Beyond the Wright matter, it is becoming increasingly apparent that if Democrats nominate Obama, they will be selecting a far left ideologue who masks his views with a disarming presentation.
Astute Illinois conservative blogger Tom Roeser sums it up well.
But lurking outside the ivy halls is the reality that the "National Journal" marked Obama the most liberal senator of allâ€¦that he favors higher income taxes, higher Social Security taxes and higher corporate taxes. That he supports enormous hikes in domestic spending, far greater regulation by government of the economy: which remains for the public to be toldâ€¦a massive increase of government control over health care. Strong opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement: in fact he is a protectionist.
He stands supportive of infanticide by having killed the "Born Alive" bill in the Illinois legislature, meaning that a baby born alive from a botched abortion has to struggle and suffer without care because Obama fears that to render mercy to the baby would endanger abortion rights. He is just about the only U.S. Senator to take that stand because a similar bill passed with the support of Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein before Obama came to the Senate after having killed a version in Springfield.
He opposed the Supreme Court decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion. He wants to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. He voted against John Roberts and Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court. In his home state he supported banning the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns. He supports giving drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants. He voted to deny legal immunity to telecom companies that have cooperated with the government in warrantless wiretapping of suspected terrorists. He wants habeas corpus rights to detained suspected terrorists and security risks at Guantanamo. He wants a full-scale withdrawal from Iraq. He has vowed in his first presidential year to meet with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea with no preconditions.
Seemingly everything he does stamps him as a far-left-wing radical. His insensitivity, his alienation from traditional moral values is exhibited in his ultra-crass secularistic statement the other day. He was referring to his daughters when he casually said in Johnstown, Pennsylvania: .
"If people make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."
Punished with a baby. This is a very-very cold, uncompassionate and unfeeling young man whose inner-self is masked by a politician's duplicity. All by himself, he has built the record and has woven the skein that will likely strangle his campaign. You don't read about this in Carol Marinâ€¦the hard-bitten Mother Superior of Feminism, do you? You bet not.
The truth is starting to emerge. The MSM-created "dream field" was always inflated beyond belief. A fairy tale, really.
