Obama offers hope for American change

Nov

Barack Obama's path to the White House started in the New Year and has now resulted in his confirmed presidency and the dawn of a new America.

Replacing George W Bush from the world's top job is a mean feat and offers the world a chance to glimpse life in this newly sudden utopia generated hysterically by the American electorate and globally.

What is telling from this latest money spinning campaign, which involved Obama's employment of Facebook's founder Chris Hughes helping his cause, is that Obama means business.

My BBC Breakfast

When I woke up this morning, I'll admit that who won the presidency did not immediately spring to mind. It was more "shit, my fish is dead." Thankfully George wasn't actually dead, he just wasn't moving at the moment in time...

The right man for the job.

Nov

Barack Obama to me represents a massive step forward for the United States. He embodies their nations new ability to accept change and make up for the past. Essentially, America overwhelming voting for a Black president means that it is moving away from what it knows, the traditional candidates and choosing equality and something different.

Obama is the key factor in helping America overcome racism. I think he is exactly the man to unite the country and I respect him even more for deciding to pull troops out of Iraq.

Hope is a funny word.

It is undeniable that Barack Obama has
inspired many millions of people across the world. His acceptance
speech was, I think it is fair to say, one of the most remarkable
oratory performances the world has seen. The hope he has instilled in
people, not only Americans but people all over the planet, is
phenomenal.

I'm So Sad

Nov

I'm too disheartened to re-write the blog i just spent half an hour writing and accidently deleted so my view in short is that Obama's journey to Presidency is at risk of overshadowing his Presidency itself. I doubt it but this can often be the case regarding Woodrow Wilson. Ask me tomorrow if you would like me to elaborate but i am too upset to re write the 400 words i just deleted.

Nov

So Barack Obama is the new President Elect, has defeated the gloomy threat of aMcCain/Palin presidency and brought change not only to America, but, if I understand today's headlines of newspaper web pages correctly, to all of us.

Blears on Blogging

Nov

Without fanfare or comment I draw to your attention this piece by New Labour's favourite uber-Blairite, Hazel Blears. It is an edited version of a speech she will make to the Hansard Society. Ever wondered why journalists have such a long established tradition of resisting state regulation? Isn't Hazel marvellous?

Obama Breaks Down Barriers and Makes History

Nov
05

The election of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America is a truly momentous event. He has broken down racial barriers and proved that race is no hinderance to seeking high office. The most powerful man in the world is an African-American. This would have seemed unthinkable to people growing up in the Civil Rights era. Many thought that they would never see this day come.
