The campaign hits a few bumps in the road...

...but it rolls on just the same. Obama continues to make one gaffe or misstep after another, but it will likely have little effect; those who support him will do so no matter what; the only people he offends will be people who would not have followed him anyway.
First, the business of that silly fake presidential seal:
Obama Pulls New Presidential Seal
Succumbing to an avalanche of criticism, Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has apparently decided to back away from its trial balloon of a new presidential seal.
"That was a one-time thing for a one-time event," Robert Gibbs asserted to CNN about the rather intricately designed seal that made its debut last Friday.
The new seal was unveiled on Obama's podium when he spoke to a group of Democratic governors.
The Obama seal did include the American bald eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, but the resemblance ended there.
The Latin phrase "E Pluribus Unum," which translates to "Out of many, one," was replaced with "Vero Possumus," which translates to "Truly, we are able" � a rough translation of the Obama campaign slogan "Yes we can."
I had to do a double-take when I saw the seal with the high-school 'Latin' motto. 'Vero possumus'? What does that mean? My first thought was of rodent-like marsupials when I read it. In fact, my first thought was: is that the motto on the Great Seal of the Possum Lodge? Those of you who are familiar with the Canadian TV comedy, the Red Green Show, will know what I am talking about. See the Possum Lodge seal here.
As you can see, though, the Possum Lodge seal is barely more risible than Obama's, and the Latin is only slightly more silly: 'Quando Omni Flunkus Moritati' = 'When all else fails, play dead', with the emblem on the seal being a supine possum -- playing possum.
Actually I would vote for Red Green or any of the Possum Lodge guys before I would vote for either of the two 'major' candidates being thrust on us.
But Obama's blunders extend to more than just clumsy attempts at self-aggrandizement. I'm gaining a new respect for James Dobson here:
Dobson to Attack Obama for Distorting the Bible
Dobson deserves credit for being willing to call Obama on some of these things, as others tiptoe around and don their best kid gloves.
And there's this statement from Obama: Obama: America is 'no longer Christian'
''Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers," Obama said during a June 2007 speech available on YouTube.''
I suppose it could be argued that this is the standard rhetoric that is used by all public officials these days, the cliches about how we are a 'multifaith nation' with all paths leading to the same God, and so on. But if Obama thinks we can be a 'Christian nation' while not being 'just' a Christian nation, or that we can simultaneously be a Hindu nation, a Mohammedan nation, and whatever else, then he truly does not understand the faith that he claims to follow.
At the very least he could acknowledge that we have, to date, always been a predominantly Christian nation, and that our Founders, though many now say they were not all Christians, honored the Christian faith and based our laws and mores on Christian beliefs and values. We were a Christian nation without having an established state religion, but a Christian-based nation nonetheless. Now I suspect Obama is going to be doing his part in rewriting the history of this country to the specifications of the one world agenda.
This piece cites a Washington post article and a Pravda article, no less, on how Obama's possible election will 'make racism America's biggest problem.' Sadly, America's biggest problem at this point is race, though not what they are calling 'racism'. The mere fact that we have so many mutually antagonistic and basically incompatible peoples in this country, all nursing grievances against the historic majority Whites, is the problem. And the problem is, the majority population have had most of their natural racial consciousness and solidarity whipped out of them for the last half-century at least. Therein lies the insoluble problem. Yet for all the indoctrination which has been so heavy-handedly employed, people have still not completely knuckled under -- yet. The powers that be are getting rather desperate and impatient, and they are going all out to bludgeon us with the agenda, hoping to quash any stubborn opposition. The Obama campaign is, I think, designed exactly for this purpose. It's meant to force this issue center stage, and pummel us into submission, or force some kind of showdown in which it's hoped we will be brought to heel.
I can think of no other explanation for the mere fact that Obama, out of nowhere, is likely to be our next President, aided by the completely subservient media. The campaign has forced the racial issue into our faces so far, and we've still got almost half a year until election day. It will be a long several months ahead as we are bombarded with all this nonsense and propaganda.
Along these lines, blogger The Narrator at Signals from the Brink has an interesting take: he opines that the vast majority of White Americans don't believe the multicultural, egalitarian party line, and never will. He says that the reason for the apparent inertia of most of us on this question is that we just haven't taken it seriously heretofore.
Most Whites haven't, as yet, reacted strongly against multiculturalism because they don't see it as a truly serious threat at the moment (just a growing irritation).''
He says that most believe the situation is just something that can be easily reversed if and when we decide to call time on it. I agree with him that this attitude will make any such reversal harder and more costly as time goes on.
