The Emperor's Newest Clothes

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Oct 23, 2008 at 17:34

Once again, Dr. Pipes has produced proof that Barak Obama would be a poor choice for the leader of our country. Not only has Obama brushed aside any truth about his many Islamic connections, he now says he has "never been a Muslim" . The supporters of Obama do not or cannot see the truth about this man, that he represents all that intelligent, thinking people fear: a brand of naiivity blended with a stubbornness to adhere to his agenda of allowing his cronies, the far-left, criminals and Islamists, to influence his policies.

The greatest fear is that this man will win the presidential election, but thankfully we are not living in a dictatorship. The checks and balances of our country's constitution should guarantee that any president cannot simply make a decree as a king or dictator would and have it obeyed without protest. However, that doesn't negate the fact that so many of Obama's followers worship him unconditionally, and that's really scary. It seems that anything negative this man does is swept under the carpet, and anything positive is magnified a hundred times. Messiah? Such blasphemy does not go unnoticed by God. Blind admiration by the masses only makes the emperor's clothes seem real; unfortunately an orator of great talent can often tip the balance.

Let us hope for a miracle in the next two weeks.
