One can only hope

Excerpted from an editorial at Townhall on why Obama will lose the upcoming Presidential election.
The Snobbery: Never before has a candidate with so few accomplishments to his name looked so far down his nose at the American people.
The Phony Idealism: …the moment Obama captured the nomination, all of those precious ideals flew out the window and Obama started shifting his positions farther and faster than Hillary Clinton ever did.
The Anti-White Racism: This is not a man who looks kindly upon what he refers to as “typical white people.”
The Lack of Patriotism: Rather famously, Obama refused to hold his hand over his heart for the national anthem and publicly made a point of not wearing a flag pin — and then had the “audacity” to complain when people quite naturally questioned his patriotism…Obama replaced the American flag on his plane with his own symbol and made a point of running down his country and calling himself a “citizen of the world” while he was overseas.
His Liberalism: … he was ranked as the single most liberal senator in 2007 by National Journal, actually supported a complete ban on handgun sales, and wants to hand out 845 billion dollars to foreign nations as part of an effort to “elimin(ate) extreme poverty.”
His Changing Position On The War in Iraq: Although Obama is still promising a timeline, he is saying he could leave 50,000 troops in Iraq and that the withdrawal is “entirely conditions-based.”
His Inexperience: Obama has never served in the military, the House, or as a governor, was first elected to the Senate in 2004, and his battle with Hillary was the only tough campaign he has ever been in. In other words, if he’s elected, he would be one of the least worthy candidates ever to make it to the White House.
The Poor Judgment: This is a guy who stayed in a racist church and stuck by a bigoted reverend for 20 years, grotesquely leaked his Western Wall prayer to the press, and blew off a visit to see wounded troops while the whole world was watching him overseas.
He’s Gaffe Prone: …Obama makes dumber mistakes than George Bush, more mistakes than Dan Quayle, and that’s despite the fact that he spends far less time talking to the press than McCain. So, what’s his excuse for thinking that we have more than 57 states, claiming America’s “fallen heroes” were in the audience listening to him, and his claim that “‘10,000 people died’ in the Kansas tornadoes when the death toll was really only 12?”
His Fuzzy Platform: Obama’s positions on guns, the war in Iraq, taxes, FISA, and public financing, among other issues, have shifted faster than a cheetah chasing a greyhound through an obstacle course.
The editorial is titled “Obama’s Top Ten Flaws That Will Cost Him in November “. One can only hope…that the media, and more importantly the voters, will see his tremendous shortcomings too.
