The "fair assessment" that would be levelled by the democratics and their base lefties.

I merely imagine here what the story would be from the punditocracy of democratics if Obama were a right wing neocon:

" Obama was raised a Muslim in his schooling and prayed in the Mosque on Friday with his drunken, cheating, womanizing, Islamic war soldier Stepfather. His Mother played so little a role in forming him that she was not even listed on school records. Perhaps she was thrust under a buhrka those years, as Obama's stepfather and direct adult authority strode about in a bloody murderous war rampage, and took Obama to the Mosque to justify the death and jihad he particiapated in. One wonders how much murder was justified in the name of Islam to young Obama.

What we have here is another disturbed presidential candidate who may wind up in a Freudian quandry trying to please his two male Islamic Father figures, one with the bloodstains of war and death on his hands. Could this explain Obama's grouse commentary about invading nuclear armed Pakistan ? Would his Mosque trips with his stepfather in his youth then be justified, would his stepdaddy "be proud" ?

How much is his current "Trinity" black power church just an extension of his stepfathers melding of his soldiering war acts with the religous Moqsue prayers they both spake on Fridays ? Is the new validation of a war, in this case, a domestic war of race power, the current result, and does Barak obtain personal satisfacton in knowing he has pleased his stepfather with carrying on a family tradition, even now ?

All we need is another war mongering president with Islamic roots, that was taught at a very young age that soldiering in a war for a nation is part and parcel of connecting to one's personal faith at the building of worship. This new type of paternal pleasing might arise in the form of an all out assault into Pakistan, now a nuclear armed nation, perhaps already an adversary in the larger sense of the word, and soon, if Obama is elected, to be a full blown nuclear enemy engaged in war with the USA. Maybe this is the scenario by which Obama can prove his manhood to his stepfather who molded him in his formative years, and simultaneously reject his foriegn world and embrace the other portion of his new Church, militant black power, which might stretch dangerously across the globe, instead of being confined to domestic disputes.

I thank the various raging democratics and their whole constitutency for my training in assessing things fairly above, over these last years of the Bush presidency. Thank you so much, now we can also see who you have as a selection for leadership.
