Obama and Chavez, Up In a Tree, K..i...s...s...i...n...g...or Not ?
The only donation I've ever made for a political campaign, I made for Hilay's primary run. Ten bucks - not much, I suppose. I did so because I felt I understood her and felt she had the capability in herself and her team to do a good job and to do so with the highest percentage of honesty of the candidates from either of the two major parties.
Now I still feel that she was the right candidate; I'm wondering more and more what Obama's goals are. Does he know, I wonder to myself. Maybe he doesn't even have clear goals himself. Certainly I haven't been able to figure them out. He seems to pride himself on being able to have everyone like him. But what does he want to do with everyone's confidence? Share the gospel of Jesus Christ his savior? Turn lead into gold? Get Hondurans to love each other and stop killing each other and lay aside their corrupt culture? Good luck!
I don't know the answer to the question whether the President is an unimportant figurehead, or an important decisionmaker and executive to carry out the laws of the congress. I don't know what Obama really wants either. This is why I supported his opponent in the primary.
I have a feeling that in three years and in seven years I am going to be saying the same thing: what is his goal to do with all the popularity he creates by his politically correct speech and smiles? When I read Obama's 1983 article from his time as a college student I wonder the same thing.
I am starting to wonder whether we will also be asking that question in eleven years also.
