Early this year I predicted an Obama/Clinton ticket competing with a McCain/? ticket. I also predicted that as a losing proposition for John McCain because overall he isn’t that far removed from his Democrat rivals, with a noticeable exception being his stance on defense.
My how things have changed, and the outlook for a Republican president, albeit not a die-hard conservative Republican president, is looking better and better each day. I have learned a lot more about Sen. McCain and like most of it. He is more gutsy than I thought, less prone to be swayed on Iraq than I suspected, more of a pro-traditional family candidate and especially in the pro-life guy.
Somewhat on the sideline during our nation’s ObamaNation fascination tour, has been Hillary Clinton. Did Mrs. NoPersonality really think she had a fair shot against Mr. Obama? Or was she, and is she still, just staying in the game either hoping for or planning for a big Obama campaign crash? She claims to be done campaigning, but I don’t count her out of the running yet. Heck she may have just decided it would be smart to let the well financed Mr. Obama pay her bills before dropping the sand bag on his head. I don’t recall anyone ever referring to her as dumb, conniving, manipulative and scary? Yes. But dumb? No.
Which leaves me with the presumptuous presumptive Democratic Party nominee. Like with Senator McCain, I have learned more and more about Senator Obama over the last few months. Unlike Sen. McCain though, my opinion of Barack Obama has transitioned from a somewhat harmless but charismatic unknown, to a well connected and very dangerous person. Very dangerous with respect to his passion for the socialist/communist model and very dangerous from his apparent hatred of traditional American views. I’m not saying we should be afraid of Mr. Obama personally, but we should fear for our nation’s future when we look at the laundry list of his friends, aquintences, partners and those who are cheering him on towards victory. The sad part of this story is how so much of our nation is being duped with his Eddie Haskell charm.
Today, I was happy to find that the RNC is actively working to call Senator Barack “Eddie Haskell” Obama on all his bologna. MeetBarackObama.com is a site they have launched to introduce America to both the man and his agenda behind the smile. Here is a little sampler.
