Obama in Middle of Endurance Test

by Sean Hackbarth

Getting caught up in the process and self-perceived pointless arguments is par for the course in a Presidential campaign. Running is a long, agonizing process that tests the mental stamina of a candidate. My man Fred Thompson stumbled early last fall, got frustrated, and didn’t get into his groove until the last month when it was too late. While we don’t see the frustration from Sen. Barack Obama we heard it from his wife Michelle:

Michelle Obama lifted the lid on the irritation felt by the leading Democrat candidate for the White House at the way anti-American outbursts by his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, have dogged his campaign.

He is said to be itching to turn all his fire on John McCain, the Republican candidate, who is benefiting most from Mr Obama’s protracted tussle with Hillary Clinton.

Mrs Obama told a rally in Durham, North Carolina, on Friday that only her husband’s desire to change US politics had helped him to control his feelings: “Barack is always thinking three steps ahead – what do we need to do to make change.”

Her husband was thinking “I can’t let my ego, my anger, my frustration get in the way of the ultimate goal,” she said.

“Barack has been characterised as many things that have nothing to do with who he is.”

That may be the case, but Obama obviously hasn’t done enough to characterize himself beyond a Left-wing politician pushing “hope” and “change.” By not dealing with Wright more forcefully in his acclaimed speech on race he let Wright set him up for a take down.

I also don’t think it was wise of Mrs. Obama to publicly claim her husband is a brilliant political strategist. A lack of humility will only play up the “elitist” charge sinking into his narrative (not that there’s anything wrong with elitism).

The campaign at least feels Jeremiah Wright has hurt Obama’s chances. They want to take the conversation beyond him now that Obama has distanced himself from him.

A campaign is a testing ground for future Presidents in that they have to endure stressful situations, make quick decisions, and live with the consequences. Obama is facing his biggest test now.

There once was a man named Obama
His life began with drama
An African Muslim father
And a wild white mama

Obama’s white grandparents
They gave him a charmed life
Raised on the beaches of Hawaii
Far from ghetto strife

He went to private schools
Fourteen thousand dollars a year
Working-class white folks
They were nowhere near

He attended Columbia
Then Harvard Law
A very soft and liberal upbringing
Something Americans eventually saw

He then went to Chicago
Nation of Islam, Farrakhan, Black Panthers and Jackson
The only friends he made
All from the extreme left-wing faction

He joined a radical church
His Pastor downright insane
Blacks and whites, he said
Think with different parts of their brain

His church praised a man named Cone
With hateful opinions he was filled
He said white people were “the devil”
And Gods who love whites must be killed

Obama first ran for State Senate
With permission from Chicago’s Marxist King
A domestic terrorist named Ayers
Obama kissed his ring

He wrote a book called “Dreams From My Father”
From start to finish a racist rant
After people finally read it
They later said: “Obama, no we can’t”

He wrote how he rejected his mother’s race
And that Malcolm X was a hero
People had a clear warning
Obama was a dangerous zero

He was then elected to the U.S. Senate
Obama’s ego grew very bold
He barely served a year
I will run for President was the story he told

He spent millions to stage rallies
The crowds would yell and cheer
But then it all fizzled after he said
Typical white folks cling to religion, guns and beer

His wife said America was mean
She was never really proud
Her Black Separatist thesis at Princeton
Became a campaign cloud

People said he was a Muslim
His supporters scoffed and jeered
Then his Black Liberation Church was exposed
And Obama’s ugly head was reared

He tried to recover in a speech on race
The radical left-wing media offered raves
But he said white folks had an “untrained ear”
And abolitionists in Pennsylvania turned over in their graves

He claimed to be a uniter
He would bring people together all at once
But after his speech in Philadelphia
He proved to be a demographic dunce

He wouldn’t cover his heart
As the National Anthem played
It’s a meaningless gesture he said
But Americans felt betrayed

He wouldn’t wear a flag pin
It was against his One World view
It’s doesn’t matter he said
And the American people stewed

He first called terrorist Ayers his friend
Then said this man he didn’t really know
More deceit and cover-ups
Obama’s lies began to grow

Farrakhan, Jackson and Sharpton
Three of Obama’s greatest fans
He tried hiding them in the closet
So not to further offend the white man

Then came his anti-American Pastor
Obama’s mentor for 20 years
He preened, shucked and jived
White people rose up and sneered

NBC and the New York Times
They tried each day to save Obama’s campaign
But real Americans said “FU”
And Obama spiraled down the drain

The radical left-wing Democrats
A Presidential race lost once again
Is it really a surprise
They’ve lost 7 of the last 10?


[...] According to Michelle Obama from The Telegraph, Barack Obama is a little teapot, short and stout who is about to hit the boiling point. As the Gateway Pundit states, Barack’s Teapot Is About to Whistle. If the pressure of a primary is about to make Obama’s head pop off, what does the American public think that the pressures of actually being the President will do? Is Obama really fit to be President? A primary is a endurance test to that of the Presidency. What does it mean when you can’t pass the test? [...]
