We already know that only a Democrat Party suicide pact to give the nomination to Hillary will keep Barack Hussein Obama from heading the ticket.
The great thing about this agonizingly long primary season is that it has provided plenty of time to identify, once again, Hillary’s (and Bill’s) penchant for lying. They lie, I think, in the belief that no one will actually remember their lies. They have lied so often and with such success, they may not even be able to discern between the truth and a lie any more.
Short of a huge victory in Pennsylvania (and even then) Hillary can only get the nomination if the super-delegates form a circle around Obama and become a firing squad, thereby eliminating him and themselves at the same time.
What impresses me at this point, however, is how, despite the fawning and prostration of the mainstream media, people are already well aware that the young Senator from Illinois, barely even halfway through his first term and the product of what is widely perceived as the most corrupt political machine in America, has some serious problems with the truth. He is beginning to make the Clintons look like amateurs.
The obvious example is his inability to remember anything anti-American or anti-Semitic after having belonged to an Afro-Centric church for twenty years. The pastor is a man Obama has declared a mentor and family friend, someone who’s tight with Minister Farrakhan of the Black Muslims.
Then there’s his association with a Chicago real estate magnate that allowed him to buy a million-dollar home some regard as well beyond his and his wife’s means at the time. It probably helped that his wife received a whopping big raise from the non-profit hospital that had benefited from some Obama earmarks in Congress.
Indeed, I have seen long lists of his purported lies and there is even a website, http://slickbarry.com/ that offers more fodder, but I don’t need such things to convince me that Obama is a stranger to the truth.
He has the con man’s charm, a master manipulator of all with whom he came in contact.
His message is vague. His actual positions are few except to say he has voted consistently as a Liberal, offering little evidence of bipartisanship. He talks of change and hope, but what politician does not? He is, in Joe Biden’s words, “articulate and clean.” And he has a terrible memory for anything he needs to explain away, coupled with a skill for deflecting criticism.
In the end, I don’t think he likes white people very much. Not even his grandmother.
If he is his party’s nominee, I think we will see Democrats melt away from giving him the support he needs from them. I think Republicans will go to the polls in droves to vote for John McCain. I think he’s toast.
