Obama Tanking His Own Campaign

I am starting to believe that Barack Obama will, as the saying goes, "do himself in" (politically, that is) during the remaining months before the election. He might still win the Democratic nomination, but I can't see how such an inept, arrogant, totally green on the correct way to handle the War against terrorism candidate, who has had so many dealings with people of corrupt (or very questionable character) could ever win the presidency.

The man has been caught in so many lies, it's just unfathomable to me that people can't see this fact!

The following is just a short list of reasons why he should not be president.

1. His relationship with the anti-white, anti-semite racist - the "Rev." Wright. Sitting in a church pew for 20 years and listening to such racist rantings indicates to any rational person that Obama must have agreed with his "Rev," though now he denies it.

2. His connections with Wright and Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakan (for same reasons as above) add in the militant Islam problem, too.

3. His association with William Ayers.

4. His affiliation with Tony Resko.

5. His wife and her hateful attitude and rants against America.

6. Obama lied about his upbringing and Muslim roots that have become evident in his two books.

7. Obama's claim of being a Christian is questionable, at best, or an outright lie, at worst. What Christian do you know who claims that belief in Jesus Christ is not necessary for salvation?

8. His "typical white person" smug and arrogant attitude that he would go so far as to verbally throw his own grandma under the bus.

9. His latest put-down of middle Americans.

Here's an article about his latest faux pas.

Obama Draws Fire for Comments on Small Town America


Hillary Clinton and John McCain both ripped into Barack Obama Friday for reportedly saying residents of small-town America “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them” out of bitterness over lost jobs.

Obama made the original comments while speaking to a group of wealthy California donors in San Francisco over the weekend. The Huffington Post quotes him specifically singling out towns in Pennsylvania, where he’s trying to woo voters and overcome Clinton’s lead in the polls before the state’s April 22 primary.

“Our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there’s not evidence of that in their daily lives,” he said. “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not.

“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

“Pennsylvanians don’t need a president who looks down on them. They need a president who stands up for them, who fights for them,” Clinton said Friday afternoon at a campaign stop in Philadelphia. She said the Pennsylvanians she’s met aren’t bitter, but “resilient” and “positive.”

McCain adviser Steve Schmidt called Obama’s statement “remarkable” and “extremely revealing.”

“It shows an elitism and condescension towards hardworking Americans that is nothing short of breathtaking,” Schmidt said. “It is hard to imagine someone running for president of the United States who is more out of touch with average Americans.”

Schmidt also said it shows Obama views the people he’s trying to relate to with “contempt.”

Obama is so smug that he tried to re-direct what he said and blame it on Washington. But people are not that gullible. He really stepped into it this time!

Obama directly addressed the growing furor Friday at a campaign stop in Indiana. Many working-class people have lost jobs to overseas operations, lost their pensions, lost their health care and haven’t gotten any help from Democrats or Republicans, he said.

“And of course they’re bitter. Of course they’re frustrated,” Obama told a crowd of supporters. “You would be too — in fact many of you are, because the same thing has happened here in Indiana. … Nobody is thinking about you.”

He also said that this disillusionment with government’s inaction on economic issues makes people base their votes on other issues, such as guns, gay marriage and religion.

The response set off another round of complaints from the Clinton and McCain campaigns that Obama is out of touch with ordinary people.

People are starting to get a glimpse of the real Barack Obama now. Many do not like what they are hearing and learning about him.

Kirsten Powers (a Democrat) points out the fact that it is only the far left who would pass such comments off without an inkling of bitterness:

“It comes off very badly,” Democratic strategist Kirsten Powers said of Obama’s small-town America remarks. “They are things that I think in a liberal world sound totally normal, and outside of that world I don’t know that he appreciates how it sounds. And it just sounds very elitist, and it sounds like he’s looking down on people.”

I'm sure that I left some important things out about the real Barack Obama. No worries. Just get a copy of Whistleblower's latest news magazine:

Finally revealed: The secret life of Barack Obama
Is he America's political messiah – or a Manchurian candidate?

"This issue of Whistleblower is about what's at the heart of Barack Obama," said David Kupelian, managing editor of WND and Whistleblower. "Obama is a man who reflexively, instinctively, will side with what's wrong and harmful for America, and will oppose what's right and good and wholesome for America. It's uncanny. But this profoundly negative orientation is sugar-coated with a charismatic 'positive' persona and beguiling rhetoric."

I'm waiting for my copy to arrive in the mail!
