Skip to comments.The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama (A Must See Resource)!
Posted on 10/21/2008 10:14:32 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Allow us to put our cards on the table at the outset: We are two young conservative journalistsboth in our 20s. Unlike many of our peers, we are not swept up in Obamamania and would prefer John McCain to win the election. Weve teamed up with seasoned blogger extraordinaire, Ed Morrissey, whose careful and thoughtful pursuit of the trutheven when it benefits his political opponentsis respected across the blogosphere. In that spirit, we are not at all interested in perpetuating lies, rumors, and innuendo about Barack Obama. Promoting such information does America a disservice, allows Obamas supporters to justifiably cry smear, and damages our own credibility.
What follows is by no means comprehensive, but it does shed some much-needed light on a number of Obamas positions, statements, and associations about which he has been less than honest. Weve attempted to boil each issue down to a succinct explanation with an accompanying, brief video clipoften starring Barack Obama in his own words. Before pulling the lever for someone who hopes voters will ignore his paper-thin resume, unsavory associations, and hard-left voting record, each citizen has a duty to do his due diligence.
In short, we hope this closing argument is compelling and clear, and we encourage you to share this essay with undecided or wavering family members, friends, and co-workers.
If recent polls are to believed, freshman Senator Barack Obama has a better than average chance of becoming Americas 44th President, the Commander-in-Chief of the planets most powerful military, and the proverbial leader of the free world.

Thanks for the post. I’ll send this to all my friends.
Everyone please send this to everybody you know.
GG: Whos Jesus to you?
OBAMA: Right. Jesus is a historical figure for me, and hes also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And hes also a wonderful teacher. I think its important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.
Obama: "Theres the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people havent embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they're going to hell."
GG: You dont believe that?
OBAMA: I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I cant imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. Thats just not part of my religious makeup.
GG: What is sin?
OBAMA: Being out of alignment with my values.
And separately (I posted the link to the following quote in a post to that thread):
In his 2006 book The Audacity of Hope Obama wrote, I was not raised in a religious household... My mother's own experiences... only reinforced this inherited skepticism. Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones... And yet for all her professed secularism, my mother was in many ways the most spiritually awakened person that I've ever known. Religion for her was just one of the many ways and not necessarily the best way that man attempted to control the unknowable and understand the deeper truths about our lives, Obama wrote.(Wikipedia quotes from his autobiography)
Indonesia has the world's largest Muslim population, but Obamas household was not religious. "My mother, whose parents were nonpracticing Baptists and Methodists, was one of the most spiritual souls I ever knew," Obama said in a 2007 speech. "But she had a healthy skepticism of religion as an institution. And as a consequence, so did I."(Time Magazine)
Done! With instructions for further forwarding!!
EXCELLENT post Free Thinker!!
High Noon in Hawaii: Barack Obama and Andy Martin collide in the Aloha State
Chicago crusader Andy Martin stands on the verge of taking down the Obama campaign. Martin says Obama is using his grandmother as a pretext, and that Obama really fears the secret truths about him that are about to be disclosed.
(What’s up with that? Obama IS in Hawaii, donchaknow!)
You have nailed it!
Good aricle. So is this one http://www.freewebs.com/politicaljingle/blog.htm?blogentryid=4077897
BUMP for all you need to know about Obama.
MKH and Guy put a lot of work into this. Spread it around, it is the best resource on, well, all the issues, I’ve seen.
This post is great! Here is a comprehensive review of Obamas non-record which makes for a link-rich companion piece... Barack Obama: The Undistinguished Gentleman http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=12526
