Even though continuous questions arise about who Barack Obama really is, the polished orator continues his popularity rise in the eyes of the news media and the majority of American voters.
The people have often been disappointed in their chosen leader's performance. With the exception of Ronald Reagan, since 1968, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bush I, Bill Clinton and Bush II have all been remembered negatively in one way or another -- which does not bode well for the judgment and common sense of voters.
Given the fact that our choices are severely limited by the stronghold of the two-party system -- and the fact that this is the most crucial time in history -- knowing where Obama is coming from and where he would take us is vital to our future. If he wins and he turns out to be the Left's "Manchurian Candidate," shame on us.
The Marxist/Lenin-driven Communist Soviets once warned us that they would take us over without firing a shot. Considering the grip the Left has our educational system, our news media and our government, they might not be Russian, nevertheless, they are mostly of the socialist persuasion.
