Anytime one is considering hiring someone for a job opening, the primary concern should be their qualifications for the job: do they have the necessary skill set to perform the task required, or will extensive, and expensive, (re)training be necessary for them to perform at the required level to make it worthwhile to even employ them. Noone is owed a job for which they are unqualified, regardless of what your college professor may have once told you. Thus, no truer words were written as when Thomas Sowell says:
For any politician, what matters is not his election-year rhetoric, or an election-year resignation from a church, but the track record of that politician in the years before the election.
That track record, that resume, is the critical thing that needs to be evaluated by all voters despite the rhetorical smokescreen Obama and his disciples would have you believe. Thus, Sowell further notes:
There is nothing more real than a man’s character and values. The track record of what he has actually done is far more real than anything he says, however elegantly he says it.
There is no office where the character and values of the person in that office matter more than the office of President of the United States. He holds the destiny of 300 million Americans in his hands and the fate of generations yet unborn.
There is much to be concerned about Obama’s track record that should shake even a Democrat if he is truly as patriotic as he claims to be. Read Dr. Sowell’s entire article for just a sampling. The office of the President of the United States is not the place you want to be doing on-the-job-training. There is an old axiom of common sense that doesn’t seem to be operative in the world view of Obama’s supporters: actions speak louder than words. Obama’s campaign has been one of words, words, words. His voting record, his resume, is where the actions are to be found, and where his heart and mind are to be truly read.
The wisest man ever to live proclaimed this same truth over a thousand years ago:
Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right. (Proverbs 20:11)
Only a fool depends solely on the words when the track record of actions is available for all to see. And red flags should be flying off when the words and the actions present a stark contrast. Hopefully enough of our fellow Americans will wake up from their drunken stupor and see clearly what that track record says of this candidate before it is too late.
