Obama: "Change" Changes

change.jpgMaybe I missed something, but the “Change” poster behind Barack Obama seems to have, well, changed. (There’s that word again.) The words “We Can Believe In” have been added to the bottom, for the first time acknowledging, pace Orwell, that not all changes are equal (although some changes are more equal than others). Nazi Germany, for an example, was a change. So was Stalinism (although less of change from Leninism). In the I-Ching it is written: “Change/Opportunity.” Were they referring to car salesman… for whom change is indeed a big opportunity. So far Obama is doing a brilliant job of being vague about what “change” he is referring to. “We Can Believe In” is a masterpiece of obfuscation. He has some good writers.
