A new era for Japan? How about post Olympic recession and more of LDP corruption? Sounds like it will only be the same for Japan.

A "new era"?

What is he talking about?

"Wanna look good, wanna look smart, wanna look great".

All this talking reminds me of the old Romans, you know: "bread and games".

"This will bring all the people of Japan together to walk forward together into a new age,"

Yeah, until the bodies start falling from the heat. Then it'll be one massive game of finger pointing and deflection. Meanwhile, the people Abe milked -- the victims of the March 11th disaster -- still see many of their own living in shelters while Abe CONTINUES to use them for his personal political points.

New era? It is already the most in debt country (debt to GDP ratio: 235%) by a long shot. It will still be that 10 years from now but maybe he is going for a galaxy record in terms of owed money?

Japan's Abe Govt emphasizes Olympics as like "Bread and Circuses" to distract public eyes from their political scandal or many domestic issue.

Their politics only pretend to do something.
