- "Extolling the death penalty and gun "rights" in the last Western nation that still kills prisoners and the worst one for killing in the streets?"
- "Voting for the Bush administration's wiretapping license and pledging to expand the failed faith-based welfare program, even to the extent of letting grant recipients discriminate in hiring if their good book tells them so?"
- "Renouncing one associate or putative associate after another for remarks that aren't Obama's fault -- and more often than not, except in the eyes of the Republican wolf pack, aren't wrong?"
Carpenter missed a couple of the big ones, including backing down on his commitment to abide by federal campaign spending limits and the sudden shift in his Iraq policy (who said anything about bringing all the troops home in 18 months?). Look, anyone who writes an auto biography wherein it is impossible to discern where the truth ends and the fiction begins cannot be trusted. Obama is a narcissistic, self-serving politician who will always do what's best for himself. As long as he can count on about half of the American people to select a president the way they choose the American idol, he'll probably become our next president. We can thank the liberals never-ending quest to dumb down Americans for that through our broken education system.
