Barack Obama Leaves Trinity

So Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama are leaving
their church, the Trinity United Church of Christ. I ask: What is the point of
leaving now?

Someone should have told Barack Obama that this is not
something that he can just walk away from. You can not erase the past Obama
buddy, I’m sorry to break the news to you. You’re going to have to live with
it. As much as you and your followers don’t like the idea of having to deal
with the consequences of your own personal actions; I know… It’s a hard
concept to wrap your head around.

Thankfully I have little doubt that the vast majority of my
fellow Americans realize the very same things that I do; as such there is no
way that Barack Obama will win the presidency; no matter whom he disowns.
Seriously, who’s next Obama, your wife Michelle perhaps?

This is nothing more than yet another calculated move made
by Barack Obama for his own personal gain. First he didn’t want to disown his
mentor and pastor, Jeremiah Wright; he then hypocritically does exactly what he
said he would not and could not do, but only after Jeremiah Wright made him
look bad in public.

Only after coming to realize, or more than likely being
told, that disowning Jeremiah Wright was the best decision for his presidential
campaign did Barack Obama do so. Only when he realized that there was more to
gain on a personal level by disowning him than by keeping him around did Barack
Obama do so.

Only after the polls and his handlers told him that leaving
his church would be beneficial did Barack Obama so do. That is hypocritical and
cowardly. Stand up for what you truly believe in Barack; you can’t sit in a
“church” for over 20 years listening to hate spew forth from the alter and not
believe at least some of is, can you Mr. Obama?

Of course you can’t. It’s clear to everyone that actually
wants to open their eyes and look at the situation logically and without
political prejudice, such as me, that Barack Obama is nothing more than a
politician, an empty suit, trying to do whatever is best for Barack Obama.

That is all Barack Obama cares about. He doesn’t care about
the American people or our country. He wants to be the President, it is all
that he has on his mind, and it is all that he cares about. Whatever he has to
smash through and trample to reach his goal, well they are just sacrifices that
must be made for the great good, isn’t that right Mr. Obama?

He doesn’t care about the Democratic Party or its members.
He doesn’t care about its leaders or its oldest supporters. He cares about
winning this election, above all else. This is extremely obvious, Barack Obama
would not have thrown his mentor Jeremiah Wright under his political bus;
Barack Obama would not have removed himself from his “church”, or which he was
a member for over 20 years.

Those are not things that people easily walk away from.
Looking back on Barack Obama’s much lauded speech on race only confirms this.

President Bush Has Kept Us Safe

There was a great article by Thane Rosenbaum in the Wall
Street Journal today. The article is entitled The President Has Kept Us Safe. In the article he goes on to
discuss how he believes that our President has kept us safe from terrorists in
the nearly 7 years since 9/11. Here is my commentary on the article:

I, as Mr. Rosenbaum, also did not vote for Bush in 2004 (I
wasn’t of age in 2000), but regardless of whom I voted for, President Bush was
reelected and I accepted that choice. I’ve never talked badly about him at all;
I realize that he has an extremely difficult job, much more difficult than I
can even imagine I am sure.

That doesn’t mean that I support absolutely everything that
the President and his administration have done, as the article mentions the
Patriot Act as an example: I certainly don’t agree with our government
infringing on the rights and the privacies of our nations citizens, in fact I
am very much against it; but I can at the very least understand why such
measures were taken. They were undoubtedly put into place to protect the American
people, not to hurt them. I also do not believe that they are wire-tapping my
telephone or reading my messages.

I was also in New York on 9/11, and it’s absolutely correct that the people had a completely
different mindset at that time. I can clearly remember the most liberal people
that I knew, people who now support Barack Obama, suggesting that our country
simply attack other nations without any evidence at all against them, nations
in the middle east, simply because they may have had something to do with the
9/11 terrorist attacks.

Those very same people quite suddenly changed their tune as
the years passed; now they’re against the war in Iraq and think that it was a
terrible idea from the very beginning. They’re vehemently supporting Barack
Obama and the Democrats, and they trash our President every chance that they
get.

Now you could make the argument that the people that I speak
with are simply ignorant, but if you actually read some of the comments made by
Barack Obama followers right here on the internet, you can see that the people
that I speak with are not much different from any other Barack Obama follower.

The article is absolutely correct in saying that the winds
of change take to the American people as a hurricane takes to a wind chime.
They forget that not even 7 short years ago they were the very thing that they
are now so against. They are the ultimate hypocrisy.

Rethinking the war in Iraq: Why we have to stay in Iraq

Why we have to stay in Iraq

 

The people of Iraq are depending on us. The population of
Iraq is estimated at well over twenty-seven million; twenty-seven million of our
fellow human beings that have had their country and their lives turned upside
down by this war; twenty-seven million; twenty-seven million people that are only
going to be affected negatively by our withdrawal from their country in its
current state.

You don’t have to believe that us going into Iraq was a good
idea in the first place, I certainly don’t believe that it was. But that does not
change the fact that we are now in Iraq and that those twenty-seven million
Iraqi children, women, and men, both young and old and every age in between,
are in a much worse situation than we are.

We are certainly going to be affected as well: There is a
huge cost to us staying in Iraq for the long haul, a cost of many American
lives and a large amount of Americans tax dollars. But it is the Iraqi people that are
going to end up paying the greatest price, a far greater price than we could
possibly imagine, if we choose to abandon them and their country, leaving them
with the mess that we have started.

It doesn’t matter why we are in Iraq now, or why we went
there in the beginning. Yes, we all know that Barack Obama voted against going
to war with Iraq; we all know that Hillary Clinton voted to go to war with Iraq; and we
all know that it was the idea of the Republicans, George Bush, and Dick Chaney
in the first place, but none of the matters any longer. The reality of the
situation is that there are millions and millions of innocent Iraqi civilians,
people just like you and I, that are going to end up paying the real cost of
this war. Think of those people the next time you are discussing, listening to,
or reading something about the war in Iraq. Think of those people the next time you hear
a person or a politician say that we need to abandon Iraq.
