A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

No-bama, cont.

Posted by Godefroi on May 2, 2008

While searching for a particular quote (which to me is probably the strongest statement against supporting this man’s bid for President), I happened across a blog post that summed up nicely in one place many of the common apprehensions we have concerning the Senator’s judgment and character.

Here is the one I was looking for (H/T Denny):

“I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I’m the best possible senator on behalf of the people of Illinois.” and “I will serve out my full six-year term…I will not [run for President].”

His ultimate contradiction of that one assertion, in which he declares ‘unequivocally” that he will NOT run for President and will finish the job to which he was elected, should tell every American that Mr. Obama can not be trusted.  He either lied, or went back on his word, for no reason other than his own personal gain.  This is not Hope…it is cause for despair.  It is not Change…it is the worst of politics as usual.

The list of incisive questions is here.  

Also, check out this roundup of disingenuous comments Obama has made here (again, thanks to Denny).

CHARGE 1 – “The March on Selma got me born.”

EVIDENCE – Senator Obama was born August 4th, 1961. The march on Selma began March 7th, 1965. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2

COUNTER CLAIM – Senator Obama was talking about the general movement, not specifically about Selma.

REBUTTAL – Senator Obama was in Selma, Alabama, before a mostly AA crowd at the Brown Chapel AME Church on March 4th, 2007. He clearly stated “because some folks were willing to march across a bridge . . . they (his parents) got together, and Barack Obama, Jr. was born. So don’t tell me I don’t have a claim on Selma, Alabama!” Barack Hussein Obama was born on August 4, 1961. The first march on Selma, Alabama occurred on March 7, 1965.

CHARGE 2 – “My father was just a simple, impoverished goat herder.”

EVIDENCE – Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was a privileged, well educated youth, who’s [sic] tribal family owned and controlled all tribal land. SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2, SOURCE 3

COUNTER CLAIM – He was poor to start off with, he only became an educated and successful man later in life.

REBUTTAL – Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was privileged from the moment of his birth. Being born into the powerful tribe of the Luo, he was graced with an ‘upper class’ lifestyle. He later would go on to be ‘Big Man’ of the tribe and work as a Senior Economist in the Kenyan Government.


READ THE REST…and vote accordingly.
