To those of us not disposed to believe in his “Change You Can Believe In”, it is Barack Obama who doesn’t get it. Although last night there was a small acknowledgment that he might when he said:

“I know there are those who dismiss such beliefs as happy talk. They claim that our insistence on something larger, something firmer and more honest in our public life is just a Trojan Horse for higher taxes and the abandonment of traditional values. And that’s to be expected. Because if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things. And you know what – it’s worked before. Because it feeds into the cynicism we all have about government. When Washington doesn’t work, all its promises seem empty. If your hopes have been dashed again and again, then it’s best to stop hoping, and settle for what you already know. I get it.”

It is not a stale tactic to say, know and BELIEVE that Obama is the most liberal senator in the nation. It is not a scare tactic to say, know and BELIEVE that he has coupled himself with Joe Biden, the third most liberal senator in the nation. It is not a stale, scary tactic to raise Obama’s socialistic quotes and affections or to bring up that Joe Biden, too, along with John McCain was in the Senate the 30-some years that Obama likes to say John McCain did nothing…well, neither did Joe. And it’s not a stale tactic to point out that the failures after Hurricane Katrina were 90% the fault of generations of corrupt Democrat mayors and governors than the 10% FEMA can take the blame for.

Dropping the O-bomb has been the sport of the last ten months and will be for another 60-some days. Let’s hope it’s over on election day. Obama’s is not change to believe in, it’s change to stay away from, or run from, to use his own word. He will go back to his real self if elected, and this nation will be poorer and weaker for it. Soaring rhetoric cannot replace what is in the heart and actions of this man.
