After US presidential election on Nov.4, seems like the most talk topics worldwide is BARACK OBAMA. But lately, the buzz start to sound a bit to the negative tone, which is FEAR. Here, in Switzerland, there were some friends of mine who started to come up with the expression of fear that Barack Obama will protect American interest too much and it will hurt the interest of the foreigners. They said he is , now, a totally different Barack Obama than the one they knew on the campaign trail.
Over protecting American's interest, is it bad or not? Well, it depends on how you look at this matter. For American people, it's a right thing to do. He is the president of America, it's American people who voted for him, so it's totally fair if he protected American's interest.
The problem is people worldwide was so passionate to support Barack Obama during the campaign trail even though they knew they could not vote for him. And now, once he elected as president, everyone thinks that Barack Obama should protect them too. Very obvious example is from President Karzai and President Olmert, both leaders already asked Barack Obama to put their country's problem as priority things to do on his Agenda once he takes over the office on January 20. Come on...his first priority of course, FIX THE ECONOMY in US SOIL...that's very important to remember...BARACK OBAMA FIRST PRIORTY IS TO FIX THE US's ECONOMY...not economy in other country. Face it, it will be ridiculous if Barack Obama helping other's economy to recover and let US's economy doomed.
