American Thunder, Midterm Elections
With only 4 days for Midterm Elections US the countdown is on. United States politics is hard play, and now the guns come out. The West Virginia Democratic Senate candidate and current Governor, Joe Manchin took out a rifle to get his point across. His shot to cap and trade bill sounded off in the national television. But he was not the only one on the air.
President Barack Obama appeared on “The Daily Show”. It was clear it was no time for jokes. According to The Washington Post, the US economy grew at a 2 percent annual rate in the third quarter as consumer spending climbed. President Barack Obama spoke about the spinning that the Health Care Bill had undergone. Once again he patiently explained it had been installed -and was working- in the interest of the American people. President Obama said that people that are suffering from a disease now do not have to sell their house to get healthcare.
This midterm elections is more than just about who gets the football. Fear campaigns and meet and greet times are over. President Barack Obama repeated the words, “Yes we can but it is not going to happen over night”.
As certain shoes go under certain demonstrators that rally and as the clock ticks the international media and the world watch the turning points. The words which made some laugh for others had a different meaning.
“Yes we can”. Barack Obama used those same words in his presidential campaign. Back then he running up against the Bush established system. “Yes we can but it is not going to happen overnight”, where the same words Barack Obama pronounced in the historical speech when he became the elected President of the United States.
Words like, “Yes we can.” which sound like repetition in reality show a direction forward and a continuation of policies. And that is what the midterm elections are all about. A continuation of the policies of the President’s Administration, or block and shoot down and restoration of the policies of the previous administration.
