From the National Review Online comes a great article on what will happen when Obama wins. This is a scary premise that someone like Mr. Obama will become President and also Commander in Chief.
Here are some highlights that need to be pointed out over and over again:
And thus the Democratic party is about to nominate a far left candidate in the tradition of George McGovern, albeit without McGovern’s military and political record. The Democratic party is about to nominate a far-left candidate in the tradition of Michael Dukakis, albeit without Dukakis’s executive experience as governor. The Democratic party is about to nominate a far left candidate in the tradition of John Kerry, albeit without Kerry’s record of years of service in the Senate. The Democratic party is about to nominate an unvetted candidate in the tradition of Jimmy Carter, albeit without Jimmy Carter’s religious integrity as he spoke about it in 1976. Questions about all these attributes (from foreign policy expertise to executive experience to senatorial experience to judgment about foreign leaders to the instructors he has had in his cultural values) surround Barack Obama. And the Democratic party has chosen him.
Think about it. Someone with less religious integrity then Jimmy Carter. Someone without a military tradition and political record like McGovern. Someone who doesn’t have executive experience.
Seriously what leadership qualities besides “Change” and “Hope” does Mr. Obama have? He was Senator of the United States, but spent most of his time campaigning for President. I hope Mrs. Clinton wins.
