Truth, Justice and the American Way has always been the creed of the fictional Man of Steel, but the Junior Senator from Illinois himself apparently has the superpower to convince millions of (well, lets not name call here) that he is saying something ..... without REALLY saying something.
Annointed early on by the broadcast media as "our guy", it is difficult to imagine him not sweeping right into the White House for some historic oohs and aahs for the next several years. Frankly the guy bothers me, and I don't really care who objects to my fit of nerves over his Muslim faith, during our declared War on Terror against some other Islamic muslims.
If Obama succeeds in becoming President, he is going to have to come down on one side of the Middle-Eastern Muslim community, either supporting the Arabic goons that have encouraged the Bush Administration to hit the radical elements within the region [on their behalf] and continuing on the ground in Afghanistan, Iraq and god-knows where else OR he is going to follow through on his promise to bring the troops home and leave those countries to fall back under the sway of the more radical elements - - - that haven't particularly gone away during the last few years of combat.
So, which way would a Muslim U.S. President lean? Neither Afghanistan or Iraq attacked us on 09/11/2001 and I seem to recall the tally from the identified hijackers being somewhere in the order of 14 out of 19 being from SAUDI ARABIA. And by the way, Osama bin Laden (the #1 poster boy for those very same Islamic extremists that Dubya is always going on about) is a Saudi Arabian, too.
But, we sure have paid the damn Saudi's alot of scratch for their oil since then. We do still have billions of available gallons of crude under our own soil - - - Don't we?
Why doesn't the Jr. Senator layout his plan to effectively redress this eight year fiasco and layoff of the "hope for change; but I'm not really sure how to accomplish that either" nonsense.
And before you get your panties in a bunch, Hillary's greed for the White House doesn't make her a good candidate, McCain sucks, to heck with the ones that dropped out of the race. Huckabee is a butt-monkey, the rest of the field [both of them] pretty much suck out loud, too.
I wish that Americans would at least have given Ron Paul a shot, taken the man at his word and let him try to get us the hell out of the rest of the worlds personal business, stop paying every nations bills (and for their defense) and maybe reformed all of the stuff that he said he would like to. You know when everybody tunes out the ONLY guy who is REALLY pushing a Constitutional agenda - - then we are all screwed by our own indifference.
Still, MAYBE Barack will stave off all of the horrors that are pending, and do something other than continuously blathering about change. Remember, none of these guys really changed any damn thing since they've been in office.
One can certainly . . . hope!
George W. Bush and his entire Cabinet perpetrated wholesale fraud on this nation at a level that decades ago would have been called by its true name . . . . treason. They can't leave office quickly enough, and I can't ever call myself a Republican again after what they've done to us.
