The times they are a changing



Eight years ago George W. Bush was elected President of the United States and I lost faith in the overall intelligence of citizens of that country to choose sensibly. I became more appalled  when they re-elected the idiot. Now I see that given enough time Americans can in fact make radical decisions and I am happy as a citizen of the world. I wish Barack Obama all the best as US President and, though I doubt he can make the changes he proposed completely, at least he has revitalised a new voter base in the United States.


On a side note I am pleased to see that my assessment of John McCain as a decent guy was correct as he has made one of the most  graceful and thoughtful concession speeches in recent memory. The US had a hard choice between two great candidates and I believe they chose wisely but as i said before….either choice would have been good.
