Un petit point sur la politique américaine

Publié le par Dolce

Vu sur le blog de Madame a L'Ouest, un petit texte qu'elle avait repris d'une copine (c'est elle qui le dit, c'est pas moi).

Let Me See if I Have This Straight. I’m a little confused.
If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.” Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.
If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable. Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.
If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.
If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive and a heartbeat away from the presidency should a 72 year old man (who has had cancer 4 times) die.
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.
If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.
If your wife is a Harvard law graduate who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.
If your husband is nicknamed “First Dude”, no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
OK, much clearer now…

Et Jerome de ITU regarde egalement avec amusement l'equipe Mc Cain qui a refuse de participer au show televise, le meme ou il avait annonce sa candidature.

Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter l'actualite politique sur le blog, mais la, franchement, ca vaut son pesant de cacahouetes, on se croirait dans une cour de recreation...

Au fait, vous avez remarque la facon dont les candidats saluent la foule ? Mc Cain ouvre les doigts la main tendue et Obama roule les manches de la chemise et pointe du doigt...

Perfecta: les mots sont assez simples a comprendre malgre tout je trouve. Carambaole : la gestuelle en politique s'apprend, surtout en meeting. Obama veut insister sur le fait que c'est a VOUS la, dans le public, qu'il s'adresse alors que Mc Cain est plus generaliste aussi... moi je trouve que la main ecartee comme ca, ca fait "coucou pueril"... mais bon.Cat : encore un gd merci a Mme A l'Ouest qui a eu la bonne idee de le poster la premiere, alors.

J'ai eu un peur en constatant que ce texte était en anglais mais finalement j'ai tout compris (à peu près) et je trouve ça fort juste en tous cas vu de France...
