"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

During his eight years in the Illinois state senate, Barack Hussein Obama voted "present" 130 times. That's an astounding 12-13 times a year in which he said, in effect, "I'm here, but I'm not going to take a stand on this issue."

Given that record of bold leadership, I'm surprised Sen. Obama acted as he did on the legislation Congress passed July 9 to renew the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Sen. Obama had pledged to filibuster FISA if it contained a provision to provide retroactive immunity to telecommunications companies which cooperated with the government, and then reneged on that promise.

The FISA flip flop is the latest of er, ah, "pivots" Sen. Obama has made recently on campaign finance, NAFTA, gun control, the death penalty, and abortion. Now get ready for the Mother-of-All-Pivots he is about to make on the Iraq war.

(Barack has already had his website scrubbed from all mention of the "surge" not working in Iraq. Why has he done that?)

Barack is such a blank slate that Susan Sarandon, who supports Obama, and who is caught up in all the Obama hype said, "So I think (Obama) definitely has convinced people that he stands for change and for hope, and I can't wait to see what he stands for," not even realizing what a stupid comment this is and only underscores his jejuneness.

Even Hillary Clinton noted his inexperience and made it known when she said, "I have a lifetime of experience that I will bring to the White House. I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002."

Obama is a piece of clay being molded by the far left wing of the Democrat party - all hype and little substance - a blank slate in which everyone can see him as anything they want.

It does remind me of the character Chancy Gardner from the 1979 movie "Being There," starring Peter Sellers. I found it to be quite funny.

"Being There" is a story of a man who has been totally isolated in his life living in a man's house and tending to his garden. This is all he knows. His meals are even left for him at the same time each day and does not even know how it arrives. Upon his benefactor's death the isolated gardener is thrust into the an unknown (to him) world and by "chance" he becomes a prominent and important celebrity. His opinions are sought after yet he is oblivious to anything important as he is a simpleton.

If you have never seen the movie, I suggest you rent it and watch it. And think of Barack.
