Just before Barack Obama was elected to the office of President of the United States he said something that always struck me as a bit odd, and I wasn’t the only one.
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” he shouted into a microphone to a roaring crowd.
The phrase was proclaimed at a campaign rally in Columbia, Missouri back in 2008. At the moment, no one really stopped to consider what Obama was saying. As far as they were concerned, the “hope and change” slogan they had been inundated with had fully sunk in, and they were looking at a future filled with nebulous promises of a better life.
