Wake Up Voters

Dear Editor,

Barack Obama has many troubling long-term associations with people who exhibit behavior antithetical to the interest of the United States and its citizens. His long-term (20+ years) association with openly anti-Semitic clergy (Wright, Phileger, Farrahan), I have to consider that Obama support for Israel may be less than 100 percent and that his actions may give aid and comfort to Muslim extremists to the region.

Let's not forget his lack of leadership on any major issue and his willingness to "go along to get along" history. The presidents of the US cannot simply vote "Present" when serious matters erupt, serious matters which require a decision, rather than a smile and some words about hope.

And for those of you who remain undecided, I would point out that Barack Obama's own VP choice, Joseph Biden, has said that Obama was not qualified to be president, that the presidency does not lend itself to on-the-job-training, and most importantly, that it is likely that Obama will be tested by a "manufactured" international crisis ginned-up-only to test his mettle. And even more chilling is Biden's remark that the citizens of the United States may believe that Obama's response was inappropriate and asking us in advance to continue supporting him. Is Joe Biden trying to tell us something before it's too late? Consequences for the next four years could be catastrophic?

Let's not forget about Michelle Obama's remark "for the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country," she told a Milwaukee crowd twice. I certainly don't want such a vain pessimist as First Lady.
