Obama World Tour Results in Huge Bounce--for McCain!
By John W. Lillpop
Barack Obama's grand tour across the Middle East and Europe was supposed to shore up the candidate's non-existent foreign policy and equally vacuous commander-in-chief credentials, and to build on his modest lead in the polls over John McCain.
However, despite the best efforts of he and his troupe of adoring news anchors, the 10-day love in with the Middle East and Europe served to confirm, with great finality, the fact that Barack Obama lacks the requisite judgment, character, and patriotism to serve as president of these great United States.
As a result, the Obama "lead" has vanished. In fact, according to a recent Rasmussen daily Presidential Tracking Poll, McCain now owns a slight lead in the race for the White House.
This stunning reversal makes it clear that American voters are not interested in electing a "world citizen" to serve as president.
Instead, voters want a president who is passionately in love with Americans and the values that we cherish, and who is willing to defend those values against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Voters want a president who will treat foreign leaders and institutions (like the United Nations) with utmost respect and dignity, but who will be an unwavering advocate of "America First!" with apologies to none, foreign or domestic.
Voters want a president who would refuse to attend a church in which the presiding pastor blamed the US for 9/11 and shouted "GD America!" during a worship service.
Voters want a president who respects and honors US military personnel, and who proudly trumpets significant military successes in the war on terror such as the recent surge in Iraq.
Voters want a president who despises war, but who will use American military force as a last resort when the safety and well being of 300 million Americans is in jeopardy.
Voters want a president who respects American language and culture as is, and who would never talk down to American citizens by demanding that they learn a foreign language to accommodate immigrants, millions of whom are here illegally.
Voters want a president who speaks English without embarrassment or apology to anyone.
Voters want a president who has principled stands on the major issues confronting America and who stands by those principles, rather than flip flopping in order to maintain the cadence dictated by opinion polls.
Voters want a president who is a "mainstream" moderate with balanced views on vital issues of the day, rather than one who embraces extreme liberalism and outright socialism.
Voters want a president who proudly displays the American flag at every opportunity & who understands and respects Old Glory as a symbol of all that is great about America.
Voters want a president who openly expresses his patriotism without embarrassment or apology to anyone.
In short, American voters want a president who is extreme only in his loyalty and dedication to America.
Barack Obama is NOT what American voters want for our 44th president!
