Obama not ready for Presidency. Watch the You Tube post as Sen. Kirk Watson tries to support Obama.
Chris Matthews grills Sen. Kirk Watson on Obama’s accomplishments. Watson comes up empty. He says Obama offers the ability for America to be a leader in the world again. What? “Offers the ability”? Just because Obama can deliver a speech does not mean he is ready to lead this country. You can’t lead unless you’ve been tested. Based on what I know of Obama’s experience, he hasn’t lead or done much to have been tested. He did however, spend many years sitting in a pew inside Reverend Wright’s hate filled church. He did spend time with Bill Ayers, kicking off his political career in the guys living room. He did have many dinners at the home of pro Palestinian supporter Rashid Khalidi. He had Khalid Al-Mansour, a Black Muslim and Black Nationalist who was a “mentor” to the founders of the Black Panther party at the time the party was founded in the early 1960s, pay for his Harvard education. He did and does have a relationship with the vote fraud enterprise otherwise known as ACORN. He did lie about campaign finance, breaking his promise to accept federal funds for the general election and observe the federal spending limit of $84 million. And most importantly, Obama lied about running for the Presidency. When Obama was elected US Senator in 2004, he pledged to the voters of Illinois that he would not run for President in 2008. This is what Obama said on the subject in 2004:
“Look, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years.”
Obama gave a similar response to a question from a reporter that he dismissed as “silly”: “Guys, I’m a state senator. I was elected yesterday. I have never set foot in the U.S. Senate. I’ve never worked in Washington. And the notion that somehow I’m immediately going to start running for higher office, it just doesn’t make sense.”
I’d like to know what changed Obama’s mind. I’d like to know what the people of Illinois think about Obama, a guy that has basically only run a Presidential campaign while being Senator of their state. Has Obama really served them? No. He used the position as a stepping stone to get to the Presidency, his goal all along.
