America got what it asked for: a Rock Star Idol. A personality. An unknown shell.
He was elected by people who thought Sarah Palin was his Vice Presidential pick. He was elected by people who couldn't pick any elected politicians picture out of a group. 96% of the voting African American block voted for him because, despite being raised by his white mother and white grandmother, despite the fact that he was half white, despite the fact that his ancestors never endured slavery, he was "black". Hispanics voted for him. Many voted for him because he promised "change".
The media created the image of George W. Bush and it has nothing to do with reality.
We are a nation of empty headed drones who couldn't tell you WHY they believe anything. They get all their news from soundbites. They have no depth.
We got what the vast majority of the American voter wanted. Now we'll all have to live with the results.
