This posting presents a video that was not created or endorsed by the official Barack Obama campaign organization. Rather, it’s an advertisement made in opposition to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign by a lone Obama supporter, distributed by YouTube. Some are calling this Obama video the best presidential campaign ad to appear so far.

Very Interesting.

A POWERFUL OBAMA POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT

UNFORMULATED EXPERIENCE

The political video posted here was not created or endorsed by the official Barack Obama campaign organization.  Rather, it’s an advertisement made in opposition to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign by a lone Obama supporter, distributed by YouTube.  Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic had this intriguing reaction to watching the video: “But everything it expresses about Clinton I feel.  I know it’s not an argument; it’s a feeling.  But the thought of her on my television screen for four years fills me with a dread I find hard to articulate.  With this ad, I don’t have to.”

We must create meaning for our own social and political lives, otherwise one will be ideologically imposed upon us.

Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic socialism, as I understand it.  It seems to me nonsense, in a period like our own, to think that one can avoid writing of such subjects. Everyone writes of them in one guise or another.  It is simply a question of which side one takes and what approach one follows.  And the more one is conscious of one’s political bias, the more chance one has of acting politically without sacrificing one’s aesthetic and intellectual integrity. ”  George Orwell, Why I Write, 1946.
