A bit long, but well worth the time needed to read, listen and watch this well done piece. It would be great to pass along to undecided family and friends.

I did a search, but couldn't find the link on this board. If it has already been given, I apologize.

These are lofty promises from a man with precious little executive experience, and a Senate career that lasted exactly 143 legislative days before he launched yet another campaign for higher office. No one can deny his ambition. In fact, if Obama wins on November 4th—and serves one full term in the Oval Office—the Presidency of the United States would be the longest consecutively held full-time job he has ever held without seeking another.
interesting look at his actual career

I really appreciate the time and energy they put into presenting this information in a clear way. That video of him talking about "they are going to try and make you afraid of me." Disgusts me.

Why? Because the truth hurts?

Well, it seems he was correct.

Wow that was a long blog post that didn't actually talk about any serious issues related to the presidency. If a political post starts with the non-issue of abortion, what a joke.

Love how they claim they won't smear, and then proceed to spread lies. Classy.

Life Lies
Barack Obama and Born-Alive.

By David Freddoso

In 2001, Senator Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois senate to speak against a bill that would have recognized premature abortion survivors as “persons.” The bill was in response to a Chicago-area hospital that was leaving such babies to die. Obama voted “present” on the bill after denouncing it. It passed the state Senate but died in a state house committee.

I'll dispute this one real quickly (again) - this point has been raised time and time again - but it gets ignored, even though its common sense.

Second, Obama is challenged by ABC News anchor Charlie Gibson at a primary debate in Pennsylvania. Gibson asks Obama why he insists on raising capital gains taxes (which affect millions of American investors) even after history has proven that raising said taxes actually decreases government revenues from the taxes, and cutting capital gains taxes actually brings more revenue into federal coffers. Obama has no answer, other than to blow off all the evidence, and say that raising taxes is the fair thing to do—practical consequences be damned.

Thanks for sharing such "confidential" information on Obama. I am not even voting for ANYBODY but all the talking points have been covered by Conservative talk shows ad nauseum for at least a year or so. Maybe if you had posted this about a year ago, it would have been more effective. At this point, I do not think anybody will change their minds because of this article.
