I understand the source of many people’s anger concerning Obama’s speech and his election in general. Obviously it is quite naive and close-minded to believe that Barack can change anything immediately, or in the near future. His speech was also quite contradictory, preaching individual freedom and the benifit of the collective at the same time. The fact is, as much as we may despise peoples’ blind following of Obama’s promises, we cannot change what people believe or how they think and respond to what Obama says.
I do commend Obama for his ability to bring such emotion and hope to his supporters, though.
And B.T.W., just because his middle name is ” Houssein,” does not mean that his is automatically a terrorist. Many people have the same middle name. One man just happened to give ” Houssein” a negative connotation.
