Obama is all rhetoric with no substance
Cousin Vincent Blackwell has it all wrong, as usual. Being a "Yellow Dog Democrat," he merely repeats the Democratic talking points and the party line without thought.
My view of Barack Obama has not been "warped." I knew he was a Socialist with a harmful agenda for our country the first time I checked him out, when he first exposed himself. Most Americans are sensible enough to recognize the empty primrose promises that socialists and Marxists have been spewing since Marx and Engels were the rage of the elitists and the ignorant.
I will have to let others figure out what Vincent meant when he wrote: "Obama is the first candidate in recent memory who has attempted to to run as an American."
I am certain a lot of candidates will be surprised. That line should be put together with Mrs. Obama's line about her "first time being proud to be an American."
The rest of Vincent's letter attempted to make me an apologist for Bush and the Republicans. I have said many times that both major parties are bound for socialism with Democrats ahead by a nose.
Records show that Obama is our most liberal senator in his voting. He is not merely a liberal, he is a socialist, and his hidden agenda is to take from the productive citizens and give to the unproductive, for their votes.
His agenda is not hidden at all in many areas such as free health care from cradle to grave for all; tax-paid mortgages for those who can't budget; free college for all, etc. And how does he propose to pay for these and and a multitude of other give-aways? By disbanding our military, by raising taxes, by taking back tax-lowering acts already in place, by soaking estates, the elderly, capital gains and at least doubling the bureaucracy.
Obama is all rhetoric with no substance. It is a shame that the young man with so much talent is so misguided. It is also a shame that cousin Vincent just doesn't get it. It's not too late for both.
