I'm worried

Yes, this is well mixed and sound rich. Is this the beginning of a new religion? I hear slogans; I don't hear policies. I voted for Obama over other candidates because I went to their websites and read their PLATFORMS! Obama's was unique. The emphasis wasn't on the sexy issues. He started with REAL prison reform, REAL lobbiest reform, REAL infrastruture changes that included internet and green technologies. He outlined a POSITIVE, diplomacy-based foreign policy. I heard little of that in the campaign propoganda. "Obama Girl?" That's an insult to Michelle! I worry about the cult of Obama. Let's get to work and BE the change.

GOOD EDITING! EAR CANDY!
