Since last week all we’ve heard from the PUMA – Repug set is that Obama’s trip to the Middle East and Europe is all about razzle-dazzle and short on substance. Well guess what folks, you’re partially right, this trip for the most part is primarily for show, but people are wrong when they say it is short on substance. Obama is not the type of man that does anything lacking in substance, and the fatal flaw that many of his opponents have made is thinking this man is a light weight and can be easily dismissed. What these and many people also fail to realize is that we are long overdue for a little razzle-dazzle. The nation has been ground down by a seemingly endless war, through the roof energy cost, a mortgage crisis, failing banks, declining job rate, and climbing food costs.
The truth of matter is what most of Mr. Obama’s critics really resent is not his stands, nor his style, but his success. Repeatedly they underestimate just what a master of the game he is. When this campaign is said and done I think the biggest mistake made by Senator McCain was that he “dared” Senator Obama to go to Iran. Well John, how’s that working out for you? Not only has Senator Obama seen your bet, but he’s raised you!
So let the nay sayers cluck away, I for one plan on kicking back and enjoy the razzle-dazzle!
