American Thinker: The Missing Link in the Evolution of Barack Obama
There are many great points made in this article, especially the one of conversion. Be it total radical conversion or a more simple conversion as mentioned, of putting childish things behind, there is always some evidence there. There is none with Obama, unless it is in the things he is hiding from us, and if that were true you would think that he would be proud of it. Most people are, when they change, they want other people to know that they are not the same person they were before.
Take the alcoholic or the drug addict that overcomes the habit, they are happy that they are working to overcome their demons, and often shout it from the rooftops. They regret the person they were, they want everyone to know they are different. Mr. Obama has never said one word of regret for anything that he has done. He talked in one of his books about using drugs, and for most people even the mildest drug is addictive. We know he has an addictive personality because of his struggles with smoking, but he has never even proclaimed himself to be drug free. I personally would like to know how he achieved that. It would help a lot of people to know that what you do as a young man or woman, no matter how destructive, can be overcome. And yet we have nothing!
Obviously, somehow, he did manage to overcome it. You would think this would be a part of his life that he would be willing to share, since this is something that he really should be admired for.I have know people who have given themselves to God and have instantly overcome drug use, smoking, and other addictions, but they are some of loudest people around shouting their thanks to God for helping them. Perhaps Mr. Obama is one of those people who have a very difficult time expressing his feelings, but he seems to have no problems doing so on things that really seem to please him.
It truly is a troubling thought that we have a man in the Whitehouse that is even more secretive than Richard Nixon. Especially when that man was elected on the promise of openness and transparency. The way he goes around the congress to do what he wants suggests that he is the same person he claimed to be in college, a scocialist leaning egotist who thinks what he wants is more important than anything else. The fact that this man is the President of the United States and has more power than anyone on Earth is frightening.
For years we have felt that if someone were to abuse power the way Nixon did that Congress would be there to stop them. Here we have had a Congress that has gone along with everything he wanted. And now that Congress is changing, he is simply going around them. You have to ask, what will he do next?
