Question by Yummy23: Is Barack Obama getting support from spoiled college kids and wealthy Democrats bc it’s the cool thing to do?
Sometimes I think that a lot of the people who are so adamantly behind Obama are supporting him bc many of them think it’s the “cool” thing to do (besides Black people, which is a given, most of his support is from college kids and social elites with few or no pressing problems). Most of them are White, upper class, and probably don’t know any black people and don’t have any black friends, but they think by throwing their support behing Obama, they’re down with Black people by proxy, and they can show everyone they’re progressive and not racist. But when you ask a lot of these people why they are supporting him in terms of specific issues, most people are like, “Uh, I think he can unite people.” I was one of those people who hopped on the Obama bandwagon for a period of time, but the more I learned about him, the less I found him to be a credible candidate. He’s smart and well-connected…but I do think he’s more of a fad than a substantial agent of change. Is Obama mostly trendy?

what the hell does uniting people have to do with being the president of the United States???????
The president (ANY PRESIDENT) is a power monger, who walked over everyone to get where he is. That includes your PAL Obama.
Any one can talk about change. Big Friggin Deal.
