WHAT KIND OF POLITICIAN IS BARACK OBAMA?

Posted by PrestoPundit on 08/15/2008

David Freddoso, author of The Case Against Barack Obama, says Obama is a cautious, cynical, politics-as-usual, special interest hack in an American Spectator interview:   

Senator Obama votes for bills like the farm bill. He votes for a bridge to nowhere, and ethanol. He votes for and supports, generally, all the special-interest, corrupt systemic arrangements, where corporations are taking the taxpayer for a ride. Senator Obama is an avid supporter for all of these kinds of things, which is something I document in the book. He voted for ethanol twice, then went back and did his land deal with Tony Rezko on the same day: June 15, 2005.

All of these things form a broad pattern. It’s not as if he does these things on occasion — when he endorses the Cook County machine politician in the election it’s not an isolated incident; it’s something he’s done consistently. He attached himself in Springfield at the hip with Emil Jones, the state senate majority leader, who represents precisely this kind of politics.

What made you think anything else?  His slick PR campaign?  His Harvard and Columbia education?  His far left background?  His slick speaking style?  Suckered in by all of it, eh?
