What Makes Obama Presidential?

in Obama

To those of you who are mesmerized by the stentorian tones of Barack (can't say his middle name because it's "insensitive") Obama I have a question. What has he EVER done that qualifies him to be president of the United States? Admittedly, he looks good, and sounds good. But then so does Katie Couric. President perky Katie?

Obama has never met a teleprompter he doesn't like. Nor an open debate that he does. He can give a speech, he reads really well. He showed this in 2004 which started this whole sorry mess. He also gave a platitude laden speech in 2008 but again was short on details. He says he wants to debate John McCain yet has declined over 10 times to do so.

Obama claims that Governor Palin has a small resume. Obamas resume is so thin you could shave with it. What has he done outside of being a "community organizer?" After all the puffery does he have his name on one major piece of legislation?

Sarah Palin has governed the largest state in the union and done it with an 80+% approval rating. She made more executive decisions as the mayor of a small town in a week than Obama has his entire career.

As president you have to actually make decisions and stand by them, not wait for legislative consensus. Obama is famous for voting "present." This means that he won't take a yes or no stand on the issue or question at hand. In other words, hundreds of times he didn't have the nerve to take a stand. When the phone rings at 3:00 A.M. and a decision has to be made he can't say "present." Both Senator McCain and Governor Palin have been in the crucible of pressure decisions. Neither Senator Biden nor Senator Obama ever have.

John McCain is truly a maverik. I don't agree with him on some of his stands. Nor do I agree with Sarah Palin on all of her stands. However they are both a breath of fresh air to the body politic. In fact I see a lot of Margaret Thatcher in Sarah Palin. If you want the same old hackneyd liberal tax and spend policies go ahead and vote Obama. Be careful what you wish for.
