How can a man with who votes the Democratic Party line in the U.S. Senate 97% of the time genuinely claim that he will unify the country? He can’t.

How can a man who has attended an African Nationalist church for over 20 years claim to transcend race? He can’t.

For the above reasons, I just can’t buy the almost defied image of Obama presented by both his official campaign staff and his unofficial campaign staff (i.e. the members of the media who cry when they hear him speak). While Obama is intelligent, charismatic, and an effective public speaker, he isn’t the savior that many want to make him. [BTW, check out this interesting footage of people fainting during his speeches.] Moreover, the hope that many Americans have, a hope to find a racial savior that can wipe the slate clean has unfortunately led to a myopic vision on the part of Obama supporters to overlook the wildly overstated case for his presidency. Perhaps even more frightening is Obama’s own belief that he does live up to the hype.

Charles Krauthammer said it best in a column he wrote back in February called “Obama, The Platitude Salesman.” (more…)
