The Dark Side of Obama

Well, Hillary has been vanquished, at least for the time being, so now we're left the prospect of a President McCain or a President Obama.

The more I learn about Senator Obama, the more concerned I become. The list of his strange associations keeps growing. For instance, check out the anti-Semitic material which was allowed to be posted on his official campaign website (subject link).

Then there's his excessively egotistical speeches. Politicians aren't shrinking violets, but it was disconcerting last week to hear Obama state that future generations would claim his nomination was "the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal..."

He also said, "I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick..."

As though we don't already? Good grief.

From The Wall Street Journal: "For all of his inspiring rhetoric about bipartisanship, his voting record is among the most partisan in the Senate."

They conclude that he is "the least tested and experienced major party nominee in modern times." Not a comforting thought.

Monday Update: See-Dubya, posting at Michelle Malkin's site, opines on what the anti-Semitic posts allowed to proliferate on Obama's website say about Obama's managerial style: "This is pretty much the only thing he’s run as an executive. Who does he hire? How does he manage them?"

It's interesting there apparently wasn't one person in the Obama campaign with enough Internet savvy to hire some moderators to keep offensive material off the official campaign site.
