I Can't Believe We're Going to Elect This Guy!

It's partly what we don't know about Barack Obama, and partly also what we do know, that leaves me astounded that the American people might elect Barack Obama to the White House.

Larry Sabato, the University of Virginia political scientist, tells us that there are "basic, pro-Democratic fundamentals" in place that should make a Democratic victory a certainty, and as the title of his article indicates, the dam may be breaking for Obama.

As for one of those disturbing things we know about Obama, Dick Morris and Eileen McGann put the Ayers question in a nut shell. (Oh, sure. Take that as a pun.)

So let’s sum up Obama’s Chicago connections. His chief financial supporter was Tony Rezko, now on his way to federal prison. His spiritual adviser and mentor was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, of “God damn America” fame. And the guy who got him his only administrative job and put him in charge of doling out $50 million is William Ayers, a terrorist who was a domestic Osama bin Laden in his youth. ...

Why did Obama put up with Ayers? Because he got a big job and $50 million of patronage to distribute to his friends and supporters in Chicago. Why did he hang out with Jeremiah Wright? Because he was new in town, having grown up in Hawaii and Indonesia and having been educated at Columbia and Harvard, and needed all the local introductions he could get to jump-start his political career. Why was he so close to Rezko? Because he funded Obama’s campaigns and helped him buy a house for $300,000 less than he otherwise would have had to pay.

Not a good recommendation for a president.

This should run in commercials in every swing state.
