Will Obama succeed?

My answer to this question is "Yes, he will succeed." Not that he has to succeed but he simply will succeed and I will explain why I believe that he will succeed, what my reasons are for thinking this way. My intention with this question is to know how/what you think about this. So what do you think? Will Barack Obama succeed? And I will appreciate if you will please explain why you think/reason that way or believe that to be true.
Cemil:

He will succeed because he represents (the only) hope, the only way out and "up" for the world. Other so called world powers (EU/UK, Japan, Russia, China, ...) lack the leadership and have no direction or vision. Not that they lack the means or resources to create a future for their own and help others to build upon it but they thay defy change or show no will at all to do so in light of their archaic prosperity/wealth building systems which rely on stagnant canonical approaches, traditional customs. Only the United States has the power and the will to challenge what is at hand and make the best out of it in bringing about the better for all. No other nation has created value/worth for the mankind as much as the United States since the World War II - look around and tell me what percentage of the products and services you use today is of non-US origin or patent. From cellular to computers, software to movies, financial products to laser or kevlar are all US creations. ... will continue

Cemil:

Actually there is no othe country that has coined a term like "American Dream". There is no Japanese Dream, no Chinese Dream, no Russian Dream, no French Dream, no German Dream. There is only a patent American Dream. Americans dream and yet make their dreams come true thanks to the freedoms enjoyed in business, science, technology and anything that involves creative process. The US is the only country that attracts talent, taps and imports talent worldwide and turns them into productive and creative assets. Cheap labor influx from Mexico helps lower cost of production for many businesses providing a competitive edge against low cost rivals like China and India but the US could also institute a non-resident citizenship program allowing talented people living abroad to earn US citizenship status by working for US companies while living abroad but helping the US economy develop new businesses/products, improve efficency/effectivenes. Obama would be wise to tap that potential aggressively.

Cemil:

Obama is the world's most popular leader, a magnetic person, a pop idol, an iconic politician who is a true global brand the US has created in modern times. As brands have become a way of life for modern day consumers this helpos a lot for building the confidence in a product and hence selling. Obama sells everywhere even in the most adversary nations. He breeds hope for many an hope needs no reason for justification. That is why he is the new face of the American in the world. He will have to support this image by action of course and needs to address many issues at home or abroad but he will do so since that was the purpose/idea behind putting him at the helm, to sell the American prowess at home and abroad, or at least the image of it for the time being. He will in short time resolve almost all the crisis issues in the wordl boosting the confidence in the American pragmatism, prowess, ingenuity and finally resolve and commitment to excell not just survive or develop....will continue

Cemil:

Obama will soon become the brand of resurrection, reeminence, revival of wealth and prosperity, not just the hope of it. With other nations/countries lacking such a driving force behind, this will put the US up at the front of credibility thereby boosting its potential of tapping the wealth and the financial means/power elsewhere in the world which lately has been directionless, motionless and aimless. Obama will be able to attract those funds, and wealth and investments will once again change their course to the US helping refinance the growth the economies yearn desperately. The turnaround will not come easy or fast since we all have contributed a lot in destroying the precious trust and confidence in each other and in the common values we cherish. But it will come and Obama will succeed in building the trust and confidence in the wordl and hence the credibility our true businesses, honest corporations, decent governments and more important common folk deserve.

Swifty:

Well, I'm only going to give wonder boy 4 years to pull the rabbit out of the hat. :))

Svwhu:

And what are you going to do after four years Lorelei?

NDWind:

@insightful ...

If I may ... Lorelie ... and most others ... will do just fine (after 4 years).

Swifty:

Yes, NDWind is right Insightful,
I will be just fine no matter what he does. I'm ready for anything. Can you say the same?

Archilor:

I think it's not the question if he succeeds, the question is, "will we succeed"?
When a teacher tells you to study for a test tomorrow, he/she can help you, but the rest you have to do by yourself. Obama may help us in our decisions, but the "change" he talks about, we have to make ourselves.
The only thing i can say because I don't have enough knowledge on this matter is that i hope he will do good. I however can say, he believes in what he does, then again, Bush also probably believed in what he did. I hope he will make the right decisions, I hope we will finally open our eyes and really understand what "yes we can" means. We as a human race have to change, when we come to this stage, then we can "ask to help us input these changes. Unlike Bush, Obama gives people hope. I believe he will not take advantage of this situation and that he will realize his promises

P.S sorry if my english is a bit rusty, i really enjoy reading your questions and blogs. I hope to hear or read from you soon.

Cemil:

Hi Arman,
So good to see you here. I think your answer is the best and in fact it is excellent, and I will vote for your answer not that you are my favorite nephew but because at your young age your views reflect a deep wisdom and intellect that many old folk like me still lack despite rich/life long experience. And btw your English is much better than mine and your brilliant mind really makes me very proud. Welcome again my favorite nephew.
(PS everyone. Arman is my nephew. He is named after me: Arman Cemil)

NDWind:

Hello Arman ... nice to meet you! Your English is fine. Your uncle Cemil is a friend of mine.

NDWind:

... and ... I like your view on the subject ... thank you

Willow:

:-D I am voting this evening, and came across this answer. Nice to meet you! I hope that you participate on QnA on an even more regular basis... nice to hear another view :-)

Amazing guy:

Arman I found your answer thru a friend alert. I find it refreshing and optimistic yet realistic. It's nice to hear an opinion that is not divisive and negative. I've been following news on line much more intensely than ever before, and I find myself focused more and more on the internet discussion comments that people leave on those news releases. As usual I am disheartened by the media but more than anything I often feel hope draining as I read the senseless, angry, blame oriented, conspiracy claiming, and responsibility shirking comments. Rarely do I see people trying to unite, asking what WE can do as a nation, showing civility, embracing hope or even suspending doubt. As you state, Obama may be in the position to make or influence our decisions, but the change he talks about, we have to make ourselves. So simple, and so true. If people can not even be nice to strangers on a forum, until we learn,..how can we overcome our problems? Thank you.

Odysseus:

It really depends on your definition of "succeed"
He is a successor so he has succeeded.
If you mean will he do better than his predecessor.... can he really do any worse ?
If you mean... will he live up to our expectations ? .... well it would be impossible to keep us all happy but my opinion is that he will do ok.

Cemil:

thank you for your answer Odysseus

JemaH:

I think he will do great. He is a very smart man. Has the support of a strong woman...and the support of Millions of people around the planet. The US need him to suceed. If they do not help in that venture then they are just doing themselves harm.......

Cemil:

We all need to succeed. Thanks for your answer randy.

Soni:

President Obama has positioned himself to have every chance to succeed as President, just as he did when he was running for the position. Although no one knows for sure what the future holds for anyone, I'm betting on Obama.

Gray wolf:

You missed the memo. We people that support President Obama are not suppose to be practical people.

NDWind:

"We people that support President Obama are not suppose to be practical people"

Practical is not the only issue, here ... judgment is the more important issue ... more important: good judgment is the issue ... if you have none, git some (it's not too late).

Cemil:

than ks for your answer Vietnam Vet.

DUDE:

I think his success depends upon what his goals are? If his goal is to put the United States on a course to increasing socialization of our economy, health care, and greater government control then yes, I do think he will succeed. American's have lost the will to take responsibility for themselves and their community. I think "Yes We Can" means that we can demand that government take care of us from cradle to grave. I think that is the "Change We Can Believe In." We can make government responsible for our welfare and that is what we are being encouraged to do. Fundamentally you do not need God, Personal Responsibility, or self-reliance, you only need to put your faith and trust in the United States Government as your guide, protector and savior. And I honestly think we more than willing to give all our freedom for a little security,

BUD 28:

Operative word "little" security.

NDWind:

No ... he will not succeed.

And ... his "change that we can believe in" will be change that, we will discover, is not what we want.

The man is smart, clever, and cunning ... but when I see him, I see a snake.

I am seldom wrong in such character judgments.

But ... I do believe that America will succeed!

Sonnamae:

Very good answer NDWind

NDWind:

Thank you, rettag ...

The word "success" is about as well-defined as the word "change".

I'm just saying ....

Cemil:

Hi ND, my friend,
You know very well that I agree with you 100% on account of the change he had promised during his campaign and I do not think that most Americans will like the way the country will change in 4 or 8 years time (I have stated this many times before). But it will affect most Americans in an unwanted way.
As for 'his' success, I also agree with you that it will actually be the success of the people, the nation, the country, the United States as a whole. But that in itself will reflect upon him as his success too in the end since he is/will be the one carrying the banner as President in the eyes of the world and many Americans as well.
For the time being the country is in a low mood due to an 'artificial' economic crisis instigated by some strategic factors not so much tactical or policy related. America as a whole is much more stronger than any other nation in the world and is the same country it was before the crisis and it will be better once the crisis is over.

Cemil:

I also agree with you that he is smart, clever and extremely gifted in oratory skills, political strategy and tactical maneuvers. When it comes to policy level capacity, he uses the art of branding, image making well to portray a plausible substance. But all those count a lot in the minds of people since this millennia and the young generation is about images more so than the 60s or even the 80s when hard facts weighed in more in any decision making than soft fiction painted by media/images/hips. Those, he skillfully used to defuse a makeshift Hillary campaign, and both Republicans (some) and Clintons have helped him rise to power.

Career_dave:

he will be like any other president he will do good and will do bad.......there is no happy medium

Cemil:

Thanks for your answer puddingtang

ABA:

YES he will BUT at what I dono.

ABA:

could be he succeeds at proving God was right when he said trust no man??

Cemil:

Thanks for your answer unekus

Swifty:

I think he will initially with all the government jobs he intends to put out but they will fall way too short to succeed for a long time. It will be a short lived employment rate. No more 30 year jobs. Maybe 5 if lucky.
Succeed at what exactly anyway, that really covers a lot of areas of which some he may and others he may not succeed.

ABA:

great answer lorelej. you getting it.. have a good day.

Swifty:

Thanks U,
You have a great day too:)

Svwhu:

Obama is not responsable for the loss of 30 year jobs! NAFTA already took care of that.

Swifty:

Well. Insightful, I don't recall saying that Obama was responsible for the 20-30 year long jobs although; I did say he would not create any of them and those are the meat and potato jobs we need to keep this country going. His booster shot of 4-5 years worth of jobs, if lucky, is not going to cut it. I hope he comes up with a better plan that the one he has.

Cemil:

Well Lorelei business conditions are changing so fast that 30 year refrigerators, 10 year cars are now a mark of the past. Companies just can't bear the pressure of/for change when consumer demand is shifting so rapidly and the so called innovation is threatening even the most solid brands. So 30 year jobs being history is normal. As for the government size you are right it will grow not only in size but also in power as well and that will be the real test for keeping it in line and people in the government honest. Thank you for your answer.

Gray wolf:

My hopes is he will. President Obama has the intellect and the ability to bring us together as a country to tackle the problems our country now face.

Cemil:

His only personal aim from now on can be making the history and that is some responsibility and I do agree with you that he has the ability to motivate and energize people in making an honest attempt in solving problems and positioning for the future.

Smokin' Joe:

He will succeed at increasing the size of government, making more people dependent on government, weakening our military,destroying the entrepreneurial spirit, and bringing back partial birth abortion. I'd list more but I think you get the point. Success isn't always a good thing.

Svwhu:

Your are right in that, success isn't always a good thing. Just look at what success GWB had at ruining this country. At this point we can only hope that Obama will be successful at cleaning up his mess.

Aditya:

Good thing you are an optimist, Joe.

Smokin' Joe:

insightful, can you ever stick to the issue? Why is your defense of Obama ALWAYS an attack on Bush? Diversion maybe?

Smokin' Joe:

Michael, I'm just assuming Obama will keep his campaign promises. My concerns are based on his own words.

Svwhu:

I wasn't defending Obama. Just pointing how the facts and hypocrisy of your attitude.

Sonnamae:

Smokin'Joe,
You hit the nail on the head. Good answer !

Svwhu:

Yah, to bad he's the nail! I would hardly call his kind of negativity and dire predictions a good answer.

Cemil:

Thank you for your answer Smoking Joe, I think you are very right in highlighting the government's role in the economy. It will grow tremendously with vanishing private investment. In the past capital was more in the hands of the small business owners and entrepreneurs who create value, work and more important jobs, but since late 80s with the proliferation of the financial markets/products and the coupling advances in the information technology, the capital has concentrated in the hands of a few hundred thousand high networth individuals who basically do no real production themselves and direct funds to investments of quick yield that require less/no real value and hence less work, which means fewer jobs. It is better to have a hundred million investors diversifying investments and thus creating more value, work and jobs than having few hundred thousand investors concentrating funds and investments in markets of quick yield and cheap work/labor.

Alabama:

He has already succeeded. The question for me is, will America succeed with him at the helm?

Cemil:

Thank you for your answer Wonderer

No skinny:

He is the person that was planned and will succeed as planned and accomplish the goals and agenda already set in motion. I believe God has a purpose for all people on this earth and Obama is in the position he is in because that is part of his overall plan before Jesus Christ returns to remove his church from this world, he is setting the stage for the one world Government to come into play. Put everything together that is happening in the world and you can see it all coming together!!!

Cemil:

Thank you for your answer Native-American

Ricke124:

Nobody can answer that question, only if they think he can or can not. I always thought he could not, but I am keeping up with things and seems like he is changing the things he said in his campaign that are really important and I find my self agreeing with him. I admit I could have been some wrong about him. So I will now say I am beginning to think he can.

Smokin' Joe:

Were you not opposed to him because of the things he said he wanted to do? If that is the case, then why would you be pleased that he is doing them?

JemaH:

reverse psychology

Swifty:

He has moves closer to center since the campaign trail, that is a plus.
I'll give him that much so far.

Sonnamae:

Based on what each person wants him to do, he will succeed with some and others he will not.
He may get some things right and may get some things wrong.
But I do believe that he WILL NOT LIVE UP TO THE STANDARDS THAT PEOPLE HAVE PUT ON HIM. (MIRACLE WORKER)
So my answer is NO.

Cemil:

Dunrunnin:

yes
