Obama's Eloquency Sells But Fails to Deliver

Why is it that a large portion of a nation's population -- pick any country -- go out of their way to worship certain pop-culture characters? Successful musicians, actors, athletes, religious leaders and politicians have cult-followings. Why would anyone assume that these individuals merit extra attention?

We have seen this in politics forever. It is because of Obama's recent cult-like following that forces us to re-examine this phenomena.

He is a man that is eloquent and has a gift with the spoke word. That is what attracts his followers. His words have no substance. I cannot image this passionate following to continue through November, but I could be wrong.

How long will people remain hypnotized with "change," "hope," "yes we can," and "si se puede?" How long will we base our vote on some belief that the politician "inspires?"

Ask any of his cult followers: What qualifies Obama to be President? What legislation has Obama been behind? What real-world experience does Obama have? They cannot respond because he has accomplished nothing.

With Hillary, we have a heave and detest factor working. We all know she is as creepy as they come and is married to a real creepy guy. She is a wolf in a bad disguise. Obama is more like a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Both have Marxist tendencies. Listen to Obama's words...they are Marxist at their core. From Wikipedia, most forms of Marxism share:

-- An attention to the material conditions of people's lives, and social relations among people
-- A belief that people's consciousness of the conditions of their lives reflects these material conditions and relations
-- An understanding of class in terms of differing relations of production, and as a particular position within such relations
-- An understanding of material conditions and social relations as historically malleable
-- a view of history according to which class struggle, the evolving conflict between classes with opposing interests, structures each historical period and drives historical change
-- A sympathy for the working class or proletariat
-- A belief that the ultimate interests of workers best match those of humanity in general.

I am not a fan of McCain, but he is certainly better than a Marxist.
