How much difference will it make?

Nov

Hope is a funny word.

It is undeniable that Barack Obama has
inspired many millions of people across the world. His acceptance
speech was, I think it is fair to say, one of the most remarkable
oratory performances the world has seen. The hope he has instilled in
people, not only Americans but people all over the planet, is
phenomenal.

I'm So Sad

Nov

I'm too disheartened to re-write the blog i just spent half an hour writing and accidently deleted so my view in short is that Obama's journey to Presidency is at risk of overshadowing his Presidency itself. I doubt it but this can often be the case regarding Woodrow Wilson. Ask me tomorrow if you would like me to elaborate but i am too upset to re write the 400 words i just deleted.

Ever wondered why journalists have such a long established tradition of resisting state regulation? Isn't Hazel marvellous?

Obama Breaks Down Barriers and Makes History

Nov
05

The election of Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America is a truly momentous event. He has broken down racial barriers and proved that race is no hinderance to seeking high office. The most powerful man in the world is an African-American. This would have seemed unthinkable to people growing up in the Civil Rights era. Many thought that they would never see this day come.

The Hard Work Is Yet To Come

Nov

Firstly, I'd like to congratulate Barrack Obama on a landslide victory following on from a campaign which has embraced and captured the hearts of Americans. His election as next President is a monumental historical event, and I truly believe that he is capable of improving the current financial situation. However, we have yet to see any concrete evidence of policies which will systematically change the electorate's lives for the better. I'm sure he is full to the point of bursting with political breakthroughs, but the hype of the election has in my eyes clouded over this somewhat.

It is also well known, that US has been planning to build a missile-defense shield all over the world - including areas bordering Russia. Russia has been complaining about the unjust situation that would follow such decisions.
