The Commander-in-Chief Threshold

Peter Hauck

Flanked by retired military heavyweights, Barack Obama explains why he is the most qualified candidate to be commander-in-chief.

Sound Bite: "The real commander-in-chief threshold doesn't have to do with years tallied up in Washington. It has to do with the judgment and vision that you will bring to the oval office."

Since when is the ability to handle a crisis is measured by the number of years spent as a Washington pol inside the beltway?

Obama consistently has shown good judgment, vision and intelligence which will be much more useful in the White house than years spent in Washington. Claiming "experience" is just another way of admitting you plan to keep doing things the way they have always been done.

There is zero correlation between length of experience in government and success as President. Some of the greatest failures as President had the most government experience, such as Hoover and Nixon, and to a lesser extent, Lyndon Johnson and Bush Sr. All had failed Presidencies. On the other hand, some with the least experience in Washington were the greatest successes, i.e. Lincoln, FDR, Kennedy.

Barack Obama's church reprinted a manifesto by Hamas.!!
Rev. Wright gave it a new title, "A Fresh View of the PLO/Hamas Arab Muslim Nazi Struggle."
There is no doubt that by reprinting this Hamas manifesto on the church bulletin, Wright supports this terror group.
The article
1.defended terrorism as LEGITIMATE resistance,
2.refused to recognize the right of Israel to exist
3.compared the terror group's official charter - which calls for the murder of Jews - to America's Declaration of Independence!!
The Hamas piece was published on the "Pastor's Page" of the Trinity United Church of Christ newsletter reserved for Rev. Jeremiah Wright . Google Obama's church, pastor's page, July 22, 2007)
Marzook, the author of this article, is a known terrorist and created an extensive Hamas network in the United States

Hamas is responsible for multiple acts of terrorist including suicide bombings and rocket launchings against civilian populations. It is listed as a terrorist group by the U.S.

Esraeli security officials have expressed concern about Robert Malley, AN ADVISER TO OBAMA, who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

Barack Obama cannot just say "I didn't" know on this. And a "great speech" won't do either.
Obama is compromised on so many different levels that he simply cannot be trusted. His middle name should no longer be ignored. (well, didn't he say "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people"? If you don't believe this, Google the statement. Didn't he say in Audacity of Hope, "I will stand with the Muslims?")

Barack Hussein Abdul al-Majid al-Obama for President of The United States! LOL
