hes not even that smart basically saying the same things as cameron nothings going to change why is anyone even excited nothings going to change
what cynical london twenty-somethings say?
I had no idea he was going to set this moving again. This is brilliant news.
delighted that he will forge ahead with this.
I had hope when he mentioned in his inaugural speech that science should be back at the forefront.
he mentioned 'unbelievers'
which is a pretty massive thing really.
I was listening to it in the car and when he said non-believers I nearly fucking crashes.
Over the fecking moon that a US president mentioned non-believers!
if I was a Sikh i'd be dead miffed.
especially in his first speech as president addressing the world.
Maybe Obama is a closet atheist!!!!
he was an atheist. Until he started with his community work in chicago which he arranged through churches. This was when he converted. Nothing to do with being an aspiring politician though Im sure.
Not that I blame him, its not like he was going to get anwhere going "I'm black, progressive AND an atheist. Vote for me America"
He's like Abe Lincoln and Miles Davis playing hoops in a hot tub whilst Jesus plays Hendrix solos nearby ON FIRE!!!
Fair play to the man. Lets get one for us! :o)
Mainly due to the hype, and every other person in the world claiming he would save it, without having a clue about his policies. But the first few days have been good: cleaning up politics, guantanmo, waterboarding and now this... good start.
But its nice to see some of the smaller injustices being undone before he tackles some of the big issues.
I remain sceptical on his ability to solve them.
i was sceptical but he has impressed me thus far. let's hope it continues.
