Gun rights are just the latest example of Barack Obama pandering and trying to hide his radical liberal agenda. His refusal to release any papers from his time in the Illinois State Senate (claiming that none — not even a schedule — exist) is part and parcel of his strategy of leaving no paper trail so that he can remain the “blank slate” as he describes himself in his book, The Audacity of Hope. Other areas where he has shifted and morphed with the political winds include decriminalizing marijuana laws and the Iraq war. His inconsistencies on the Iraq war should be well known to your readers. His flip flopping on marijuana laws may be less so. First Barack Obama supported decriminalization, telling students at Northwestern University in 2004 when he was running for Senate, “I think we need to rethink and decriminalize our marijuana laws.” This was caught on video which was obtained by the Washington Times.
Then he claimed to be against it during a debate of democratic presidential candidates last fall. Then he said he was for it, explaining he raised his hand by mistake. Recently as he faces primaries in the relatively conservative states of PA, NC, WV and KY he is stated that he opposes decriminalization of marijuana. What accounts for this latest switch? His campaign says he didn’t understand what decriminalization meant. Laughable given his Harvard JD and “10 years as a constitutional lawyer.”p>The only thing for which Barack Obama firmly stands, near as I can tell, is his own ambition. br> — Ann M. Bilyew /p>
Flip a coin to decide whether or not to vote for Obama? Please.
Given that he’s now running full-tilt in his leopard-changing-spots phase of his campaign, here’s hoping that reasonable people — the ones who really don’t like to be disrespected, regardless of the level of their innate intelligence — will see that desperate Obama will quite literally say or do anything, in spite of the obvious dishonesty and insult of what he’s saying or doing.
He reminds me of a politician I once saw years ago in a small town in southern West Virginia’s coalfields. On an election day, he parked his Cadillac across the street from a polling place, opened the trunk of that car and then proceeded to hand out pints of liquor to passersby.p>Thing is, that fellow never seemed to pretend to be more than he was, unlike this very dangerous and divisive junior senator from Illinois. But both counted on the stupidity of voters. br> — C. Kenna Amos br> Princeton, West Virginia /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
