Hope != Change, A Final Look At Obama and McCain

Hope Does Not Equal Change

In this series we have taken a second look at Barack Obama and I beleive have found that a sympathetic press has truely protected him and his ideas from scrutiny. It’s been an organized effort that now culminates in an attempt to dissuade Republicans from even voting. But in Part IV – A New Hope we found that when his ideas, and that of if Democratic supporters, are exposed, the truth (with the help of a lightsaber) burns through his rehtoric and his true intentions are revealed.

Now I want to address the heart of his campaign . . . . the hope for change.

Barack Obama has created a tidal wave of expectations that now cresendo to a level no lower than changing the world. He stokes the buring desires of people who are truely hurting with the promise that he can fix what ails them. He can fix the Economy, he can fix Health Care, he can fix the Environment, and he can even bring peace to a world at war. He has successfully gotten millions of people to support him by addressing NOT the problems themselves but by simply appealling to Americans natural capcity to beleive that the future could be better. To hope that someone new may bring something different. He has so convincingly made Hope his unofficial trademark that anyone attempting to challenge him is labeled mean-spirited or unbalanced (come on who can be against Hope???).

We all hope that things will be better, that the poor will become successful, that the sick will be healed, that our children can go to college, that our Economy will stablize, that those who want to work will find it, and that we as a people can put our differences aside. But Hope is not enough!

Hope is not enough because Hope and Change ARE NOT THE SAME! In fact, they are opposites. Hope means to internally desire something . . . Change on the other hand is an action that requires us to do something.

Hope Will NOT Help The Poor!

Hope Will NOT Heal The Sick!

Hope Will NOT Educate Our Children!

Hope Will Not “Fix Our Economy!

Hopw Will NOT Clean Our Environment!

These problems require action. If these problems are to change they require that we DO something, that we Change something. In his professional career Barack Obama has not DONE a single thing to fix any of these problems. If you beleive that his experience meets the level necessary to be the President of the United States, than why has he NOT already made headway is trying to fix even one of these problems? There is no legislation he has introduced to address any of these issues, instead he has appealled to our Hope. Notice I said our Hope. This is not something that Obama has given to us . . . its something we’ve always had. Some had just forgotten how to express it.

John McCain, unlike Barack Obama, has an extensive history of actively seeking change to address our problems. Of reaching across the aisle to Democrats and Republicans (hell we thought of him as a Democrat half the time) to create solutions to problems. He has worked to bring about Change . . . not Hoped that Change would occur. That experience and that Demonstration of a willingness to break with the pack is the reason John McCain is the better candidate for President. And that is the reason he will get my vote tomorrow.

Obama, “My Muslim Faith”

Sometime this morning the smell of raw meat wafted past my keyboard.  At the time I knew there was something in the air but I couldn’t identify it . . . . .then this slow lumbering softball came creeping toward the batters box.

By the time I got this pitch there were already right wing bloggers saying this was the smoking gun.  He admitted it.  He’s a MUSLIM  We told you . . . blah blah blah.  Especially if you shorten it down to just him saying. “My Muslim Faith”.  And I’m sure that I’ll hear it on Rush and Sean tomorrow.

I’ve got a message for my brothers and sisters on the right.  This is our chance to do the right thing.  I understand that you want to hit the Obama Nation with this because of  the cowardly and despicable writings on Sarah Palin.  You, like me, heard this and your instinct was to pick up this weapon of opportunity and hit them with it screaming “And this is for Bristol!!!”  

I want you to resist.  I want you to be the bigger man, or woman.  First, even if he was Muslim (which he is not) it shouldn’t make a difference AND if you were watching This Week this morning you know what he was trying to say.  He actually was trying to pay Big Mac a compliment for not playing the ridiculous Muslim card.  Remember that was Hillary!

If you truly want to stand up to the LIES the left wing bloggers are spewing on the electoral battlefield the best way to do it is not spread more lies but to expose their vitriol the the intense heat of research and fact.

As soon as Obama clinched the nomination I knew this battle would be fought in the blogisphere.  The Internet revolution has devolved campaigns from a battle of ideas held in the public arena to one held in a pietri dish full of crap.  We’ve already seen people make stuff up, atribute it to someone else and then copy it into the COMMENTS on a newspaper website, where it might then be refereced as NEWS.  And leftists can then say “well it was on a newspapers website”

These are the tactics of the left.  They have used it on each other.  We are above this and don’t have to engage them at that level.

Where we can  . . . .we should avoid adding to the crap  . . . . otherwise we cannot complain about what the Left and their friends in the media are doing.

I found something that embodies the type of dialog I want to have  . . . .from of all people Sean “P. Diddy” Combs.
