This is what I posted on anothetr forum in response to " Are expectations for President Obama impossible to meet? "
Naaah, I don't think so.
He himself went on and on about "Change ... Yes We Can", didn't he? Right.
The first time I heard the campaign slogan, knowing how politics 'works', I thought, 'this is going to be interesting, especially in the light of the adage "the more things change, the more they stay the same". That campaing slogan, given its in- and extrinsic value, must backfire. Change in the world of politics? Since when?
The ones who came up with that one, made a fundamental mistake and someone with intelligence would've realized this and would've thought up another one.'
It wouldn't surprise me a bit when the slogan that assured the election will also be the very thing assuring the downfall.
I mean, really, if humans are indeed so prone to change, then how do we explain 5700 years of Judaism, 2000 years of Christianity, 1400 years of Mohammedism - in short; the state of the world as it is in?
"Change ... Yes We Can" and the state of the world on a political level, and that's what we are talking here; politics, are mutually exclusive because if we can change, we would've done so a long time ago and the world would be a different place. It isn't.
