Dear Friends

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood

Submitted by MarkRSM (United States), Jun 24, 2008 at 10:29

Dear Sir,

The question is who is Obama and what does he want? Our country has been around for 200 years, and we have changed many times, but change can be bad or good.

Please remember friends that Hitler was elected by the German people a, and George Washington was a man that owned slaves.

As Hitler was man that wanted change and was a man of the people for the people, it scares me greatly when I here people making the pledge to force change, and can get huge mobs to follow him.

George Washington was a slave owning General, that was able to lead our country into democracy by leaving office, something unheard of in his day.

While Obama is a very good speaker and can move a crowd, but does that make him qualified to lead the greatest nation that has ever existed. (please friends to not think the US is perfect, we are just better than all the rest).

Having a person come out of no where, without any track record and being made president, is normally not a wise thing. Let Obama prove himself as a leader first, and then we have something to judge him on.

Governors normally make the best presidents as they are forced to gain the skills required to have leadership on a large number of issues.

Our choices for elected office are lacking the specific knowledge and skills required to run our country, we are a country run by lawyers, for lawyers, and need to change this.

It has to start with the voters, we need to withhold our votes from anybody that lies to us, we need to stop looking at the soft issues that we all have, and look at people that can be leaders.

Jack Welsh would be perfect, but why does he not run? Why should he put himself through the pain of people looking at his life. We are not electing the head of our church; we are elected somebody to protect our way of life.

As we are only left with two choices, it seems that the only safe choice is McCain, at least he is not own by anybody, is disliked but all the people on the fringes, both the liberals and conservatives.

God Bless You

PS: The truth will set you free, but not get you elected.
