Obama is not "El Che"

One year has passed since the inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States. It is time to evaluate his work. Some people said they are disappointed. Why?

Throughout this year, Obama has tried to do what he promised. He is facing a big financial crisis, two wars, an ambitious reform of the American healthy system, etc. Moreover he cannot work in silence because he is a world idol. Everybody looks at him.

But the misunderstanding is to think he is a revolutionary man. He belongs to the system. He had to win the primary election in one of the two parties of the United States. He had to collect money; he had to negotiate with lobbies. He had really hard opponents. He defeats them. Nor he is a rebel. He is just a reformist. His Republican opponent would have been a reformist in case of being elected. The Western system is exhausted and in order to overcome the crisis some reforms are necessary. Democratic systems can only change slowly. People’s mind must be changed. Some people have to lost privileges, some business have to disappear. Justice is not cheap. We can but we have to find how to do it.

  1. I agree with you that he is just a part of the system and nothing revolutionary will happen. I personally cannot see any major differences between republican and democrat president candidates. It is just another illusion that people are not aware of.
