Obama a Brand

From Dr. Lynette Long, democrat and former Clinton supporter: "Obama is a brand just like any other brand. Obama the Brand has a logo, a tag line, t-shirts, and a song. But Obama the man is not the same as Obama the Brand. Obama the Brand talks about new style politics, while Obama the man used Chicago style politics in every one of his elections. Obama the brand is for women’s rights while Obama the man marginalizes women and his supporters wear Sarah Palin is a cunt t-shirts. Obama the brand is pro-Israel, Obama the man is not. Obama the brand touts leadership while Obama the man voted present 130 times in the US Senate. Obama the Brand claims change, while Obama the man picks a Washington insider as his running mate. Obama the Brand loves America, but many of Obama the man’s associates hate America. Obama the Brand is a post-racial candidate while Obama the man plays the race card at every turn, listened for 20 years to the racial teachings of Rev. Wright, and makes contributions exclusively to Trinity United Church of Christ, the NAACP and Care Africa. Obama the man and Obama the Brand are not one in the same. If elected Obama the man will make the decisions, not Obama the Brand." from New Mexico speech this weekend
