I am a Little Confused

Posted by Business in Ghana on September 21, 2008

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.” Growing up in Alaska eating mooseburgers and going aerial shooting for wolves in the winter; a quintessential American story. If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. Name your kids Willow , Trig and Track, you’re a maverick. Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable. Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.

    This is unbelievably put together. America politics is a joke. They never want the right person to lead the country. Obama should reiterate the article everytime he is about to embark on any speech. Powerful and Truthful.

    I guess one does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure this nonsense out. This is a clear indication America got issues and only Barack can fix those issues.

    First, how is going to Havard related to becoming a good leader? George Bush went to Yale and Havard. Secondly,there is no record of community organizing by Barack in Chicago. This is another manufactured tale to sell Barack. Even allowing Barack that Barack had stints with community organizing, what does that have to do with possessing adequate experience to run an imperial country? We can go back to the primaries where the Barack Camp rightly criticized the foreign policy experience of Hillary Clinton as nothing but foreign travels of a first lady; the travels were at best ceremonial. Comparably, Obama experience is at the same level as Palin even though Palin had not been that exposed in that sense she is a governor of Alaska whereas Obama is the only black Senator in Congress. This whole tug of war on the question of experience is irrelevant. Neither George nor Bill Clinton had any foreign policy experience. George Bush for one had quite poor communication abilities. Whereas Palin’s foreign policy experience is almost blank, one can argue her role as governor of a State adds a dimension to her CV that none of the other candidates have — Mcain, Obama, Biden. Putting aside these trivialities, one has to understand that the foreign policy experiential demands placed on these candidates are exaggerated and somewhat irrelevant. Every president of the United States has adequate advisory and technical support behind the scenes who direct foreign and even domestic policies. As a matter of fact, the presidents only rehearse the mantra of U.S foreign policy trajectory. Often, these are shrouded in nomenclature of democracy, human rights, free markets — they are in actuality code words for U.S global hegemony. Neither Barack Obama nor Mcain is going to do anything different. Yes, the rhetoric is different but the ends are the same. It is clear the U.S political elites have been able to delude the masses that this election is about change. Obama is not about change and neither is Mcain. Anybody who has studied Obama’s politics from Illinois to the national stage can confidently conclude he is another corporate politician who is joined to the hip with the rotten system in Washington. A track of his campaign funding will only expose the tip of the iceberg of this so called change agent. Obama has taken more money than any other politician from Wall Street — $10 million. Moreover, the fact the he has raised most money in the U.S presidential history should raise suspicions about who really is behind the guy. Well, we can get into mudslinging tirade about his opponent’s moral standing. I think it will be dangerous for Obama’s supporters since the republican savages will pounce on his past use of drugs and associations with some considered in the mainstream as anti-american. The fact of the matter is both Barack Obama and John Mcain are full of shiit. Attempting to validate one over the other amounts to trying to split hairs. The political economy of the United States will not change with any of these establishment figures becoming president.
