@HotAir “The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama”

Barack Obama inside out and up one side and down another.

A MUST READ! A MUST SHARE!

CLOSING THE DEAL
A Roadmap for Campaign 2008’s Homestretch

  • WHO ARE WE?
  • Allow us to put our cards on the table at the outset: We are two young conservative journalists—both in our 20s. Unlike many of our peers, we are not swept up in Obamamania and would prefer John McCain to win the election. We’ve teamed up with seasoned blogger extraordinaire, Ed Morrissey, whose careful and thoughtful pursuit of the truth—even when it benefits his political opponents—is respected across the blogosphere. In that spirit, we are not at all interested in perpetuating lies, rumors, and innuendo about Barack Obama. Promoting such information does America a disservice, allows Obama’s supporters to justifiably cry “smear,” and damages our own credibility.

    What follows is by no means comprehensive, but it does shed some much-needed light on a number of Obama’s positions, statements, and associations about which he has been less than honest. We’ve attempted to boil each issue down to a succinct explanation with an accompanying, brief video clip—often starring Barack Obama in his own words. Before pulling the lever for someone who hopes voters will ignore his paper-thin resume, unsavory associations, and hard-left voting record, each citizen has a duty to do his due diligence.

    In short, we hope this “closing argument” is compelling and clear, and we encourage you to share this essay with undecided or wavering family members, friends, and co-workers.

    THE CONTEXT

    […] As the saying goes, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Questions abound: Is this man prepared to be president? Does he hold mainstream values and policy preferences? Who has influenced his thinking, and where does he want to take the country? Has he been honest with the people from whom he seeks votes?

    Additionally, the Gun Control File which I snagged from a comment left on article.
    FILE: GUN CONTROL

    When the state legislature discovered that Wilmette had essentially charged DeMar for defending his home, several members moved a new law that essentially barred prosecution on handgun bans that arose from incidents of true self-defense.

    [Obama] voted against SB2165, which didn’t even go so far as to remove the Wilmette handgun ban, but only prevented enforcement in cases of real self-defense. It passed nonetheless, 41-16.

    Barack Obama must demonstrate executive experience, but he remains strangely silent about his eight years (1994-2002) as a director of the Joyce Foundation, a billion dollar tax-exempt organization. He has one obvious reason: during his time as director, Joyce Foundation spent millions creating and supporting anti-gun organizations.

    I knew Obama during the mid-1990s, when we were both at the University of Chicago Law School. Indeed, when I introduced myself to him, he said, “Oh, you are the gun guy.”

    I responded, “Yes, I guess so.” His response, as I recall it, was, “I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns.”

    When I said it might be fun sometime to talk about the question and his support of Chicago’s lawsuit against gunmakers, he simply grimaced and turned away, ending the conversation.

      You are right, Obama is not fit to be president. Neither is McCain, by my judgement.

      File: Bill of Rights – Both Barack Obama and John McCain supported FISA, thereby nullifying the 4th amendment. If I remember right the oath is to defend and uphold the constitution. What are either doing to do this?

      What are either doing to return the rule of law (i.e. habeas corpus, posse comitatus, 1st amendment and the 4th amendment)? As far as I can tell…nothing.

      This whole argument between conservative and liberal has become a false dichotomy where both sides join hads to ensure fascism survives and thrives.
