Thoughts From A Texan Via "YouTube" ^ | August 24, 2008 | Joseph "Tex" Dozier

Posted on 08/24/2008 6:30:06 PM PDT by TexCon

Hey Y'all! Below you will find links to my interview with "National Review" political writer David Freddoso whose recent book, "The Case Against Barack Obama", is a must-read!


Much Love, TexCon

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Question and Answer Time Line: PART I *Introduction = 0:00-0:49

*Question 1 = 0:50-2:59 (How is your Anti-Obama Book different than all the rest and why did you write it?)

*Question 2 = 3:00-5:35 (Counter to Mr. Freddoso' claim that Obama is the most inexperienced politician to have received a major party nomination in 100 years; Mr. Freddoso's response.)

*Question 3 = 5:36-9:36 (What does Mr. Freddoso think about Obama's Chicago political roots; mentioning of Saddleback Forum claim?)

*Interjection = 9:37-10:06 (Mentioning of letter Obama sent to McCain during attempt at reform in Senate.)

PART II *Question 4 = 0:00-4:05 (Counter to Mr. Freddoso's claim that Obama could and should have worked for reform in Chicago; example of "Soldiers for Stroger"; Mr. Freddoso's response.)

*Question 5 = 4:06-5:49 (What does Mr. Freddoso mean when he says "Obama knocked off all his political opponents in his first campaign" and how does he justify that statement?)

*Interjection = 5:50-6:18 (Counter to Mr. Freddoso's previous answer based upon illegitimacy of Obama opponent's signatures; Mr. Freddoso's response.)

*Question 6 = 6:19-10:01 (Mr. Freddoso's thoughts on Obama's great rhetorical skill and keen use of it and Obama's long-held message of change; highlighting of 2004 Keynote Speech.)

*Interjection = 10:02-10:20 (Counter to Mr. Freddoso's previous claim that Obama would end the ban on partial-birth abortion; beginning of Mr. Freddoso's response; see Part III for rest.)

PART III *Interjection = 0:00-1:19 (Mr. Freddoso continuing his response on Obama's abortion stance.)

*Question 7 = 1:20-5:06 (Obama being more of a moderate hooking on hope that some have for a Democrat to spearhead social security reform; Mr. Freddoso's claim that Obama has shunned backing of moderate Democrats and his justification; mentioning of Obama taking down Anti-Iraq War speech and his "New Left" endorsement.)

*Question 8 = 5:07-10:36 (If Obama is not a wise choice because of his associations and past errors of judgment, then what about McCain's own past associations and errors in judgment from foreign policy gaffes to religious pandering? What purpose does Mr. Freddoso want his book to have since it encourages the reader not to vote for Obama but doesn't sell a vote for McCain? Mr. Freddoso's response including the need to shun the crazy claims that Obama doesn't love America or isn't a US citizen and why we should look at Obama's true record.)

Did you see where the U of Chicago ranked in the US News list vs. Dartmouth?

Thanks for your interviews. Very good glimpse inside inside Chicago politics. Thanks to David Freddoso.

Great reformer without having done any reform? C’mon he knocked out Clinton Inc.! /sarcasm (thanks Barack!)

Cotton candy? Can you say that? Isn’t that racist? :) /sarcasm

Thanks again to you TexCon and to David Freddoso.

Great job, Tex. I’m ordering David’s book. Below is a copy of an email I sent to my family and friends last night. I wish every voter in our country would see your videos and read David’s book!

This is from research that I did on the internet tonight. If you see fit, please share it with your conservative, moderate, and liberal friends alike. All Americans should weigh their vote carefully.

How well do we know Barack Obama? How much do we know about his past record in Chicago and Illinois politics, and rapid rise to become the Democrat nominee for the Presidency in 2008? Regardless of your politics, if you’d like to learn more, take about 30 minutes of your time, and listen to these interviews.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Three reviews of this book on Amazon:


After reading the book I realized it is the kind of writing that people either ferociously agree with its message or hate the author for undermining someone whose qualifications make him worthy of being elected president of the most powerful nation on Earth.

I am not going to agree with either side. All I wish to express as a former Cuban exile, is that Barack Obama and Fidel Castro share many personality traits, ie:

Both were abandoned by their fathers at an early age.

Both are charming, elocuent lawyers that say exactly what people want to hear at the right time and place.

One never led the nation to suspect he was a communist at heart, the other doesnt mention the word socialism when in reality this is exactly what his agenda stands for.

Neither Obama nor Fidel ever held a real job either in government or in private enterprise for they think of themselves as demigods unworthy of soiling their hands when their destiny is much larger than their own realities.

Both were virtually unknown until they began to use the word “change” as their main political motto.

Both have egos as tall as the twin towers, yet they manage to present themselves humbly, one in soiled military fatigues and the other sweating and with an undone tie.

Both have the unique ability to distort truth and lies as if they were the same.

Both have the ability to hypnotize the ignorant and fool the wishful thinker and to divide a nation in classes, (divide and you shall win) In Fidel’s case he divided the rich against the poor, the illiterate against the educated and the black against the white. In Obama’s case even if by omission, he’s de-facto dividing the races already.

Another resemblance between Obama and Fidel and one that shall never be forgotten is that the American media supported the “Twentieth Century Latin American Liberator” (Time Magazine) with the same degree of irresponsibility devoted to Barack Obama today.

And lastly I’ll use the words of Jorge Santayana to finish my case in point: “Those who can’t remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

And in the words of Sir Winston Churchill: “The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal distribution of blessings, the inherent vice of Socialism is the equal distribution of misery.


Signed: Andrew J. Rodriguez, Author of “Adios, Havana,” a memoir.


This is an intriguing book that shows a view of the Democratic Presidential candidate that no one wants to see. We have been so proud of our country for nominating a black American as the Democratic Presidential candidate, and we were so taken by this candidate’s good looks and charming ways. I think we all had hopes that he was a politician free of the dirty dealings that seem to have become part of the American political process. As the months have passed since his nomination, and as we’ve listened to what he has to say and NOT the way he says it, doubts have surfaced for many of us.

This book written by a Chicago resident who has seen at close hand how Mr. Obama gets things done politically, reveals the “real” Obama. If you believe that a person’s actions in the past predict to some extent, his actions in the future, then our country, already in trouble, could be in for unimaginable difficulty, if this man is elected.

This book isn’t a hatchet job written by some guy with an axe to grind. It’s an expose of a candidate with strong socialistic leanings, questionable political dealings, and frightening personal and political associations, as documented by someone who has experienced Mr. Obama more personally than most of us have.

I think this book fills in a lot of blanks in the sparse information we have about Mr. Obama. I agree that much of what this book reveals is shocking and most of it disappointing, but we need to know who this man really is. As Americans, we have the right and responsibility, particularly at this crucial time in the evolution of our country, to know who we are or are not, voting for. This book will give you a lot to think about while you are making that decision.

First please forgive my grammar as I am writing on my Kindle so commas will be missing. Now let me apologize to BO for calling him an empty suit this past year. And let me be clear I am not Republican. I am firmly indy. And I usually vote for Dems. But I never felt BO had the experience to be prez and backed Hillary. I am also a great admirer of McCain and his bipartisanship and campaign finance efforts.

When I started this book I expected to read about Muslim ties and Larry Sinclair. If you are looking for that you will not find it.

So why the apology? Because it is now clear to me that BO is no empty suit. He knows just how to manipulate words and people so that he is poised to be the president...ironically by building an image as a reformer when this book clearly shows he is the dirtiest of who never met an earmark he did not like and is as radical as they come. Funny since his opponent is the true reformer. The slum lords and Chicago Teachers Union...the latter even I did not know of after months of researching BO...will turn your stomach. No doubt...BO is one slick operator.

But as for Hope and Change? Those truly are just empty words...distractions if you avoid close examination of the real Barack Obama.

Even if you do not agree with all the author`s positions...and I do have to be deluded to read this book...with a plethora of footnotes...and not agree that he is fair. And that Obama is dangerous and dirty.

Great post!! Thank you—I’m passing your thoughts on. I’m glad you are living in America.

In 1956, while traveling to Bogota, Colombia, our plane landed in Camaguey. I’ll never forget the view of the man in a donkey cart on the dirt lane below as we came in for the landing. The plane pulled up to what I remember as a straw hut—but it probably wasn’t!

We were startled to see a soldier standing beside the entrance, holding a gun with a bandolier? slung across his chest. It was very intimidating and a very frightening sight for a 23 year old young woman who grew up in a small town.

Your wise observations need to be passed on to as many people as possible—I’m sending them to all my friends!

Thank you very much. The documented and footnoted revelations in David’s book are startling, much like your experience in Camaguey. This election is too important to stand idly on the sidelines. I appreciate you sharing this information with your friends!
