Geraldine Ferraro and Barack Obama

Geraldine Ferraro, of all people, has caused a stir by saying that Barack Obama would not be where he is today (frontrunner for Democratic nomination for President of the United States) if he were not black.  Ms. Ferraro, despite a lack of obvious qualifications, was Walter Mondale's chioice ofr the Vice Presidential nomination way back when (Mondale lost in a landslide).

Would Geraldine Ferraro have been chosen to be the Vice Presidential nominee if she were not a woman?  This is why Gerlaldine Ferraro's comments about Barack Obama make one think of glass houses and stones. For that matter, would Hillary Clinton be where she is if she were not Bill Clinton's WIFE?

Botton line:  Barack Obama is objectively not qualified to be President of the United States.  He does not have the experience.  He, himself, said that very thing (inclulding that he would not be "comfortable" asking people to vote for someone who had just become a Senator) when he was asked about nation aspirations after his election to the Senate from Illinois.  Race may have something to do with why the media does not seem to recognize that, but it is hardly necessary to talk about race.  

You should simply consider Barack Obama on his merits.  On that basis, he fails to have the qualifications to be considered for President.

The fairy tale is over.

Obama's pixie dust is wearing off.

A few in the corporate media are finally starting to reveal some details about this man's judgment.

I speak of Obama's long association with his spiritual advisor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Obama says he didn't know Wright was far, far left. While that is hard to believe, it says that Obama is not a very discerning judge of character. And it shows poor judgment for a presidential candidate to allow such an extremist to serve on his campaign.

Rev. Wright says AIDS was created by the US government to kill black people.

Come on!

"I didn't know about that man, Rev. Wright." Is that what Obama is telling us?

But there is more to come.

Obama's friend, William Ayers, is an unrepentent terrorist.

An Obama fund raiser, Rashid Khalidi, supports terrorists.

Wait till these tidbits come out. Maybe they won't release them till after Obama wins the nomination.

These associations with radicals show that Obama does not yet have the judgment nor the experience to be at the top of the ticket.

mondale lost because he told the truth. reagan won because he lied.
