Way to try and make light of some rather serious character flaws.
These, however, are more realistic and why Obama should not be POTUS and cannot be trusted:
1. Racist Radical Pastors (disowning them now - of course)”
Okay. And my pastor says that you absolutely must trust your leaders because GOD says so. Yet when my leaders LIE to me over and over and over and
over and (insert about two dozen more overs in there).... then how can I trust my pastor? Do I stop going to that church? Take back my membership?
“2, Refusing to Wear American Flag (wearing one now - of course)”
He explained this and did so with legitimate beliefs. I happen to believe why as well. We are in a war for profit and it has damaged this country
more than helped it. Actually, the only people it has helped are those associated with this administration. Not the 95% of the population that is
not in that circle.
“ 3, Friends with Domestic Bomber Ayres”
Please provide the proof that he is 'Friends' with this man. I have seen that he has spoken with him but I have seen nothing displaying a
friendship with him.
“ 4. Disowns his Church”
Yes. From the pressure applied on him by both parties. See my above post. You see, I'll admit this. I'm a bit hypocrital myself. I go to church
because of my wife. I will argue with most points presented by the pastors of the church. However, I like the people I attend with and like the
activities. I think that interacting with people is the most important aspect of spiritual growth. What I am saying is this. I went to a church I
didn't agree with fully but still attended because it is where I was brought up to attend.
“5. Racist Wife”
Proof again please. All I have seen are quotes taken out of context and the like. Give us the actual proof that she is racist.
“ 6. In 1991 Pledged Allegiance to the Black Value System (bet he placed his hand on his heart for this one)”
Speculation and a serious need for proof. Is it so wrong to pledge alligiance to support those of your own race? We are a country made up of almost
all races. That is what this country was built on. Freedom of choice. Does this mean he will only work for the people of darker skin? Heck, maybe
I'll need to sit out in the sun more if this is what you are implying (yes, I'm as white as they come. Long summers in Seattle.)
“ 7. Choosing not to Place Hand on Heart during National Anthem”
See post on the pin. There is a valid reason.
“ 8. Muslim Upbringing”
ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (buzzer stating end of game). Wrong. Please provide the proof of this other than the fact that his father, who was not
in his life, was of foreign, and most likely, Muslim background. His mother was not.
“9. Homosexual Sex Scandal”
And how many scandals surround republicans when it comes to sex? My God I have lost count. The difference though is that the majority of those cases
are TRUE. This one is an obviously fabricated and pathetic attempt of a smeer campaign being put into play by the republican party.
“10. Friendship with 16 Count Convicted Felon Rezko”
Same scenario as the one above. Just speaking with these people does not make them his friends. How shallow and small minded can one be to believe
“11. Citizenship and Family ties to Kenya”
Proof? Please provide it.
“12. Endorsement from Hamas”
Because he has a speak first, attack at last resort type of approach. Right now we are seeing where the attack first, lie about the reasons for it,
fabricate more reasons, and move on to the next country approach is getting us.
“13. Not Enough Political Experience”
Neither did JFK. Yet the nation felt he was one of the greatest leaders we have ever had. I do not know because I am not nearly old enough. I do
believe he was murdered by our own government because he was actually FOR THE PEOPLE.
“14. Votes Present more than Votes”
? '' I don't understand what you are saying? That his votes received are representing more than the votes cast? Please don't go there.
If you do then we will have to bring up 2000 and 2004 all over again with the vast amounts of vote tampering done by the republicans to steal those
“15. Supports Killing the Unborn”
Unfortunately this sucks. Plain and simple.
“16. Ranked #1 Tax and Spend Liberal”
He's a democrat. What else needs to be said? I don't agree with the increase in taxes and such because it usually leads to bigger government.
That should not happen. But, he is a democrat.
“17. Campaign Promises that will Bankrupt the USA”
And where has the republican campaign gotten us? Where did Clintons campaign get us with all of the BS he pulled? I'll tell you. In a much better
position debt wise than we have going on right now. This president has spent more money in his tenure than ALL OF THE OTHER PRESIDENTS IN HISTORY
COMBINED! DO the math!
“18. Refusal to provide Birth Certificate as required for being POTUS”
If true then he is breaking a rule that is required. I haven't looked into this so again, please provide proof instead of words or opinions. If it
is your opinion then say so.
