Obama’s Hoax on America, part III

James Lyons’ article, The Hoax, is reprinted here as a continuing review of the hoax that is Barack H. Obama:

The packaging of the Democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States, aided and abetted by the drive-by media and major TV networks, have perpetrated a great hoax on the American public. Never before in our history have we had a candidate with such a lack of accomplishments and a lack of transparency into his background and associates.

We can’t see his records from prep school, Occidental College, Columbia University or Harvard. What was his thesis? Who paid for his education at Harvard, since there is no record of student loans? There are even questions concerning where he was born. This is a fundamental and critical question. Was he born in Hawaii or Kenya? Did he become an Indonesian citizen? If so, he would have had to give up his U.S. citizenship. Was he then naturalized as a U.S. citizen when he returned to Hawaii from Indonesia? The documentation needs to be made public now. Certainly, security clearance requirements will require that the original documents be produced.

If the backgrounds and record or accomplishments of the two candidates were reversed, you can be assured the message coming out of the major media outlets would be quite different. Past associations matter. If John McCain had a 15-year relationship with the former unrepentant Weather Underground domestic terrorist, Pentagon bomber, flag-stomping radical leftist communist fugitive William Ayers and his accomplice wife Bernadine Dohrn, he would be attacked most critically. His judgment would be trashed.

There is a history of past associations by Barack Obama with black militants and dedicated Marxist leftists that should raise serious concern and should be exposed. If Mr. McCain had worked as a community organizer for the “Industrial Area Foundation,” an organization founded by the Marxist radical agitator Saul Alinsky using his training manual “Rules for Radicals,” he probably could not have got past the primaries. Likewise, his association with Gerald Kellman – an Alinsky disciple – who would have hired him with a $25,000 grant from the Woods Fund, where Mr. Ayers was on the board, would be more fodder for the drive-by media.

Had Mr. McCain been associated with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, he would be condemned as a racist. The same for his association with nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Let’s not forget, Mr. Obama considered Mr. Wright to be his “moral compass” until he became a political liability. There is his association with campaign fund-raiser and “slum lord” convicted felon Tony Rezko. The list of past and continuing questionable associations is too long to be covered here, but while they should be fully and openly vetted to date they have largely been given a pass.

The economy is the No. 1 issue facing the next president along with two ongoing wars. Mr. McCain in 2006 along with other Republican senators sent a letter to the Senate majority leader urging passage of a bill that would have reined in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and possibly reduced the economic crises we are now in. Mr. Obama did not support this effort. In fact, he is one of the biggest recipients of campaign contributions from these organizations.

When Mr. McCain tried to introduce the bill again in 2007, it was blocked by Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd and his fellow Democrats.

Mr. Obama states he has a plan to fix the economy. He says he will ensure that “economic justice is served.” What this phrase means is code for a socialist agenda for redistribution of wealth following a failed Marxist model of government taxing and spending.

Education is one of the key issues that have been raised to counter inequity in America today. If John McCain’s home base were Chicago and he pontificated on how he would focus on early education and helping poor children so another generation is not left behind, the news media would be quick to point out that Chicago has one of the worst education systems in the country for children.

Money is not the problem. Chicago spends more than $10,000 per student. However, less than one-third of Chicago’s high school juniors meet the statewide standards in tests. Teacher’s salaries are well above the norm and apparently are unaffected by performance.

In 1995, the radical leftist Mr. Ayers selected Barack Obama as chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge on “Excellence in Education.” His 1995-2000 tenure proved remarkably unsuccessful. When he can’t fix the school system in his home base, what does he plan for the country?

Mr. Obama’s track record as a united and consensus builder does not exist. His record in the Senate earns him the reputation as the second most liberal senator. His qualifications as commander in chief, when compared to the military credentials and service to our country by Mr. McCain, are nonexistent.

The propaganda that the American public is inundated with today by the drive-by media is the 21st-century version of the 19th-century medicine man whose “snake oil” will cure everything. The American public didn’t buy it then, don’t buy it now.

More to come ….

    More bad news today:

    Obama Leads in Florida, Ohio, Must-Win Battlegrounds for McCain

    By Catherine Dodge

    Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) — Barack Obama leads in Florida and Ohio, states Republican John McCain must win to capture the presidency, as voters prefer the Democratic presidential nominee’s personal traits and approach on the economy and health care.

    Obama, an Illinois senator, tops Arizona Senator McCain by 50 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in Florida, a Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll shows. He leads 49 percent to 40 percent in Ohio, as voters in the two states overwhelmingly rate domestic concerns as more important than national security.

    Voters choose Obama, 47, as the candidate best able to handle the financial crisis and health care. And by an almost 2- to-1 margin, they say the Democrat has “the better temperament and personality to be president.”

    “Domestic issues are the outstanding issues of the day, and Obama has been owning those,” says Susan Pinkus, the Los Angeles Times polling director. What is more, “voters are more comfortable with him” after his three debate performances.

    Florida voters by more than 2-to-1 say a candidate’s views on domestic issues such as health care and the economy are more important than positions on the war in Iraq and terrorism; voters in Ohio say the same by a 3-to-1 margin.

    Crucial States

    No Republican has won the White House without capturing Ohio, and Florida helped George W. Bush obtain two terms in the White House. The current U.S. electoral map, polls show, indicates it would be almost impossible for McCain, 72, to win without carrying those two states.

    In 2004, Bush won 286 Electoral College votes, including Ohio’s 20 and Florida’s 27. It takes 270 to win and if Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic nominee, had won either of those states, he would have defeated the incumbent president.

    Less than a week before the Nov. 4 election, Obama is running ahead in all the states that Kerry won, and is highly competitive in more than half a dozen states where Bush prevailed.

    There’s also a gender gap in the Democrat’s favor. Among women voters in Florida, Obama leads 51 percent to 41 percent; in Ohio, his lead is 54 percent to 38 percent. Obama has a small lead among men in Florida, while McCain is slightly ahead with male voters in Ohio.

    Temperament

    In Florida, 58 percent of voters say Obama has a better temperament to be president, compared with 30 percent for McCain. In Ohio, Obama beats McCain on that question 57 percent to 29 percent.

    “I find Obama to be pretty calm under any circumstance,” says poll respondent Donna Orcutt, 63, of Toledo, Ohio. “In the debates, some of the zingers he got he handled pretty good. If the object was to see if they could make him lose his temper, that didn’t happen.”

    Orcutt, a Democrat who is retired and used to work for a house-cleaning company and as a secretary, says Obama has a better understanding of the economy because he didn’t grow up in a privileged environment. McCain, she says, “is a very nice man,” though he has never had to worry “about where the next paycheck is coming from.”

    On the question of which candidate they trust to make the right decision about the economy, voters in Florida pick Obama over McCain by a 9-point margin, and in Ohio, the Democrat leads by 12 points.

    Health Care

    Obama does even better on the question of which candidate would better handle health care. In Florida, he is preferred by 52 percent of voters, compared with 34 percent for McCain; in Ohio, 54 percent pick Obama and 30 percent choose the Republican.

    The Democrat also is ahead with white working-class voters, who overwhelmingly favored his opponent for the Democratic nomination, Senator Hillary Clinton of New York. Obama gets the support of 52 percent of these voters in Ohio, compared with 38 percent for McCain; in Florida, this group is almost evenly split, with a slight edge for Obama.

    Even though Bush used victories in Ohio and Florida to build his winning coalition, more than seven in 10 voters in both states now disapprove of his job performance; more than eight in 10 say the country is on the wrong track.

    Seventy percent of voters in Florida and 62 percent in Ohio say the recent troubles in the economy have hurt their family’s financial situation.

    Change Agent

    Ohio and Florida voters also say the ability to bring change to Washington — a central theme of Obama’s campaign — is more important than having the most experience, which is one of McCain’s selling points.

    “I truly see Obama as someone who will come in with a less political and more intelligent problem-solving approach to really trying to address the critical problems,” says poll respondent Laurie Kadoch, 60, a Miami Democrat, who teaches at Florida International University College of Law.

    Bush’s record is hurting McCain in Ohio, where more than half of voters say the Republican will continue the current administration’s policies. Voters also are split on that question in Florida.

    As in previous polls, the bright spots for McCain are his ability to successfully handle the war in Iraq and protect the country from terrorism. The Arizona senator leads Obama in those categories in both states, the poll shows.

    “He does have a whole lot more experience than Obama does,” said Republican poll respondent Maria Lyle, 25, a stay- at-home mother from Jackson Center, Ohio. “His ideas line up more with how I feel. With the terrorism issue, I feel we do need to have our troops over there.”

    Palin Pick

    McCain’s choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate appears to be a drag on the ticket in both states. Less than half of voters in Florida and Ohio view her as qualified to be president. By comparison, more than seven in 10 voters in both states say Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden, a Delaware senator, is qualified to be president.

    The survey of 809 registered voters in Florida — including 639 likely voters — and of 816 registered voters in Ohio — including 644 likely voters — was conducted Oct. 25-27. The margin of sampling error in both states is plus or minus 3 percentage points among registered voters, and of plus or minus 4 points among likely voters.

    Thanks, Richardson!!!

    The bloomberg article you share may or may not reflect the accuracy of voter sentiment.

    But you know this.

    I predict that — IF your candidate does NOT succeed in buying the Presidency — you will see the most astounding STAND UP vote by legitimate American voters in history!!!
