Why I won’t be voting for Barack

It will come as no great surprise to regular readers of this blog that I have decided to not vote for BH Obama next month. Since several respected Republican pundits and politicians have stirred the pot recently by making their reasoning for endorsing Obama part of the political discourse, I thought I might reveal some of the reasons why I am not supporting him, especially since McCain was not my first, or even my second choice in the Republican primary.

One of the great pleasures of self employment for me is the freedom to decide with whom to do business. In a small business, the need for trust is critical. I wouldn’t any more hire a known liar than I would risk a large inventory to a potential client without an unimpeachable letter of credit. Why would I jeopardize the financial security of those who depend on me by making such an immature business decision?

Further, I wouldn’t knowingly decide to depend upon a supplier with a track record of not doing what he says he will do. Choosing vendors and suppliers is as much about dependability and accountability as it is about cost.

Bottom line is this: since I get to choose, I choose not to do business with liars.

My vote is no less important.

On several occasions, Obama verbally committed to participating in public Presidential financial system, saying he would “aggressively pursue an agreement” with John McCain. In fact, he completed the MDN Questionnaire which included this question…

Question I-B:
If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?

OBAMA: Yes. …[snip]… Senator John McCain (r-AZ) has already pledged to accept this fundraising pledge. If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.

In his first major consequential decision, Obama chose expediency over integrity.

Obama lied. Credibility died. His refusal to keep his word is more than troubling. It is a window into his character. If he will lie about money, what else will he lie about?

I don’t do business with liars, nor will I vote for one.

The Arrogance Of Obama

Dangit, I tried. I was really trying to get away from the politics and get back to other issues. But THIS is just beyond believable. See the videos below.

I am THE ONE

I am THE ONE

I really cannot believe the arrogance of That One. Only a plumber? Who the HECK does he think he is? Oh yeah, he’s The MessiUH.

Plumbers do important work. Politicians work to be important . . .

And no, I’m not a plumber. But the plumbers that I do know make a lot of money.

Don’t forget this one!

McCain, Obama react to Georgia-Russia conflict

Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama gave their opinions today on the current conflict between Russia and Georgia, both expressing their hopes for a cease-fire and a negotiated settlement.

McCain … believes NATO’s North Atlantic Council should convene an emergency session to demand a cease-fire, and begin talking about a peacekeeping force for South Ossetia.

Obama thinks the U.N. Security Council should pass a resolution calling for an immediate end to the violence. He also thinks a U.N. mediator should join efforts to try to end the fighting. source

I suppose someone forgot to tell Mr. Obama that Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, with full veto power over any resolution.

He must be exhausted, lugging around that giant brain all the time.

More plagiarism from Obama

The “O” Salute left me wondering, “Where have I seen that before?”

Big hat-tip to n2l (via Gateway Pundit) for providing the answer: Trekkies will recognize the salute as a rip-off from “The Way To Eden”.

Obama plagiarizes Star Trek

Obama plagiarizes Star Trek

In this episode, a group of space hippies are in search of Utopian Bliss in a world known as “Eden.” All the cool space hippies use the “O” salute. And if you ain’t cool, you’re a “herbert.”

Their search for Utopia ends tragically, but as all good liberals know, the end results don’t matter as long as your intentions are good.

The Obama candidacy is turning into a bad joke, a Disneyesque re-creation of the worst of the 60’s.

Update: Man, talk about overconfidence.

Barry Certainly Is Getting Lots Of Letters These Days!


We already know that B-HO is the world leader in unsolicited campaign songs. Now it appears he is taking the lead in the candidate receiving the most unsolicited letters.
First, there is a post at Gates of Vienna, with a very reasonable and thoughtful letter to Barry, from a mother and daughter, that are Iranian-Americans.

In closing, Senator, even if you manage to dialogue with the ruling clergy in Iran, they will never keep their word. They are masters of deception, manipulation, rhetoric and spin. They are incapable of even honoring their own signatures, and refuse to abide by the terms and conditions of treaties that they themselves have agreed upon time and time again, as we have witnessed in their reactions to U.N. resolutions.

While the above letter is a sincere attempt to inform and sway B-HO from his statements to have “unconditional” talks with the President of Iran, it has a certain naivety. It doesn’t hit quite hard enough, and will most likely never receive a response.
However, our old friend iowahawk has been busy, and has found three letters to B-HO, that have received replies. Dear Barry…Relationship Advice From Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

1)Dear Barry:

I try to get along with the people in my neighborhood, but sometimes it can be difficult. Take for example my neighbor “Mahmoud.” Last weekend while I was seeding my lawn, he drove back and forth slowly in front of my house “flipping the bird” from his minivan, which is painted with pictures of bloody corpses and mushroom clouds and “welcome 12th Imam.”

2)Dear Barry:

My girlfriend and I have been talking about “taking it to the next level” and moving in together. The trouble is that she doesn’t know I live in a Satanist-only condo complex. To tell you the truth I’m not really into the whole Satanism thing, and moved into the complex mostly because they offered me a free 10-speed bike with a one year lease. I’m also a member of the condo board, which knocks an extra $100 off my monthly lease, but it also means I have to attend the weekly goat sacrifice rituals.

3)Throughout dinner Michelle continued hectoring my boss about how screwed up my company is, and too obsessed with profits, and how she and I were going to fix all that, and why everyone probably should all drop out of the corporate world and become artists. To top it all off, during dessert she brought out her black velvet paintings of Che Guevara.

Anyway, this week at work my CEO hasn’t returned any of my emails or phone messages. What should I do to get back on the career ladder?

Want to read the advice B-HO has to offer? Well, follow the little blue hyperlink, but I must caution against having any food or beverage near your computer. You know how hysterically funny iowahawk can be. If you don’t, you soon will.
