No. 44 Has Spoken

Gerhard Spörl wrote in SPIEGEL ONLINE Anyone who saw Barack Obama at Berlin's Siegessäule on Thursday could recognize that this man will become the 44th president of the United States. He is more than ambitious -- he wants to lay claim to become the president of the world.
That sounds like the AntiChrist. Should we be looking at Obama and reading Revelations at the same time?
Jake Tapper blogged Shortly after 6 pm Central time -- just a few hours after Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, gave his speech in Berlin, which his campaign insisted was not political -- his campaign manager, David Plouffe, sent out a fundraising solicitation using the speech to raise campaign cash. "As you may have heard, Barack has been in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia this week," reads the email, with a big red "DONATE" sign.... This is certainly going to be used as ammunition for those critics who wondered about the true purpose of this "non political" trip. UPDATE: The Obama campaign takes issue with my description of its email with its big, red "DONATE" button as a "fundraising soliciation." The campaign, which has raised more money through the internet than any other campaign in world history, says the purpose of this email, the "DONATE" button notwithstanding, was for folks to see the speech and share it with their friends.
And then the donation part would just be something they would want to do when they saw what the Obamamessiah Antichrist was doing for them.
Mike Allen wrote on Obama promises to 'remake the world'
It took God six days to do the job, and n the seventh he rested. How long will it take Obama?
Addressing more than 200,000 elated Europeans massed in Berlin at twilight, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama promised Thursday that he would work to unite Christians, Muslims and Jews in a safer, more united world.
The Muslims have the same objective, they just want to unite them under Islam, with the Christians and Jews being dhimmis, or second class citizens, just paying the Jizya tax. Hummm. I know it is politically incorrect to call Obama a Muslim, even though he was born to a Muslim father, had a Muslim step father, and was raised for several years in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world. And his tax policies are to raise taxes, but just on the rich. Could it be that by rich he means Christians and Jews?
His 27-minute speech at the gold-topped Victory Column was interrupted by applause at least 30 times, with occasional audience chants of “O-ba-MA!”
Sounds like worship to me.
Billed as a speech about Transatlantic relations, it turned out to be a manifesto for the planet, with an appeal to “the burdens of global citizenship.”
To be President of the US you should be a US Citizen, not a global citizen.

Joe Klein doesn't like McCain

Joe Klein wrote in TIME John McCain said this today in Rochester, New Hampshire
This is a clear choice that the American people have. I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.
This is the ninth presidential campaign I've covered. I can't remember a more scurrilous statement by a major party candidate.
The first half of that statement is something McCain has said all along. The second half is the obvious rewording of it since Obama made the statement he did before he left for Iraq.
It smacks of desperation.
Joe Kline's statement smacks of desperation to find something to hit McCain with.
It renews questions about whether McCain has the right temperament for the presidency. How sad.

Sister Toldjah blogged I’d like Joe Klein to explain Obama’s position if he believes it’s not as McCain suggested. What else is one to make of someone admitting that the surge has produced positive results on so many fronts, yet at the same time argues that he still does not support it? This has got to be the most mind-boggling, stupid position Obama has taken on any issue to date. Klein’s taking offense to the way McCain characterized it does not change that fact.

Ann Althouse blogged McCain basically added a sharp twist to one of his usual statements. The usual statement is touting his own aptitude and honor. The twist is to accuse Obama of the opposite. I can't remember a more scurrilous statement by a major journalist. It smacks of desperation. It renews questions about whether Klein has the right temperament for Time Magazine. How sad.

StoptheAclu blogged Yeah, OK, Joe. How about constant comments by this and the last two major Democrat Party presidential candidates saying how horrible our foreign policy is, how they are telling the troops they are dying and being injured for the wrong reasons in the wrong war, essentially dissing the troops, and telling us how bad America is?

John Hawkins blogged So initially, it was "too late" for a surge and the situation was "impossible," so we needed to leave as quickly as possible. Now, it's impossible to lose, so we need to leave as quickly as possible.
