THE GREATEST DANGER THAT OBAMA FACES…IS OBAMA HIMSELF!

June 5, 2008

Up until now the greatest danger Obama Faces is Obama himself. If he chooses Hillary as his running mate he’ll also have to worry about his health and well being. At even the slightest sign of a cold we all know that Hillary would hand Barack a Kleenex, but try to assume Presidential power.

As an African-American, I’m proud to see someone who looks like me get as far as he has. His speech writing and oratory skills are brilliant and I can’t wait to hear how he plans to accomplish everything he promises…before the election.

As a sometime advertising copywriter myself, I know the power of words and how they can manipulate the perception of the masses. Even John McCain has changed the theme of his campaign from “Experience” to “Change” because the buzzword works. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!

I’d like Barack to go to Iraq, without McCain leading him by the hand, and come back with an honest report to the American people.

And as far as the recent rise of “Monkey Barellism” in politics goes, we all have skeletons in our closets and have had associations that can be considered dubious at best. It’s how quickly we resolve and distance ourselves from them that builds our character and credibility.

I haven’t made my mind up on who I want to vote for yet, but I do know I don’t want a President who’s either too fast or too slow on the nuclear trigger.

  1. Country Paul Says:

    Artie, I’m thrilled that Sen. Obama won the nomination. Why? Because he’s brilliant, charismatic, has a fresh attitude and ideas, know enough about politics to suround himself with excellent people (just consider the outstandin way he and they ran his campaign), and has inspired millions of people to get involved and get active. Oh, yeah – he’s also biracial. Frankly, I don’t care – I do, but more in a moment; what I DO care about is that he is all of the above and more. Additionally, it’s damn nice to see that the country can see far enough beyond racial – and gender – issues and vote for who they considered to be the best qualified person.

    I think that Sen. Clinton lost not because she’s a woman, but because she’s Hillary – a highly capable person, but with a grating and vacillating persona who brings along the “get two for the price of one” baggage of Bill. Frankly, I’m sad to say he did a lot of damage to her campaign, in my opinion, but I think most of the damage was either self-inflicted(or due to the less-than-stellar campaign she ran.

    I don’t think Sen. Obama would possibly pick Hillary for VP. First, it would look as though she bullied him into it. Second, she represents the past, not the future. Third, there’s no room for both Hillary and Bill. Finally, she disqualified herself, in my opinion, with her three most egregious gaffes: “sniper fire” in Bosnia, “white hard working Americans,” and not conceding like a gentlewoman on Tuesday night. I do think that Sen. Obama has his work cut out for him to find an appropriate VP who won’t alienate Hillary’s base, but I also think he’ll be up to it – and will be wise to let the sauna of public opinion cool for a while before making any sort of announcement.

    You say, “We all have skeletons in our closets and have had associations that can be considered dubious at best. It’s how quickly we resolve and distance ourselves from them that builds our character and credibility.” I think Sen. Obama will certainly have fewer than Sen. Clinton has; while many of hers are well-known, it wouldn’t have stopped the slime-meisters from dragging them out again. And I think Sen. Obama was very smart to pre-emptively note that the slimers are just waiting in the wings to begin their onslaught against him, whether real or imagined, and to ask the country not to be swayed by their crap again this year. I also think the press needs to be a lot more responsible, and keep their coverage focused on real issues, not manufactured crises or non-issues like flag pins.

    Finally, you say: “I don’t want a President who’s either too fast or too slow on the nuclear trigger.” I don’t trust Sen. McCain’s temper – and I do hope both candidates realize that nukes must be the absolutely last – and unused – option. I think Sen. Obama gets that.

    Onward and upward…..
