Barack Hussein Obama

Who is this guy?

We know he’s a young guy, just 45 years old with only 2 years of federal government experience.  We know he’s a prodigy of the Chicago Political Machine.  We know he supports socialist government programs and wants to increase the federal governments rule over our lives.  We know he says he’s all about CHANGE, but what does that mean?

Maybe he’s talking about what will be left in your pocket … after YOU‘re done PAYing taxes for all his new, expensive socialist programs … nothing but CHANGE.

Harvard boy Obama started his speedy political climb with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).  Who is ACORN?  A large, but not well known activist organization that promotes a 1960s-style agenda of anti-capitalism, central planning, victimology, and government handouts.

ACORN grew out of the 1960s New Left group the National Welfare Rights Organization (NRWO). The aim of this group was to overburden the welfare system with so many clients that it would burst, resulting in a crisis that would force the end of America’s capitalist economy in favor of a more totalitarian socialist regime.

There is nothing mainstream about NRWO, ACORN or their agenda.

ACORN has taken a slightly different approach while maintaining the philosophy of NWRO.  Instead of attacking at the federal level, they’ve gone local.  They set up shop in the poorest communities where it’s easiest to garner votes and support with the smallest of handouts.  They engage in “in your face” confrontational tactics.  It will take an entire separate post to get into the sordid details.

Obama, with the help of ACORN and other radicals obtained huge government subsidies for private developers like Tony Rezko who was recently convicted on 16 counts of bribery, fraud, and extortion.

According to the Boston Globe, Obama’s Chicago housing projects provide a “Grim proving ground for Obama’s housing policy.

Grove Parc Plaza, one of the projects in which Obama directed large sums of taxpayer (that’s YOU) dollars, was seized by the federal government in 2006 after city inspectors found extensive problems.  Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser on his presidential campaign is CEO of Habitat Co., the company that managed Grove Parc Plaza.  Developer Allison Davis was involved in the creation of Grove Parc Plaza and used even more government subsidies to rehabilitate a North Side building cited by city inspectors as having chronic plumbing failures resulting in raw sewage spilling into the apartments.

Some renovation.

Davis was also a partner at Obama’s former law firm and a major fund-raiser in his US Senate campaign.  Six developers including Rezko, Jarrett, and Davis together have contributed more than $175,000 to Obama’s campaigns, and raised even hundreds of thousands more.  Rezko alone has raised over $200,000 for Obama.

The talking heads on television aren’t going to tell you about this stuff, they’re too busy tinkling down their legs.

So … who exactly is Barack Hussein Obama?

Just another dirty politician if you ask me.

Obama Dreams of Disarming the United States of America

“To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.” – George Washington

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” – George Washington

Obama disagrees with our first President of the United States, George Washington. Obama plans to disarm America!

Maybe Obama lives with the Care Bears in a country high in the clouds.  How else can you explain it?  These are not the statements of a serious adult who seeks the incredible responsibilities of being the President of the United States.  Nope.  These are the statements of a child who believes the Care Bears are as real as you and me.

Maybe Obama smoked a lot more weed than he has admitted.  Most likely, he was smokin’ weed before taping this video.  He had to be! How else can you explain such delusion?  A man who is serious about being the leader of the free world can’t be this disconnected from reality.

Obama not only lacks the experience it takes to be President, he also lacks the maturity to accept the world as it is, rather than what he wishes it could be.  Obama’s hallucinations make him DANGEROUS to both the American way of life, and the entire free world abroad.

I can only imagine the cheers and excitement of our enemies as they watch this video.  They’ve found a kindred spirit, and he’s a leading candidate for President to boot!

Obama lives in the fantasyland of “shoulda, woulda, coulda”…  or he desires the destruction of our great nation.  Either way, he has truly become the most dangerous man in the world!

“What, me worry?”

Today I bring you this excellent read by Thomas Sowell, who points out that character DOES matter.
Irrelevant Apologies by Thomas Sowellbillyfoxtrot
It is amazing how seriously the media are taking Senator Barack Obama’s latest statement about the latest racist rant from the pulpit of the church he has attended for 20 years. But neither that statement nor the apology for his rant by Father Michael Pfleger really matters, one way or the other. Nor does Senator Obama’s belated resignation from that church.

For any politician, what matters is not his election year rhetoric, or an election year resignation from a church, but the track record of that politician in the years before the election.

Yet so many people are so fascinated by Barack Obama’s rhetorical skills that they don’t care about his voting record in the U.S. Senate, in the Illinois state senate, the causes that he has chosen to promote over the years, or the candidate’s personal character and values, as revealed by his actions and associations.

Despite clever spin from Obama’s supporters about avoiding “guilt by association,” much more is involved than casual association with people like Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger.

In addition to giving $20,000 of his own money to Jeremiah Wright, as a state senator Obama directed $225,000 of the Illinois taxpayers’ money for programs run by Father Pfleger. In the U.S. Senate, Obama earmarked $100,000 in federal tax money for Father Pfleger’s work. Giving someone more than 300 grand is not just some tenuous, coincidental association.

Are Barack Obama’s views shown by what he says during an election year or by what he has been doing for decades before?

The complete contrast between Obama’s election year image as a healer of divisions and his whole career of promoting far-left grievance politics, in association with America-haters like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, are brushed aside by his supporters who talk about getting back to “the real issues.”

There is nothing more real than a man’s character and values. The track record of what he has actually done is far more real than anything he says, however elegantly he says it.
