The Emperor Has No Clothes

by Michael Reagan - March 6th, 2008 -

Here was Obama attacking the Clinton’s backing of the North American Free Trade Agreement and promising to junk the treaty until it was renegotiated while at the same time a top official of his campaign was telling the Canadians sotto voce that he really didn’t mean it -- it was all just campaign rhetoric.

It got even worse when Obama held a press conference and answered a mere eight questions, and when the pressure got too strong he turned his back on the media and walked away. If you want to provoke the media to get hot on your heels and dig deeper into your clouded background, that’s the way to do it.

As long as the media and the rest of us play in his sandbox, and on his terms, Barack Obama loves the playing field. As soon as the game moves out of his sandbox, it seems to unnerve him.

No two actions could have done more to expose the superficiality of this man's campaign. A question I have asked repeatedly (with little effect) is how egotistical is a man who seeks the Presidency with so little experience? How likely is it that someone that egotistical is what he appears?

His autobiography makes it clear his mother hated America and some of that attitude permeates Obama's views of our nation. His wife's comments give strong credence that belief is correct. The church he attends suggests he is not as post-racial as he claims. His failure to ever once take action on a tough bi-partisan effort mocks his claims to being a unifier, unless he means he wants to unify everyone behind his positions. What kind of unifier is that?

Barack Obama uses great rhetoric. However his socialist agenda would be a disaster for our nation. Does anyone remember Jimmy Carter? Carter was the last dedicated socialist who made it to the Presidency.
