At first, I thought there would be strong momentum from Ron Paul after his second place finish in Nevada and straw poll victory in Virginia. I was wrong. After the public caught wind of his policy proposals, they lost their fire for him. Now, the media and voters are catching Barack Obama fever. Obama fever is contributed to his charisma, and it is seemingly apparent that he will be the eventual Democratic nominee.
However, I feel like people are ignoring the question that should be asked: What is so great about Barack Obama? Is it because he is young and charismatic? Is it because he can connect with voters? Obama has only been serving as a first term U.S. Senator, and he has already accumulated a reputation: The Most Liberal Senator, according to National Journal, a bipartisan political publication. Even worse, Obama was considered one of the most liberal State Senators in Illinois. Barack Obama will not be a viable President, because he can not compromise with the Republicans or conservatives.
There is a great need to educate voters about how to combat the liberal media and become informed of the legislative record compiled by those who are running for President. Do we want a President who will ignore the Constitution and ignore the current war against terrorism? No, we want someone who will be a strong leader and will not compromise in his beliefs.
