Why I'm Backing Obama

Fuck knows. I mean really. I thought Blair was going to be the "Third Way" and look what happened. I haven't got a good track record on these things. I can usually guess who is going to become the next Tory leader from one look at the candidates. As for a "least worst" leader in this world we live in I try really hard not to get sucked in because it's often a huge disappointment. He's got a nice smile? If he rides in on a "Kennedy-esque wave" he might actually do something? The mad 'mentalists might give him a chance to develop plans for a safer world before exploding? God knows. Anyway I know I probably shouldn't, bite size TV politics being like crack an' all but I'm backing Obama apparently.

There is no such thing as the "Third Way". Its just another euphemism for socialism. When something has a bad reputation, there is usually an attempt to change the name to fool people that its is different. For example, in the US, Socialists started calling themselves Liberals in the mid 1960s. It worked, people confuse the term Liberal with its dictionary definition. Teachers in the US have a bad reptuation for being dumbasses, so they start calling themselves "Educators".

I would agree with you except the third way changed socialism into Thatcherism by a different name. Socialism died here a long time ago.

Obama? Has he ever committed to anything but being nice? What are his policies?

Like I say, fuck knows. "Yes we can" and "being nice" I think. It might work. Can he play the saxaphone?
