I heard this quote from Barack Obama only today. It’s a quote from his book, “Dreams from my Father”, where Obama quotes part of a Reverend Jeremiah Wright speech where he says that “white folk’s greed runs a world in need.” (Listen to the audio on YouTube). In this YouTube clip, Obama explains that the title of his book, the Audacity of Hope, was also inspired by the Rev. Wright. This is the same Rev. Wright who said the following:
Outrageous stuff, and this was Barack Obama’s spiritual advisor for 20 years. He married Barack Obama and he baptized their kids, but now, conveniently, Obama has denounced the Reverend and separated himself from Wright. But that doesn’t change the fact that this pastor was a major influence on Obama and likely indicative of Barack’s own way of thinking.
On other, more recent news, Barack is again showing how dangerous he would be in the area of foreign policy. Early this week, on July 9, 2008, Fox News reported, “Iran launches nine long- and medium-range missiles, including one that could reach Israel, U.S. bases.” And right on queue, Obama was quoted the same day saying, “Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program. It supports terrorism across the region and militias in Iraq. It threatens Israel’s existence.” Fine and dandy, but this was not what Obama was saying just two months earlier. True to his campaign theme of “change”, he had a completely different stance in May 18, 2008 when Barack Obama said, “I mean think about it. Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us.”
So which is it Barack Obama, does Iran “not pose a serious threat” or is Iran “a grave threat”? I guess it all depends on which way the wind blows. This man would be a disaster as our president; he is dangerous, and I haven’t even touched on the danger posed by his liberal, big-government agenda. (We’ll save that for another day.)
