I have been a contributor and reader of Chattanoogan.com. for years. I am surprised, with a national election of epic proportions on top of us, that the pages are not aflame with opinions, positions, charges and counter charges. Are the Chattanooga readers and writers so consumed with local races that they are not going to comment on the presidential race? Well, I am.
In my 56 years, and I have been involved in politics since 1971, have I ever seen such a clear decision. President Obama has provided me with fodder for my writing over and over, he does not ever hide his true ambitions regarding subject very well. Quite frankly, I can read him like a book, classic liberal, educated in the finest liberal traditions and tutored by Communists in beautiful Hawaii. And let's never forget Vice President Joe Biteme, I mean Biden. He will keep SNL and other comedy shows with material for years.
Now for the dark side. The death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, in the Al-Queda saturated country of Libya is an American disgrace. Repeated communications from Amb. Stevens to the State Department, requesting in the strongest possible terms, the need for armed security went ignored. Newly discovered cables from Stevens to the highest level of the State Department explaining in great detail the threat as he saw it, is the smoking gun of this massacre.
President Obama is trying his best to keep this from exploding in his face before the election. Those of us who keep up with current events closely already know that the death of four Americans is a scar on Obama’s face that cannot be wiped away. He hopes that the less informed, the Obama Minions, the voters that have no clue, will keep getting their news from MTV, Yahoo ( I heard a woman on the radio today that said that is where she gets the news and proud of it) and other high quality locations like the main street news on TV. How about that great work in High Times and Rolling Stone.
I know that Romney is going to win, the momentum is rolling. I hope I am right for all our sakes. We cannot survive four more years of the Celebrity in Chief.
