What Change Will Barack Obama Bring?

Anonymous 2 11:46 PM
For me as a South African, the relevance of the American poll is minimal. But as always, the fight for the helm of the "free world" is always an interesting bout.

But I just wanted to get something off my chest.

1.Barack Obama will become the next president of the USA.
Mark my words. While every other media outlet asks the question, I make the outright prediction. From what have I drawn my conclusion? His smile. I am telling you, people vote for a face. A person they can trust. Barack's smile has that quality in abundance. McCain doesn't even have a smile.
2.A major controversy will arise during his term of Presidency.
Come on. Someone somewhere is already digging in the dirt of this guy's history. We've already seen it with Sarah Palin's attack on his support from a "domestic terrorist".
I know it is terrible to say so, and speak such words into being, but you almost get that feeling "it's only a matter of time". It is the unfortunate reality that Western society today only builds heroes up just so they can tear them down again.
"You either die a hero. Or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Credit to Christopher Nolan for that quote. It comes from Aaron Eckhart in Batman: The Dark Knight.

So remember... You heard it first right here.
Let me know your thoughts and feelings. Post a comment, and let's get talking!


Hi James,

People elected President Clinton into office TWICE because of his smile and "good looks." They totally over looked his complete lack of character and integrity because they thought he was handsome.

So, given the superficiality of the American people, I would not be surprised if he does win the election.

There is plenty of controversy on Barack Obama on the surface...there is really no need to dig deep. The media here is so in love with him that they've not reported it or have outrightly refuted it.

Lots of food for thught here...I look forward to reading more of your blog :)

Thanks for the comment Deneen,

I think the most accurate reason for Barack Obama being the overwhelming victor in this season's Presidential race, would be America's desperate need for a saviour. America is rock bottom. And so too is the confidence of the people. And hence I believe the people are looking for a saviour. Much the same way Israel cried out to God for a King in the Old Testament.

Difference is, Barack is an ordinary man. And his powers are limited. Barack was the closest thing the media could find to a saviour. And thus, they worshipped this man.

I am so thankful I know the identity of the True Saviour.

The next 4 years are going to be intriguing to say the least.

But I really want to do this...
