A BLACK DAY IN HISTORY

I awoke this morning to find that Obama has been elected President of the United States. As far as I'm concerned - this is a black day in history - absolutely no pun intended.

As long as I live I will never understand the great American public. I voted for McCain - or rather - I voted against Obama. Truth to tell - I wasn't happy with either candidate. I don't believe that either one of them is strong enough to lead America - certainly not strong enough to deal with world problems and world leaders.

And nevermind that I was terrified that Sarah Palin could possibly have become President at some point - she's another one who scares me because she's untried and untested. But then again - Joe Biden as President?

And who is Obama anyway? Does anyone know the first thing about him except for the fact that he surrounds himself with undesirables? Reverend Jeremiah Wright? Louis Farrakhan? The Reverend Pflager? Bill Ayers? Rezko? These are the people Obama counts as friends and mentors? Who is Obama - a Senator who voted "present" more than one hundred times during Senate votes instead of standing up for his principles? What principles? What do we know about him?

I will never believe that he sat in Reverend Wright's church for twenty years - twenty years - and was not aware of what the man was preaching. Did Wright refrain from his diatribes when Obama was in attendance because he knew that somewhere - twenty years down the road - Obama would run for the presidency and could "honestly" say that he didn't know what Reverend Wright stood for? Hogwash!

This is the man who will be the President of the United States - and the leader of the free world. A man who is a follower of Jeremiah Wright - anti-white, anti-Jewish, anti--- everything that is good and decent.

A man whose wife is "proud to be an American for the first time in her adult life"? Why - because her husband was running for President? There is nothing else to be proud about?

Americans want change. Fine. Good. But a change to what? What is he offering us? What is he offering the world? What experience does he have? What is his world view? What is his view on anything? Has anyone noticed that for the past 21 months of his campaign he has said - absolutely nothing?

At this point I see him as only an empty suit with nothing to offer - nothing for me to build any hope on. He has charisma? I don't see it.

For some strange reason he became the media darling....why? What do other people see that I don't? Do you really believe for even one minute that he will deliver - or be able to deliver - on any of his campaign promises? Raise taxes? Now? Get out of Iraq? Now? Speak with Teheran with no pre-conditions? Bring peace to the Middle East? Get a grip.

He frightens me more than I can tell you. My only real hope is that he proves me wrong. We'll have to wait and see.

Well on this one I do not agree Rena. But that is how the world goes.

Only time will tell.

I must say that my friends, family and readers in North America and Europe agree with you. However - my friends here in Israel agree with me. It all depends on where you are standing - or living. I would like to be proved wrong but the more I read and listen to what he is doing and planning - the more worried I become. I believe he is bad - nay, terrible - for Israel. And that is my big worry at the moment. You're right - only time will tell.
 
I agree completely with you Rena. He scares me, too.
 
Dear Serena - Change? What change? So far he has chosen Bill Clinton's cadre. We might as well have chosen Hillary - whom I would have voted for anyway - by default it's true - but certainly better than Obama in any case. I follow his "pronouncements" closely - he has managed to flip on almost everything he said and/or promised. This does not bode well for us - either in the States or in Israel. You have no idea how uncomfortable I am with him as President - uncomfortable? That's an understatement.
