Obamas holdninger - et reality-tjek

Mange er blevet forført at hans håbefulde taler og hans indtagende karisma. Men få danskere ved, hvad USA's nye præsident Barack Obama egentlig står for som politikere.

Vi har hørt de store ord og kender til de store politiske linjer og visioner som 'change' og hans ønske om samle den amerikanske befolkning. Men hvad betyder det helt konkret?

Nogle af Obamas holdninger kan komme som en overraskelse for danskerne.

Tjek nedenstående liste over Obamas politiske holdninger:

1) Går ind for dødsstraf.

2) Er imod homoseksuelle vielser.

3) Går ind for at gå ind med militær magt i Iran.

4)For flere soldater sendes til Afghanistan.

5) Imod at ALLE amerikanere får sygeforsikring.

6) For et militært angreb på Pakistan.

7) Imod en stramning af våbenloven i USA.

Okay... I'll be brave and say it.

I don't think it's a big deal that he is black. Maybe I'm too young, or maybe because I've lived where being white was a minority so I just don't pay attention to race. I sincerely don't look at him and see a black person though. I've been taught to ignore race for so long I guess I finally do.

HOWEVER, I realize our country has come a long way and that is wonderful... so I guess that is what is important.

I DO think he looks really young though. :) And I thought it was cute he kinda "messed up" saying his oath... showed he was a real person who was nervous.
