Can Obama deliver?

From Prof. Ray Titus

The best thing that's happened to the Republicans is that they lost the White House. Brand Obama has over promised. World peace ain't any closer than before. Outsourcing will continue. There will be no pullout from Iraq. If there is one, the mess will be greater, worsening what's presently a state of reasonable calm. Troops for Afghanistan won't come easy. Its one thing to be a media built superstar at a rally in Germany, its another, when it comes to troops for Afghanistan, Angela won't be as forthcoming. The canard of 'global warming' will be hyped as always, but it won't in any way drastically alter present environmental policies.

The list is endless.

Brands gotta be careful with their claims and promises. The bigger the promise the greater the expectation. And if not delivered on, the greater the disappointment; there may be even a risk of consumer anger. And that's what I foresee for Brand Obama.

Republicans, sit tight and watch Brand Obama equity erode.

Obama is already disappointing folks. In Indiana. The folks he's disappointing are his campaign workers. What's he doing? Not paying them. And, when he is paying them, he's paying them half of what they expected.

Ha-ha. Told you.

That's the way all political campaigns are. You really want to get paid in a campaign, you have to have the checkbook. I'm sure McCain's workers are being stiffed too.

When I was a lowly freelance writer, I almost took a campaign brochure job. But, it struck me as kind of funny how they didn't care what I would charge. I looked into their rep with local vendors and -- sure enough -- they never paid anyone EVER.

If you work for a campaign, you have GOT to expect not to be paid -- even by the Lord Obama.
