True? BHO Disqualified for FBI or Secret Service Because of Past Associations with William Ayers

Can this be true?

If Barack Obama would apply for a job with the FBI or with the Secret Service, he would be disqualified because of his past association with William Ayers, a known terrorist.

If he is elected President, he would not qualify to be his own body guard!

I have received many emails addressing this subject. Does anybody know if this is true or not?  What of Mr. Obama’s serving in the senate? Are there more rigorous demands for FBI agents and presidential body guards than for US Senators and for the US President?

Skeptical?–The Age of Obama

Image from Commission on Presidential Debates

A face of suspicion in others does not appeal to me; certainly I do not cherish a personal image of such description. My thinking leads me to the conclusion that an anointing of skepticism is not generally felt to be soothing; yet on occasion, I contend, such smearing may be the pith of wisdom.

This morning, I learned that the moderator for tomorrow night’s vice-presidential debate, PBS anchor, Gwen Ifill, has written a book that is scheduled for release on inauguration day. Name of the book? “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.” It is reported that in the book she praises Senator Obama for “forging a new path.”

How can Ms. Ifill possibly be considered neutral in tomorrow night’s debate? She obviously has an interest in Senator Obama’s being elected President, for it is fair to conclude that the sale of such a book would be greatly enhanced by his capturing the world’s greatest prize on the very day her book is to be released.

The Commission of Presidential Debates is responsible for the choice of this moderator. How are the moderators chosen?

Did Senators Obama and  McCain have a voice in the selection of this moderator (and those for the other debates)?

Are Senator McCain and his election council guilty of a serious oversight here?

I’m leaning toward thinking that Gwen Ifill should recuse herself as moderator in tomorrow night’s debate.

What say you? Am I missing something?

—–

EDIT: Thursday evening. I listened to the entire, excellent debate and I am happy to say I did not detect anything other than fairness as Gwen Ifill moderated the session. She did an excellent job.

However, I think in the future, a person who has written a favorable book toward one of the candidates should not be chosen as moderator for a debate in which that person is represented. In addition, I think Gwen Ifill should have mentioned the book to the commission who chose her.

From Jesse Jackson’s Heart

 “For his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.” Luke 6:45

That vulgar language appears to flow with ease from prominent black ministers continues to astonish me. Jesse Jackson’s crude remarks about Barack Obama are the latest example. Such words from a minister is appalling…but then, it must be that Jesse is speaking his heart.

Renaissance G writes “Oh, Jackson supports Obama all right.  But with such support, he would probably prefer that Jackson oppose him.”

Pastor Jeremiah Wright’s Inflammatory, Profane Sermons

That Mr. Obama would choose such a church as Trinity United Church of Christ, and would listen for 20 years to a pastor who uses such language and expresses such bigotry and racism, and would refer to Pastor Jeremiah Wright as his spiritual advisor, is a sure reflection of Mr. Obama’s judgment and a telling stance on his intent for our country.

Available on You Tube are other videos of Pastor Jeremiah Wright with langugage that I refuse to have on my blog. This one is bad enough.

I know my husband well, and I am sure that if we were in church and listening to a preacher who began to speak in such vile and demeaning ways, and who used profanity in his sermon, Jerry would rise, gather his family and walk us out of that church.

I shudder when I think of the possibility that Barack Hussein Obama will become President of the United States of America.

Senator Clinton Endorses Senator McCain?

I will vote for neither Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Hussein Obama. Of that I am clear.

I am unclear what Senator Clinton implies here. If Senator Obama is the Democrat candidate, will she instead vote for Senator McCain? It would follow that she will, for, implicitly she says here (four times) that Senator McCain is much more highly qualified than is Senator Obama.

….interesting.
