Barack Obama’s Greek Temple at the DNC
28 August 2008
I keep hearing about the backdrop that Senator Obama selected for his speech tonight. It consists of several Greek columns.
It is no secret that I am not fond of Senator Obama’s proposed policies because they go against my ideals. On many conservative talk shows I have heard reference to these columns and suggestions that they came off of sets like Ben Hurr.
Knowing a little bit of history, I do know that today is the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” On one of the talk shows someone called in and suggested that these columns were suppose to mimic the Lincoln Memorial.
At that point I had yet to see the backdrop and did not think the idea quite as insane, although an expensive alternative to projecting the backdrop behind Senator Obama.
Then I got to see the pictures of the backdrop. Not only does it seem excessive, it could never mimic the Lincoln Memorial. Here are a couple of the links to pictures of the background. http://news.aol.com/?feature=152107 & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yQwufJ_JpA&eurl=http://www.michaelgraham.com/
Although I am not sure it is a “temple” per say, it is definitely not the Lincoln Memorial and appears to have minimal function. Personally I feel a presidential nominee should have some type of a patriotic background that reflects their connection with the US instead of an expensive backdrop that does not appear to serve any purpose.
