I have been asked by friends why I dislike Barrack Obama so much. My reasons are plentiful, but I'm willing to say the 5 that are the most prominent
in my mind. They are not in any specific order.
1) His Political and Life experiences -- He's 47 years old, and the average age of Presidents happens to be 55. He's only been in the political
arena for the past 11 years, and only on the national stage since 2004. If you ask me, he doesn't have the experience he needs yet. If he were to
come back in 8 years, I might actually give him some more consideration, but right now.... No.
2) His Racial Tenancies -- My goodness he's been fast on that race button. He represents himself as a "black man" or an "African American" and
he's not. He's of mixed race, like Mariah Carey. Her father was Afro-Venezuelan and by looking at her you'd never classify her as black. Sure you
can say "Well, his skin is dark so he can do that." but it's a misrepresentation of the truth, he should admit to his mixed blood more than he
It's not just that, though, it's the fact that he has a "get out of trouble free" card with it. Anyone who says anything at all negative about
him in any way is Racist. I've seen it here on the board so much, it's making me sick. Why can't you dislike someone cause of the issues? Why
does every fricken thing have to do with race, cause it's Obama? You may think your stunting arguements out of unsupporters, but in reality your
just pushing those who don't care for his politics or are undecided away. It's a dis-service.
3) His Promises -- He's promised everything to everyone, from financial relief and gas cost relief, to health care, to peace. How the heck can he
deliver to everyone? Where is the money going to come from? Taxing the rich? How do you think that will go over?
It's the rich who run this country... they donate money to political campaigns. Even if Obama didn't take any support from any interest groups, or
any of the rich, they have ways to keep their money in their hands. It's how they stay rich and how they got rich. So that cuts off that funding
What are the other choices in getting the money.... besides us everyday joes, there isn't one. So one of two things will happen, he won't do jack,
or.... he will and tax those of us who are barely making it as it is, and then... bam, we will be on the programs required to survive.
4) His attitude about life -- Their was an act a while back called the Babies Born Alive Act. It suggested that those babies who suffered through a
botched "Partial birth abortion" (which is where the head is partially delivered, then a pair of scissors are jabbed in the crown of the head so a
vacuum can suck out the child's brains) should be treated like any other American and have the right to live like any other Americans. Obama was
against this act, saying that he didn't want to put any responsibility on the mother or the abortionist on keeping this child. I'm sorry, but what
Law states that if the lungs of a child have inflated once (as in it took a breath of oxygen) and then is later killed (even if it was seconds later)
it's murder. So, if this botched procedure (which most people don't even realize how gruesome it is) produces a child that can breath, shouldn't
it be allowed to live? This is completely appauling to me. Who in their right mind could support anyone that wants to let babies die slowly after a
5) Voting record -- The man has spent more time voting present than picking a stance and standing with it. It shows that he lacks gumption to picking
a side. How can we have a president who will jump from one thing to another so quickly your head spins? He swears now he's not Muslim which is a
big deal for some Americans... how do we know he won't just change his mind once he gets into office? How do we know he will mean anything he
promised us once he gets in? I've already said he over promised, but my feelings are as soon as he gets in, he will swear he never promised anything
So... those are my big reasons for not wanting this man to be our next President. You can dispute any of this if you like, or you can list your
reasons for not liking Obama.... but.... this is why I will never vote for Obama.
