So who is Barack Obama? That’s the million dollar question a lot of people are asking. There have been accusations, rumor and innuendo. From snopes.com to wikipedia to bloggers and even the establishment media, many people are taking up the question and trying to give the world an answer. I can’t turn on the TV without hearing some talking heads debating it. So I am wondering, too. Who is he? Here’s a little bit of what I found on the internet.
Louis Farrakhan, as far as I can tell, talks about him like he’s the Messiah, as seen on this YouTube video.
I’m not sure what Obama believes, but apparently he himself sounds like he might think that he’s the Devil, according to this article on the Huffington Post. Maybe I misunderstood. Is it just that his policies would represent the Devil’s? Well, I do admit, I wonder if he’s right. That is, in one sense, in this election a lot of people have said, and sometimes I wonder, if we are voting for the lesser of two evils.
CBS News addresses the question here.
Glassbooth.org lets you explore all of the candidates for yourself.
At least someone in McCain’s camp thinks Obama’s “the one”. Okay, I know the video’s supposed to be a joke. Or is it? Is he really “the one”?
Maybe he’s just like he suggests, a regular man who happens to look different than all those great Presidents on our money. Oh, and did I mention he has a funny sounding name? Whoever he is, he is charismatic, that’s for sure. He’s definitely a much better orator than John McCain. He talks big but I’m not sure what size stick he carries. In any case, I think he’s just a man who talks a good game.
To borrow a line from Bill O’Reilly, “What say you?”
(In the interest of fairness, coming soon …. Who is John McCain?)
