"Oust Obama Over Commanding Country Cause Character Critical!"

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

Editors Note:  The editorial has been approved by a super majority of  7-2 by the PS Editorial Board as quorum was met by 12:00 a.m. If we count the vote cast at 12:09 a.m., it would  be 8-2 and the vote cast by 9:44 a.m., it would be 9-2.

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Hussein Obama has a shady character to be leading the blessed United States of America. He is not fit to be Commander-in-Chief of America.

We believe Obama will do whatever it takes to become president even if it means selling his own friends when the opportunity is ripe and right. He did that to Rev. Wright after 20 years of attending his church when he realized Wright was not going to help his cause.

We also believe Obama cares more to improve his campaign electioneering with the American people than for our troops, especially the wounded troops who have fought to protect us from foes of Israel and America.

Obama had a wonderful opportunity to visit the wounded troops at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany and was planning on visiting them until he and his campaign were told by the Pentagon that no media can be present for the visit.

According to Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman, who was interviewed on FOX News, Obama had the same restrictions on him that anyone else would have had.

We believe Obama cared more for the restrictions than seeing those that are wounded. That could also explain why military veterans don’t trust or have a good opinion of Obama.

According to data from a Rasmussen Reports national survey of 3,000 likely voters who have served in the military, these voters favor Republican presidential candidate, John McCain over Obama by a whopping margin of 56% to 37% margin.

It does not surprise us and we expect Obama’s numbers to drop further because of the fallout of Obama’s actions towards wounded veterans.

According to Undersecretary of Defense David Chu, Obama would not have been able to address the media or make any campaign-related statements if he visited the wounded troops.

With no showcase of Obama being shown with wounded troops who put their life in arms way to protect us from radical Islamists, it must have dawned on him that he cannot show the American people falsely that he cares for the U.S. wounded troops because his lovers in the media would not be able to broadcast it.

Next thing we know the Obama campaign cancels the visit to the Ramstein Air Base. That is unthinkable and outrageous.

The Obama campaign wants us to believe they did it in the best interests of the wounded soldiers because they did not want it to be seen as a campaign ploy for Obama.

Please give us a break, for we were not born yesterday. Anything Obama has ever done during the primaries or this campaign season is to make him look good in the eyes of the public. It may have worked in Europe because many Europeans are jealous of what America stands for and who we are but the Europeans are not electing the president of the United States.

We hope it is patriotic Americans who love this country, the flag, and our troops who will elect the next president of the U.S. and not unpatriotic Americans who want America to become like Europe. We don’t need America to become Europe.

We believe the polls will show soon that many Americans will rethink of their support for Obama who has no principles and loved by the Europeans and terrorist groups such as Hamas, etc. Not all Europeans are haters of America but there are many and many terrorist groups are haters of America.

We believe Obama has attracted the crowds in a different time as Adolph Hitler did when he was in Berlin. How ironic that both Obama and Hitler attract great crowds, have excellent oratory skills to persuade, and have foes of Jews for friends!

Hitler was responsible for the destruction and Holocaust of 6 million Jews and we don’t know what kind of things Hussein will be responsible for if elected president especially since he has anti-Semitic friends as advisors and wanted to meet unconditionally with president Ahmadinejad of Iran who wants to wipe Israel and the Jews from the map.

When have you recently seen an American drawing crowds as Obama has drawn?

Americans don’t attract those crowds because they hate America's guts. There’s a problem with the response to Obama because they see Obama more like themselves and we should never elect a president based on what the world thinks of him/her but based on what will be good for America! Obama is not good for America!

Obama has shown us he is not principled. Regardless of Obama campaign’s lame excuses there would not have been anything inappropriate to visit wounded troops without the media. Without the media, it would not have been campaign electioneering anyway.

We believe Obama wanted it to be campaign related and when he was forbidden by the Pentagon to take staff and media, he decided to forgo the visit but definitely had time to go to the gym to play basketball, give speeches in Berlin, and also showcase his prayer to the world where the media would cover him.

According to a press release by the McCain campaign, Michael J. Durant, Chief Warrant Officer, who is now retired and had recovered at the Ramstein Base when he was injured, gave his thoughts on Obama’s decision not to visit the wounded troops:

"Over the last week, Barack Obama made time in his busy schedule to hold a rally with 200,000 Germans in Berlin, hold a press conference with French President Nicholas Sarkozy in Paris, and hold a solo press conference in front of 10 Downing Street in London. The Obama campaign had also scheduled a visit with wounded U.S. troops at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, but this stop was canceled after it became clear that campaign staff, and the traveling press corps, would not be allowed to accompany Senator Obama.”

"I've spent time at Ramstein recovering from wounds received in the service of my country, and I'm sure that Senator Obama could have made no better use of his time than to meet with our men and women in uniform there. That Barack Obama believes otherwise casts serious doubt on his judgment and calls into question his priorities."



This just shows whatever Obama has done it has been done for political points and to get as many voters to his side but the American people are much smarter than Barack Hussein Obama to see through his tactics.

What are priorities in a person’s life tell us a lot about that person’s own character many times. A person’s character determines where and what their priorities are. Based on the knowledge we know about Obama, his priorities and character are messed up. His character raises enormous questions whether he can be an effective Commander-in-Chief to lead the United States of America.

His failed visit to the wounded troops at the Ramstein Base is only one example of his flaw but there are many that he has flawed on just to get the support of each one of you.

What Obama did not believe in or want, he is all of a sudden for after being the presumptive Democratic nominee.

According to Dick Morris, a former Clinton advisor who wrote the book Fleeced, Obama has flip-flopped on many issues:

“After vowing to eschew private fundraising and take public financing, he has now refused public money.”

“Once he threatened to filibuster a bill to protect telephone companies from liability for their cooperation with national security wiretaps; now he has voted for the legislation.”

“Turning his back on a lifetime of support for gun control, he now recognizes a Second Amendment right to bear arms in the wake of the Supreme Court decision.”

“Formerly, he told the Israeli lobby that he favored an undivided Jerusalem. Now he says he didn’t mean it.”

“ From a 100 percent pro-choice position, he now has migrated to expressing doubts about allowing partial-birth abortions.”

“ For the first time, he now speaks highly of using church-based institutions to deliver public services to the poor.”

“ Having based his entire campaign on withdrawal from Iraq, he now pledges to consult with the military first.”

“ During the primary, he backed merit pay for teachers - but before the union a few weeks ago, he opposed it.”

“ After specifically saying in the primaries that he disagreed with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s (D-N.Y.) proposal to impose Social Security taxes on income over $200,000 and wanted to tax all income, he has now adopted the Clinton position.”

We believe they are not simple flip-flops but calculated decisions to get your vote not based on principle but hunger for power to make his radical friends who are foes of Israel happy, the Europeans happy, etc when he is elected president.

Can you really believe in a person like that?

We cannot and we ask you to join us in opposing Barack Hussein Obama for the presidency of the United States.

His views have changed to get him elected and we cannot entrust this country to Barack Hussein Obama who may go back to who he has always been siding with radical friends who are foes of Israel like Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Rev. Eric Lee, Louis Farrakhan, etc.

Especially, would you really want to vote for someone who has received the endorsement of Hamas, a terrorist organization?

We do not want him as our Commander-in-Chief and neither should you. Let us fight these 99 days to oppose Barack Hussein Obama from becoming the next president of the United States.

For those that talk about not judging the character of a person it is the duty of voters to judge the character of who they want representing them based on their priorities.

We believe John McCain
(http://www.youtube.com/johnmccain), will put the country first and has a character that has been tested. McCain is also so principled that he has taken so much heat from members of his own Republican party. He does not let party lines cloud what he believes in and what should be done unlike Barack Hussein Obama does.

"I vote yes, but perhaps it could give Obama a bit of credit? I think that it would be a more thoughtful argument if it didn't sound like we wanted to attack him completely, and point out only his bad points. I think both candidates have both good and bad qualities."
