As you’ve guessed by now, I dislike and distrust Obama. I noted to DQ that part of my visceral dislike may be because I’ve never actually heard him speak, since I never watch political speeches, I only read them. Having read his speeches, I’ve come to the conclusion that, while his delivery may be impressive (I wouldn’t know), his content is not. I’m also unimpressed by his resume, which is minimal, but has enough stuff to assure me that, since he is one of the most liberal Senators out there, I don’t share any of his political views. And now Ed Lasky has prepared a very detailed article demonstrating that, if you’re a believer in the America-Israel alliance, as I am, Obama is probably not the candidate for you. Whether in the statements he’s made (many profoundly ignorant), the people he associates with and admires, or the positions he’s taken, his world view is a typical one for a liberal: blame Israel and assume that the side with the weaker military is also the side holding the moral high ground (yet another reason he proves himself to be intellectual weak, no matter how glib he is).
