Does Hope and Change Work?

Barack Hussein Obama used a message of 'hope and change' to woo a lot of potential voters to his side. There is not much definition to this 'hope and change' agenda, but it is gauranteed to work. I have located an expert in the 'hope and change' field who may be able to give us some insight. George has been enrolled in Obama's School of Hope and Change for sometime. See if it matches your dream for the future. http://blogevolve.com/passion-for-the-down-trodden djbtol

I agree that government hand outs lead to a cycle of dependency, but I don't think the programs can be instantly cut until a new plan is in place. And that is where I believe in "hope and change", and I think some of Obama's ideas attack the structural root of poverty. As for the brother issue, I don't mess around in other peoples' family business, as I wouldn't want them messing in mine. Everybody has circumstances, and all of my friends that I would count as having "character" have been forced to make hard decisions. So I will respect the privacy of a presidential candidate as I would respect the privacy of my daily acquaintances!

I assume then, that you would agree, that the number of houses McCains own is their business? Seems that is their business. djbtol

I'm not as against using it against him, but I really don't care. It's no secret that you need to be wealthy to run for President, and while I'm not sure I would ever NEED that many houses, people earn their money and its their right to spend it as they see fit.

I know that one of the houses is used by an elderly aunt. Wealth, really is not an issue since Congress is loaded with wealthy people. As far as using it against McCain, it's kind of meaningless. djbtol

This is an interesting post. I always enjoy people who quote blogs as fact, and use Barack's middle to scare people. I am sure that you are going to vote for Sidney McCain, and from this post it looks like you are due to your fear of Barack Obama. I believe that Barack Obama would change the way our country is run, I believe that he will change our outlook on ourself, and the world. I believe that he can bring Democrats, and republicans together to help the country. We need a change more today, then any other time in our history.

Well, Obama Hussein (no scare intended) has had zero success in uniting people in his own party. Think PUMA. These are people who see eye to eye on most things, since Hillary and Obama had very little difference in policy positions. He is not going to work with Republicans, I can promise that. George Bush and the recent congress have attempted some of this unification with the democrats, and the only time there was any success was when the Republicans compromised key positions (stupid!).

Barack Obama can work with people from both parties to get things done. Yes, there some people in the democratic party that don't want to work with him, because they are part of the Clinton faction of the party. The reasons that Democarts have not worked more with republicans is because the current administration has alreay lied to the Democrats in congress. After 9/11 they told the Democrats, and the world that they will work together to unit the country to go after the terrrorist. The administration went it's own way, and when congressed questioned what the administration was doing, they told them to shut up. Mr. Cheney showed the world how much respect, and unity he had for a representative when he called him a four letter word on the Senate floor. Mr. Cheney's response was: "it was overdue", would you work with a people like this? Do you feel this is the kind of words that unit people. I think that Barack can end this kind of fighting, but that is my opinion.

The change he is talking about is our Constitution. Our right to keep and bare arms, our right to free speech, our right to assemble, our right to religion or lack of, and our right to work hard and enjoy the fruits of our labor. This is the change we can hope for.

"There is not much definition to this 'hope and change' agenda" Utter nonsense. You don't know because you have no desire to educate yourself; you don't want to know. Obama's policy positions and plans for the Presidency are well-documented on his website, much better so than McCain's (his energy policy alone has more than twice as much detail).
