Obama, the real man!

Updated on March 6, 2008

America's in possible trouble

A couple of weeks ago, when Michelle Obama said that for the first time in her adult life, she feels proud of America, it beyond doubt brought out who Barack Obama really is. Naturally, in America, the wife of a presidential candidate is entirely free to express opinions that are different from her husband’s. But in a situation expressing her views on something that is so crucial to someone’s love of their country, it is extremely bothersome to me to imagine that she would openly make such a remark which implies contempt for America unless she truly felt it collaborated with her husband’s overall feelings.

Just as influential, her statement joins sides with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his all out hate-America opinions. Wright has been Barack Obama’s minister, loyal friend, and structure for over twenty years. Less then a week after 9/11, Wright indicated that the terrorist attacks were a repercussion of violent American policies. In 2005, Wright alleged that the 9/11 attacks were in retaliation for racism in America. In his church magazine Trumpet, Wright wrote, “In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01,” and he continued with, “White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared’ as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.”

Also, Rev. Wright has been a pivotal advocate of Louis Farrakhan, who has repeatedly made hate-filled statements against America, white people, Jewish people and homosexuals. And late last year, Rev. Wright celebrated the Nation of Islam VIP for a lifetime achievement award, saying he “truly epitomizes greatness.”

Even up to this point, Obama has not separated himself from the majority of Rev. Wright’s declarations. In a proclamation apparently released to discuss the issue, Obama abandoned the point that his friend and minister had talked in admiration of Farrakhan and that Rev. Wright’s church was behind the award to the Nation of Islam leader. Then in a Newsmax article in mid-January, he deceitfully claimed he believed the magazine presented the award to Farrakhan for his attempts to rehabilitate ex-prisoners. The funny thing about that is that neither Rev. Wright’s praise about Farrakhan nor the article in the Trumpet even mentions ex-prisoners anywhere. So where did Obama come up with this idea?

Anyone who thinks that two of the most adjoining people to Obama could openly make anti-American assertions unless Obama also felt that way, are really kidding themselves.

So far in his campaign, Obama has confirmed to be nothing more than a stupendous and charismatic public speaker. He is someone who has been interpreting the declarations of those near to him and more influential in identifying what his actual mystique and program is.

In 17 years as a state Senator, only one bill that he has sponsored has actually become law, a bill to develop “relief, security, and democracy in the Democratic Republic of Congo.” Obama has also failed to vote on 17% of the votes in the State Senate. Obama passed on the voting for extending the Protect America Act, and put America at a huge risk when critical interception of terrorist activity and communications is needed. In August 2007, Obama voted in opposition to a measure that would have authorized the United States to listen to overseas communications of terrorists such as Osama bin Laden without needing to obtain a warrant first. If Obama’s rebellious opposition would have passed, Bin Laden would have the same rights that Americans do.

Lacking of any official achievements, Obama has renowned himself basically by being against any proposals that would protect American security, such as completing the mission in Iraq. If Obama pulls our troops from Iraq within the first year in office as he claims he is going to do if elected, the United States would become a firing table for Al-Qaida attacks.

Comparably, at a Wisconsin rally, John McCain’s wife Cindy countered Michelle Obama’s declaration by saying, “I have, and always will be, proud of my country.” After which Barack Obama told a radio interviewer that his wife did not say what people think she said. He then ensued to rewrite her comments, claiming that what she had actually meant in her comment was that she was encouraged by the “large numbers of people” who have gotten involved in the political process. Michelle Obama, then in agreement made a modification of her original statement.

In Milwaukee, Michelle Obama flat out said, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”

So what with America has been wrong up to this point in time? That America gave Michelle the good fortune to go to college at Princeton and Harvard Law School? That America gave Barack Obama the good fortune to study at Columbia University and Harvard Law School and be elected a United States senator who also happens to be earning more than a million dollars a year just from his book royalties?

Maybe it was that America prevented the Nazi’s in Germany from continuing to murder millions of Jewish people. Or maybe it’s the actuality that America has given Africa and other countries all over the world 15 billion dollars with 30 billion dollars more in the future to fight the spread of AIDS and HIV. How about the fact that of Americans classified by the United States Census Bureau as being poor, a little less then half of them own their own homes, More then three fourths of them have air conditioning, and three fourths of them own at least one vehicle? Or that we, as free Americans, can present our views freely without the trepidation of being arrested and thrown in jail, as you would be if you lived in Russia?

Michelle Obama is a lawyer and is entirely adept at expressing herself accurately. It is also a fact that she spoke from a written speech. So there was a lot of thought that went into it before it was actually presented. If you don’t want to believe or are just unwilling to believe that she meant what she said, and that Barack Obama isn’t a close friend to Rev. Jeremiah Wright as much as he actually is and that Obama doesn’t actually believe in what Rev. Wright said, are abstaining from reality.

For all of us who are thankful to be an American and everything that it exemplifies, the real Barack Obama is beginning to become apparent and it is not a pleasant outlook!

      Very nice article. I think this country is in big trouble if this guy gets elected. We are already going downhill in many arenas as it is. We don't need these racist and anti-American individuals leading us. I can't believe everyone is fooled by his charismatic speeches which contain little real substance. Furthermore, I think his being elected will result in worsening racial tension and hatred in this country. Also, it is somewhat paradoxical how individuals like Obama who hate the government so much want to give the government more control and push socialist agendas.
