Obama's Top Ten List

Barack Obama took his message to The Late Show with David Letterman last night. Here are the "Top Ten Surprising Things About Barack Obama":

(The Obama campaign posted the clip on YouTube.)

In the same spirit, the Republican National Committee has released its "Top Ten Reasons Barack Obama Isn't Ready to be Commander-in-Chief":

10. Thinks our enemies will be peaceful if only we invite them over for coffee.
9. Yes? No? Present.
8. $1.52 gas? Vote to suspend the gas tax. $4 gas? Support the gas tax.
7. MoveOn.Org & Howard Dean = Obama's "New Politics"
6. Chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Subcommittee in name only.
5. Guns are something voters "cling" to because they're bitter.
4. Religion is something voters "cling" to because they're bitter.
3. Withdraw from Iraq now, but return if al Qaeda in Iraq takes hold in Iraq.
2. "Friendly" with unrepentant terrorists like Bill Ayers.
1. Would rather eat a waffle than answer tough questions.

Hillary Clinton is the candidate that will take your Right to Arms. The Bush administration has laid the ground work.

Don't be fooled. Your economic power is being taken right now! The next wave is the peoples Arms. It looks good if a Democrat tries that. Thats were Hillary Clinton comes in.

Borack Obama is the only moderate candidate , standing for freedom! Americans should be skeptic of both Parties. Look for the individual that tells the truth now! Thats the only candidate that will have the mind to tell you the truth later, and act on it!

Unfortunately, Obama the man is nothing like Obama the image.

Axelrod's whole campaign for Obama depends on him being able to suppress the truth about Obama.

Every once in a while, Obama slips and his true thoughts come out.

The good news is that his record of racism and a radical far-left agenda is being exposed.

The majority of people in the US are in the center.

If Obama's the nominee, McCain will be the next President.

The good news is that the truth about Obama will come out before November and it will ensure Obama's defeat.

Obama could not get a job in ANY sensitive government facility or agency, were he applying for one. He could not pass the security clearance with his ties to known terrorists and radicals. He could not work as even a machinist for a defense contractor (as my husband does). Once the FBI did their background check, he'd be turned down cold. People get turned down for jobs in my husband's company all the time, for much less shady associates and connections than Obama has.

But he wants to be president? This guy is a sham.

Martha, I have said the same thing about the security clearance to Obama supporters time after time. My brother was vetted by the FBI for a job with NSA after Vietnam, and their investigation was rigorous and included all his friends and acquaintances, not just family. I remember my late father wondering if the family phones were tapped! Maybe that the Republican's secret weapon - sorry, Senator Obama, you can't pass the Top Secret secrurity clearance necessary to be POTUS!
