    Problem is a great deal of this particular candidates campaign was based singularly upon rhetoric and little of anything else.

    I absolutely agree. Those that actually believed what a Politician said are rather foolish.

    It will be easy to pick those people out in 2 years. They'll be wearing the big "O" hats and shirts and having bumper stickers with whatever the new propoganda slogan Obama and his people plan out.
    Or they will be doing the exact same thing for whoever is running against him.

    "Hope and Change"

    or

    "Maverick"

    And tell me which side bit more and harder onto the rhetoric and empty propoganda points

    Looks like you're starting to get it.

    So then what's the point? Why do we even bother with this message board, or enter a voting booth?
    The message board depends on what you get out of it. I can't say why others bother. As for the voting booth, mathematically, virtually all votes do not count beyond the amount in a certain equation.

    I think the ant-Obama attacks were about as equally empty and rhetoric-like.

    Sadly, for America, and for you, the Anti-Obama attacks are proving they were far more on the mark then the rhetoric of the Obama Campaign.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I'm not talking about attacks, talking about supporters and campaign rhetoric. Specifically the empty, non-policy focused, slogan type rhetoric. Which, in the last election, was "Hope and Change" on th Democrat side and "Maverick" on the Republican. Again, you tell me which of those two you heard repeated more and more fervantly by their supporters.

    In your opinion. For the most part, I'm pretty OK with what Obama has done so far.

    And I'm not talking about the "Maverick" moniker. I'm talking about the "anti- Hope and Change" stuff on the Republican side. Heard that about as much as I heard the "Hope and Change" crap.

    What "anit-hope and change" stuff? What rhetorical non-policy related slogan or theme specifically are you talking about? Vague "rhetoric negative about the other guy" isn't anything that's even debatable because its completely nebulous. Specifics CC, cause I can give you specifics concerning Obama's promises concerning post partisanship, change from politics as usual, etc.

    A "Progressive" that supports a "Progressive" President? CC... that's... shocking man.
