great expectations

January 25, 2009

i recently watched the presidential inaguration  and re-watched Return of the King. Athough i am not a fan of former president Bush and has been said time and again, it is hard in politics to claim what did not happen on his watch.  President Obama is a vital symbol – he is one man, still he is a man. The fiscal crisis is perhaps the challenge that this generation of Americans need to overcome.  Change is important esspecially when it is espoused by leaders but the people need to embody this.  After all, the reliance on one man to change the entire system is foolhardy at best – the behavior of the entire nation must change for any lasting differences.    It is unfair to rely on one man for true change to occur.
