Why I Dislike Obama

I finally figured out why I dislike Obama so much. It isn't that he is an inexperienced, liberal democrat who will promise anything and deliver nothing. It isn't that he has abandoned everyone close to him that became an inconvenience. It isn't even his defeatist stance on the war in Iraq. None of those things bother me all that much. What really bothers me is his SMUGNESS.

When he speaks, Obama affects poses he thinks portrays him as a great thinker, and uses voice inflections reminiscent of MLK. Watching Obama is almost like looking at a hologram, all visual and no substance.

I can just imagine how Putin would react to Obama putting on one of his holier than thou acts at a conference table. He would peel the hide off him and walk out of the room. Conference over, Obama lost everything.

I hope people get over this infatuation with Obama before the election. We are facing some of the most dangerous times we have ever faced and Obama hasn't a clue.

Couldn't agree with you more.

I will say that not everyone is enamored with his speaking ability. Me, for one. I can't stand the way he drops to a lower note at the end of every sentence. It is so pronounced that i can't figure out why nobody comments about it.

Someone with principles?

McCain was for taking money and big lobbyists out of politics, until he hired seven of them to run his campaign and an oil company lobbyist to run his transition team.

Yeah, he's a guy who can stand up for himself, right? He can't even stand up to the least popular president in American history and tell him he's wrong to torture people.

After lecturing Rumsfeld and demanding answers after Abu Ghraib, what does he do? He goes along with a compromise bill, which Bush signed in late 06, that allows for "intensive interrogation" to continue.

So he was against torture until the worst president in history asked him to forget all that. Then he does.

Heroic in Vietnam. A political coward.
