Obama 2012 – A Logo Of Renewal • 04.07.11
Let’s be honest about this: Barack Obama has lost the trust of many American liberals. His policies have not been the hoped-for dramatic departure from the agenda of George W. Bush.
Let’s be practical too, though. An election is not about getting exactly what you want. In a nation of over 300 million people, we have to choose the best of the available choices. In the 2012 presidential election, though Barack Obama is flawed, he’s preferable to the other choices.
The pro-Obama bumper sticker you see here is communicating that idea, I think. It’s features the same symbol used in the 2008 presidential election by Barack Obama, but this time, in the year 2012.
I see that symbol as a sun that’s rising again. It’s a symbol of reintroduction for liberals to Barack Obama. We’ve been through a dark night with Barack Obama, and Obama did a lot to let us down, but, as dark as the night was, Obama wasn’t the biggest of our problems, and Obama does make things brighter, he does make things better, than a Republican candidate can.
Obama is not really what we want, but he’s what we’ve got. Can we work with that?
