The Audacity of Audacity

As I watch the media crowning Obama as the Democratic nominee, I just shake my head. They are so in love with him and it is just lost on me.

He is a first term senator, 4 years into his term, and has spent 2 years campaigning for the next job he wants instead of doing the one the people of Illinois elected him to do. Now that's audacity....

He sat for 20 years listening to a minister preaching black theology, calling on God to damn America, and calling the attacks of 9/11 chickens coming home to roost. Obama makes a speech and blames the rest of us as he embraces Reverend Wright. Now that's audacity...

He has padded his resume copiously and taken credit for legislation hammered out at meetings he did not attend.

He is chair of the Afganistan oversight committee and has YET to convene a meeting because he's busy running for president.

He worked to disenfranchise the voters of Michigan and Florida.

He heckled Hillary CLinton about releasing her tax returns a month ago, and only now has he released his.

Now that's audacity.

I really, really, really, don't get Obamamania.
