Is Obama a Decent Person?

I listen to a very informed radio commentator on weekends. He used to build nuclear bombs. He supports John McCain but always says that Obama is a decent person, he just prefers McCain’s energy policy to Obama’s. That got me thinking- what proof do we have that Obama is a decent person? I am asking this as a poll, if you can think of reasons, I’d like to know.

Here are some things that might indicate that he is a decent person: he smiles a lot, he laughs, he doesn’t have any felony convictions, his kids haven’t written any “my parents are horrible” books (of course they just learned to read a few years ago). He left his campaign to visit his ailing grandmother (of course he called McCain erratic when he suspending his campaign to deal with our sick economy).

There are a few reasons to think that he might not be a decent guy.

He is not a modest man, he is actually quite arrogant. As an example, he broadcast his V.P. announcement at 3:00am just to mock his already beaten opponent, Hillary Clinton. Today he is running ads in Arizona, again trying in his own way to humiliate John McCain. Nice guy.

He doesn’t like any sort of dissent. Just today he kicked three reporters off his airplane because their employers endorsed his opponent. He is constantly remarking that his poll numbers would be better if not for Fox News or Sean Hannity (who works for Fox News). Pew research found that the media is pro-Obama, but that doesn’t seem to be enough for him.

He smokes, but his vanity doesn’t let us see that.

But the biggest indicator that he might not be such a decent person is that he hangs around with a group of people that have spent their lives fighting to bring violent change to the U.S. and Israel. OK, if he is a professor or on a board of directors then he might have to go to meetings now and then with some unsavory peers. But that doesn’t mean that he has to go to dinner at their place, or that he has to praise their efforts in public. What would a decent person do if he went to a dinner and someone stood up and saluted “Heil Hilter” and meant it. Instead of outrage Obama just asks to pass the sweet and sour shrimp. And what is this excuse that Obama was 8 years old when Ayers bombed the Pentagon. The question I would ask Obama is what would he think if his daughter was playing on the White House lawn when a modern day “Weatherman”, disgruntled with a President Obama’s policies, threw a Molotov cocktail over the fence. Do you think his other daughter would forgive the man later in life because, after all, she was just 8 years old at the time? Maybe we should all excuse the Nazi’s for killing six million Jews because, hey, none of us were even born yet.

Obama has not shown that he has any moral compass, only a political compass. The news media has been unable to find anyone who really knows this guy, or at least nobody willing to talk about it. That is strange to me. McCain has lots of people that know him, have worked with him, have been in his personal life, and all of them seem to like him. So, after two years of running for office the question remains, is Obama a decent person?

    He hasn’t been accused or convcited of homicide has he?

    Wait, he has, essentially. He champions infanticide.

    He cares for his grandmother, unless she’s a political impediment or prop?

    He cares for his daughters?

    He’s faithful to his wife?
