because i know how much it matters to you, it is now official: The One is our first hip president.
The One being all hip and stuff
forget strength of character, executive and administration experience or even courage under fire. it seems the people like the way The One walks & talks, his body language and expressions, his clothes and yes, his oh so hip attitude.
“During his first 100 days as president of the United States, Barack Obama revealed how different he is from all the white men who preceded him in the Oval Office, and the differences run deeper — in substance and style — than the color of his skin.
Barack Hussein Obama is the nation’s first hip president.
This, of course, is subject to debate. But watch him walk. Listen to him talk. See the body language, the expressions, the clothes. He’s got attitude, rhythm, a sense of humor, contemporary tastes.
This much is clear: Whether dealing with the Wall Street mess, shifting troops from Iraq to Afghanistan or fumbling to fill his Cabinet, Obama leans heavily on personal panache to push political policies. Truth be told, his style is rooted in something elusive and hard to define. Pure and simple, it’s hip.
Obama has this awareness that other presidents haven’t had. He’s white, and he’s black. He’s an elitist, and he’s regular folk. He’s not pinned down to a perspective.”
hey, and The One is so incredibly hip, teenagers are starting to use his name for slang greetings called ‘baracking’ such as:
kids who greet each other say: ‘what’s up, my obama?’ and if you sneeze in front of a hipster teen, they may respond with ‘barack you.’ but, the ultimate is The One-inspired teen peer pressure technique to correct bad behavior: ‘hey, barack’s in the house,’ which loosely translated means ‘knock it off.’
jfk was all hollywood glam-ish so he was cool to some i suppose. bill clinton did wear ray-ban’s when he played the sax but he was so. not. cool. but frankly, i don’t know what it is about democrat presidents with their low self esteem needing such superficial crutches to be liked by the masses. can someone tell me?
the one thing i DO know is that ‘hip’ is a FAD like the mullet or fanny packs. eventually, they just lose their hipness and simply become something you mock.
