This is my effort to share my thoughts with readers about concerns facing our country today.  I believe there is a good chance my grandchildren may be the first generation in the history of this great country not to have a better standard of living than their parents. If so, our generation is to blame. The clock is running out for damage control. .

Obama- ATalking Head

Actors and Newscasters are really good at reading a teleprompter or speaking lines. They can be very convincing. But, in most cases they are an empty shell. Look good, sound good, but not capable of delivering your morning paper. Remember the 5 minutes of U-Tube with Dan Rather deciding whether to have his collar up or down?

Are we about to elect a talking head and an empty shell as president?

People are now asking what has Obama ever done? Well, he organized the black community. That's the answer you get when you ask an Obama supporter. You get no answer from Obama himself since to my knowledge he has never been asked nor answered that question. My research shows he's a career campaigner. Basically, that's been his life. Working to get elected to a higher office. When are the news media going to take off the gloves and ask this question?

Next, what does he stand for? My opinion is Marxism in it's purest form. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's like the what have you done question, it doesn't get asked. If you go by his sketchy voting record in the Illinois senate and the U. S. Senate, he stands for everything liberal. More liberal , the better the likes it. But, wouldn't it be nice to know what he really stands for? Change doesn't get it anymore.

We have a whole capitol full of scumbags like John Edwards and Larry Craig. Look right into the camera and lie their ass off. You want more of these? Don't we have enough? Edwards was probably headed for the Vice Presidency. Dennis Miller says he needs to see an optometrist. Character doesn't count here anymore. Nor does integrity. We don't vet the candidates, we just take them for face value. Why not have the FBI do a background check on everyone who runs for national office?Publish the results.

Am I supposed to believe that Obama is a family man who is above reproach? Let's see, he is part and parcel of the Chicago Machine. The same machine that has seem a dozen aldermen and alderwomen go to jail in the last decade. He is a friend of Tony Rezko, who bought him a piece of property. Tony is in jail.  Not to mention Bill Ayers who hates America. How about Reverend Wright?

Is this country off the tracks? We are seriously going to elect a man president who has never done anything in his entire life except go to school and campaign? A man whose beliefs we don't know? A man who hangs with bad people who dislike our country? A man we know almost nothing about?

I would find out more about a contractor to do a big project at my house than America knows about Obama. 

Maybe this is why I'm worried about my grandchildren. The youngest grandchild, by the way, is 2 years old. By the time she is 8 she will be a minority in America. There will be more Hispanic children 8 and under than white children. As she grows up will we be more like Mexico than America?

Stupid is as stupid does to quote Forrest Gump. Boy, are we stupid.
