I find it extremely ironic that critics of Obama (from our side), pooh-poohed Obama's lack of experience. We mockingly compared it with the tried and tested military and government service of Senator John McCain, and even with the executive background of Governor Sarah Palin. He was Obama, the what? The Community Organizer (snicker, snicker, tee hee, tee hee).
Agreed. We do indeed have an inexperienced president-elect with past unseemly ties to Marxists, radicals, and folks with extreme liberal views -- but our number one charge was that "all" he has ever really done was to work as a "community organizer". And therein lies the irony: it was that precise ability -- to "organize" communities of voters -- that propelled this man into the highest office in the land. He "organized" groups that don't even agree with each other and convinced them to vote for him.
He "organized" by effectually doing what he does best -- in his own words: “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views,” from the book, The Audacity of Hope. Catholics aligned with abortionists, black Christians teamed up with the raunchiest of black entertainers, Muslims for Obama marched in step with Gay and Lesbian activists, Wall Street moguls held hands with union bosses, tax-and-spenders rallied with tax-cutters; even former Congressman J.C. Watts, a conservative Republican from Oklahoma, entertained thoughts of supporting this liberal, pro-abortion junior senator's bid for the presidency.
It seems that we all looked at this man, and found ourselves identifying with select pixels in the Barack Obama mosaic. There was something we all "liked" about this good talkin' guy -- the way one admires and works with the affable PTA president, or fund-raiser for the Rotary Club, or Chairperson of the Annual Bake Sale. Barack Obama. The consummate "communty organizer". He out-organized the Republicans --employing a slick team of political emissaries, effectively utilizing the Internet and 21st Century technology, garnering nearly a quarter of a billion dollars in campaign donations (what recession?), and "connecting" with an electorate wanting some kind of..."change". Yes, the Community Organizer -- the one with little experience, an embarrasingly thin resume, and the audacity to seek the highest post in the land -- beat us good.

These words came to mind: on an Obama win...
Democrats get their guy
Olberman, Matthews, MSNBC and the media get their guy
Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and homosexual activists get their guy
Planned Parenthood and abortionists get their guy
Hollywood gets its guy
Chavez, Castro, Hamas, and angry Palestinians get their guy
Wall Street execs get their guy
Blacks get their guy
Homeless people registering to vote for a cigarette and a coke get their guy
ACORN gets its guy
Rev. Wright gets his guy
Farrakhan and a lot of Muslims get their guy
Father Flager gets his guy
In fact, (according to polls) all of Europe get their guy
Who IS this guy?
"I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views."
"[M]y treatment of the issues is often partial and incomplete."
-The Audacity of Hope, by Barack Obama
I DON'T GET THIS GUY.

1 semester University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in journalism
Now, which team are you going to "hire" ?---------
WARNING TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO ARE PRO-OBAMA: I AM NOT, AND WHEN YOU SEND ME E-MAIL TO ENCOURAGE ME TO VOTE FOR THIS MAN, I FEEL THAT I MUST TELL YOU WHY I CANNOT VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA.
So, if you don't want a response, better not send me anything -- because I'm going to write back, maybe make you THINK, and that's something some people don't like to do when asked about WHY they are voting for Barack, what has he ever done, what's he going to DO....
IT WOULD BE AGAINST MY CONSCIENCE AS A CHRISTIAN TO VOTE FOR OBAMA. I SHARE THE VIEWS OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING'S NIECE, ALVEDA KING:
News Heading: Martin Luther King’s Niece Dislikes Barack Obama Over His Abortion Support, Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Not all black Americans like Barack Obama and one of his biggest critics is Dr. Alveda King, daughter of Martin Luther King’s younger brother. “Senator Obama’s answer to the ills of society, such as continued tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, are diametrically opposed to everything African Americans truly believe and an anathema to the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” she told Town Hall. King says Obama does a disservice to the black community and the nation as a while by advocating abortion yet promoting other human rights.“We can talk about poverty; we can talk about the war; we can talk about teen pregnancy; we can talk about incarceration. However, if we’re not allowed to live, we’ll never encounter those issues,” she says. King recalls her Uncle Martin saying, “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.” For Alveda King, abortion is a civil rights issue.“Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother,” she explains. “The mother decides his or her fate.”
“In the shadow of the famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech by my uncle in 1963, as Barack Obama makes his speech in 2008, how can the Dream survive if we murder the children?” asks Dr. King concerning the unborn. "Life was very precious to my uncle and life today is precious.” -http://www.lifenews.com/nb153.html
I WOULD NOT VOTE FOR A PRESIDENT WHO BELIEVES IN KILLING BABIES IN THE WOMB (EVEN UP THROUGH THE NINTH MONTH), HIGHER TAXES, LIBERAL JUDGES, AND SOMEONE WHO IS IN THE POCKET OF THE GAY LOBBY, RACIST-FOUNDED PLANNED PARENTHOOD (see blackgenocide.org) , WHO ALONG WITH HIS LOFTY "COLLEGE EDUCATION" IS FRIENDS WITH AND HAS WORKED EXTENSIVELY WITH AN AMERICAN LEFTIST TERRORIST (William Ayers) AND IS SCHOOLED IN THE WAYS OF SOCIALIST AND COMMUNIST MENTORS. That's Obama.
WHAT DOES A COLLEGE EDUCATION HAVE TO DO WITH CHARACTER, MORALITY, HONESTY, AND LEADERSHIP? LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE HE'S ASSOCIATED WITH WHO HELPED BRING ABOUT OUR MOST RECENT ECONOMIC DISASTER. ONE OF HIS ADVISORS WAS HEAD OF FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC (Franklin Raines) AND GOT AWAY WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS -- AND WILL PROBABLY BE INVESTIGATED SOON!
I ask you, How can Obama fix something from which he has taken thousands of dollars -- he's at the top for receiving money from Fannie and Freddie. Could you trust the judgment of someone who takes advice from the same people who created the mess??? Oh yeah...ALL THESE FREDDIE AND FANNIE PEOPLE HAVE COLLEGE DEGREES, TOO.
About education and presidents...WHAT ABOUT ABRAHAM LICOLN? Was he a great president? What was his educational background? There is a saying that says, "If you know how to read the written word you can learn anything and even become President of the United States." That is what Abraham Lincoln did. As an avid reader he read and studied law books, then practiced law in Illinois. He knew the law well and was elected to the Illinois State Legislature in 1834. He also served as a Member of U.S. House of Representatives, 1847-49.Abraham Lincoln was taught to read, write and 'cipher' (do math) by his step-mother, Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln. The total amount of education Lincoln had only amounted to about a year. -Wikipedia
HOW ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON? Some Presidents attended more than one institution. George Washington never attended college, but he did receive his surveyor's certificate from the College of William and Mary. -Wikipedia
AND TRUMAN? Truman was the only president who served after 1897 not to earn a college degree: -Wikipedia. So, my FOOs (Friends of Obama), here's another test for you: Who attended the so-called Christian church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a rabid anti-American, anti-white preacher of black liberation theology for 20 YEARS?
****Who has not supported the right-to-live of babies born alive after botched abortions, and has instead okayed they be left to die? You'll find the answer to this question if you watch this video (I dare you!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKj109ZST3g&feature=related
****Who has said he will make his presidency a "bully pulpit" for gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgendered rights? "As your President, I will use the bully pulpit to urge states to treat same-sex couples with full equality in their family and adoption laws," he wrote. "I personally believe that civil unions represent the best way to secure that equal treatment. But I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples -- whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union, or a civil marriage."
He once again said he backs the "complete repeal" of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a law passed in 1996 that gives states the option of not recognizing another state's "gay marriages." It also prohibits the federal government from not recognizing "gay marriage." Ever since it was passed homosexual activists have viewed it as a significant legal barrier to nationwide legalization of "gay marriage." http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1980043/posts. "While some say we should repeal only part of the law, I believe we should get rid of that statute altogether," he wrote. "Federal law should not discriminate in any way against gay and lesbian couples, which is precisely what DOMA does."
****Who has promised to raise taxes drastically? "Consequently, to say, as the campaign does say, that the candidate's tax plan is a tax cut on net -- and that it would limit taxes to 18.2% of GDP -- is grossly misleading. The Obama tax plan would sharply increase real taxes. It also would come nowhere near to paying for the massive increases in federal spending he has proposed, including the spending that is disguised in the form of refundable tax credits." -Wall Street Journal, go to http://www.wsj.com/article/SB121910303529751345.html?mod=most_emailed_day
****Who called the possible accidental pregnancy of his daughters as being "punished with a baby"? In his own words, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbZJYWjkAPo. So, babies are PUNISHMENT?
****Which college educated candidate did favors for, and got favors from (remember the house?), an indicted con man and lied about ever helping this crook? "As a state senator, Barack Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko's successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens. The deal included $855,000 in development fees for Rezko and his partner, Allison S. Davis, Obama's former boss, according to records from the project, which was four blocks outside Obama's state Senate district.Obama's letters, written nearly nine years ago, for the first time show the Democratic presidential hopeful did a political favor for Rezko -- a longtime friend, campaign fund-raiser and client of the law firm where Obama worked -- who was indicted last fall on federal charges that accuse him of demanding kickbacks from companies seeking state business under Gov. Blagojevich. The letters appear to contradict a statement last December from Obama, who told the Chicago Tribune that, in all the years he's known Rezko, "I've never done any favors for him.'' -Media Matters, and http://www.suntimes.com/news/politics/425305,CST-NWS-obama13.article
To many people, all this doesn't matter -- none of it. The man has never had a job outside of government or "community organizing". He's never run a business, and has spent most of his time in the U.S. Senate running for President. And why does he vote PRESENT so much and not take a stand YES or NO on issues?
All of this matters to me. When considering a candidate for the job as president, my choice is not the highly educated Barack Obama or his college-educated motor-mouth liberal partner, Joe Biden, but the tough, experienced and maverick team of McCain and Palin -- who are both pro-life.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. SAID: "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Hey, if you are an Obama supporter, at least THINK about what you're doing. He might be your color, but does he have the right character to be president?

HE brought up politics, asked me a few questions that I tried to dodge, like "Who are you voting for?" Sure enough, he was crazy about Obama, as are ALL of the black barbers that I use. This guy was busy flailing and pontificating about evil white people and why he wanted Obama to be the next president -- all the while banging my head with the clippers and constantly working the back of my neck, buzz buzz buzz, comb comb comb, buzz, buzz buzz, thump thump thump...my 12-minute haircut turned into a 30 minute ordeal while this guy was loudly preaching about why Obama was the best choice for black people. In the raging anger of a Rev. Jeremiah Wright, this barber preached that all white people should be killed. I began thinking that underneath that mild-mannered barber uniform my barber might be a terrorist! I better be quiet and let him rant; the clippers could be replaced by a razor and a hair cut could turn into a neck cut.
When he finally finished, I ended up with a much shorter haircut than I wanted and the back of my neck felt like leather. I paid him, even tipped him, and finally addressed the question that I had avoided answering while my hair was being cut, or should I say, while my head was being assaulted. He asked, "You still didn't tell me who you're voting for?" I answered, "I am voting for the man who doesn't believe in killing babies in the womb." He asked, "And who is that?" (As usual, when confronted with understanding the specific positions of their candidate, Obama supporters usually have no answer.) I told him, "I guess you'll just have to look it up." Again, he queried, "Who are you voting for?" I answered, "I am voting for the man who doesn't believe in partial-birth abortion, killing unborn babies even in the ninth month of pregnancy." He answered, "Who is that?" Again, I said, "I'll guess you'll just have to do a little research, huh?"
And I ducked my skinned head into my van and said, "Later, brother."

How often I hear, "You're black and you're NOT voting for Obama?" My answer is, "That's right, and here's why..." And that's when I feel like young Will Rogers of the old "Lost in Space" TV show -- you know, when the robot starts announcing: "Warning, Will Rogers!" As a black conservative, I realize that it's time to brace for a fight.
You see, I'm not going to vote for a man simply because we share the same skin color, especially when we differ so much in the "color" of our values and vision for America.
John McCain's vice-presidential pick, Mrs. Sarah Palin, is an American success story. She inspires me with her grit, determination, courage, and small-town values. But because she is a woman conservative (like the black conservative), the media and the Democrats will treat her like a pariah. Warning, Will Rogers! They will belittle, besmirch, and try to marginalize her. They will pursue their mean-spirited, dirt digging, politics of personal destruction to destroy her (and her family) and make her into something other than a capable, qualified, tough, first-rate leader. They will do this first because they believe that -- above all else, women should be free to destroy their babies in the womb. (Statistics now show that a larger percentage of black babies are being aborted than any other ethnic group; this should disturb us all! Apparently, Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger's dream of limiting the procreation of "inferior" races is coming true.) Anyone who dares to walk on their holy turf of unlimited abortion rights will be pilloried.
Secondly, they want to give government more power to make you sacrifice (pay more) to fulfill their skewed -- albeit, altruistic vision. They will sic their attack dogs of media sycophants and nasty, onerous left-wing bloggers on the McCain-Palin campaign. With their willing leftist voices and journalists in the media, it will seem like the Whole World is against the McCain-Palin ticket [Is she qualified? What about her pregnant daughter? How could she forsake her children and serve as VP? She's too cute. She's inexperienced, blah, blah, blah].
Black people, especially if you hold certain Christian values of kindness, fair-play, and honesty, watch and see how mean the people on your side will get over the next few days in an attempt to destroy all Obama opposition. You can already see it with the people on The View, MSNBC, CNN, Hollywood actors and directors, and R/B singers. (Did you read P. Diddy's idiotic, disconnected diatribe against McCain and Palin? P. Diddy: "There are no black people... in Alaska.”) And, apparently, Obama-loving Oprah is refusing to interview Sarah Palin on her show -- a program that typically spotlights outstanding, news-making women.
It's coming -- but black conservatives, women conservatives, young conservatives, old conservatives -- HOLD YOUR GROUND. Don't let them beat you down or smother your support for these two gifted American leaders. With McCain we have a genuine hero --tested in the crucible of war and years of service in the Senate. With Sarah Palin we have an accomplished, Real American governor. Both will provide the leadership that our country needs -- away from the destructive influence of unbridled Big Government liberalism.
I am a black conservative. My voice will be heard. I will not be ignored. Fellow conservatives: Stand Firm. Fight fairly. Defend right values. The warning is real.M.L. "Doc" Gibbs
Here's what he said (just Google "punished with a baby"): " 'This is a very difficult issue, and I understand sort of the passions on both sides of the issue.' Regarding his own daughters, he added, 'I have two precious daughters — they are miracles. But politicians must trust women to make the right decisions for themselves. [And, by the way, in Obama's world that means snuffing out a baby's life at anytime -- one to nine months, partial-birth or otherwise, or, if the baby survives the abortion, kill it AFTER that baby is born! Believe it.] This is an example where good people can disagree. The question then is, are there areas that we can agree to that everybody can get behind? We can all agree that we want to reduce teen pregnancies. We can all agree that we want to make sure that adoption is a viable option. Look, I got two daughters —
9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn't make sense to not give them information.' "
"I DON'T WANT THEM PUNISHED WITH A BABY."
PUNISHED WITH A BABY. Those words just burned into my mind, into my spirit, like a big rock dropped into the center of my heart. So an unintended pregnancy, the product of a couple of young people fooling around while Mom and Dad are out (say, campaigning) -- you know, having a "good time," is punishment in Obama Land, like the "punishment" of an STD, like a curse, huh? So which is it, Mr. Obama? Is a baby a punishment? Or a little miracle? Apparently, according to your logic, it all depends on the "choice" of the mother. Kid, you're whatever your Mom says you are -- an obstacle or a miracle.
Sounds a little bit like the arguments for slavery in the pre-Civil War days: a white plantation owner says if the hapless black baby boy is born in Alabama, he's a slave, less than human; yet, if he's born in the North, then he's free, equal as a man. It's all based on the prerogative of some other human being. But this flies in the face of the clear dictates of our founding documents, particularly, the Declaration of Independence, that ALL men are created equal...."Hmmmm, created equal? Unless we slave owners can somehow show that a black person is not a man, not really fully human. Ah ha! That's what we'll say. If he's not a man, then the Declaration doesn't apply to him! Case solved!"
Fast forward to our day. That same Declaration of Independence must somehow be argued as not applying to babies (humans) in the womb. Mothers -- and not the white slave owners -- now have the right to determine if the baby is a "man" or not -- if it is indeed human, based solely on whether she considers that little creature an Obamanation (a "punishment") or a precious baby human. She alone can say whether the kid lives or dies. On this July 5, 2008, a day after our country's historic Independence Day celebration, and ironically, a day after the birth date of one of Obama's miracles, allow me to quote from our country's Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
So everybody is entitled to LIFE -- except babies in the womb. Depending upon mom's choice, you're either a punishment or a gift. Mom determines whether you live or die. After all, Mom's "pursuit of happiness" trumps your life potential. Obama calls his unwanted potential grand babies "punishment," mistakes, bothersome encumbrances, and therefore it's perfectly fine to snuff out their innocent lives so that his daughters will have their own rights to "pursue happiness." As president, Barack Obama will use the bully pulpit of his office to keep the practice of abortion alive and well, so that these "babes of punishment" never have any unalienable Right to Life. These "mistakes" in the womb (or partially in the womb) do not deserve LIFE, and they will never have the opportunity to pursue "liberty" or "happiness," if Mom says so. White man says you're either slave or free. Mom says you either die or breathe. Tell Obama that your pregnancy's a punishment, and you have his blessing to kill it.
