PLEASE, THINK ABOUT IT……I CHALLENGE YOU TO GIVE ME ANY GOOD REASONS……NOT JUST HOPES, EXPECTAIONS, ETC.

I am not AGAINST Obama. I am not FOR Clinton….but what I am AGAINST is the obvious stupidity of too many people I know who are being sucked into the gala bell-ringing, flag-waving image hype for a person who sure is attractive, and pleasing to the eyes and ears,…BUT WITHOUT A MODICUM OF PROVEN SUBSTANCE, WHICH WARRANTS A FREE PASS INTO THE WHITE HOUSE.

Vance Packard said it is his book, Hidden Persuaders; The American public, more than any other population group in the world, gets sucked in and taken over by advertising image instead of substance.

Do you watch the movie advertising which preceeds the coming of new releases? All those movies which are advertised steadily for a few weeks prior to coming out inevitably finish in attendance; #1, #2, #3 when they DO come out.

BUT NONE OF THEM EVER WIN THE SUBSTANTATIVE REWARD OF AN OSCAR. The reason they are so “popular” (for a very short time) is because they are hyped. In fact, inside movie people will tell you what when producers fear a movie is really no good, they will advertise the hell out of it, just for the few days of popularity they achieve, because of their advertising efforts.

OBAMA IS BEING HYPED….REALLY, REALLY BEING HYPED—even the media has joined the band wagon…and that’s ashame on the media….It violates their objectivity. We have Chris Matthews telling us Obama brought tears to his eyes when he speaks.

Sorry, Chris! All that means is that he is a good speaker, nothing more. Not presidential timber.

Obama’s plan was fantastic, absolutely incredible. In effect, it uses all the hot button catch words like: “HOPE”, “CHANGE”, “REFORM”, “OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW”. etc. etc. The usual “BS”.

None of us parents would allow our kids to, let’s say start a career because he or she “Hopes” to succeed; “Expects Success”, “Wants to be different”. Any good parent would demand that the offspring has the DOCUMENTED TALENT TO SUCCEED; NOT JUST HOPE THAT HE OR SHE CAN DO THE WORK REQUIRED.

Recently a number high-profile, influential pollitically experienced politicians come out to suddenly support Obama. They were asked a simple, logical, practical question like this; “Name me any thing Obama has actually accomplished in his his short political career, that brings you to support him for President of the United States? None of them….NONE of them could name one…..What’s Up With That”.

No, my friends…..stop being conned by the advertising hypes…..accept this long time proven axiom….”Before you expect me to believe in what you say you are GOING to do, show me something that you have ACTUALLY DONE”

You, the Public, the Voter, are merely emotionally reacting to the new campaign of a glittering generality word game, “Hope”, “Change”, “Reform” without knowing a damn thing about his ability (or lack of same) to what actually makes those words meaningful.

A political campaign is nothing more than a two year commercial for a product (the candidate). You are so “into” the plastic Obama image rage, that you have formed a movement, and the really disgusting political leaders are following your movement.

They are joining you with endorsements, not because they believe in Obama,…but, BECASUE THEY FEAR YOUR REACTION IF THEY DON’T FOLLOW YOU. These political “hoes” don’t know any more about Obama’s ability (or lack of same) than YOU do—but they don’t want the popular parade to go bye without joining in. THIS IS REALLY SAD.

I don’t care whom you vote for…but for crying out loud, VOTE FOR THE PERSON WHO ACTUALLY HAS ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING, AND SOME ONE WHO MAY HAVE SUBSTANCE, EVEN IF HE OR SHE ISN’T A CHARMER.

Give me an ugly, even arrogant, cold, stern, graceless SMART PERSON, WHO KNOWS WHAT HE OR SHE IS ACTUALLY DOING…AND CAN PROVE IT WITH A PAST FILLED WITH ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

What can I tell you….it is what it is.

    Your point is well taken. What has a one term Senator accomplished? Well the one accomplishment that is usually touted his Obama’s ethic reform bill. However, how one runs a campaign in the primary is a litmus test as to how they will govern and Obama has run a ruthlessly effecient campaign.

    An interesting side note. Carl Rove advised his right wing cohorts to back off using Obama’s middle name. He said another way has to be found to come at him as Obama’s opponents have sorely underestimated him. I think you do too.

    U. S. infants give up pablum for hype in infancy…..couple this with the average 100 I.Q. , and a sixth grade level written newspaper and WTF do you expect??

    I feel the same why about the Obama deal as I do about Mike Protak….let them have their run, let’s see what they can do (without undermining their efforts) and perhaps one day, after their tenure, our ‘dream’ will come: Candidates judged on the basis of their character, rather than skin tone.
