Barack Obama... Not Qualified!


I was listening to Sean Hannity's radio show yesterday on the way to work and of course he was talking about the election, specifically Barack Obama. Several Obama supporters called in, and after establishing that they were in fact planning to vote for Obama, Hannity asked them why and if they could name just one specific political achievement that led them to support Obama. Not one single caller, out of the four or five I had time to listen to, could name a specific political achievement that pulled them toward the Obama camp. One female caller said she likes Obama because, "He's just more likeable than Hillary Clinton." Well, I have to agree with her on that point.

This is a disturbing trend I've noticed among those who say they have voted for or plan to vote for Obama. They like the guy, but they don't really know anything about him. Truthfully, a lot of people don't know anything about him. Obama's voting record as an Illinois state senator is full of "no votes" or "present" votes. As a U.S. Senator, Obama has not sponsored or written a single piece of significant legislation that has been passed into law. He's sort of like a friendly ghost... you don't really know why he's there, but hey, at least he's likeable.

As Hannity gently pointed out to his callers and listeners, while like-ability is a good quality for a person to have, it does NOT qualify a person to be President of the United States. Listen to a Barack Obama speech and you're likely to hear the word "change" spoken dozens, if not hundreds, of times. Change is good in politics and I want change in Washington as much as the next American. But I want specific change, and that is where Obama falls way short. He almost never gives specifics on how he'd change anything. Be it social security, health care, the War on Terror or any other important issue facing this country, Obama fails to give specifics for his recipe of "change."

Barack Obama has been called a "visionary" and "the next John Kennedy" by many in the media and the liberal establishment. They couldn't be more wrong. Vision is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine without specific plans. Obama severely lacks the experience and knowledge to be the most powerful man in the world. No man, or woman for that matter, should ever be elected Commander-in-Chief of the world's most powerful military based solely on like-ability. The Presidency is not a job that affords the luxury of on-the-job training. The Presidency is not a job for Barack Obama!

I completely agree with your statement. I just do not understand why people are turning away from qualified, accomplished candidates to a man who has not a clue. He's all smoke and mirrors. I just do not get the excitement over him. He is nor ever will be JFK and Michelle never Jackie. Are people so desperate that they have to draw from the past to make their own history. If he is nominated I will cross party lines. The Republicans will eat him alive.

I AM A WOUNDED SOLDIER TRYING TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF AMERICANS, TRUE AMERICANS. I LAID DOWN MY LIFE FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL AMERICANS. I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT AN ERATIC PART OF THE MUSLIM FAITH ATTACKED US IN 2001, AND SO MANY HAVE FORGOT. THIS MAN CLAIMS TO BE AN AMERICAN. HIS FATHER WAS A MUSLIM. HE TOOK THE OATH OF OFFICE ON THE KORON, NOT THE BIBLE. HE WOULD NOT PLACE HI HAND OVER HIS HEART SAYING THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIENCE, BECAUSE HE SAID HE HAS THE RIGHT NOT TOO SAY THE WORD GOD. SO DOES THAT MEAN WE SHOULD HAVE TO SAY IN MUHHAMID DO WE TRUST. HE CAME TO THIS NATION. ALSO, I DO NOT WANT HIM AS MY COMMANDER AND CHIEF IF HE CLAIMS REV. WRIGHT IS HIS RELIGOUS LEADER, AND THE REV. TALKS ABOUT THE WHITE MAN LIKE THAT. COME ON AMERICA, OPEN THE SCALES THAT ARE ON YOUR EYES, BY THE ENEMY, AND SEE THE TRUTH. HE IS THE NEXT ANTI-CHRIST.

Why is it that nobody seems to looking at the US Constitution as the first place to see if a person is qualified to be president? If they did they would disqulify Obama right away. http://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/showthread.php?p=5107850
