President Barack Hussein Obama, ...

... his wise politics and his opponents
It is a distinguishing characteristic of many human beings of Earth that they very quickly change their opinions and standpoints according to the inner or outer circumstances. Due to a lack of conscious selfcontrol and self-mastery, they succumb to very strong feeling-vacillations which lead to first abandoning themselves to a strong enthusiasm and fit of excitement concerning an event, a person or a project, whereby after some time these then abate and give room to feelings such as suspicion, hate, disappointment, frustration, vexation, etc. towards the former source of excitement.
The unsteadiness, instability, and susceptibility to vacillations of the world of feelings and world of thoughts of many human beings of Earth are undoubtedly the cause of great individual and societal crisis-situations of political, economic and social kinds on our earth, which, however, could be prevented or at least contained if human beings would learn to control and equal out, i.e. to direct onto neutral-positive tracks, their own thoughts and feelings as well as emotional outbursts. The importance of this control- and equalling out-process of one's own world of thoughts and world of feelings, which leads away from a strong polarisation and towards a neutral-positive condition of the psyche and of the consciousness, becomes clearly apparent when one considers that a society, a country and – in the end – the entire humanity of Earth is made up of the sum of the individual human beings of Earth and that for this reason a present and future reality is nothing other than the product and result of the human beings' intentions, bearings, proposed deeds, decisions and wishes of a conscious or unconscious kind that are thought and felt as well as partially put into action.
In democratic countries, a president and head of government is directly or indirectly elected by the people, but very often human beings vote on the basis of feeling-related conditions, moods and stirrings, i.e. on the basis of sympathy or antipathy, which a candidate conveys through his or her rhetoric, gestures and his or her appearance, while the programs as well as the ideas, contents and motives of his or her politics are hardly paid attention to.
As the government-candidates are for the most part conscious of how easily human beings are influenced, they attempt to impress their voters through targeted image strategies and media appearances and to appear as sympathetic and radiant as possible to them, in order to thereby achieve their consensus. Everything possible is done to have an effect on the voter's vacillating world of feelings. The candidate who masters this art of trickery the best is normally elected to president; but then he or she must live up to these artificially produced sympathies, expectations and wishes of the voters which is usually very difficult. So politicians are able, through media-manipulations and exciting promises and deliberate stagings, which target the creation of enthusiasm and euphoria or also anxiety and fear, to bring entire masses of human beings on their side as well as to also give a false picture of themselves and their politics. Thus, it can for example be feigned that they campaign for peace, prosperity, and inner security and defence of the country against external threats and dangers even if this does not correspond to the actual facts and is a pure illusion. The voters, which are led around by the nose through targeted techniques of opinion manipulation, are thus, on account of constant bombardments through false news, tendentious messages as well as through hammering political propaganda, no longer capable of separating the fiction and the shine from the true reality and of discovering the deception that they have fallen victim to.
