143 Days Experience and he wants to be President?

Just how much national experience does Barack Obama have in terms of actual working days?

Not much.

The following is taken from a blog post by Cheri Jacobus at:

"From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United States Senator, to the time he announced he was forming his presidential exploratory committee he acquired 143 days in the Senate. That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.

After 143 days of actual work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander in Chief, to fill the shoes of Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan."

"143 days...Jeepers, I've had stuff in my freezer for longer than that!"

"In contrast, Senator John McCain's 26 years in Congress, 22 years of military service including over 5 years as a guest of the North Vietnamese Communists as a Prisoner Of War at the Hanoi Hilton seem more impressive than ever."

"Why at 71, John McCain may be just hitting his peak."

Think about it.
Do you really know who Barack Obama is?
This man who would be King err...President?

Please take the time to read these quotes from Obama's books. These are his own words.

  • From "Dreams of my Father": "I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites".
  • From "Dreams of my Father": "I found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race".
  • "Dreams of my Father": It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names".
  • Again, from "Dreams of my Father": "I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself. The attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela".

And perhaps the the most disturbing of all:

  • From "Audacity of Hope": "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

As much as I was against Hillary Clinton and her policies, I believe that she had, at least from her political point of view, the best interests of America in her poor, broken socialist heart.

I believe Barack Obama does not. I also believe Obama does not have the mentality of a person who should be elected as President of the United States.

As far as I'm concerned, his past does not pass the "smell test".

Something is rotten with Obama. We'll find out if we just keep peeling back his layers like an onion and I don't want to wait and see how bad it stinks up America.
