Debate Fallout?

As has been well publicized, Senators HRC and Obama debated (again) on ABC last Wednesday. Surprisingly, the moderators asked some tough questions. The next day, Senator Obama criticized the moderators for spending the first part of the debate asking personal questions instead of questions dealing with issues facing Americans. What Senator Obama should realize is this simple reason for these questions needing to be asked is this:

The character of the candidate is an issue that is of interest to Americans. After all, the character of the candidate aspiring to the Presidency is important. Would you, the American voter, want a person of poor character leading this country?

Senator Obama fails to realize that character does matter, and that Americans are looking at who he associates with, what he says, and what he does. Associations with people give glimpses into the person’s character, and the people that Senator Obama has around him has not given a stellar endorsement of his choice of friends & associates. Some of the comments that he (and his wife) have made during speeches has not endeared him to his targeted audience. Last, actions and comments over items such not wearing the American flag nor placing his hand over his heart during the playing of the National Anthem calls into question his sincerity of his patriotism.

All of the above, while seemingly trivial, are important in delving into the character of a person that is wanting to lead this country. Answering these types of questions without a script or preparation shows what a person is really made of. Is he or is he not a person that has what it takes to lead the greatest nation currently on the face of the Earth?

We already know what to expect of Senator HRC, and know the depths of her character by her actions the last time she was in the White House. Now it is time that Senator Obama spends some time under some bright lights and reveal his true character.

  1. If Obama gets the nomination, he’ll really be under the microscope. He has declared that he won’t be swiftboated, but he needn’t be so sure about that. Although the mainstream media are in love with Obama, the blogosphere is not. And the swiftboating of John Kerry came from the web.

    In those immortal words: “It ain’t over until the fat lady sings”!

    I don’t know about the media – they seem to be falling out of love with Obama since they are reporting more and more of Obama’s shortcomings.

    Besides, who said that weight-challenged females need to serenade us? (Just a little PC in there for the Liberal visitors to this blog…)

    I don’t want that closet Muslim as President. He will probably make the women cover themselves from head to toe to teach us all a lesson about why it don’t pay for someone like President Bush to attack the USA on 9/11 and blame the Muslims
