Things That Puzzle Me About The 2008 Presidential Election

While the election is now over, there are a few things about it that still bothers me.

1. Pennsylvania: What were this constituency thinking? First off, they voted for Barak Obama. This is the candidate who characterized them in a speech in San Francisco, California as being a state comprised of hicks who cling to their guns and bibles and have no tolerance for anyone who thinks differently from them. What an insult. Would you vote for a candidate who insulted you and your fellow citizens?
I sure wouldn't! Then there is Obama's attack against the coal industry, declaring that his administration would definately bankrupt any one in the coal industry who tried to continue mining and developing coal. The coal industry is very important to Pennsylvania's economy and jobs. Yet, these idiots vote for him nonetheless. I am perplexed. And then there is there keeping John Murtha in office. This lout has not only made treasous, slanderous statements against our military, but, if that wasn't enough, he insulted his constituents as being racists. When he was called out on that outrageous characterization, Murtha simply substitutes the word "red necks" for "racists", which is a pejorative for: ignorant, hayseed well... racists. And yet they ensure that the man who insulted them remains in power. Go figure.

2. Ohio: Why isn't anyone challenging Obama's win in that state when we all know that ACORN was really busy there with their usual voter fraud tactics with questionable voter registration tactics, coupled with a state official who managed to get the Supreme Court's approval in her not implementing any measures to ensure that voter fraud wasn't occuring there? Hmmmm... I wonder if Obama really won that state "fair and square".

3. "8 more years of Bush": One of the successful mantras that the Obama campaign used was the maligning of the Bush Administration for running up the nation's debt into the trillions. That sounds reasonable, except.... Obama is also planning on running up our deficet into... the trillions. Can any one say "hypocrite"?!!!

4. Campaign contributions: McCain approached Obama early on in the race to agree to not accept campaign contributions from certain sources. They agreed. McCain kept his end of the bargin, Obama lied and did the complete opposite. What does this say about Obama's character? Can anyone really trust him at his word?

5. Radical, anti-America, Black Racist, home grown terrorists, Communist associations: Barack's ties to racists like Rev Wright, Louis Farrakahn, and terrorists like Bill Ayers makes me wonder why I should really want this man as the President of our country. I wonder why this makes me nervous....

6. First African-American President of the United States: As I have pointed out several times before, Barak Obama is NOT an African-American. He is half white and half black. To call him black is at worst racist, at least ignorant. Yes, of course on the outside he appears to be obviously black but he is still half white.
He does ironically serve to be a symbol of reconciliation between the whites and blacks in this country and their ridiculous history of anamosity. However, based upon the caliber of people that he has surrounded himself with in the past and the contents of his books, I don't see any wish on his part for reconciliation between the races. I hope that I am wrong on this, but I am not holding my breath.

7. "The first time that I could be proud to be an American": Michelle Obama has none of my respect whatsoever. She benefited from a top notch education in an Ivory League college, Princeton I believe, and yet she has no pride in the country who provided her with such an opportunity?! You have got to be kidding me! Very few americans have such an opportunity. Yet she doesn't even appreciate it. This ungrateful woman has nothing to say to me to gain my respect. First Lady? How about First Disgrace.

This post was an honest attempt to enumerate my concerns about our new President. Although these concerns of mine are real, I am willing to give Barak Obama a chance and hope that he will take this mandate from the people to be President with the ultimate respect and gratitude, and not over-reach and think that he has a mandate to force his Leftist, Socialistic, Radical beliefs on this great country.

Let's wait and see and not rush to any conclusions about Barak. And let's pray for him and hope that he winds up being the President this country needs in its dire hour.
