Obama, the national security neophyte

From Mark Alexander at the Patriot Post today, comes this article questioning the appropriateness of the Obamessiah for POTUS:

This week, Iranian Islamist Mahmud Ahmadi-Nejad tested his new ballistic missile, the Shahab-3—range 1,250 miles. Next door in Iraq, 550 metric tons of “yellowcake” uranium ore, which Saddam intended to weaponize for use in his non-existent WMD program, were removed from Tuwaitha. (That’s enough for more than 100 medium-sized nuclear boomers.) And while al-Qa’ida has been routed in Iraq, there was plenty of evidence this week that jihadis are putting up fierce resistance in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Seems like this is as good a week as any to pause and ponder, “Who should be our next commander in chief?”

The most important constitutional role of our president is that of commander in chief—which is why every Patriot, every American, every human on the planet, should be deeply concerned about the prospect of a “President Obama.”

If Barack Hussein Obama, the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate, persuades voters that he is a “centrist candidate” and parlays that deception into defeating John McCain, there will be plenty of “change” in the coming years—unpleasant at best and catastrophic at worst.

Arguably, since our nation’s founding, no candidate has been less qualified than Obama to be his political party’s nominee for president of the United States. And nowhere is Obama more ill prepared than in matters of national security.

Not to mention just about any other requirement of holding the office.

I've been waffling on who is the lesser of two evils of the two candidates. My thinking is that if the Obamessiah gets elected, after four years of this total screw-up we'll see a conservative resurgence. If McCain is elected and we see a dip in the economy, people will be calling it Bush III and we'll pay for it with Democrats controlling the Congress for a long, long time.

I'm waffling no more. Given the two options, I'm convinced that B. Hussein Obama's presidency would simply be too damaging, too dangerous for too long for this country. Look at the thirty years of damage the last ultra-liberal nutroot (Jimmah Carter) did to the USA.

Read the rest of the article here, and you'll be convinced as well.
