Who is Barack Obama? by Charles McCoy, North Carolina

Senator McCain, you asked, “Who is Barack Obama?”

I can answer that question for you.  Senator Obama is an American and a senator, just like you.  He was born to a white woman, just like you.  You and Senator Obama are just alike except for a few things:

He was not given entrance into a naval academy because his father, and father before him, attended the same naval academy.

He did not graduate at the bottom of his college class.

He wasn’t involved in the loss of five airplanes during the Vietnam War causing an additional 134 military men to lose their lives.

He wasn’t captured by the Viet Cong and forced to release critical information and then to contribute to the making of a propaganda tape.

He didn’t divorce his wife and three kids to pursue the Presidency with a trophy wife at his side.

He didn’t use “poor judgment” in the Keating Five financial disaster.

He didn’t support the worst president in the history of the United States 95% of the time.

He didn’t support a war based on lies that cost the American public 10 billion dollars a month and the loss of thousands of lives.

He didn’t champion deregulation of the financial industry for 27 years, which in turn, caused America’s most recent financial disaster.

So you see, Senator McCain, you may still say you do not know who Barack Obama is, but at least now you know who he is not.
