It might be a desperate bid to win over new parishioners, or to seem modern to young people unaware of his democratic postulates. Nevertheless, considering that you have to fork out thousands of euros to see the tiresome Al Gore (and his power points) or unfaithful former president Bill Clinton at any of their conferences, I am heartily in favour of President Obama going into rap and bringing his ideals to the people with a little music. Who knows, maybe when he finishes his term in the White House he will start up a music group with his wife Michelle, sort of like Sonny & Cher.
Opinión a favor del No por Jordi Berrocal
I understand Barack Obama trying to find a way to win over the youth (without a doubt, a crucial segment of his potential voters). Moreover, his way of transmitting his ideas on education as a sort of slow jam backed up by The Roots seems to me like a masterful communication strategy. Nevertheless, I think that it is nothing more than an anecdote within the context of the infinite capacity of Americans to feed show business, and that’s where it should stay. The idea of the president touring like Gil Scott-Heron seems to me to cross the line over into frivolity, making a good idea into a circus that would do more harm than good to his aspirations to win a second term in the White House. How would all of those people cheering for him now look if the next “president” that Jimmy Fallon invites on is Mitt Romney?
