Obama: to ruin this country

I saw that headline, courtesy of Google Alerts, and nearly lost my breakfast. The media's love affair with Democratic presidential candidate Barry Obama continues as well as its portrayal of him as modern day American messiah.

Think of the taxes, think of the regulation, think of the burden this man will attempt to "bestow" upon us. Imagine a country where traditional values are admonished.

Here's the likely agenda of a President Obama:

Appointments of activist judges whom, rather than applying a strict interpretation of the Constitution, will do their damnedest to implement their progressive agendas

A "green" agenda that further buries our economy. What our economy needs now is cheap energy more than anything. Look at what restricting our driving will do to tourism, restaurants, entertainment, etc. As the environmentalists despise all things "Big Oil," it's the citizenry that suffer.

Sullying the office of the President of the United States by welcoming our ideological enemies with welcome arms. As a liberal is wont to do, Obama believes that we can TALK to people like Ahmadinejad and Kim Jung Il, despite overtures from the latter two that would contradict any sort of notion.

A few notes from this article:

"No, it doesn't necessarily mean he will be a good President, or even that he will make a decisive break with the disastrous foreign policies that have turned half the world against the US. However, he remains a potent metaphor for all that is best in the American constitution - the stuff about it being self-evident that all men are created equal."

Oh yes, the aforementioned view that it is OUR fault (that being the Bush Administration) is almost laughable. People forget that Saddam was violating double-digit United Nations sanctions and that Al Qaeda was hitting American interests at will prior to George Bush taking office. But when our government decides to be proactive, we truly become the Great Satan, malevolent and imperialistic.

"
Yup, I know that women are not quite as equal as men. And for the black American underclass, it is equality of misery. But he has lived that contradiction. Barack Obama's own life experience is his best recommendation. He made a conscious decision to align himself with the black American dispossessed as a community activist in Chicago. His wife, Michelle, knows about being part of an underclass. His election would represent atonement for America's wars and for its capitulation to the politics of the super-rich. If the US can't come to its senses under Obama, it can't do it at all."

Another absolute joke here; Barry Obama doesn't represent poor Black American anymore than $400 haircut John Edwards represents the poor South. Obama has enjoyed the fruits of his riches from the cradle. He comes from money; he knows money. Furthermore, as a community activist, Barry Obama can share some of the blame for the subprime housing mess; it was "activists" like him who bullied lenders into handing out loans to poor people with bad credit on the premise that if they did not distribute said loans, they would be branded as racist.

You don't hear the mainstream media discussing that, do you?

Todd Anthony, he is my response to your ridiculous post.

"The media's love affair with Democratic presidential candidate Barry Obama continues as well as its portrayal of him as modern day American messiah."

Is this the same media that has told the public that Obama isn't black enough? the same media that discredits his work in the black community in Chicago? The paints him as an elitist because he has an Ivy League education? It's funny how the media (who you swear loves him) tried to run the "you can't vote for him, he's black remember?" stories at first, saw this strategy as ineffective. Now they, like the Republican party and Hilary Clinton, have changed their tune to try to say his amazing accomplishments and prolific oratory skills prohibit him from relating to the American people and being a good President.

"Imagine a country where traditional values are admonished." You mean the traditional values of white men running everything? The nerve of someone trying to undo 500 years of white male rule! If you really want to talk about values, let's talk about all the sex and violence we see on TV and the torture of people in secret prisons. And how our President lies about it, then gets caught, and condones the behavior. Where are those WMD? Oh yea, that was a lie too. Some values the Republicans have.

Barack didn't come from money. He cannot share any of the blame of the subprime housing crisis. The crisis resulted from institutional racism, predatory lending practices, and greedy Wall St. bankers using derivative structures to put the risk on someone else's balance sheet (yes I am an ex Wall St. banker so I know what happened). You are not branded a racist for not giving a loan to a black person, you are branded a racist for charging higher rates to people based on the color of their skin, which is what happens. Even whites with equally as bad credit scores get more favorable than blacks with comparable credit scores. And that is the racist act.

You're such an idiot. I hope people like you don't prevent a great candidate from being elected. And while you are running down Obama, what is so great about McCain (other than him keeping alive the tradition of white males running the world)?

Typical Lefist banter; when you don't agree with someone, it's best to either look down your elitist nose at the person to whom you disagree or to resort to name-calling. You chose BOTH routes. Bravo...

Let's start with your last paragraph first (regarding the President, secret prisons, etc.). That's TYPICAL leftist rhetoric, regurgitated by the Daily Kos, Huffington Post, etc that typify the otherwordly view you on the Left have of our enemies. IN other words, our "actions" (proactive thanks to your President Clinton) have kept this country, including you and your Leftist brethren that take those freedoms for granted.

Regarding Barack Obama...have you been watching the same news I have (i.e. CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, etc.)...this is the same media that has handled this "faux" candidate with kid gloves, not questioning his ties to communism, his ties to a racist church, to a terrorist (Bill Ayers)...GIVE ME A BREAK.

No, what prevents Barry Obama from being a good president is his naive view of the world, his inexperience, his progressive agenda, and despite his "change" them, he's been about as nonconciliatory as a public servant can get in his brief tenure in the Senate (See: LIBERAL VOTING RECORD)...the guy is a fraud.
