Not racist, but maybe a winnerist

At Kerplunk a bit of a read about Colin Powell's support of Obama.

Obama's qualifications and experience for POTUS amount to zero. How he can be praised for his "Presidential demeanour" and this is put forward as some skill which qualifies him as POTUS leaves me stunned at the shallowness of his qualifications.

If I were visiting a medical specialist, or using any kind of specialist - plumbers seem to be the order of the day - I wouldn't mind that in the case of the medical specialist his* bedside manner was not the best, or the plumber was all business, if he was the best person for the job.

Obama is not the best person for the job. He's there because he's... I dunno. Why is he there?

*Take it as written that her is here, too. It used to mean everyone before the PC/Genderinclusive police put the wind up everyone.

In comments from Wand, a link to The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama. The intro:


Allow us to put our cards on the table at the outset: We are two young conservative journalists—both in our 20s. Unlike many of our peers, we are not swept up in Obamamania and would prefer John McCain to win the election. We’ve teamed up with seasoned blogger extraordinaire, Ed Morrissey, whose careful and thoughtful pursuit of the truth—even when it benefits his political opponents—is respected across the blogosphere. In that spirit, we are not at all interested in perpetuating lies, rumors, and innuendo about Barack Obama. Promoting such information does America a disservice, allows Obama’s supporters to justifiably cry “smear,” and damages our own credibility.

What follows is by no means comprehensive, but it does shed some much-needed light on a number of Obama’s positions, statements, and associations about which he has been less than honest. We’ve attempted to boil each issue down to a succinct explanation with an accompanying, brief video clip—often starring Barack Obama in his own words. Before pulling the lever for someone who hopes voters will ignore his paper-thin resume, unsavory associations, and hard-left voting record, each citizen has a duty to do his due diligence.

In short, we hope this “closing argument” is compelling and clear, and we encourage you to share this essay with undecided or wavering family members, friends, and co-workers.

O-man is black there is no other reason.
If elected O-man will destroy everything and blame GWB like KRudd blames JWH.
