Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. – Barack Obama
I am the great and powerful Wizard of Oz.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
— the Wizard of Oz
I don’t know how much I believe poll data given their inaccuracy in years past — and it doesn’t help that the main stream media is soooooo Obama obsessed. But Real Clear politics reports a widening margin for Obama, here. Rassmussen (arguably the most reliable poll) has Obama ahead 52% to 45%.
I can’t personally intellectualize the shift. Thinking about it, I think this may be more of an emotional choice for people.
Obama is young
Obama is attractive
Obama says the things people want to hear
Obama presents himself as a champion for the American middle class
Americans want to show they’ve evolved and will elect a black American president
Obama is the great and powerful wizard!
But look at the men behind the curtain. Look at his life in politics. Look at the type of people with whom he associates. If these are his allies, will he really be a friend to you? Are your interests his interests? Are his values your values? Does he envision the same America that you do? Who are the we that he talks about in the opening quote?
The men behind the curtain:
Jeremiah Wright – Everyone has seen the videos of Reverend Wright spewing his vile rhetoric. If you missed it, here’s a sample; a sermon given at his church just days after the 9/11/2001 attacks:
The Reverend Michael Flegar, a catholic priest:
William Ayers, a co-worker, co-board member and neighbor of Obama’s oh, and domestic terrorist:
Acorn – a community organizing operation for whom Obama worked – by providing training and legal representation. Implicated in numerous cases of voter fraud and complicit in the current credit crisis:
Louis Farrakhan, Supreme Minister of the Nation of Islam as the National Representative of Elijah Muhammad:
INDOCTRINATION? The rising of a new Hitler Youth?
The Obama brainwashing – aka Stepford Children
The Obama Youth
Is Obama your idea of a messiah? Do you think he has the same ideas of America that most Americans do? If these are the sentiments of his friends, doesn’t it follow that he shares those feelings?
Why has Obama tried to stifle free speech with lawsuits and policy support (here)? Why is he asking lawmakers to join his “truth squad” designed to suppress free speech – and is that what you are expecting from your police force?
Are these the people Obama maintains we’ve been waiting for?
This man’s motives, associations and judgements are questionable. Isn’t that too big of a risk to take with your future?
