President-elect Obama ran on the promise of change since initiating one of the longest campaigns in history. He said that he was different. He said that he would not continue the failed policies of the Federal government. He said that he would end the war in
I don’t mean that Obama is a liar in the leftist sense of the word because when they call someone a liar that simply means that the person does not share the leftist worldview. What I mean is that Obama has a problem with prevarication. I am not speaking about the barely known and unrepentant terrorist family that he shares a neighborhood with or about his total ignorance of Jeremiah Wright’s pastoral and hate filled messages after sitting in the church pew for twenty years. Although, Bill Ayers describing Barrack Obama as a close family friend in contradiction to Obama’s statements and Jeremiah Wright’s screaming tirades from the pulpit that would surely gain the attention of anyone within the congregation, causes one to doubt Obama’s veracity. I mean, even Oprah could only stand a few visits to Wright’s church before she decided to run for her life, but Obama seemingly thought more of his pastor than his own grandmother and he proved it when he threw grandma under the bus in order to try and save his spiritual advisor, but I digress.
What I am referring to when I call Obama a liar is his insipid change message. Sure it sounds great in a sound bite and sure it appeals to people who are disgusted with a government stuck on stupid, but you actually have to mean it when you say it or it is a bald face lie. Despite the President-elect’s constant intonations of “change,” he has done nothing to lay the foundations for such change. When you have hired Rahm Emmanuel as your Chief of Staff, you can’t possibly be serious about change. You may remember Mr. Emmanuel as the elected official who once said “F*** the Republicans” and helped to initiate the bare blade partisanship that now permeates the American Congress. As a former
Joe Biden is not only a loudmouth who has an amazing record of shooting off his mouth when it has a tendency to damage the Democrats the most, he also has more than thirty years of service as an elected official. How thirty years of entrenchment in the politics of

When one examines the names of Obama’s appointments we find the same old leftist establishment that has been entrenched in
Essentially, you wish to become children again and have momma take care of you. Momma will cook your food, clean your clothes, and provide for your health care needs. All that you must do is to be a good boy or girl. Translated to the government that means that the Federal government will provide for your basic needs and health care and you must be a good citizen. If you do not know how to be a good citizen then the government will teach you and if you cannot be taught, you will be ejected from the body politic. Such will be the fate of all non-conformists. Freedom, independence, and individualism are all lost. If these people would simply move to Red China there would be no problem, but they insist that I must live like that as well and I cannot abide that. Seeking someone else to care for you is your business, but demanding that I come along for my own good is insanity. Nevertheless, that is the change that Obama seeks to accomplish.
I say, don’t tread on me.
