Top 10 Reason Obama Shouldn’t Be President
I noticed yesterday at the American Thinker, Top 10 Reasons Obama Shouldn’t Be President, detailing a piece at National Review Online, 10 Concerns About Obama, written by William J. Bennett and Seth Leibsohn. Check it out.
Now, without looking at the article, I already have problems with Mr Obama. For instance, what does he mean by change? How does he define it? From what I have learned, Mr Obama wants to apply policies to our economy that were tired in 1930s and foreign policies that were used in 1970s. This change sounds a lot like a re-run. Pardon the TV jargon. But, this brings me back to my original question, what does he mean by change?
The American Thinker talks about items 1, 2, and 6. But, look at the 10 reasons mention in this NRO article.
- Barack Obama’s foreign policy is dangerous, naïve, and betrays a profound misreading of history.
- Barack Obama’s Iraq policy will hand al-Qaeda a victory and undercut our entire position in the Middle East, while at the same time put a huge source of oil in the hands of terrorists.
- Barack Obama has sent mixed, confusing, and inconsistent messages on his policy toward Israel.
- In the primary campaign, Barack Obama consistently campaigned against NAFTA, but has now changed his tune, as he has with other issues.
- Barack Obama’s judgment about personal and professional affiliations is more than troubling.
- Obama is simply out of step with how terrorists should be handled; he would turn back the clock on how we fight terrorism, using the failed strategy of the 1990s as opposed to the post-9/11 strategy that has kept us safe.
- Barack Obama’s economic policies would hurt the economy.
- Barack Obama opposes drilling on and offshore to reduce gas and oil prices.
- Barack Obama is to the left of Hillary Clinton and NARAL on the issue of life.
- Barack Obama is actually to the left of every member of the U.S. Senate.
I have already figured out that Mr Obama is on the far left of the Democratic Party. So, it is very difficult to vote for him. Especially, when he is so unclear about what he means by change. I agree with much of these reasons, but it will be ignored by the MSM. Mr Obama is suppose to be elected by his personality and how everyone will “feel” by electing him. Yes, just as Mr Clinton was the first black president, Mr Obama might be the first black white president. 😦
But for what it is worth, Mr McCain is not much better. Immigration and climate change are some issues I have problems with Mr McCain. It is like voting in a national Democratic primary.
