all the facets of Obama that the mainstream media ignores

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by larry (United States), Oct 23, 2008 at 13:47

The title of the article echoes a thought I've had for several months. Contrary to the MSM, associations and record matter A LOT, and the rhetoric used to market yourself to the voters is much less telling about how you would govern.

Aside from Obama's extremely troubling and scary ties to Islamists, anti-Semites and terrorists, his domestic policy seems disastrous. If he makes illegal immigrants citizens, then provides free health care and checks from IRS to them and the rest of those who don't pay taxes, and pays for this by soaking those who pay taxes, how long will it take until the economy is completely destroyed in a viscous cycle?

As money is taken from businesses and the rich (those who employ), more people will be out of work, living on the public dole, and a shrinking group of "the rich" will have to support more and more IRS payees. By the time Obama is done, very little capital will remain in our capitalist system. Raiding the piggy banks of the rich, the same people who already lost in the trillions in the stock market and housing crash,, and already pay most of the tax, supporting our substantial existing social net, will lead to a much poorer USA. I'm not rich, just and a patriotic American and a Jewish American concerned about his anti-Semitic associations.

Journalists that are trying to inform the public about these legitimate concerns seem to only preach to the choir. Since the MSM is completely biased and refuses to touch on these scary issues, when the conservative press raises these issue, it's validity is completely rejected by so many MSM viewers. The MSM is abusing its power over their viewers by ignoring all the ugly facets of Obama and if elected, the MSM will be with Obama every step of the way as he pushes this country toward socialism and realligns our foreign policy.
