I suppose Biden himself could also be a bit of crisis for Sen. Obama’s campaign. Why so many people are willing to overlook the fact that Obama is the least prepared and most inexperienced presidential candidate in modern times is a quandary. And why people think he can fix the economy when he has never actually even run a business or even a city government is remarkable.
This is not some fairy tale story with a happy ending if Sen. Obama is elected. No. This is as serious as it gets. The person elected will be responsible not only for our economy but also for our security and position in the world. Russia, North Korea, China, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine and Venezuela with all their problems do not disappear with an inspiring speech or campaign promise. I think Biden understands that. I think voters understand that too, but we ignore it to our peril.
“Live free or die!” is one of our nation’s storied mottoes, yet America is on the precipice of trading freedom with its uncertainties and endless opportunities for the mediocre “safety” of massive government programs funded with your money to fix all of our problems. Obama is attempting to buy votes with the promise of tax rebate checks for millions of people who don’t even pay any Federal income taxes. I grant that McCain is not the best example of conservative economic prowess, but Obama is much worse and intentionally so. We forget that government created these problems in the first place. Over-taxing success and feeding more money to government solves nothing and kills jobs.
In addition, we are about to tell the world whether they can “test” our resolve or not. Obama has consistently demonstrated his willingness to back down from a necessary fight. And he’s been dead wrong. If Obama had been President these past four years, Iraq would be lost. Gone would be the chance at a stable democracy and the new opportunity for women’s rights in the Middle East. In fact, if Obama had been President eight years ago, Saddam Hussein would still be in power today. And so what Obama represents to me is quite simple—less freedom here and abroad and more fear. Don’t take my word for it, just ask Obama’s VP.
