ow sorry. didnt notice you there.

No, things are fine here at USA INC actually. Our boy is doing just what he's supposed to do, pretty much like the clowns before him that we owned as well..

euh. timeline. Yeah. That was a little clumsy, but our stocks haven't really suffered all that much and our buddies at the networks are ironing that one flat as we speak, so it looks like straight sailing for the next couple of years.

Yeah, I know! Aint it great?! these fools are still bickering amongst eachother over who the worst clown really is! Can you believe it? Nah. dont worry. we still have them believing its the patriotic thing to do to send your offspring off to be blown to bits. All we need to do is keep inventing the next threat and they'll just keep supplying the gunfodder. unbelievable uh?

Well, Got some more counting to do so tadah to you now..

I don't mind the citizens of USA showi8ng their flags and projecting a new leader who had promised with flowery language to change the climate of the global political spectrum.
I do mind about those innocent US citizens who still DREAM a pious, congenial, human life which is evaporating like the snow in Himalaya..

War had more havoc to the environment than any other factor.

USA under Obama should try to practice what he had preached during his long election campaign.
Hope I have and the real change is not to be seen so far.
Sorry for my critical observations.
Thanks
