Obama's Political Stunt and The Great Lie

Barack Obama is finishing his overseas campaign swing. Obama was shamed into actually visiting war torn Iraq instead of railing against the war effort without visiting Iraq since JAN 2006. Back in May when John McCain suggested that Obama and McCain go on a fact finding mission to Iraq, Obama said he would not accept the offer and called the thought of going to Iraq a political stunt. Today Obama claims his great political stunt was already being planned prior to McCain's offer.

This is a strange sequence of events. First Obama says visiting our commanders on the ground was a political stunt. He had no intentions of going to visit the soldiers that guarantee his very freedom to lie to the American people. Yet when it became apparent that he was outfoxed by a veteran politician he claims that his trip was not a political stunt and that he thought of it all by himself. Obama's campaign Spokeswoman's exact words on May 28th were “A trip abroad is under consideration, but there are no plans at this point,”. Today Obama claims “He was telling me I was supposed to take this trip,” Obama said. “Although I’ve got to admit we had it planned before he made the suggestion.” If this is not an outright lie I do not know what is considered a lie. Obviously Obama is trying to cover his tracks for his lack of vision and leadership.

Obama lacked the vision to plan a trip to Iraq. He found it much easier to Monday morning quarterback from the comfort of his couch. Obama never intended to visit our soldiers on the ground. He found it easier to speak of the failures in Iraq without knowing the facts on the ground. While it is obvious that the surge has produced positive results Obama still fails to recognize our soldiers efforts.

Obama claims he is for improving veterans care and veterans benefits and yet fails to meet with our wounded soldiers during his overseas campaign stop. Obama found it much easier to lie about planning this trip, negotiating as if he were President, and speaking to 20,000 Europeans and claiming it was 200,000 than is was to visit our wounded warriors and heroes in Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. Obama grandstands on issues but offers nothing of substance. When presented an opportunity to show action Obama reverts to words. There is an old saying "actions speaks louder than words". We need to scrutinize Obama's words more closely and than search for action that display Obama really believes in his words.

The problem is that Obama is on all sides of all issues with his words. It is impossible to find actions to support his words because Obama has a habit of not standing for anything. Even this taxpayer paid campaign event showed how Obama will change his position depending on the audience. Obama had no prior plans before he had prior planning. Obama was against taking advice from military commanders before he was for taking advice from commanders, before he was yet again against taking advice. Obama is a corrupt politician that will say anything to gain power. Obama is an elitist that believes the American electorate is unintelligent. We need Obama to be up front and honest. Yet this political stunt displays more lies.

I will be filing a FEC complaint to Obama next Monday. Obama made this trip as US Senator yet it had nothing to do with senatorial duties and everything to do with a political campaign stop. Obama should have to pay the entire bill for this trip out campaign funds rather congressional taxpayer funds. I do not support Obama and do not feel I should be forced to fund this campaign trip. Everyone that is against Obama needs to file an FEC complaint. This is an obvious campaign stop.

I agree. Is there something particular we need to know about filing that complaint?
