“Obama Campaign Public Enemy #1”:  Joe Biden

I’m not sure what on earth possessed Joe Biden to make the kind of statements he did in Atlanta on Sunday, but it almost seemed as if he were speaking assuredly, prophetically – or maybe it’s Joe Biden gone wild?  His words still echo in my mind:

“Mark my words.  It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy.  The world is looking.  Remember I said it standing here.  If you don’t remember anything else I said.  Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.  And he’s gonna have to make some really tough I don’t know what the decision’s gonna be, but I promise you it will occur.”  

Phew!  I’ve got to take a real deep breath after hearing Biden’s words.  What can we make of such insanity?  What running mate would even imagine to utter these kind of statements on a campaign trail?  No one would wish this type of situation on any potential leader or candidate – friend or foe.  No one in their right mind.  And if they did have such machinations, surely they would not utter them publicly.  Screwy thinking is all I can say.  Self-fulfilling prophesies often come to fruition when we utter such blasphemies.  Joe, please take your meds and calm down!  Seems the enemy is in Obama’s own camp and his name is Joe Biden.

“Obama Campaign Public Enemy #2”:  Bill Ayers

Yes, I know that some would like to dismiss the Obama-Bill Ayers relationship.  I won’t belabor it much, just suffice it to say that Ayers was a cofounder of the Weather Underground and admittedly bombed public buildings.  Obama says they only lived in the same neighborhood, had lunch, served on a board together and the amount of money he gave his campaign was nominal.   I guess that means Ayers is only on the fringe of Obama’s campaign?  Ask Hillary Clinton, she was the one who expressed concerns when she was running against Obama.

“Obama Campaign Public Enemy #3”:  Reverand Jeremiah Wright

Far be it for me to criticize a man of God, so I will let his own words speak for himself:

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America’.  No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people.  God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human.  god damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

Phew!  Another deep breath.  This pastor married Obama and his wife, Michelle, baptized their two daughters, was given credit for Obama’s book title, ‘The Audacity of Hope”, and served as the Obama family pastor for 18 years.  Enough said.

“Obama Campaign Public Enemy #4”:  Reverand Jessie Jackson

Unfortunately Jackson has developed a love-hate relationship with Obama.  Jackson endorsed Obama in 2007, while in 2008 when caught on camera speaking under his breath, Jackson said he wanted to cut off his (Obama’s) nuts.  Gee, with friends like these in your camp, who needs enemies? 

I suppose that’s enough enemies for one day.  We won’t revisit the fact that Hillary Clinton ripped Obama publicly as too big of a risk for America to take, or any of the other flip floppers that once spoke against Barack Obama and now stand in the camp shadows hoping they have bet on the right horse.  Some call them fair weather friends, I call them enemies in Obama’s Camp.

Until next time,
