I hate to be a conspiracy theorist but I will be anyways. I still feel to this day the only reason Obama had been "elected" was the US was in a tailspin. The world viewed the United States as a bully and that's putting it nicely. There was so much turmoil within the US it was heading towards a civil upheaval. We did still have a civil uprising but it didn't go to far. Would the Occupy Wall Street Movement have actually turned into something more then it was if McCain had been in power?
PS I am not racist but come on a white man who survived being a prisoner of war lost to a black man with questionable origins?
