Bono, Sting, Bob geldof, they all share a same passion to tell everyone how things should be done. This time Sting says President Barack Obama might be a divine answer to the world’s problems. Interviewed in New York on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, Sting stated that “in many ways, he’s sent from God, because the world’s a mess.” Sting said that he spent some time with Obama and “found him to be very genuine, very present, clearly super-smart, and exactly what we need in the world. I can’t think of anyone better qualified because of his background, his education, particularly in regard to Islam,” he said. Still, Sting acknowledged the president had a “difficult job” ahead of him. Sting also said he’s fascinated by American politics, Obama, and also by Obama’s opponents on the right. “It’s aggressive and violent and full of fear,” he said of the backlash against Obama. “They don’t want change, they want things to feel the same because they feel safe there.”He also expressed he is frustrated that “we seem to be living in a currency of medieval ideas. My hope is that we can start talking about real issues and not caring about whether God cares about your hemline or your color,” he said. “We are here to evolve as one family, and we can’t be separate anymore.”
