Of course I only really focused on infrastructure in this post, but Obama’s overall big-picture and future-oriented thinking on these issues naturally emphasizes civic engagement among youth. You get the idea, with his Facebook/YouTube/MySpace use, that he’s serving as America’s dad. With a large younger audience listening intently, Obama is teaching us how to put America together again. He’s showing us the priorities this country has, and he’s investing his time so that when he is no longer around, we know what to do in order to keep this country safe and moving forward. He’s not an authoritarian parent; he’s one that empowers his family to work hard and do the right thing.
And this is why I have so much faith in our next President. This is not a blind faith, I will certainly call him out if I see his action as not enough or too much. But, Obama knows what he’s doing and he’s knows the correct way to go about doing things. Building America’s infrastructure will certainly do great things in making our economy stronger and fixing policy problems (energy, environment, transportation) that have not been dealt with much since the FDR.
