Obamanation. This is my new term for Barack Obama. What’s funny, is that most of his followers would think this sounds flashy and consider themselves as part of the “Obama Nation”. In fact, abomination is defined by Mirriam-Webster as “something abominable (worthy of or causing disgust or hatred: detestable)”. I think this is an accurate way to describe a person who uses what ever expedient method he can to get what he wants. In the case of Barack Obama, he speaks of hope and change, but offers no way explanation of how he plans to achieve them. Instead, he relies on charisma and his delivery while delivering his talking points.
I don’t like to use the term flip-flop, because it was beaten into the ground in the 2004 presidential elections. However, BHO’s stances have ambiguous at best. After pledging to accept public financing, which would limit spending to $84 million, he reversed his decision on June 19th. Why? Through the end of April, his campaign had raised $266 million to the $93 million raised by John McCain. Apparently Obama’s new politics does not start with a level playing field when it comes to public financing.
We’ll see how different he is from other politicians soon, though. Alright, I was being sarcastic.
