Wikileaks, Obama, and the Beautiful Sound of Silence

Update 12/11/10: Not so beautiful after all … Obama calls WikiLeaks “deplorable”


In my last post, I said that Wikileaks is “the final exam for Obama. And he’s going to fail it.”

Well, on second thought, perhaps for the gazillionth time in my almost 48 years, I was being a tad hasty. You see, the Wikileaks story has dominated world headlines for almost 2 weeks. What is Obama saying about it?

Nada. Zilch. Squat.

The silence is deafening. Everyone is chiming in. Just not the guy with the single most important job in the world.

I’m loving the silence. Given the howling shrieks coming from both Left and Right in America against Wikileaks and Julian Assange, I’m reading that silence as meaning what I believe rests in the heart of the big O.

What is that? Listen carefully to the man’s words at the start of the following hilarious, intelligent YouTube clip:

Wikileaks is only deplorable if it endangers anyone’s life. For example, if it gives terrorists information that can be used to kill many people.

But if it is just information that shows just how dysfunctional governments are, then this can only help in the long run.

Why are you trepidacious about America? The possibility of Palin become president? I can’t see that happening in a male dominated country. And I certainly can’t see America being that unintelligent as to want some reality star that has redneck views running the most powerful country in the world. No. This will never happen. However, I think that the 2013 election will be one of the most interesting elections in the history of the country.

Agreed re people dying directly because of Wikileaks disclosures.

Re America, Palin might win if the Millennial generation (born after 1991) stay home for the 2012 election. That generation put Obama into office. Something like 70% of them voted for him in 2008. And they came out in droves to the polls.

Obama betraying them will likely make them disinterested in politics. And with a low voter turnout, highly motivated groups can “steal” elections.
