Political Woodstock (…ctd)

Wow. What a ceremony. It really looked quite huge, graceful and important.
Obama gave a relevant, powerful speech, and didn’t focus too much on emotion as much as he focused on the future course of action and the personal responsibility everyone should assume. Good job !

but I ask : why was the christian faith promoted so much? I realize the traditional aspect of this, but I also know that not all presidents decide to go this way and some are just affirmed, rather than sworn in. This was, to me, the only problem with the whole inauguration. Kudos to Obama though for including “non-believers” in his speech.

Is it just me or is the Obama inauguration looking more and more like a huge rock concert? : Glamour, major artists, concerts, performances, huge anticipation, huge crowds, sold-out tickets, hope, love, peace, optimism fun, a mega star (obama), music, singing, dancing, worlwide telecasting, blogging,  etc… etc…

For my part, I can only see the positive side of this. A jolt of enthusiasm and fraternity is all the american people – and the world- need and deserve in these tough times.

I’ll be definetly watching that speech at noon… It’s going to be quite the speech.



Change has come, finally.

plain and simple : congratulation to Mr. Obama, and thank you for making the whole world feel hopeful -and dare I say happy- at the same time, at the same instant, and hopefully for a long time to come.

Regarding the future, we have tomorrow to talk about it.
For now, we go to sleep with a better, more rested mind than we had before dinner tonight.



Let the issues be the issue !

Country First

I think it’s cheap.
I think it’s borderline immoral.
I think it’s pure manipulation

but I also think it’s legitimate, genius, effective, powerful, and dangerous.

***

COUNTRY FIRST, the new campaing slogan/direction by the republican party, is now being over-highlighted following the Gustav disaster, in a move that may just win them the election. and it’s rooted in pure evil : profiting from a natural disaster and people’s distress to strengthen the campaign’s appeal. What a disgustingly good idea !

The concept itself is so smart and so layered, that many democrats will be lured to it. Basically, they’re inviting the country to forget about parties, and unite (“put on our American hats”). And it seems that that’s exactly what the country is waiting to hear.  And if there’s anything the republicans are good at, is giving us a false sense of security, hiding behind the idea of “national unity”, like it’s going to solve anything other than appease the egos, and give the angry something to chew on.

Also, this hurricane is doing them so much good it’s not even funny : Bush’s speech is cancelled (mccain must be on cloud 9), the party’s “human” image is boosted, they got some pity for cancelling day 1 of the convention, they got this new, exciting campaign tagline AND, most importantly, the government is actually handling Gustav very well so they’re scoring points there.

The republican campaign, as jon stewart smartly put it, is really trying to say : “Give us another chance, we won’t fuck up this time!“. Of course you won’t….

Dems, get your act on!
