a reflection the day after

november 5 2008

Obama has won the elections with such a large distance ahead that truly a mayority of the population of the USA has choosen him.
There's no doubt about that.

People here are very happy.

None knows if things will be better, even though we all hope that, but we sure know things will be different.

McCain was very clear in his speech what he expected from his followers, but not all republicans were able to give Obama at least the benefit of the doubt.

I saw one of them looking into the future: "Obama will bring a huge recession upon us, the guy is no good."

Well, the recession is certainly not due to his actions, I can tell him that.
The bad economic situation is one of the terrible inheritances Obama has to deal with.
It's like a steamtrain on a track down to the valley. It can't be stopped.

The troubles took a long time to develop and according to one unnamed law it takes at least twice the time to get over it.

You can't expect change immediately.
The country deteriorated during 8 long years and one of the consequences of bad leadership is a lack of available funds to solve all the problems at once.

Obama can't wash away debts.

But he already gives people hope.

And even though one can't eat from hope, one can find the way to work towards a goal.

Good luck Mr. Obama.


  1. I agree, having hope is at least a beginning. Hope is something many americans had lost.

  2. I'm glad that the americans voted for Obama as their president. He brings in a lot of hope, not just for the americans, but for the world as well.

  3. Congratulations to all of you my American fellows!!!
    I'm sure that Mr.Obama will be a great president!
    The US government was needing some new blood to move on.
