We say them shaking hands. We saw Chevez give Obama a book about how the US and Europe have ravaged south America. We thought we were out of the woods. At least some of us did. But after Obama made it clear that he is not about making any real changes Chevez apparently did a double take. http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=114023§ionid=351020704 Listening to Obama's speech when he sold the idea of sending 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan I felt I was not hearing a real human being. I got the strange feeling I was listening to a highly sophisticated android built with cutting edge technology.. Talk about cognitive dissonance. Was this shi+ actually coming out of the mouth of the man I had voted for? Now I remember when he said his views on the war were not all that different from those of George Bush. But like so many I had blinked when he said that. Caught up in the fervor of the "first Black president" I let it slide. Before Obama came on the scene the rest of the world had written the US off as a dying power. Well hope was his trump card and he has already played it so there is nothing he can say that will quench the spirit of revolution.
