This this is the second in a series of campaign posts supporting the election of John McCain as the next president of the United States.
As John McCain and Barack Obama prepare to square off in their first debate tonight, you probably already know that Obama has deep, longstanding ties to terrorists, and that his support base is full of frothing extreme left-wing weirdos of every description (many of America’s most ardent enemies, like Hamas and Hezbollah, have endorsed Obama). Hopefully, McCain will expose those ties.
You probably know that former Democratic President Bill Clinton is heaping praise on Obama’s Republican rival John McCain, after declaring during the party primaries that it was “too soon” for Obama to be president since he lacks basic credentials. Hopefully, he will continue this wise policy.
You certainly know that Obama lacks even the vaguest hint of qualifications necessary to deal with neo-Soviet Russia.
But did you know that a few weeks ago Obama shut down his campaign offices in North Dakota? He’s running out of cash, you see. His brainstorm about rejecting public financing turned out rather less well than he thought, his “grassroots” support having apparently been a bit overestimated. And Obama needs every staffer he can lay hands on in Wisconsin, land of cheese, because John McCain is rapidly closing the gap in those northern climes. Obama himself admits: “We just barely won this state for Al Gore in 2000 and we just barely won this state for John Kerry in 2004.”
Wisconsin is very much in play this election year, despite all those claims you have heard about how Republicans are out of favor because of George Bush’s lack of popularity. So Obama sent his whole North Dakota campaign team into Wisconsin (and Minnesota, where the Republicans held their convention) to try to shore up his failure.
But despite his desperation move, things aren’t working out too well. Last Monday Obama gave a speech in Green Bay that was attended by only 6,000 people. A week before, McCain had given a speech from the very same spot, and drew 10,000 onlookers. In other words, his audience was two-thirds larger than that of Obama.
Dogged by persistent doubts about his qualifications to run the government, his total lack of foreign policy experience, his disturbing connections to corruption, terrorism and racism and his utter dearth of real accomplishments in any field, the bloom is off the Obama rose. Voters are waking up to the reality that there is simply no reason that this man should be president.
Obama was supposed to be swimming in cash, not only because of an abundance of donors but also because of a gigantic army of fierce supporters only too happy to work for free. If that were so, his South Dakota campaign office would not only still be open, it would have a line around the block of folks waiting to sign on.
It doesn’t. He isn’t. Don’t vote for him.
