Removing Senator Obama’s Facade
The Senator’s self-described consistent opposition to the Iraq war is reflective either of a faulty memory, or of a readiness to prevaricate.
Read Obama’s War, by Peter Wehner, on the Commentary Magazine website.
In addition to the variance between the facts and what Senator Obama repeatedly proclaims in his campaign, there is much reason to question his judgment.
A couple of metaphors spring to mind.
Senator Obama, when details of his record are examined, turns out, like the Great Oz in the Wizard of Oz movie, to be not a great and powerful figure, but just an ordinary little man with a big megaphone. Another image is the chameleon changing its coloration depending upon the circumstances in which it finds itself.
