This Is Change?
The man of change had a little problem dealing with change in Detroit recently. Apparently two Muslim women at Obama’s rally in Detroit were barred from sitting behind the podium by campaign volunteers seeking to prevent the women’s headscarves from appearing in photographs or on television with the candidate.
While Barack did apologize to the women it is apparent that his campaign is overly sensitive on his image. Why? He is a man of change is he not? So should they not then be thrilled by the oppurtunity to show his diverstsity?
His campaign has worked very hard to try and disassociate Barack from the Muslim world. But to be so blantly obvivous does nothing but show he is part of the same political process as all the other candidates. His idea of change is the hot air we feel every election year, lot of talk and free flowing buzzwords, which once elected will ring with the hollowness that they are spoken today.
His lack of political experience may just be enough that he his naive enough to believe he can bring change to a process that has become rooted with political insiders and political action groups. Money and power drives what happens in Washington, and there is nothing this man can so or do that will change how things are done in this country.
Many people have taken notice of this and are starting to understand that the man of change is not the change they are looking for in America.
