The Inspiration of Obama


From mainstream media commentators to General Colin Powell to rival John McCain – all give Barack Obama credit for “inspiring” people.

My own fascination brought me to take my youngest brother to Obama’s rally during the heat of the Democratic Primary when Obama stopped in Dallas. We waited for several hours to watch Obama speak for what seemed like 10 minutes.

Oddly enough, Dallas was the first stop that didn’t chant “Yes We Can.”

Being a political junkie myself, I wanted a rally sign. I set out to retrieve one. I found myself and an over weight woman being pressed against a brick wall with a volunteer screaming “you’re going to kill her” to the crowd that had pummeled us. Too little signs, too many fans.

I’ve always been both a skeptic and a fan of politicians. I admire their achievement, but if you’ve been to an actual rally or regularly watch cable news there is one consistent fact: they continually fall short of their glory.

This election has been one for the history books.

As a Republican operative, I hardly come to the table without bias but I do have a reputation for being fair. At times I’m hated by the left and the right. All that aside, I’ve been troubled by many actions taken by Obama’s adoring supporters.

Obama has friends in the media convinced that McCain, Governor Sarah Palin, and Republicans live myself are racists. His campaign barely had to do the challenging job of converting regular speeches into “racial undertones.” David Axlerod said it was so, and so it came to pass. Did these revisionists forget that race was the blame game during Hillary Clinton’s primary bid? Who was it that distributed the picture of him wearing “traditional Somalian” ware? Who called Obama’s bid for the White House a “fairy tale?”

Obama supporters have prejudice against old age, interrupted his rallies, stormed Secret Service during the GOP National Convention, vandalized public and private property, sent pseudo Anthrax to McCain‘s campaign offices, attacked a wounded veteran, done illegal inquires on citizens who dare question Obama, and a number of other things.

I know candidate’s aren’t entirely responsible for the actions of their supporters, however I have some concerns with Obama. We’ve long wondered about “Hope” and “Change.” This great orator has mobilized a base that believes in no singular agenda, has no clear political ideology, but chants under one man.

It’s remarkably similar to a movie I recall seeing as a child in the 90’s. This software company eliminates the competition by buying them out and when the opposition isn’t willing – they resort to murder. The CEO attempted to protect himself by having himself briefed on the general details and then telling his minions to “defy me.” It’s much like the Sith infamously saying, “do what must be done.”

I’m not equating Obama to a murderer or holding him entirely accountable for his supporter’s actions. I do believe that Obama mobilizes his base by any means necessary and that has proven dangerous. That kind of judgment does in fact scare me.

Obama has not inspired people to take personal responsibility or accomplish great feats unless you count caucusing for him.

    Now lets look an THINK America. Obama and Bidon has called this great NATION Black or White because there is no difference WE ARE ALL AMERICANS. They have called ALL AMERICANS Selfish , Unpatriotic , unless we vote for him.WRONG The first place your voice ether way is REAL AMERICAN. He has proven ties to both domestic and foreign terrorists. Has never served this nations armed forces. Has 90% tardiness record with his currant job as a Senator. The spread the wealth crap and it is crap.In a slow economy you DONT SPEND MORE AND YOU DONT RAISE TAXES. Lower taxes and less spending brings the dollar up it creates jobs. More jobs is more revenue , This also puts AMERICA Back on top in the World economy. The milatary will not follow a leader that has no sence of what VICTORY means to the COUNTRY. Dont let him lower your chance at having the AMERICAN DREAM.If you get the money from his welfare share the wealth plan then you become the one who then pays 50 % and you dont grow you become the back that HIS PARTY GETS RICH. So you never grow but the democrats get your money .WAKE UP WE ARE ONE NATION , We NEED A PROVEN LEADER THAT SEEs AMERICA , NOT DEMOCRATS NOT REPULICANS BUT AMERICANS. John McCain has crossed isle moretimes then Obama has been in the senate. A leader never uses guilt to get vote. I voted my belief not by party, I AM A AMERICAN AND YOU CANT USE GUILT TO CHANGE MY MIND. IT IS MY VOICE AND MY VOTE.
