Take The Barack Obama Test
BarackObamaTest.com ^

Posted on 09/20/2008 7:32:20 AM PDT by DogBarkTree

Does Obama really speak for you? Here's how it works: Answer each of he questions at the link. You score a point for each issue you agree with Obama and you lose a point for each issue you disagree. If you have a positive score, vote for Obama. If you have a negative score consider if his positions are what you want for America for the next 4 years.


TOPICS: Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: 2008; obama; obamabiden; quiz
This was an interesting test and worth the 5 minutes to complete. The results were very interesting because it not only revealed where I stood compared to Obama, it also showed the larger test results compared to Obama. My score showed I opposed Obama on 49 of 50 questions or 96% of the time. So I need to reconsider where I stand on the 4%

The problem is that the website immediately shows its hand as an anti-Obama site and thus turns away those who might otherwise have taken the test and had their eyes opened.

You DISAGREED with the Barack Obama position on 49 of the 51 test questions. This means you disagree with the Obama position 96% of the time. LOL

The US currently adds a tariff of 54 cents on each gallon of imported ethanol from countries like Brazil in an effort to protect American companies producing ethanol from corn. The tariff is passed on to the consumer in the form of higher fuel prices. Should this tariff on imported ethanol…

Shame that it doesn't mention that those gallons of ethanol are not just tariffed, but competing against a fifty cent a gallon subsidy for the production of corn based ethanol.

Gee - this says I don’t agree with Obama on most everything (I’ll need to go back and check my “agree” answers):

Hmmm....I also scored opposed to “The One” 96% of the time. I guess it’s true what they say, the even a blind squirrel can sometimes find an acorn. And, some of the questions didn’t offer me my preferred answer of choice.

I like that it shows at the end the results of the whole.
Obama is on the wrong side each time.

“You DISAGREED with the Barack Obama position on 50 of the 51 test questions. This means you disagree with the Obama position 99% of the time.”

I agreed with the proposition of increased deductions on tax returns. I am surprised he allegedly supports that.

I feel well-grounded now.

You DISAGREED with the Barack Obama position on 50 of the 51 test questions. This means you disagree with the Obama position 98% of the time.

The only one that I agree with Obama on:

2. Do you agree or disagree that Homeland Security should have to seek out a warrant in federal court in order to perform search and seizure on an American citizen suspected of being involved in terrorism?

I got 49 of 50 too. The question I messed up on was:

2. Currently, 36 states have laws that allow residents to qualify for a permit to carry a firearm if they pass a background check, if they take a firearms safety-training course, and if they pay a fee to cover administrative costs. Do you support or oppose such laws?

Is this the same one you messed up on?

This really is an amazing survey. It shows Obama disagrees with the American public most of the time on most of the issues. Yet he expects to be elected President??

One of the questions was, "In general, what should be more important to Americans in their daily life: Moral values or material concerns."
Obama feels it should be material concerns! So on his own site he's basically saying he's amoral. Great admission. But given his stance on partial birth murder, he is amoral so I guess this is no surprise.

I misread one question, so instead of 98% I should be 100% opposite of “The One” — and I notice he has less than 50% agreement with those who have taken the test.

I opposed him on all 51 questions, for a perfect score of 100% against Obama!

That makes my day (although I knew going in what it would be). I think I'll reward myself with another nice cup of coffee. :-)

Not sure where the “All Americans” data came from, but taken at face value, this just shows how beholden Obama is to the fringe.

This is a poorly designed survey.

For example,the question on withdrawing from Iraq cannot be answered appropriately. If, for example, in 12 months peace and liberty are established in Iraq, why would we need to keep troops there longer than 18 months? I stopped taking the quiz at that point.

This has very little to do with helping you determine if you should vote for Obama or not. First, it is a very biased questionaire, written in such a way to get you to agree with many points.

Secondly, and more strategically, it is a data gathering tool for the Obama campaign to help him develop specific plans for his high level vision that he so eloquently articulates, but hasn't a clue how to implement.

14. Barack Obama recently said, 'The first thing I'd do as president would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act,' This legislation would wipe out all state and federal abortion restrictions including the partial-birth abortion ban. Do you agree or disagree with Barack Obama's statement?

This is a bad question. I actually agree with the statement, i.e., that this is the first thing Obama would do as president. So, had I answered the question as posed, the test would have scored that as agreeing with Obama's position, though in fact I oppose it.

Disagreed w/ the Zero on 51 of 51 questions which is why even before this “test” I’ve been considering for the first time in my life volunteering for phone bank duty at my local GOP.

0bama is nothing more than a creepy Chicago Democrat thug.

I oppose BHO on 98% of the listed issues. The only issue where he and I don’t differ (and I had to think about this one) is favoring a warrant for search and seizure of a US citizen suspected of terrorist activities.

I agree with ZGuy (#2) that the website should appear more neutral. Its apparent purpose is to get pro-Obama people to understand just who and what they’re voting for if they go democRat this time, and someone who lands there and sees the pic of BHO torn in half would be turned off immediately.

What’s very interesting, and I didn’t expect, is that Obama is way way out of line with the majority of Americans on most of his policy positions. So why does he have even as many supporters as he does? Are these people just living in bizarro world that they don’t know what his plans are or they are just ignoring them? It’s really weird IMHO.

Many surveys have similar problems with various "do you believe in" questions, e.g. "do you believe in partial-birth abortion". I believe that it exists, and is reprehensible. So in that sense I "believe in" it.

Another common difficulty is with questions that assume certain consequences for things, e.g. "Should we increase the deficit by cutting taxes". No, we should increase revenue by cutting taxes; to avoid increasing the deficit, we must stop the Democrats from using the increased revenue to justify increased spending.

Go ahead and take the test, My! I opposed Obama on 50 out 51 for 98%. More importantly, other participants opposed him in majority or plurality numbers on every issue.
