Chants

I don't know what this means, if anything.

Before the election, I was watching the president campaigning for someone, I don't remember who. The president was being heckled about AIDS funding. Of course, the president passed a comment to the effect that this should be taken up with the other side since he, Obama, gave more money to AIDS research than his predecessor. At this point, his supporters started chanting, "OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA, etc." to drown out the protestors.

Later that day I saw a republican campaigning. Again, I don't remember who it was. As the speech went on, at one point, the crowd started chanting, "USA, USA, USA, etc.". I was struck by the difference in chants.

Like I said earlier, I really don't know what this means. My own take, as a conservative republican is that the democrats think only of Obama while the republican think of our country first. What do you think?

I totally agree. Obama makes it all about him and so do they. It's kind of creepy, to be honest.

I absolutely agree with you, Mom, and you, BetteJo! Obama and company are so arrogant and self-serving.

I find it a weakness to always be blaming the Bush administration. It reminds me of a school kid's attempt to shift the blame for his own poor choices!
