Obama’s vision


Blue Campaign

As the GOP race starts to kick off, I wanted to depict Obama’s campaign in a more cerebral style similar to that of John Coletrane’s classic album, Blue Train where there are complex chord structures and challenging themes.  Compare this to the GOP simplistic jingoism and you can see a distinct difference.  The only question is whether the voters in November will listen to Obama’s tune.

John Boehner

I like Speaker John Boehner, maybe not politically but emotionally and aesthetically.  He has a tough job as the Republican party is split between extremes and I don’t think anyone can do better to try to keep them in line.  I love his orange tone and big bright blue eyes.  I was inspired by the velvet masterpieces that show intense emotion and no one is more emotional in congress than Speaker Boehner.

McCain Economics

John McCain economics

John McCain is a great politician…which doesn’t always mean he’s good at economics. People claim Obama is no better with economic policies than McCain, but he managed to generate a record $200 million war chest. You have to go back to Bill Clinton as a President who pulled himself up by his own boot straps. Born poor in Arkansas, and with his mother struggling, Bill managed to get a pretty good education and worked his way up the ladder. Barack, in a similar fashion, has followed the same route. John McCain, god bless him, has swung from privileged vine to vine. He’s paid his dues no doubt serving our country and enduring incredible hardships, but when it comes to economics can he crunch the numbers and balance our budget like the average everyday citizen?
