I presume most of you watched it.
When it was over, my husband and I concluded that McCain was the clear winner. We based that conclusion on Obama's facial expressions while McCain was talking, as much as on anything either candidate said. We were watching the split screen version of the debate that CNN provided. I thought McCain took the higher road as reflected in his reactions to Obama's statements. McCain came across as trustworthy. Obama did not.
But the polls, as reported this morning, don't reflect our conclusions. It seems that the news shows have concluded Obama won. Meanwhile I'm flabbergasted that he can even stay in the race after the revelations about his past, and this latest revelation, which is still unconfirmed, as far as I know. How can Americans even consider a candidate with connections to the leaders of the SDS/Weather underground movement of the 1970's? Is it because the majority of polled voters were not aware or even alive back then when our country was in a state of crisis with riots in cities and on campuses? I shudder to think what could happen to America once again if these radicals attain a foothold in Washington.
Look again at that World Net Daily story linked above in which the following quote is attributed to Michelle Obama:
"African Press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view," she reportedly said. "It is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a stepfather. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband's face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband's adoption by his stepfather. The important thing here is where my husband's heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that my husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner."
If she really said that, one has to wonder if she is genetically incapable of recognizing her own racism. Does she believe racism can only be engaged in by whites? She is doing in reverse the very thing she condemns whites for. This woman will be the first lady if Obama is elected.
What will happen if Obama is elected and it then turns out that he was not qualified to run because of his citizenship? Where is the birth certificate that proves he is an American citizen? Is dual citizenship legal under American law? Why hasn't he presented a birth certificate to the Republican campaign and settled this question? What if it can't be found?
And what about this charge that he supported Raila Odinga?
To my way of thinking, Obama represents chaos magick--generate enough confusion to make everyone genuinely uneasy and unsure of what they believe, and then tell them what they believe via the evening news.
Americans are known to vote their pocketbook. The question has never been answered as to why this economic crisis that has been festering for years erupted at this particular time when there is a leadership vacuum at the top and an election hanging in the balance.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
