Here's a further thought arising from my little video, "Shoes For Obama," seen in the post below.
Suppose a large number of people took up the suggestion to take off a shoe and hold it up high while Obama gave a speech. (Obviously, I'm talking about actual attendees; doing this while watching a televised speech would be silly.) The intention of the gesture would be to remind Obama of not just one broken campaign promise but of all
the broken promises. But how would the Secret Service react? One hopes that everyone would understand the shoe thing as a protest maneuver, not as a threat.
Come to think of it, has Obama kept any
major promises? Objectively speaking, what is the record? We need a non-snide, non-flippant answer.
