The Audacity of Truth

Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance

Submitted by Jack Cooper (United States), Oct 23, 2008 at 19:10

The greatest single threat to Obamphiles for nearly a year has been a percieved conspiracy of truth, and your article will become part of that conspiracy. Ever since it came out last year that Obama was a Muslim to Christian convert who did his best to delay, hide or obfuscate this fact, the Obamaphiles have had only one weapon to counter-attack: to lob word bombs such as "Smear Campaign" at its sources.

If you do a search of "Obama" and "Smear" you'll see that over 2.5 million results show up, all of them attacking those who would dare present truthful biographical facts, and none of them denying the facts. After all, what else could they do to fight a disclosed basic fact that might undermine the credibility of their new favorite son except to call it a "conspiracy," "dirty trick," or "smear"? This is surely the reaction of children. John Kerry was the first of these Democratic children to cry "smear" as he jumped aboard the Obama wagon by giving his support; the rest hopped on board in due time.

In reality, their fraudulent and reactionary defensiveness turned this little-known background detail into an expose'. It not only exposed one of the little realized secrets of who or what Obama was, but it also exposed how deceptive and unconcerned the Democrats have become. Instead of doing a self-review of their candidate, all they could think to do was counter-attack – to attack the attackers instead of looking in the mirror.

Since last year, there has been a continual flow of more damaging revelations, like the ones in your article. Shortly after the world became aware of Obama's Muslim education, there were revelations about his active support of the Muslim-supported opposition in Kenya, headed by his cousin.

There were revelations about his church and it's black-African centrism, with it's anti-white and anti-American damnations by its reverand. There was the even his Christian church's praising and rewarding of Louis Farrakhan, a black Muslim leader and the fact that Muslims are proudly accepted by this church, with membership requiring merely a two week, few-hour study time. Is it surprising that 90% of blacks said they would vote for Obama - even Republicans.

None of these normally destructive truths has done more than bounce off Obama. America, like the successful movie of the same name, has become "Dumb and Dumber." It has the attention span of a 15-second drug commercial and regardless of how ugly, dangerous, and truthful the allegations are, the Democrats can respond with only one moronic chant: "move on." What they're really saying and thinking is "truth cannot stop us!"

This article, like the rest of the now historical truths about Obama, and what he really means by "hope" and "dreams," will be added to the list of "smears."
