This was an interesting post on Yahoo News, it is a biased piece against Barack, but if what is says is true, shines a clear light on the real Obama… The first part is a bit of an over reaction to a campaign propoganda tool, however the the part that goes into his past ideaology is very unnerving.
Campaign ’08:clubs the presidential seal as he announces to the world that anyone who opposes him is a racist. With almost messianic arrogance, he has proclaimed he will save us from ourselves.
WhenObama spoke during a meeting of Democratic governors in Chicago last Friday, a new seal adorned his podium.
It had nothing in common with the presidential seal he could one day stand behind — a seal we are familiar with as a representation of American strength and our desire for peace through strength.
The presidential seal shows an eagle clutching both arrows and an olive branch and the national motto “E pluribus unum” (Out of many, one). It’s a tribute to the American dream, to the American melting pot and to our willingness to defend it.
Obama’s seal, which he has since dropped, was quite different. For some reason, Obama felt the need to dispense with his usual “Change You Can Believe In” sign and create a symbol that was at once eerily similar and disturbingly different.
The top of the seal sported the words “Obama” and “America” in large type as if they were one phrase and the election were not about our future but his. It also had iconography used in the U.S. presidential seal, but Obama’s said “Vero possumus,” rough Latin for “Truly, we are able,” akin to the Obama slogan, ‘Yes, we can.”
Instead of “Seal of the President of the United States,” Obama’s Web site address was listed. And instead of a shield, Obama’s eagle wore his “O” campaign logo with a rising sun representing hope ahead. All military references were gone.
We could dismiss Obama’s seal as a campaign gimmick, but not Obama’s rhetoric before a group of Florida donors in Jacksonville Friday night. “We know what kind of campaign they (the Republicans) are going to run,” he said. “They’re going to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black? He’s got a feisty wife.”
Apparently Obama shares the victim mentality — or at least is willing to exploit it. He asks, in essence, how anyone can oppose him and stand in the way of both change and history. And he implies that anyone who does so must be a racist. His words bear a resemblance to the words thundered from the pulpit of his Trinity United Church by the likes of Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger.
A revealing profile in 1995 in the Chicago Reader, a far-left free weekly, tells of how the young Obama fully embraced theespoused by Wright at Trinity and did not accept “the unrealistic politics of integrationist assimilation.”
According to the profile, Obama said he was “tired of seeing the moral fervor of black folks whipped up — at the speaker’s rostrum and from the pulpit — and then allowed to dissipate because there’s no agenda, no concrete program for change.” He has change in mind, all right.
And yes, he does have a feisty wife, one who campaigns for him. As a part of his campaign, she’s fair game. It iswho said that for the first time in her life she was proud of her country, a country she says is “just downright mean.” If she’s going to make those remarks, she and he have to defend them.
While Obama masks the radical agenda of the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate in lofty rhetoric, his wife cuts to the chase. In a speech in California, Michelle Obama said: “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone.” Or else.
When campaigning in Roseburg, Ore., Obama said: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.” Obama added: “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.” Seems that Obama won’t let us enjoy our freedoms any more than he’ll let us defend them.
