Obama’s hope!

Posted on Updated on

I have been watching the meteoric run of Barrack Hussein Obama for the past few months. It seems obvious that his strength is not in his stance on policy but in the collective American imagination. His victories have come from the imagination of people looking for others to improve their lives. This will make Barrack Hussein Obama harder to beat because, albeit imaginary, he is leading a movement.

Just as Ronald Reagan led a conservative movement, Barrack Hussein Obama is leading an emotional movement. Reagan lead a revolution based upon conservative principles, which were clearly outlined and defined. That movement was founded on the ideas of smaller government, lower taxes, and a strong national stance against communism. Barack Hussein Obama’s movement is based upon imagination and daydreaming about what “hope” means to the individual.

This will make him much harder to defeat because ‘hope’ springs eternal. He has tapped into the cry for help so many utter when they think of their own lives. Even though their personal views may not line up with reality, people vote based upon their perception, not based upon the facts. In order to better understand Barack Hussein Obama we should look at the persuasive power of emotional leaders of the past.

Leaders of great movements have the ability to identify with the problem, real or imagined, of those being led. Bill Clinton had, “I feel your pain” when he ran for President; Barack Hussein Obama offers ‘hope’ that the pain will go away. It does not matter if the pain is in the imagination of the masses – it only matters that they feel the pain.

    The Republicans haven’t even started piling the dirt on this guy.

    BO is the #1 most liberal U.S. Senator, it will be like shooting fish in a barrel.

    I think the Democrats will look back and say “now why didn’t we pick Hillary?”
