Someone emailed this to me. It was erroneously attributed to Dr. Charles Krauthammer. However, the points made I think are good ones.


1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be
underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's
very hard to know what's behind the mask. The taking down of the Clinton
dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand
what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a
way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position,
while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch
what he DOES!

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to
make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including
dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as
the public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income
redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to
model the USA to Great Britain or Canada.

4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and
NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the
auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The
cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for
FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program,
because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type
single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to
control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada. God

5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one
around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and
run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't
work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left
secular progressive radical, who is bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a
moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does,
not what he says.

6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States, but
more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to
orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their
agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in
Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an
imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation
that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has
chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will
not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame
all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the
future. He has a huge ego, and he is a narcissist.

8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another
like him. Many conservatives believe Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl
(except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party.
Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and
intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if
she is to be a serious candidate in the future (although her early December 2009 poll numbers had her at 46%, just ONE point behind Obama's 47% approval rating). We need to return to the
party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong
national defense, and state's rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are
spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation,
depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity.
The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their
agenda.. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the
huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package. These were
trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to
placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear
and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding
on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the
mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won
this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept
back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's
between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I
hope this gets you really thinking about what's
happening in Washington and Congress.

Do yourself a long term favor, send this to all who will listen to an
intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children's
futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC,
and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of
us to take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and
