which is very much worth reading.
"He's hard left.
"He wants the marginal rate on total federal taxes, including his
social security tax hike, to immediately rise at least 57% on the
highest earners. Obama wants to raise taxes even in a weak economy,
though this is a recipe not just for recession but worse. Obama also
wants to raise taxes on dividend income and to return the death tax to
its highs of eight years ago.
"Obama has proposed more than a trillion dollars in new spending.
"Obama wants to cut and run from Iraq, with withdrawals of
crucial forces beginning immediately upon his entry into office. Obama
has never met one on one with General Petraeus and has not been to Iraq
in more than 900 days. He is indifferent to the incredible progress
made by our troops and the Iraqi Defense Forces and the Iraqi
government in the last 18 months.
"He supports the decision extending habeas rights to Gitmo
detainees and he thinks the most liberal member of the Supreme Court,
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a great model for future Supreme Court
"Obama supports gay marriage, and opposes the California
constitutional amendment to restore marriage to the definition
overturned by a 4-3 vote of the California Supreme Court in May. He
supports abortion on demand, including partial birth abortion.
"Obama is not a strong friend of Israel. He spent 20 years in a
church that was openly hostile to Israel, and he reversed himself on
Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel after one day of criticism
by Palestinians. "Obama is running a dirty campaign, and the serial assaults on
John McCain's service, most visibly by Wesley Clark but by many others
closely associated with Obama, is repulsive. These are not hits by
independent 527s but by close associates and advisors of Obama.
"Obama's close friends, mentors and associates are deeply
troubling: the radical pastor Jeremiah Wright, the unrepentant
terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the convicted swindler
Tony Rezko, and now a long line of "public housing developers" who took
the money and failed to deliver on promises of safe and secure housing
for Obama's poorest constituents.
"Obama's deal with the Teamsters to end federal oversight of the union smells very bad indeed and
telegraphs the sort of cronyism we could expect from an Obama
Adminsitration. Obama's mentor and real estate partner is Rezko, who helped the Obama's buy their home, a home on which the Obamas received a mortgage that looks to many like a sweetheart deal.
"Obama, like the other leaders of the Triple D Democrats --the
Don't Drill Democrats-- doesn't care about the price of gas, and
refuses every initiative to increase supply and thus bring that price
"His crowds are enormous and his coffers overflowing, the
products of a highly energized and vitriolic left that expects
--believes it will be owed, in fact-- the spoils of the election. If
Obama wins, the sharpest lurch left in American history is ahead of us.
Barack Obama is not only the most radical nominee of a major
American political party in history, he is also the least prepared and
the least informed. He has spent less than four years inside of the
United States Senate, and much of those years have been spent away from
his job and away from the capital he wants to lead. But he is protected
and his campaign nurtured by a MSM that swooned for him long ago. The
prolonged and serious scrutiny of his background and his proposals will
not be forthcoming in any consistent way between now and November."
