why is obama so popular? if..
he gives little detail on what he plans to change? I don't understand are American people dumb? Are those Germans who were listening to him on that day dumb? its like this, I advertise to Jim from Texas a new car, and he asks me whats the difference to his old car, I say it will change his experience of driving, and that he must believe in this change.. And then he says ok he'll buy it.. Is it that simple, If politicians have been promising change for years and years, why do people still believe them? im not for mccain, im actually for obama but i am just wondering why obama is always critised for not giving detail on his change...

Alex. Do you know what McCain's plans are? If so, you must have done some research to find that information. Take some time and do some research on Obama and you will find the information you want. Additionally, you don't encourage others to believe your point of view by calling them dumb.

If you think he gives too little detail, you're not looking hard enough. Think of an issue that you think he's vague about. Then google it or look on his website and I guarantee you you'll find his position.

Obama's definition of change is changing his policy to match that of the Republican's.

Beats the hell out of me, the guy doesn't have an idea of his own, he's just copying what other people have already stated, other states have already implemented, he now wants a piece of the pie and doesn't want John McCain to get all the glory, NOW Barry is all about energy. I say, bah, humbug. MCCAIN '08

Many of Obama's supporters do not realize this campaign slogan has been used endlessly in the past. In many cases, this is their first presidential election. Fortunately, there are 50 million independent voters who have lived through many an election and recognize a fraud when they hear one. Obama will not win in... More

He was popular, and now that people are beginning to realize he is not the chosen one, that he is actually an arrogant, self absorbed socialist, the popularity is dwindling. Vote Anti Socialism Vote Republican

If you package the slogan nicely than people will go for it. It all depends on how you deliver the package. Package can be empty, but hope is what people are looking for. People are optimistic in nature, and cons know how to take advantage of that.i

He's on msnbc talking about energy at this moment. If you are really interested turn it on. It answers your question. But if you're not really interested in what he has to say just stay here and lie on him. But it would make you really dumb.

To use you example, I have a car, it sucks I want a new one. I see one on the lot that is the same make and model as my current car (John McCain), and see this shiny new one (Obama). I buy Obama, even if there is no guarentee of any change for the better, I know I hate the one I have so why not try the different one... More

Hey Leslie C, this is an election for President of the United States. Not one thing that you sight with your links has anything to do with the issues this country is facing. You are one of the people the McCain ad with Paris and Britney is reffering to.

It's classic "Nixon/Kennedy" syndrome. Obama has no foreign policy credentials, but he looks good on camera. He's an anchor to sucker in young people (especially young women) like the proverbial Walrus in Alice in Wonderland. He can't discuss his agenda specifically because of its sinister nature.His plans for change... More

I, as a voter, want to know details of how a person running for President of the United States would change something. Senator Obama never gives any details of what changes he would bring or how he is planning to bring these changes about except to raise taxes. This must appeal to young people and others who don't...
