Obama for president, 2008
So much has been said about the reasons for going to war in Iraq. It is now as clear as day that none of the reasons given were true. It can be stated without fear of prejudice that the whole thing was an outright fabrication given all the facts that have now come to light.
Enter the 2008 presidential elections. With one swipe of the hand, all republican candidates are disqualified. As a matter of national and global interest, no republican should be allowed near the White House in a hundred years because that’s how many years that party has set civilization back. Attention now turns to the democrats
If the outcome of the Iraq invasion and occupation was not so tragic, it would be laughable to think that all members of congress who voted to start military intrusion into Iraq were deceived by the bush administration.
Far from it, all those who voted for the war including Clinton, Biden, Edward and Dodd knew what they were doing. They took a calculated political risk in part to deflect criticism of apparent weakness in matters of national defense. The other profound reason was to fulfill their obligation to special interest groups like the Neo-cons whose agenda is counter to real American interest. Think about it deeply.
All the candidates who are now prostrating at the altar of empty regrets should be held accountable just as George Bush and his cronies. These presidential hopefuls should not be rewarded for their lack of vision and leadership at the critical moment when supreme judgment and courage were demanded.
Obama is the man for president. After all, what he saw sitting down in the valley, others couldn’t see standing atop the hill.
What other test of leadership can there be other than the ability to make sound decisions using instinctive judgment in the face of uncertainty. Obama passed this test while the other candidates failed.
All those politicians who favored the disastrous incursion into Iraq should be held accountable because they failed in their duty as leaders to protect the vital interests of America namely our freedom, pride, treasure and national security. Why should these people be trusted to lead now?
A strong case can be made for Obama to be president because he has already demonstrated presidential capabilities which include strong vision, superior intellect, political savvy, courage, successful professional career, uncluttered personal life and a great natural charm.
These qualities far out weigh the so called years of experience touted by the other candidates. What do they have to show for their experience? Can they explain why we are in such a mess today given their vast experience?
Not another word about being deceived by George Bush. Please, drop the self serving talk and make way for Obama, the next president of the United States.
