Oh Ashoka..you should read more from past posts... I did...was infact GO Obama - 5 times... after hearing couple of speeches...BUt then reading and hearing both liberal/conservative media and views...researching... hearing views from general public..all I could say is Obama is an execellent Orator...he worked hard to become a senator... as a person have high regard ... his campaign was well managed...aur kuchh add karu, if that makes you happy...
on the other side... he was full of flip flops right till the very end... he was unclear on his radical associations... he had no plan of his own, ... he cashed out on influencing people with inspiration speeches/words with no substance...and greatly on his Rock star image and finally main stream media...
good that you at least appreciate his oration,
thankfully there should be no one to oppose that
About rest of the things,
i'd say we'd be jumping to a conclusion too fast ,
i don't say that Obama will do well or bad, time will tell,
but i would say that Obama did well enough to at least give me hope
And .............., its not easy to impress the media either !!
All i'd say is don't start disliking him or rather don't form a biased opinion against him before his actions come into the picture. He himself had said around 20th january , in an interview that now on it would be his actions that will judge him as an president and not his words
So uptil now , if his words were to judge him (as he was not given a chance to execute actions)
i'd say he did a commendable job.
Meanwhile , i must add i am not an avid fan of O,
just a normal person who liked his speeches and who hopes that he does well in future
Btw, you should also hope that he does well,
its not going to do you any harm,
and i guess in the end Obama might have an easier chance to impress you ,
cos you already have low expectations from him
