Obama Words That Matter
Barack Obama's core campaign document is not just electioneering eyewash. It's conveys his intended presidential agenda, and, as billionaire investor Carl Icahn said recently, it could lead to "Runaway Legislation."
Senator Obama has emphasized the importance of words. They matter, he announced. So it's worthwhile to examine the pattern of key language within his 64-pages campaign document entitled "Blueprint For Change."
Most noteworthy are the words that detail what he proposes to do as POTUS. They not only inform us of his intentions; they also suggest the depth of adulation heaped upon him by his closest followers.
So, just what would a President Obama do?
On 60 occasions, promised action is prefaced with the words "He will..." For example: "He will...
The how of what he will do is absent. Sixty "to do" items, though, is hardly an overly aggressive list for a presidential candidate. But then there's an additional list of promises that begin with "Obama will."
Those number 267. For example: "Obama will...
That's just 10 "Obama will" examples out of a pool of 267, albeit including a few duplications. There isn't space here to display the entire list. It is, taken in total, breathtaking. It's a mistake to assume that it's a list only made for electioneering consumption and not to be taken seriously.
To get the full scope for yourself, run a word search of the Blueprint pdf. document for "He will" and "Obama will." Items conspicuously absent include: ‘Obama will...
Read the speech Obama gave to the graduating class, on Senator Kennedy's behalf, at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut to get a whiff of the audaciousness (it can mean "imprudent" as well as "bold") of his intentions. To include,
Just who is "I?" Shall we say goodbye to the Independent School District concept?
A more inquisitive MSM would probe his intentions and ask how he plans to engage the federal government in practically every venue of civic and personal affairs, short of bathroom behaviors contributing to good dental hygiene.
If the Blueprint is energetically pursued by the eager minions of an Obama administration, Icahn's "Runaway Legislation" prediction would materialize. That is unless Obama aims to accomplish many of his plans by presidential edict.
After all, his Blueprint mentions "Congress" only 13 (that's one-three) times.
