Some may have similar views about members of the British cabinet, particularly the very interesting series of Home Secretaries whose policies shock and amaze those of us who thought Britain was a mature democracy, free country, light of the world, etc etc. Facilis descensus averno.

Hooray! A president who is everything that Bush wasn't - smart, witty, articulate, well-read, Democratic and black.
What a wonderful package! The world rejoices! At last, a world leader who promises real change.

Operator Bell said "whoever wins the election, nothing will change". I believe there will be change. I'm just not convinced it will be for the better.
Let's open the package and look inside:
26/01/05: Obama voted to confirm Condoleezza Rice for Secretary of State. Rice was largely responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent victims in unnecessary wars.

01/02//05: Obama was part of a unanimous consent agreement not to filibuster the nomination of lawless torturer Alberto Gonzales as chief law enforcement officer of the United States (U.S. Attorney General).

15/02/05: Obama voted to confirm Michael Chertoff, a proponent of water-board torture and the man behind the round-up of thousands of people of Middle-Eastern descent following 9/11.

21/04/05: Obama voted to make John ‘Death Squad’ Negroponte the National Intelligence Director. In Central America, John Negroponte was connected to death squads that murdered nuns and children in sizeable quantities. He is suspected of instigating death squads while in Iraq, resulting in the current insurgency. Instead of calling for Negroponte's prosecution, Obama rewarded him by making him National Intelligence Director.

21/04/05: Obama voted for HR 1268, war appropriations in the amount of approximately $81 billion. Much of this funding went to Blackwater USA and Halliburton and disappeared.

01/07/05: Obama voted for H.R. 2419, termed ‘The Nuclear Bill’ by environmental and peace groups. It provided billions for nuclear weapons activities, including nuclear bunker buster bombs. It contains full funding for Yucca Mountain, a threat to food and water in California, Nevada, Arizona and states across America.

26/09/05 & 28/09/05: Obama refused to place a hold on the nomination of John Roberts, a supporter of permanent detention of Americans without trial, and of torture and military tribunals for Guantanamo detainees.

07/10/05: Obama voted for HR2863, which appropriated $50 billion in new money for war.

15/11/05: Obama voted for the Defense Authorization Act (S1042) which kept the war and war profiteering alive, restricted the right of habeas corpus and encouraged terrorism.

21/12/05: Obama confirmed his support for war by voting for the Conference Report on the Defense Appropriations Act (HR 2863) which provided more funding to Halliburton and Blackwater.

02/05/06: Obama voted for money for more war by voting for cloture on HR 4939, the emergency funding to Halliburton, Blackwater and other war profiteers.

04/05/06: Obama, again, voted to adopt HR4939: emergency funding to war profiteers.

13/06//06: Obama voted to commend the armed services for a bombing that killed innocent people and children and reportedly resulted in the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Michael Berg, whose son was reportedly killed by al-Zarqawi, condemned the attack and expressed sorrow over the innocent people and children killed in the bombing that Obama commended.

15/06/06: Obama voted for the conference report on HR4939, a bill that gave warmongers more money to continue the killing and massacre of innocent people in Iraq.

15/06/06: Obama, again, opposed withdrawal of the troops, by voting to table a motion to table a proposed amendment that would have required the withdrawal of US. Armed Forces from Iraq and would have urged the convening of an Iraq summit (S Amdt 4269 to S. Amdt 4265 to S2766).

22/06//06: Obama voted against withdrawing the troops by opposing the Kerry Amendment (S. Amdt 4442 to S 2766) to the National Defense Authorization Act. The amendment, which was rejected, would have brought the troops home.

22/06/06: Obama voted for cloture (the last effective chance to stop) on the National Defense Authorization Act (S 2766), which provided massive amounts of funding to defense contractors to continue the killing in Iraq.

22/06/06: Obama again voted for continued war by voting to pass the National Defense Authorization Act (S 2766) for continued war funding.

07/09/06: Obama voted to give more money to profiteers for more war (H..R. 5631).

29/09/06: Obama voted vote for the conference report on more funding for war, HR 5631.

16/11/06: Obama voted for nuclear proliferation in voting to pass HR 5682, a bill to exempt the United States-India Nuclear Proliferation Act from requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954.

06/12/06: Obama voted to confirm pro-war Robert M. Gates to be Secretary of Defense. Gates is a supporter of Bush's policies of pre-emptive war and conquest of foreign countries.

Obama's voting record in 2007 establishes that he continues to be pro-war. On March 28, 2007 and March 29th, 2007, he voted for cloture and passage of a bill designed to give Bush over $120 billion to continue the occupation for years to come (with a suspendable time table) and inclusive of funding that could be used to launch a war with Iran.

In 2006 Obama lent his celebrity and political finance assistance to neoconservative war Senator Joe Lieberman’s (“D”-Connecticut) struggle against the Democratic antiwar insurgent Ned Lamont. Obama supported other mainstream Democrats fighting genuinely antiwar progressives in primary races, collaborating with Democratic muscle man Rahm Emannuel’s campaign to marginalize “peaceniks” within the party (see Sirota 2006, Silverstein 2006 and Cockburn 2006). Upon winning the election, Obama immediately appointed Rahm Emannuel to White House chief of staff. Of Israeli parentage, Emannuel is a strong Israel partisan who supported President Bush's position on Iraq and was the top House recipient in the 2008 election cycle of contributions from hedge funds, private equity firms and the larger securities/investment industry.

In a November 2005 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Obama rejected Rep. John Murtha’s (D-Pa.) call for a rapid redeployment and any notion of a timetable for withdrawal. Obama advocated “a pragmatic solution to the real war we’re facing in Iraq” and made repeated references to the need to “defeat” the “insurgency.”

Earlier that same year, Obama shamefully distanced himself from his fellow Senator Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) forthright criticism of U.S. torture practices at Guantanamo (Street 2005; Cockburn 2006).

He refuses to forswear the use of first-strike nuclear weapons against Iran (Gerson 2007).

It should also be mentioned that Zbigniew Brzezinski is Obama's advisor on Middle Eastern policy. Brzezinski was advisor to Kennedy, Johnson, Carter and Bush senior and boasted about his role in militarising the Taliban.

Quotes from Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard

On the other hand, despite the media's best efforts, one in a hundred Americans voted for a candidate who actually condemned the 9/11 cover-up, the loss of habeas corpus, the illegal and immoral occupying of two countries and the killing of more than a million people and the folly of printing trillions of dollars to hand out to private bankers (which Obama supported). That candidate happened to be black and female but was fastidiously ignored by the media.

Racism is certainly vintage Jimmy but it no longer passes as amusement.

I would certain echo Mr. Pennymachines sentiments here. Part of the excitement surrounding Senator Obama's election is the opportunity for Americans to see if we can begin to put our overt and divisive racist past to rest. I have always regarded the United Kingdom as far more enlightened than we when it comes to equality. Please don't disappoint me.
