"Time for Change!" "We Have Hope." echos from an earlier Islamic Campaign

Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment
in response to reader comment: Obama and Hadith

Submitted by Shoal Creek Sage (United States), Feb 12, 2009 at 14:07

Obama's rise from nowhere to the American Presidency was rehearsed in Kenya two years earlier. In the year 2006, Obama went to Kenya and toured with the Islamic candidate campaigning on a 100 percent Islamic Platform. The Candidate, Arial Odinga, head of The Orange Democratic Movement received money from Obama for the campaign as well as Obama's elequent crowd-pleasing rhetoric.

Kenyan voters were encouraged by Obama to have 'hope' and vote for 'change.' "Kenya must have this new form of government!" said Obama.

The Orange Democratic Movement failed in the Kenyan Presidential election, but it worked like a charm in America.
