It appears more and more likely that Barack Obama will be the Democratic nominee for President. Charisma and eloquence are nice qualities to possess, but this is not a man who is ready to be Commander-in-Chief. Look at some of his positions:
--Earlier this week, Obama voted against the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This would severely undermine our intelligence gathering capabilities in the war against radical Islamic extremists.
--Obama has voted against a bill protecting homeowners from being sued by burglars they shoot in their own homes.
--Obama would implement the largest tax increase in American history - by not making the Republican tax cuts permanent.
--Obama has voted against Illinois's version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. This act is designed to protect those babies who survive an attempted abortion.
The first of these four makes our homeland weaker. The second makes our Constitution weaker. The third, our economy weaker. And the fourth makes us all weaker. I don't know about you, but I will not stand idly by and watch this man and his radical leftist agenda get elected to our highest office. Let's just say that when Hillary Clinton is the more conservative Democrat, we should all be afraid!
Just as dangerous are the Democratic members of the House and Senate who agree with him. Teddy Kennedy is the Chairman of the Senate Health Committee. Barbara Boxer is the Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee. Barney Frank is Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. And Charlie Rangel is writing our tax code as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.
