That’s right. Some big name Conservatives are taking a look at Obama. Mr. Feel Good. What I’m wondering is that he might be considered the alternative to John McCain if, regretfully, McCain becomes the GOP nominee. My guess is that you could have one of the three options: another liberal Clinton; a liberal, grumpy old McCain; or a liberal, upbeat Obama. Hmmm, the option speaks for itself.

Barack Obama is not only popular among Democrats, he’s also an appealing figure to many Republicans. Former GOP House member Joe Scarborough, now a host on MSNBC, reports that after every important Obama speech, he is inundated with e-mails praising the speech — with most of them coming from Republicans. William Bennett, an influential conservative intellectual, has said favorable things about Obama. So have Rich Lowry of National Review and Peggy Noonan. And so have I.
A number of prominent Republicans I know, who would wage a pitched battle against Hillary Clinton, like Obama and would find it hard to generate much enthusiasm in opposing him.
What is at the core of Obama’s appeal?

But here’s the catch: terrorists are watching. They just love the fact that the liberals are fighting over who’s going to pull America out of Iraq. Take a look at what Aaron Klein says:
“The Iraqi resistance is succeeding. Hillary and the Democrats call for withdrawal. Her [Clinton’s] popularity shows that the resistance is winning and that the occupation is losing.”
I hope every candidate comprehends what the terrorists just highlighted. It’s important for our leaders to understand the terrorists are watching. The primary debate in America and our ultimate decision on whom to nominate in each party will likely directly impact the war being waged against us.
Make no mistake about it: The terrorists’ ultimate goal is to spread their brand of Islam around the world. Their short term goals include kicking America out of Iraq and the Middle East, destroying Israel and changing the demography of Europe.
Every time terrorists hear our candidates, largely liberals, say we are losing the war and compete with each other on who would withdraw first from Iraq, it emboldens terrorists to believe they are winning.

So we know that Obama spent some time as a child at a terrorist training school.
From “The Raw Story“:
Fox News Channel’s morning program Fox & Friends pointed to a report on Friday that Sen. Barack Obama had attended a Muslim ‘madrasa’ while living in Indonesia as a 6-year-old child.
Host Steve Doocy went on to highlight Obama’s middle name, Hussein, and questioned whether Obama was indoctrinated in extremist Muslim doctrine.
The YouTube of that exchange “is no longer available”. Interesting
The good news is that Mitt Romney is making a come back in California today. Let’s just hope that our voice will be heard loud and clear on Super Tuesday. This country wants Mitt Romney.
