A little weekend reading… Okay, a lot of weekend reading… especially if you connect the dots.
I think I hear it… the faint call is becoming louder: … – – – … is becoming …- – -…
I started thinking along this line recently as I have been thinking more and more: dot, dot, dot… connect the dots. American people: dot, dot, dot… connect the dots! The I considered Morse Code and the sound of dots and dashes or dits and dah’s. So, in these days, if people are of a mind to hear, they’ll hear the dits…and the connecting of the dots will soon sound like: ditditdit dahdahdah ditditditdit. That’s SOS in Morse Code.
So, I posted the link to the Al Smith dinner last night, I thought I’d go ahead and post a few links… a few connect the dots links. Yes… they are connect-the-dots and see the links to Barack Obama. I’m thinking that one of the worst things for a candidate is: history. It could also be the best thing for a candidate, too, for that matter. Either way, historical record is friend or foe… Dot. Dot. Dot.
Dreams From My Father… is BarakO really the author as the title byline says? (Dot) Or is someone else? (Dot) And is that someone else a friend of BarakO or is he just a colleague? You know… someone to whom BarakO really has no real tie. (Dot) If the American public would have the time or take the time to review or compare writing styles as Jack Cashill has, they’d surely see a stunning connection and would have to face the question and come to the conclusion that Barak Obama’s literary style so strikingly reminiscent of William ‘Bill’ Ayers. (Dot)
The socialistic plan for America. (Dot) Is it even remotely possible for 95% of the population to ‘get a taxcut’ considering… well, read on…
Obama’s 95% Illusion – WSJ.com: “It’s a clever pitch, because it lets him pose as a middle-class tax cutter while disguising that he’s also proposing one of the largest tax increases ever on the other 5%. But how does he conjure this miracle, especially since more than a third of all Americans already pay no income taxes at all? There are several sleights of hand, but the most creative is to redefine the meaning of ‘tax cut.’ For the Obama Democrats, a tax cut is no longer letting you keep more of what you earn. In their lexicon, a tax cut includes tens of billions of dollars in government handouts that are disguised by the phrase ‘tax credit.'”
[can anyone say: socialism? (ditditditdahdahdahditditdit]
“Here’s the political catch. All but the clean car credit would be “refundable,” which is Washington-speak for the fact that you can receive these checks even if you have no income-tax liability. In other words, they are an income transfer — a federal check — from taxpayers to nontaxpayers. Once upon a time we called this “welfare,” or in George McGovern’s 1972 campaign a “Demogrant.” Mr. Obama’s genius is to call it a tax cut.” — the Amateur Economist (Dot)
And what really, does BarakO say to the “Joe the Plumber” and the rest of the regular Joe’s of the US –Rick Moran, American Thinker (Dot)
And so… what else is there about Ayers and his ties to him that BarakO doesn’t want the general public to see? Connect, connect, connect.
And then there’s that very strange (but not so strange, and certainly not surprising) (little m)messiah factor. Here and here. (Dot. Dot.) And then… let us not forget that a man is often known or understood by the company he keeps (or kept). (Dot. Dot. Dot.)And then, don’t forget earlier BarakO ties. (Dot)With the Washington Post endorsing BarakO and the NY Times apparently doing so in the upcoming Sunday edition… it seems the man’s got it made.
“THE NOMINATING process this year produced two unusually talented and qualified presidential candidates. There are few public figures we have respected more over the years than Sen. John McCain. Yet it is without ambivalence that we endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president.
The choice is made easy in part by Mr. McCain’s disappointing campaign, above all his irresponsible selection of a running mate who is not ready to be president. It is made easy in larger part, though, because of our admiration for Mr. Obama and the impressive qualities he has shown during this long race. Yes, we have reservations and concerns, almost inevitably, given Mr. Obama’s relatively brief experience in national politics. But we also have enormous hopes.
Mr. Obama is a man of supple intelligence, with a nuanced grasp of complex issues and evident skill at conciliation and consensus-building.” —NYP
Ahhhh……….. that nuanced grasp. (Dot)
“…having to do with keeping America safe in a dangerous world, it is a closer call. Mr. McCain has deep knowledge and a longstanding commitment to promoting U.S. leadership and values. But Mr. Obama, as anyone who reads his books [[who writes his books?? (Dot) ]] can tell, also has a sophisticated understanding of the world and America’s place in it.” [Riiight.] (Dot)
The Washington Post article concludes in its defense to endorse Barak Obama (over the qualified but disappointing McCain),
“ANY PRESIDENTIAL vote is a gamble, and Mr. Obama’s résumé is undoubtedly thin. We had hoped, throughout this long campaign, to see more evidence that Mr. Obama might stand up to Democratic orthodoxy and end, as he said in his announcement speech, “our chronic avoidance of tough decisions.”
“But Mr. Obama’s temperament is unlike anything we’ve seen on the national stage in many years. He is deliberate but not indecisive; eloquent but a master of substance and detail; preternaturally confident but eager to hear opposing points of view. He has inspired millions of voters of diverse ages and races, no small thing in our often divided and cynical country. We think he is the right man for a perilous moment.”
… uh, Okay… what did they just say? (Dot)
