A little bit of politics

Don't drizzle your pessimism on Obama's grand parade

This is after all an historic moment so you'll forgive me for posting this. I know a few here think that Obama will turn out to be a spin merchant along the lines of Tony Blair (who in any case did one or two good things) but this article cautions against such cynicism. The peerless Alistair Cooke said about GWB that we should wait and see, despite unpromising signs. We certainly should with Obama, who I suspect will turn out to be a pretty good leader. We can but hope because we are short of pretty good leaders.

  • “Tony Blair (who in any case did one or two good things)”…oh yes like what exactly? Iraq? Afghanistan? David Kelly? Allowed Prudence the clown to pretend to be knowing what he was doing as chancellor? Cash for peerages? Take your New LIEbour spin and take a running jump off the nearest cliff.

    Obama is bought and paid for by big business like almost all of the US government. He will be unable to cope with the new reality of depression and peak oil as he is just more of the same corruption. He won’t bring change, change will come whether they like it or not.
