    I was watching a Political Report program on a French TV channel whereby people from various parts of the world were asked what they think of  Obama and  amazingly the majority of the respondents (from Europe, Asia and Africa) are convinced that Obama is a "puppet" in that he doesn't seem to have any power unlike his predecessors Bush and Clinton.

    One person from North Africa said "Obama just wears the presidential name but he really doesn't run the show. It is clear that there is an iron fist behind him that dictates what he should do"

    So I'm just curious with what people in here think of Obama? do we agree with the others that he's a puppet or not?

          I tried searching for this large list of all the organizations that secretly "control" the world that I read a few days ago, but alas! It was not meant to be. lol

      I think (and in general I support Obama) that he's as much a puppet as any other president has been since, oh, Nixon probably.  All politicians in the US are controlled to some extent by the rich and by corporations - 1. since their public image depends on the media, which is controlled by advertising, and 2. their reelection campaigns depend on campaign contributions.

      The cool thing about Obama is that he raised a lot of money from small donors, and he mobilized a lot of individuals (rather than groups) to do his political organizing.  So I think he's slightly less beholden to corporate interests than Bush, who was blatantly on the side of the rich.

        Yeah, look at all those rich people in Africa he helped. I'll bet they all bought stock in Haliburton!

      Were do some of you people get your information from, It seems to me that a select few want to see Obama fail, do you not like him or is it a racial thing, I like Obama, he may not be perfect but he is better then Bush, you want to talk about a puppet, (Bush is a Big Business Puppet).

      Not really.
      I can't imagine why anyone would put up with BEING a puppet.  Seriously, wouldn't you fight tooth and nail to NOT be a puppet?  He has so much power at his disposal.....

      But I could be wrong.   Rumor of course has it that some secret organization really holds the reins of power not only in America but in the world.

      How is any average citizen to even know?  I'd love to be a "fly on the wall" in the White House or wherever the stuff goes down.

      Ooops strike that---Obama catchesssss flies with hissss bare handssss and kills 'em;  saw it on live tv! hahaha.  I'd much rather just have the transparent access that ALL American citizens SHOULD have, to know exactly what our elected/paid Officials are doing!

      no president runs the show, but they do have authority.
      some allow themselves to be played more than others, time will tell. if he's a puppet, yeah, who is pulling the string? 

      power, money, control.

      This is very interesting. I guess people realize that governments everywhere come under such huge pressure (a) from corporate interests and (b) from various interest groups, and that they don't have the power they appear to have.

    I'm  not at all sure he's a puppet.  With the exposure he's had almost from birth to "Govern Everybody; People Are Stupid" ideas, he'd almost have to come out the way he did--and everything he's done so far would appear to be consistent with having been indoctrinated to the point of becoming a true ideologue.

    Seems like he figures the American people will make dandy puppets, though.

    Not only is O a puppet, he is a well-trained and gifted actor.

    He is far more dangerous than Bush or Clinton, because his appeal is almost universal. He is "whatever you want him to be". He is a blank canvas upon which we can write our own hopes and aspirations. 

    Anyone who can say one thing then do the opposite and get away with it is obviously a gifted persuader. This is why he was given the role of President by the producers of the movie, and the owners of the USA Inc corporation.

    However, arguing about the merits of different "presidents" is futile, as USA Inc always controls both sides of the contest, which is precisely how they ensure that they always get their way.

    Try doing some research for yourselves via the Internet (while you still can . . it will be censored soon, already happened in UK), to find out what is really going on before its too late.

    All Governments are controlled by the people who control the Money Supply for the country.

    Like all presidents Obama was "groomed" and put into place to meet a specific agenda.

    It is very interesting the way in which American Politics are viewed from the "Outside".

      Whether that is true or not (whether there is truly a Bilderberger conspiracy or not), there is ABSOLUTELY ZERO DOUBT that corporate and financial interests IN GENERAL have far, far too much power. For example, 60 percent of the world's SEEDS are said to be controlled by five companies. And by "seeds" should be understood "food supply" and therefore "life as we know it on earth." And this is just one example.
