Barack Obama: Indecisive Demagogue

As Barack Obama lashed out at John McCain, attacking the Republican’s plan to “deal with the growing economic crisis,” the Democrat “said he would wait to release his own detailed plan to stem the turmoil on Wall Street.“*

Once again, Obama attacks his rival, demagoguing the issue, yet failing to spell out his own plan. This has emerged as pattern for Obama. John McCain has a record of supporting policies to reform the institutions which have collapsed this week, including one crafted in 2002, with the then-House Democratic leader. Barack Obama has angry words for his adversary.

It’s not just the financial sector where Obama has been indecisive. He can’t make up his mind on gay marriage either. In his book, he says he favors “equivalent rights” for gays while he pledges “equality for all” to the gay press.

This guy promotes himself as able to unite the nation,  He heralded his victory in the race for the Democratic nomination as “the moment when we began to provide care for the sick, and good jobs for the jobless. . . when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.” Campaign posters present him in the manner of Communist strongmen.

Strong and confident he may appear in image.  Uncertain and indecisive he has become on the issues.  His campaign slogans of hope and change “have absolutely no meaning whatsoever.”  As he himself wrote, “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”  Were he to spell out his own views, he might compromise the affection they bestow on him.

No wonder this Demorat has been so indecisive.  If he makes a hard call on a controversial topic, he risks losing the adulation he has so long enjoyed.

*Note the pro-Obama slant of this article referring to his economic advisors as an “ALL-STAR” team. Has Reuters ever referred to a Republican economic team in such a manner? Even the headline is loaded, highlighting Obama’s charge of McCain’s panic while ignoring the Democrat’s own indecisiveness.

UPDATE:  Linking an LA Times article headlined, “Obama votes ‘Present’ on new economic rescue plan for now, Glenn comments, “Decisive leadership for the 21st Century!

  2. “[Obama] said he would wait to release his own detailed plan to stem the turmoil on Wall Street.“

    Wait til someone else tells him what his policy is so he can read it off a teleprompter in other words.

    Strong and confident he may appear in image. Uncertain and indecisive he has become on the issues.

    Strong with the dark side Obama is.

  4. Obama’s Thugs threatened Jewish Group’s tax exempt status unless Sarah Palin was disinvited. Censorship we can believe in.
