HOPEONlogo.jpgNote: This is the final part of what has been 13 daily posts on why Barack Obama is a dangerous, objectionable, and objectively unfit candidate to be president of the United States (while many of the other candidates are not). Previous Posts — Part 1 (Obama “Part of the Problem” on Fan and Fred); Part 2 (“Energy”); Part 3 (“Punished”); Part 4 (“Number One”); Part 5 (“Earmarks”); Part 6 (’The Chicken Button’ and the Chicken Who Pushed It); Part 7 (”Trust” on Bill Ayers); Part 8 (”Middle Class”); Part 9 (”Not This Time”); Part 10 (”Income Taxes”); Part 11 (”The Anti-Reagan”); Part 12 (“Left of Everyone”).

The daily videos involved are from, a project of Let Freedom Ring (donation link is here).

This post is part of the HOPE ON Project (Help Ohio Prevent Electing Obama Now).

Senator McCain. We don’t hear much about your service to our country. You don’t talk about it very often. But that’s okay. We will.

We all know to judge a man’s character not by what he says, but what he does. You haven’t just told us you love America. You have shown us. The years you spent tortured as a prisoner of war, don’t just tell us you are honorable. They show us we can trust you.

What did our Founding Fathers hope for in a president? How about a war hero who sacrificed again and again for the love of his country? How about a veteran of the Senate who has tirelessly put America first?

Senator McCain, fads come and go, but they don’t last. You are not a fad. You are the real deal, Senator. We could never question your commitment. We can’t question your experience. We can’t question your associations and your motivations.

You have always been proud of America. You have always put your country first. And for that, we say, “Thank you, Senator.”


Additional BizzyBlog comment:

Best line of the video: “You have always been proud of America.”

Not everyone has been.

Michelle Obama is on the record saying that she wasn’t FOR HER ENTIRE ADULT LIFE until earlier this year. And she said it TWICE:

Dont’ even try to tell me that Barack Obama is authentically proud of his country (unless it elects him, I suppose — maybe). Listen to or read the transcript of the 2001 audio that was exposed earlier this week. This isn’t someone who loves his country; it’s someone who despises all of the nasty “constraints” in our Founding documents that would keep him from arbitrarily imposing “redistributive change” on the rest of us.

I can’t imagine a starker contrast between someone who endured 5-1/2 years as a POW at the Hanoi Hilton and was willing to sacrifice his presidential ambitions in the name of doing the right and then-unpopular thing, compared to someone who has constantly criticized our military’s conduct, our supposedly excessive consumption of resources, and, just yesterday, our “selfishness.”

Ed Morrissey wonders, “Does he even like Americans?” I don’t wonder. He doesn’t.
