Obama brings hope to foreign policy


Recommended Posts

The opportunity for America to regain its position in the world has presented itself again with Barrack Obama as the president. We all saw how the world was overwhelmed by the outcome of this election. The question we should then ask ourselves is why were people all over the world so contempt with Obama as the president of the United State when in fact we have never seen this behavior in the history of America? Was it because of the past performance of the previous presidential régime which people thought had a negative impact on populations from most part of the world? Or can we perhaps say the president past and racial ethnicity defines a sense of unity that has attracted people all over the world to relate to him on different levels.


I tend to believe that a relationship exist between these two outcomes. Considering his past, I for one can say that he was brought up by a single mother just like I did and for him to have such turnout is even more surprising. The only different there is that he’s biracial which I think is perfect because as people we tend to be attracted to those who look like us. In his case both blacks and whites were able to relate because both groups could see their half in him. I suspect that there’s going to be a lots of little Obamas being born in this country in the next four years. In addition, we notice his passing in Jakarta Indonesia where he was educated to respect the values of other cultures. The short involvement of his Kenyan father which influenced his potential to become a good father to his children is all part of common ground that people relates to. And beside, after graduated from Harvard, he picked an exceptional woman to be his wife, Michelle Obama. It is a fact that some blacks would have looked at him differently had he chosen to lighten his heritage as opposed to add more color to it. Nonetheless, the truth is their relationship had nothing to do with race since both of them can be identified as black. However though to some extent interracial relationships promote unity, so instead of being ashamed of your white boyfriend, you should instead show him off. And those who don’t like it can do you know what.


Moreover, in the first outcome if we were to contemplate on how the Bush administration conducted their leadership, most would say it was impossible to succeed. The idea that “you’re either with us or against us” does philosophically constraint ones ability to reason. It leaves one no room to justified when in fact one can’t accept without justifying. The ability to reason is what makes us human. So when they ask us not to think they’re treating us like animals. We the American people should never again under no circumstances accept this command from any administration. It is obvious that our reputation has ruin but with Barrack Obama the possibility to gain it back is now possible. I’d like to see us take advantage of this love we’re now receiving from the world, use it to protect our interest while restoring diplomacy. We’re a country of melting pot, our citizens roots are all origins of other countries. Our role in this world is not to be bullies but rather a peace maker. Former president Clinton said to us at the democratic national convention that “The people have always been impressed by the power of our examples than the examples of our power”. If you think I was making this up now you know. Our leaders have been communicating with us all alone folks, we’re just not listening. It’s seemed like the only time we pay attention is when we’re faced with difficulties.


It is clear that foreign policy is going to be a big issue and how the Obama administration conduct it’s policies will determine how the world will see us. We hope that Obama’s administration doesn’t applied constraint that will leave doors close for bilateral talk. If I want to resolve my conflict with John, I must communicate my disagreement with him in order for us to know where we stand. Not only is communication the first step to diplomacy but it’s also the most basic form of civilization. A nuclear Iran is more dangerous without bilateral talk than it is when we’re communicating. They say keep your best friend close and your enemy closer. If we think of Iran as an enemy, it would seem logical to me that we should talk instead of neglecting them. If our reasons are justified than talking with Iran should only be seen as an opportunity.


When the loads are that heavy only minuscule steps can prevent them from falling! It’s apparent that the Obama administration is walking into a six foot hole, to get out of it will require more than four years. However, one step at a time is the way to go. Stimulus packages, job creation, retrieving our militant from Iraq are the formation of steps to take. His ideas are good; he focused his priority on the economy because without stable jobs Americans are unstable. Stability will come when the above mentioned are achieved but how long it will take is a question that not even the Obama administration can trustfully answer.


A president secrete weapon is his cabinet and so far his armored are looking good. Though nut Rahm Emanuel is precisely that. He served under Bill Clinton as Deputy Chief of Staff. Another former Clinton guy, John Podesta who was Bill Clinton Chief of Staff. Robert Gibbs, who served as a press secretary in John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign. That’s exactly what I’m talking about when I say the same people who brought us prosperity under Clinton years are the same folks who are going to bring it to us again. As you can see everyone whose part of this team is experience? This is what I call the team of mavericks not the Sarah Palin types. It is obvious that this is not a job opportunity, everyone on this team so far is influential and able to pull strings.


Blacks in the white house signified change already why is it then some people are still asking what does change mean. Change is an out of the ordinary occurrence, something that doesn’t always happen, something new. What we experienced under George W. Bush was also a change. It may have been a negative change depending on how one looks at it but it was indeed a change. If one was to compare the Clinton years to that of George W. Bush, it would be apparent that the national deficit under Clinton didn’t almost reach the sky. However though change is what we make of it. If we’re involve as the French people are we can make change seems like a walk in the park. Unity is what gives birth to change, without it they can’t be no change. "L'UNION FAIT LA FORCE".
