The Obama infatuation

I read this article some time ago, and discussions here of late brought it to mind. It is an interesting annalysis, and I thought I'd share...

"In human relationships, there is the flirtation stage, followed by what my grandparents called "courting" and, if that works out, marriage. For those who are co-habiting, that was once the order of things, before disorderly social conduct took over.

In presidential politics, the analogy also works. We have passed the flirtation stage with Barack Obama and now it is time for a serious background check before too many of us follow our hearts instead of our heads and enter into a bad "marriage."

That MoveOn.org and Sen. Edward Kennedy have endorsed Obama ought to be enough for any conservative — even moderate — to pause before heading toward the electoral altar. But Obama has offered more cause for alarm by heralding his left-wing economic philosophy in a recent interview with The New York Times.

Obama told the newspaper the top priority of the next president should be the creation of a more lasting and equitable prosperity than achieved under Presidents Bush and Clinton. Obama apparently missed the class that teaches government doesn't create prosperity; people do...

Apparently ol' Cal's NeoCon eyes failed to note that Obama didn't say that Government should be the generator of that lasting and equitable prosperity, just that the country should be heading toward that condition.

The people can, through the guidance of a good leader provide that foundation of lasting and equitable prosperity just as well as government. Of course the leader has to know what the concept of equitable really means. I believe that is what has been missing in leadership.

Of course now we have to pay off Bushie's $5T Spending Spree and all its interest so that prosperity thing might be down the road a bit.

I am audaciously infatuated in a hopeful, theatrically attractive way but without substance or experience or Islam. I am not a Muslim and my mother is white. So there, you silly kniggets and bigots!

I'd like another latte' please.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

Of course, President Bush is that leader--and we all know it!
