What is it exactly that Barack Hussein Obama has accomplished that has garnered him this much attention from the liberal leaning mass media? He has been in the Senate all of 2 years and for some reason he has the credentials already to run this country?
"I certainly didn't expect to find myself in this position a year ago," said Obama, who also announced on a video posted on his website that he would set up an exploratory committee allowing him to raise campaign funds and gauge support among the US public.
He is expected to try and derail the freight train that is Hillary Clinton and secure the Democratic nomination in part by being a fresh face, with fresh ideas for a very morbid and depressing Democratic Party to rally behind.
"Our leaders in Washington seem incapable of working together in a practical, commonsense way," Obama said in a video posted on his Web site. "Politics has become so bitter and partisan, so gummed up by money and influence, that we can't tackle the big problems that demand solutions. And that's what we have to change first."
This man is nothing new to Washington, there always new faces that show up, but none of them have the staying power because they always seem to fail in the area of ideas, a category in which the Democrats are seriously lacking and one that is a determent to this country as a whole.
Obama went on to state, "The decisions that have been made in Washington these past six years, and the problems that have been ignored, have put our country in a precarious place," Obama said.
When making these types of overtly agitating comments he fails to mention what exactly is going to be done to solve the ills of this country and what stance he will take when it comes to foreign policy.
He was elected in 1996 to the Illinois state Senate, where he earned a reputation as a consensus-building Democrat who was extremely liberal on such social and economic issues as backing gay rights, abortion rights, gun control, universal health care and tax breaks for the poor.
What makes this even worse is his stand and views on the Iraq War, which he views as a failure and is one of many top Democrats that have openly called for a retreat in the war on terror or “redeployment” in Democrat code words.
"Today's announcement is the first step in a long journey to the White House," said US Senator Dick Durbin, the Senate's number two Democrat and one of the most ardent and vocal supporters of an Obama presidential run.
"Barack Obama brings to this race a promise of reconciliation and a feeling of hope that America desperately needs," said Durbin.
How this man plans on getting through Hillary is beyond me, she has yet to formally commit herself into the foray, but the word is that she is only days away from announcing her intentions to run for her party’s nomination.
We cannot entrust the country with people who openly advocate for surrender of our forces in Iraq, they have repeatedly refused to tell the American people what the consequences of leaving Iraq would really be.
They know that it would create chaos in the Middle East and only create more and deadlier attacks in this country, and why? So they can advance their agenda and regain the power that they feel they have been cheated out of.
It’s a very sad state of affairs and I fear one that will only get worse.
