Obama 08

Je n'ai pas regardé le débat hier.
Dommage car le format - finalement autour d'une table ronde - avait tout pour me plaire. Mais le résultat était déjà prévisible : il était clair qu'Obama serait sorti grand gagnant, à moins qu'il ne commette une bourde irréparable.
J'ai donc vaqué à d'autres occupations.

Mes inquiétudes n'ont point disparues pourtant. Toutes mes amies sont sous le charme de cet homme charismatique et complètement extatiques à l'idée (et persuadées) qu'une page de l'Histoire va être tournée le 4 novembre. Il reste néanmoins une question existentielle :
Est ce que les américains sont prêts à élire un président qu'ils considèrent "noir" ?


  1. Seul Dieu sait...
    Mais si il y a quelque chose que les Américains aiment, c'est leur argent et avec la crise, ils vont simplement élire le président qui va leur laisser garder le peu d'argent qui leur reste.

  2. Voila un truc que j'ai repris d'un autre site

    A question of perspective :
    Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were switched
    around?….. think about it.

    Would the country’s collective point of view be different? Could
    racism be the culprit?

    Ponder the following:

    What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage, including
    a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?

    What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
    What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

    What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a divorcee?

    What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe
    disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?

    What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while
    he was still married?

    What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to pain
    killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?

    What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

    What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
    (The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption
    in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings
    and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

    What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

    What if Obama couldn’t read from a teleprompter?

    What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included
    discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?

    What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many
    occasions, a serious anger management problem?

    What if Michelle Obama’s family had made their money from beer distribution?

    What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

    You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected reality,
    do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?

    This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
    positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in
    another when there is a color difference.

    Educational Background:

    Barack Obama:
    Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in
    International Relations.
    Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

    Joseph Biden:
    University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science.
    Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)


    John McCain:
    United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

    Sarah Palin:
    Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
    North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
    University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
    Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
    University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

    Education isn’t everything, but this is about the two highest offices in
    the land as well as our standing in the world. You make the call.
