Barack Obama making bid for White House official


by Foehammer's Anvil
In about an hour from now, Barack Obama will announce his bid for President. I can’t say I’m surprised about it. It could be a way of preening him for the 2012 or 2016 bids, and is very likely his first step towards a 2008 Vice Presidential ticket along with a more viable Democratic hopeful like Hilary. The truth remains to be seen.

If you want to put a former (with a question mark) Muslim in the White House, then this is your chance. You should know already what I think about that proposition.

The best man for the job in the race so far is easily Rudy Giuliani, and as much as Barack would like to emulate Abraham Lincoln by announcing his candidacy in Springfield, Illinois today, that’s not going to sweep the skeletons out of his closet. Each candidate is going to get grilled in the campaign over frivolous personal issues, but when it comes to Barack’s past, I wouldn’t call any of the following things frivolous: drug use, Muslim schooling in Indonesia and using race as a ticket to the White House are three strikes against him in my book.

This is so exciting. We are about to witness the biggest contrast in ideology for President of the United States in our history.

One one side we have Hussein Obama. A guy who an IL Senate colleague of his said had a voting record "to the left of Mao Tse Tung." A guy who has a perfect 100 voting record from the Marxist ADA. A guy who attended a Madrassa in Indonesia as a child for 4 years and has an Islamic surname.

Contrast this with Rudy Giuliani, a libertarian Republican, fiscally conservative yet socially tolerant. Plus, Pro-Defense and Anti-Islamo-Fascist. A guy who told a Saudi Prince to shove his $10 million up his ass. A guy who the NY Times called a "budget slashing, privatizing Ayn Randian."

Folks you can't get a more extreme contrast than that. Leftwing Fascist versus a Freedom-loving Patriotic Libertarian Republican.
