Do you honestly believe this is a statement about Obama supporters, and not a more general statement about the pitiful state of US citizen's awareness of our own system?
I can't deny that Obama had - and has - huge emotional appeal to many, which is not a good criteria for electing any official , let alone a president. But the hypnotically emotional approach worked because of who we are - who we ALL are, to one degree or another. Bush road exactly the same kind of wave as he convinced us to give up a number of our rights and freedoms post 9/11 (and no, before you ask, I'm not one who believes he or his puppet masters planned that in advance. I do believe, however, that they were happy to take advantage of it once it had occurred.)
I think there is still time to find out if Obama is a true leader, or merely a political "rock-star."
