Election ’08: Faith at the Polls

Barack Obama asks us to take a leap of faith tomorrow.

— We see his lack of experiencce and he says, “Trust me.”

— We see his liberalism and he says, “I’ll cut your taxes.”

— We see his radical pro-abortion record and he says, “I’ll cut the abortion rate.”

— We see him go along with the entrenched political corruption in Chicago and he says, “I’ll change Washington.”

— We see him as a traditional partisan, and he says, “I’ll reach across the aisle.”

— We see his America-hating friends, and he says he is a patriot.

For Sen. Obama to be a good president, he will have to go against everything he has stood for politically. That seems possible, I suppose, but not likely.

Unless you’re willing to take that leap of faith.
