Since Obama showed up on the scene I’ve found it more than a little alarming to watch the masses trip over themselves to sing the praises of Obama. I admit I don’t know a lot about Obama’s policies, but I know enough to see several things that I think are a little frightening. For now I’ll just share The Knock on the Door on American Thinker about Obama’s top-down “grass roots” Movement. Does it make you think of anything? Like the only thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn anything from history? Honestly, it makes me wonder if at some point, some pledge-takers will be assigned the duty of looking for blog posts like this one and reporting and monitoring the dissidents.

Obama’s creative agency is already obviously very loyal (and probably very well paid).
“Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama’s nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future,” says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc. Husong tells me that he got the idea after seeing the famous Obama-Progress poster by artist Shepherd Fairey. “We wanted to get involved some way,” he says. So, the agency came up with their own a symbol of hope and progress that also plays off Obama’s name. “We thought, ‘Let’s try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama,’ ” says Husong.
