Pure Politics…

… pure as the yellow snow.

So, when your campaign is built on something less than a record of sure accomplishment and your followers are prone to swooning in your presence can you afford something like this:

Barack Obama now admits his involvement in this land deal was a mistake

That link is from The Times of London.  Ed Morrissey has taken over for Bryan at Hot Air and has brought us some very good analysis of MessiahObama’s difficulty in all of this.  Let me give you a bit from Ed and then ask a couple of questions:

The Times of London follows the money in the journalistic tradition of Watergate and finds a strange connection between Tony Rezko, Barack Obama, and Nadhmi Auchi. The latter, one of Britain’s richest men, has a long historyof shady financial dealings as well as numerous connections to Saddam Hussein, who he helped to power. According to the Times, Auchi sent a lot of money to Rezko just before his wife bought property adjacent to the Obamas in a land deal that has already raised a lot of eyebrows:

The story goes on to say that Sen Obama received about a 15% price reduction on a piece of property, because a British-Iraqi helped him out by lending money to a fundraiser of Obama’s.  Obama and the fund raiser bought adjacent property, with the fundraiser paying the asking price and the Obamas receiving a hefty discount.

Here are my questions:

  1. What does it take for the NYT to run a front page story on a candidate?  For McCain the bar was pretty low, basically rumors that he had an affair.
  2. Is Obama the only one treating the office of President as a platform for national salvation?  I think not, but I would be interested in what you have to say.
  3. Lastly, this is not the first time in history a political figure has been lifted high, drawing many to his side by force of personality.  The question is this:  Is he more like Mussolini or Stalin?  I am speaking politically here, not in the number of people he may kill.

The Savior State will always fail.  Rome and its Caesers could not sustain their role as bringers of peace.  The US under Wilson did not make the world safe for Democracy, George W. Bush has not brought democracy, all bow down, to the Middle East and Barrack Obama is not the hope of the entire world as Louis Farrakhan said.

Jesus Christ and His Gospel are the hope of the world.  As Frank Turk’s pastor says, “It is the solution to the culture.”

  1. Al,

    The more I read and listen to him, the scarier he gets. I found on his website his view on faith and politics. It can be found at http://www.barackobama.com/2006/06/28/call_to_renewal_keynote_address.php
    He claims to have been a Christian for 20 years, so you would think he could articulate his faith a little bit better than this. He is confused about Christianity at best.

    Your post made me think of something. I used to be a big fan of the Left Behind books (not anymore) and Obama is starting to remind me of Nicolae Carpathia, the antichrist character in the books. Humble beginnings, with little experience gets pushed to the Presidency, shady characters pushing him up through the ranks. I am pretty sure Obama is not the antichrist, but the way he is talking and acting, and the way people are fawning over him, it makes you wonder. Just glad you guys were able to convince me how wrong it would be to vote for this guy. Good post!

  2. David,

    That is a powerful article. I linked to it on my sight. More people, especially us as Christians, need to see that recognize where this country is at. Thanks for passing that along.

    Rob,

    Put a warning label up if you are going to post something like that! Now I gotta clean off my monitor!
