Characteristics of Change? Not Hardly. When has he ever shown those?

Obama may or not have been Muslim, but it does not bear any weight against his ability to become President. However, anyone who really believes Barak is going to change anything is bound to be sorely disappointed. You want to believe his rhetoric, so you do, despite overwhelming evidence that he's just another crooked politician from the Chicago Political Machine.

Obama has never done anything but toe the Democratic Line. If he really wanted to prove he was an agent of change, he would have been on the phone to Pelosi begging her to bring members of the House back to debate the drilling issue. That might have actually redeemed him - at least given him the chance to prove his 'words-Just-Words'.

His ideals are radical, his associations are radical, and more importantly, his proclaimed economic policies are exactly the opposite of what is needed to bring our economy back around. Obama is a typical [read, nothing new here] Tax and Spend Democrat. He is for big government, and high taxes in a time when we need less government, lower taxes, and the market freedom to let things get better. Come to my Blog and you can read fair, critical thinking analysis of Obama's policies, practices, and political record.

You can find my blog at http://aweblogforcriticalthinkers.blogspot.com Nearly every time in history that a charismatic leader has been put in control by people with such blind allegiance it has ended quite badly. I challenge any Barak supporter, if you think you know him; prove it. Tell me one great thing that he has done in the whole of his political career. Don't tell me about speeches. Tell me about ACTIONS- something that he actually changed for the better.
