I came across a brilliant essay online a couple days ago that has successfully compiled some of the most important and often discussed arguments against Barack Obama. I’ve thought a couple times about compiling an essay of my own, but thanks to a bad case of the flu that just wouldn’t go away, I was never able to write one myself. Although this essay does leave out a few of my favorites, it does cover many, many important and essential elements that – in my opinion – every voter should know about. So for that reason, I would urge all of you to check out:
I’ve read absolutely everything on that page, watched all the videos, and absolutely everything on that website corresponds with my own personal research. They’ve done a brilliant job of linking to all their references, providing absolute evidence, and backing up each of their claims. Please, take the time to read and consider what they have to say. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Here we are. November 4th. V-Day. It’s time to vote people. I’m working on a final reminder and a final summation, but as I continue working on that, I thought I would share another reminder regarding the flip-flops and lies of Barack Obama. I’ve been talking to a close friend of mine over the past couple weeks. He’s one of the few friends of mine that I trusted in telling them about this website, I knew they would not attack me so personally as many of my friends and family have. When I told this particular friend about this site, his reaction was, “Fabulous! I don’t have the time to do the research myself, you tell me what you found!” That statement launched a big discussion that only just pretty much ended tonight. His final statement said, essentially, that he was concerned about two things – who amongst the two candidates could he trust to be the most honest, and who was the most concerned about justice and equality for everyone, even those outside our nation.
I’ve been thinking about those two questions all night, so when I came across this video, I knew I just had to post it as a reminder to all of us, whether you know who you’re voting for or are still undecided. Here are the outright lies uttered from the mouth of Barack Obama, just during this long, drawn out campaign process. Enjoy.
In this very tough, critical, and potentially dangerous time, don’t we want someone we have known, who we can trust? Do we want someone who has been allowed to massage his ridiculously small and calculated record with rhetoric, or do we want someone whose record is firm, concrete, and completely apparent? Even if we do not always agree with John McCain, we understand who he is, what he stands for. He can’t get around the facts, the history of his record, and – at least as far as I know – he hasn’t tried. John McCain is John McCain. Period. Can we say that about the political shape-shifter Obama, who will blow wherever the political wind takes him? A man who has said outright, in his own book, that he serves as a blank screen, upon which we project our own ideals, so that he may reflect them back at us to win our trust? I’ll say again, believing in a man like that is believing that a mirror will hold your reflection even after you have left the room. Does he believe what he reflects back at you? Does he believe the words that come out of his mouth, intended to appease you? We don’t know, we can’t know, because we don’t know who he is. Can we really trust such a man with the most powerful position in the world? Can we really afford to get to know him when he holds power over us? Do we even want to?
I will be hoping and, yes, even praying, that Barack Obama will not reach that power he so desires. I still have faith in the American people, that they will rely on that brilliant American common sense that has so beautifully guided us for so long, which we seem to have neglected in recent years. We need that common sense now more than ever. Those old school attitudes of trust, reliability, judging a man’s character by the company he keeps, by the steadfastness of his resolve, his willingness to work hard, and his commitment to character and integrity above all else.
Please, do your duty today and cast an educated vote. It is not only your right, it is your duty, but most importantly, it is your privilege and your honor to have a say in the leadership of our beloved nation. Take joy in that privilege! For how lucky are we that we get to participate in the history of this country. Vote!
Really? Seriously? And this is the man we’re supposed to elect as President? Sorry, but is he going to show up late to important peace negotiations?
Ugh. I know this is a departure from my usual posts, but this just bugs the crap out of me. We’re supposed to elect him based on only 143 days of experience in the Senate, and yet here we see that not only did he have the bad habit of mostly voting “present”, but he also shows up late all the time. Was he too busy appearing on Oprah, writing his third memoir, and having coffee with Rashid Khalidi? Was he perhaps taking an extra smoking break or two, or three, or four? I mean, this is his job! He gets paid well for it! Those are very, very important committee hearings!! Now he’s applying for the most important job in the world, and he’s tardy?!
Ugh, ugh, ugh. Again, sorry this isn’t a nice fact-based essay, but man, this just bugs me to no end. Plus I’ve been up all night again, I have the flu, I feel like crap, and thus am in a particularly bad mood. *sigh* I should be writing a post about his awful 30-minute infomercial, but I just can’t bring myself to handle that right now. I mean, holy freaking crap, can you imagine how much money that must have cost?! That’s a sure sign that he has raised way too much money and honestly, I can’t help but wonder where all of that’s coming from. We already know about the fraudulent donation registrations, but come on, that amount of money cannot be coming solely from individual people sending him money online. Not that kind of money.
*sigh* And of course, never mind the fact that he promised to accept public financing.
Heh, but one thing about it that does make me giggle, is that a friend of mine said that during part of the infomercial, a guy was interviewed who said he had been laid off his job at an auto plant, and he was talking about how times are so tough for him financially. Um, yet he took his family out to eat. It showed him paying the $26 bill, so it’s not even like Barack took them out to dinner. That’s the sort of guy my hard earned money is supposed to be redistributed to, so he and his family can eat out while he’s out of work? Sorry, that’s just kinda… stupid. But somehow funny. In a sad way. I dunno about you, but whenever my Dad was scared about losing his job, we didn’t even wait for him to get laid off before we stopped going out. Not only that, but we cut back our regular meals to cheaper, more basic food. Sorry, but the nice family outings to Bennigans kinda have to stop when you’re laid off. Do you have any idea how much basic food that $26 could have bought? His family could have been fed nicely for at least a week, if not more. Be smart with your money, people! Or is that not necessary when the government doles all that out for you?
Argh. Fevers make me cranky, sorry. I promise, I’ll get better and write a nice, long, fact-based essay for you next time. Until then, I think I’m gonna crash.
