A Barack Obama Roundup

John Hinderaker at Power Line notes that somehow Senator Obama equates dissent with the highest level of patriotism...which is interesting given his anti-American connections.

Something I've noticed about Senator Obama is that underneath the smooth oratory, he's a know-it-all, and I'm not sure that's going to wear well over the long haul...especially when he's a know-it-all who changes his positions at will. Regarding Obama's changing positions on gun control, Ed Morrissey asks "Obama Still Doesn't Get YouTube, Does He?"

Speaking of Obama's positions on guns, here's info on his record in Illinois...which does not match up with his stated approval of last week's 2nd Amendment decision from the Supreme Court.

Also of note: Robert Novak on "Obama's Dodge on Handguns."

Scott Johnson wonders about "the real Barack Obama"...and Charles Krauthammer notes that members of the press either ignore Obama's position changes, or offer admiration and sympathy for his political, er, flexibility.

Daniel Pipes examines the evidence and questions whether Senator Obama has been honest about his Muslim upbringing, and what this says about his character: "...if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president."

Most troubling of all, Peter Kirsanow notes Obama's "callous indifference," voting against the Induced Birth Infant Liability Act, which "was designed to extend the same medical care to babies who happen to survive an abortion attempt as is enjoyed by all babies born alive." In other words, if a baby survives an abortion, Senator Obama believes it's wrong to offer the baby medical care.

Kirsanow: "I suspect most people don't know about Obama's position on babies who survive abortion attempts and it's unlikely that they'll ever find out. The media seem more interested in reporting on the cultural implications of fist-bumps or the racial animus of those who question Obama's policies. I would wager, however, that if more people knew about Obama's disregard for babies who have the audacity to survive an abortion, there would be more scrutiny and less adulation."

Update: Jim Geraghty and Ed Morrissey on Obama's contradictory positions on gay marriage.

All excellent links. Thanks Laura, for collecting them. Its nice to be able to read one after the other...

And boy did Peter Kirsanow hit the nail on the head - 'callous indifference'. Its mind-boggling. If Obama becomes POTUS, I certainly pray he'll give a little bit of that magic hope and change toward those babies that struggle to survive yet another torture. God help us.
