What do you know about Barack Obama?

8/13/2008:

It’s a fair guesstimate many Hobokenites that plan on voting in the 2008 Presidential Election, are big fans of Barack Obama.

Myself, am still undecided, and completely unhappy with how the whole Primary was run, but that’s another story. Additionally, me and my friends also have our opinions about how the national news media “shapes” individuals opinions, but that too, is a discussion for another day.

But deep within my vault of 100’s of thousands of emails, I stumbled across this email the other day, and I would like to hear the “COUNTER-POINT” from Barack Obama supporters in Hoboken:

The Truth about Obama?

You Don’t Know the Truth About Barack Obama Until You Read This Book

hoboken-barack-obama-book.jpg

  • Has any major presidential candidate received less critical examination than Barack Obama?
  • People blindly flock to him, the press fawns over him, but nobody questions his promises, plans, or past—until now.

In The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate, investigative journalist and National Review Online political reporter David Freddoso removes the gilt from the golden candidate, exposing Obama for who he really is: the #1 most liberal U.S. senator whose policies and inexperience could put our country in serious jeopardy.

Like any convincing argument, Freddoso supports The Case Against Barack Obama with sound evidence and facts. Delving into Obama’s legislative record, interviewing his colleagues, and analyzing Obama’s books and speeches, Freddoso does the research that the media has neglected. His conclusion? Obama the Orator is very different from Obama the Legislator. From his history of supporting corrupt Chicago politics to his extreme liberal voting record, The Case Against Barack Obama proves that Obama is not the politician of “change”, but the politician of status quo.

In this shocking exposé, Freddoso builds his case by revealing what the nightly news hasn’t told you, including:

  • Obama’s extensive connections to corrupt Chicago politics—while he claims to be a reformer
  • Obama’s plans to increase taxes—amid rising fuel and food prices, he just voted to raise taxes for anyone making more than $32,000
  • Obama’s dangerous mix of inexperience and poor judgment—evident in his shifting policy positions and the Rev. Wright scandal
  • Obama’s radical voting record—he repeatedly voted against legislation to protect babies born alive during failed abortions

No doubt there will be other books about Barack Obama, but The Case Against Barack Obama is the first comprehensive and critical look at the man who would be president. Freddoso builds a rock-solid case against Obama’s “bipartisan reformer” façade, going where most journalists—and books—refuse to tread.

Is the book accurate in any way? Or is this just PURE POLITICAL SPIN once again?

I appreciate any and all comments on this, as I want to know how you Obama fans might respond.

Release what? His transcripts from Harvard? High school? Kindergarden? Is the question about his citizenship now resolved since you and smarty keep dodging that one and bringing up other things that supposedly need substantiation?

[quote comment=”146233″]It’s incredible to me that after all the independent research that has been done on this, evidenced and clearly laid out on factcheck.org, that so many people are still out there spreading these rumors.

A couple of people above have listed as evidence to support their fallacy that there have not been released any records from his high school or college. Huh? Wasn’t he president of Harvard Law Review? Even if nothing existed how is it relevant to his citizenship?[/quote]
why doesn’t he just release it?

You don’t get it. Apparently, you just flat out refuse to let your mind get any handle around it.
McCain released a thousand, 1,000 pages of his medical records alone, Obama doesn’t release any records, even college records, nor his State Senate records. As a result, his vote in favor of post birth abortions was thought to be completely obscured. He went as far as to calling an Illinois nurse a liar who was disgusted by the practice. But then someone turned up a record Obama could not control and had an audio tape of the State Session with him speaking.

Not to worry. Most Americans still don’t know who this guy is and the media does but will do eveything possible to make sure they don’t “get it” either.

So sleep well.

You know guys, I’m just laying out what’s going on since I don’t think many of you are aware of the details that make it interesting for SCOTUS. People can assume that whatever document is good enough and ignore the rest. Given that Hawaii issues CoLB’s to anyone born on another land yet register such COLB for Hawaii (see the statute I posted above) gives rise to the question, which prompted the issue (insert all the other here), which led to the military case of quo warranto. Obama is within his full right to deny anyone access (the team of lawyers) to the long form vault Birth Certificate since there’s no rule saying that a CoLB (based upon a source document), even if issued to foreign born persons, is not good enough to qualify. And regarding the college records, that has to do with Occidental mostly (status registered) which again Obama is fully within his right to hire lawyers to block anyone from reviewing (I’m not arguing against). It’s a matter for the the court. I think I’ve been somewhat detailed in sharing with you how the matters are laid out to bare. At this point in time, as far as governance goes, all this only serves as a distraction to what’s going on with the spending and borrowing (see China’s recent resistance to buy any more U.S. debt). there are way bigger things to worry about than this. However, this is just one thing of many which happening. Until… Read more »

Yes, MR was great in the days leading up to election day, breathlessly hyping every anti-Obama tidbit on Drudge as the game-changer that would send McCain to the White House.
