I always had my suspicions about this 'excellent speaker'. His personal history needed some filling in the blanks, badly. He was raised as a Muslim - maybe? What are his opinions and solutions to the issues that confront the US as the world's protector?
Well we know that he wants to take the states out of Iraq. So what? Every normal American wants it to end and get out of there ASAP. But exactly how and when is the issue. Furthermore to even attempt to state to the world that as of a certain future date, the states will walk away from Iraq would be one stupid move. Nothing like giving your enemies advance notice to help them plan their attacks.
His solution to deal with Islamo Terrorism is: "We must listen to their needs'.
Boy has he got that wrong!
For the rest of the issues he as usual stands on the fence.
But what really makes me sick, is his ongoing fiasco with his former mentor of 20 years, the not so honourable Reverend Wright.
Why are the media pun dents placating him so?
Here's a guy who went to church for 20 years, loved his pastor, considered him his mentor and equivalent to a close family member and even appointed him his spiritual advisor. Until very recently, the most negative comment he could muster for the reverend was that his comments were controversial.
Why did it take him over 20 years to finally realize that his mentor is really not that great a guy? After all, his mentor condemns America - Check out his 'God Damn America!' speech. The one where he claims that the US infected blacks with AIDS.
When initially pushed to comment on his pastor who was/is good friends with Louis Farrakhan (anti-white, anti-Semite, anti-US, anti-Israel, pro-radical Islam), his defense was that the Rev did many good things. His other laughable defense is that he never heard those speeches that contained inflammatory comments. Now he finally condemns him only because he was forced to.
Obama is either blatantly lying or he lacks judgement. I suspect it's a combination of both. In either case, it's bad news.
The one thing he does excel at, is being a politician.
If he does become the next US president, then unfortunately his buddy, Rev. Wright will be correct: 'God Damn America!'.
