Where in the World are Barack Obama’s Beliefs?

We have history in the making this year. The first major African-American candidate for President of the U.S.A. But who is this guy? He’s a Democrat, but that doesn’t always tell you much. He claims to be a Christian, but anyone can claim. He appears to be independant and untainted by politics, but is it true? Lets find out.

He is a Democrat, he has the most liberal voting record in the Senate. His plans also are typical for Democrats. (Look at his plan at http://www.barackobama.com/index.php under the issues tab and notice that he only tells you what he plans to do, not how he will do it, or how much it will cost) So if your an independent, don’t expect anything to different.

He claims to be a Christian (I say claims because you can never really know), but this remark makes me wonder “It’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion* or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigration sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations”. True, that is probably the worst quote he has ever said, and maybe he didn’t mean it like it sounded, but do we want to take that chance? Their is also the matter of his spiritual mentor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who’s quotes include  “God d### America”, and some even more offensive remarks saying that we deserved 9/11. I doubt this was common, but it wasn’t alien to the congregation, they clapped and cheered! What was Barack doing those 20 years?

Is he really innocent of playing politics? I’m afraid that I don’t believe it. A large amount of flip flopping and some quotes that just don’t add up have changed my mind. Barack Obama is a guy you would have a hard time disliking, but I sure wouldn’t trust him. He’s a politician folks, don’t expect anything different.

  1. his strongest stance to date was his opposition to the Iraq troop surge…he never flipped on that position nor did the Dems…until recently when he realized he was wrong on one of the biggest issues possible
