Obama’s Legacy as a Community Organizer

Barack Obama often refers to his days as a “community organizer” in Chicago. But what did he do there?

One area where he focused was Grove Parc in Chicago. In addition to his work as a community organizer, Obama spent four years in a law firm offering neighborhood economic development, as well as eight years as Grove Parc’s Representative in the Illinois State Senate, and his US Senate term to date.

23 years after Obama started helping the neighborhood, it’s said that “it’s not safe to live here.”

Grove Parc was Obama’s proving ground, and after all of his TLC, it remains a symbol of blight.

If he can’t change a neighborhood over a couple decades, how can he change a country in four years?

Obama Lying by Omission

August 7, 2008 · Filed Under Energy & Environment, John McCain, News ·  

The latest attack ad from Barack Obama on John McCain criticizes McCain for accepting donations from “big oil” and voting for legislation that benefits the oil companies.

The Obama attack ad finishes by saying, “After one President in the pocket of big oil, we can’t afford another.”

But what was most interesting about the advertisement was what Obama didn’t say.

You see, the way he negatively characterized John McCain could just as easily describe Obama and his dealings with the oil companies.

“Barack Obama’s latest negative attack ad shows his celebrity is matched only by his hypocrisy,” McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said in a statement. He claimed that Obama himself has taken nearly $400,000 in contributions from employees of oil and natural gas companies, and added that Obama voted yes on a 2005 energy bill that gave tax breaks to oil companies, a measure that McCain rejected, according to NationalJournal.com.

So, I guess by the logic of Senator Obama, he is also “in the pocket of big oil.”

Barack Obama Losing the Literate Vote

August 7, 2008 · Filed Under News ·  

The Presidential election would be won in a landslide by John McCain if the vote were based on non-fiction book sales at Amazon.com.

Currently, the #1 bestseller is The Obama Nation by Jerome R Corsi and the #3 bestseller is The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate by David Freddoso.

Here is a description of The Obama Nation…

In this thoroughly researched and documented book, the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry explains why the extreme leftism of an Obama presidency would leave the United States weakened, diminished and divided, why Obama must be defeated, and how he can be.

And this is the description for The Case Against Barack Obama:

He’s the media’s darling, the fresh face of the Democratic ticket. But what does Barack Obama really stand for–and will his extreme liberal agenda and complete inexperience in global affairs endanger the country? That’s what David Freddoso, investigative reporter and National Review Online columnist, examines in The Case Against Barack Obama. In this shocking exposé, Freddoso explores the reality behind the rhetoric, the plans behind the promises, and the faults behind the facade, revealing:

  • Why Obama’s inexperience and extreme left-wing voting record is more dangerous than any threat we face today
  • Why the Rev. Wright debacle reveals Obama’s poor judgment of character and deceitful nature
  • Why it won’t be politics of change with President Obama–it will be liberal politics as usual

Freddoso exposes the real Barack Obama: a typical big-government politician, the #1 most liberal U.S. senator, and–if he were commander in chief–a serious threat to our national security.

The two books are #8 and #16 respectively in the overall Amazon.com bestseller list.

Cindy McCain and her daughter Meghan recently took a trip to Southeast Asia to visit with some charities and the people they are helping.

It’s an interesting glimpse into the potential First Lady.

Obama’s Ludacris Politics

August 5, 2008 · Filed Under John McCain, News, Opinion ·  

The eleventh installment of RedHatBlueHat featured Mike Allen, Shawn Collins, Todd Crawford, Jeff Doak, Sam Harrelson, and Tim Jones (until a storm knocked him off).

This installment tackled the latest song to drop by rapper Ludacris in honor of Obama, Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska facing a seven-count indictment accusing him of accepting financial gifts that weren’t reported on his financial disclosure forms, and the rumors of a John Edwards love child.

The modest growth of the U.S. economy for the second quarter was debated, as well as a heated discussion on the torture of terrorists.

The RedHatBlueHat crew also talks about whether they’d like to have a beer with Barack Obama or John McCain, the issue of Obama cancelling a visit to wounded U.S. troops in Germany, and what there is to like about John McCain.

Finally, the chat turned to whether polls are accurate at this point, and speculation over Vice-President prospects on both sides.

Episode 11 runs 75 minutes of ludicrous political banter.

Barack Obama and Ludacris

Do Democrats Care About the Gas Crisis?

August 5, 2008 · Filed Under Energy & Environment, News ·  

Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi say they want change - they want to fix the energy crisis.

But if that’s the case, I think Obama out to interrupt Nancy’s R&R to hell her to bring Congress back to begin a process of getting an off-shore drilling bill across the floor of the House.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s because the media ignored it.

Basically, Republicans wanted to get things moving on an off-shore drilling bill, and Nancy Pelosi abruptly closed down the House of Representatives for summer break.

They won’t be back until September 8.

I guess Nancy has more pressing issues like her tanking book sales.

Obama - don’t you hold any sway with the Speaker of the House? We need help.

McCain Leads Obama in Rasmussen Poll

August 4, 2008 · Filed Under John McCain, News ·  

The Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Barack Obama and John McCain in a dead heat with 44% of the vote each, according to Rasmussen.

However, when “leaners” are included, it’s McCain 47% and Obama 46%.

Last week at this time, Obama was up by three-percentage points and the candidates were even among unaffiliated voters.

As of today, John McCain leads 52% to 37% among unaffiliateds.

But look on the bright side, Obama supporters, he would win if he were running for the Prince of Berlin.

Obama Doesn’t Think John McCain is Racist

August 3, 2008 · Filed Under John McCain, News ·  

In response to criticism over playing the race card, Obama declared yesterday that John McCain isn’t racist, according to the AP.

“In no way do I think John McCain’s campaign was racist. I think they are cynical. Their team is good at creating distractions and engaging in negative attacks.”

First, the comment from Obama about how he doesn’t “look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills” wasn’t the first time he suggested Team McCain would go racist.

Back on Friday, June 20 at a Florida fund-raiser, Obama proclaimed that Republicans will make the Presidential contest about race.

Second, the recent comment from Obama that caused the race card dust-up was a cynical bash on McCain in itself:

“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name, you know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

Can Obama be more ironic with his attacks while he simultaneously plays the victim?

Obama Flip Flops and Now Favors Off-Shore Drilling?

August 2, 2008 · Filed Under Energy & Environment, John McCain, News ·  

Barack Obama stated yesterday he would be willing to open Florida’s coast for more oil drilling, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Back in June 2008, Obama stated, “We can’t drill our way out of the problem.”

Yet now he’s open to drilling our way out of the problem?

In his interview with The Palm Beach Post, Obama stated, “My interest is in making sure we’ve got the kind of comprehensive energy policy that can bring down gas prices.”

I guess Obama had some time to reflect on the announcement by President George W. Bush, on July 14, 2008, that he would lift the ban on offshore drilling.

After the announcement from President Bush indicated to the world that the U.S. was prepared to take action on the escalating gas prices, the prices of crude oil plummeted.

Crude oil had traded as high as $147 a barrel on July 11. This month, crude oil was at $124.08 a barrel.

So basically, Obama is on the same page with Bush and McCain now?
