Where is Obama? I Can't See Him!
Peter Keating is the famous character in the novel, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand who makes all his decisions based on the opinions of the person in front of him at the moment. He is incapable of holding on to a position or a principle for longer than it takes you to blink your eyes. He is all things to all people. Obama is the Peter Keating of this election. He sways and he waffles and he sidesteps and he gives "magnificent" speeches. But what he stands for? Nobody knows.
You can fool some people all of the time and you can fool all people some of the time but you can't fool everybody all of the time. Obama seems to think he can but he won't get away with even though he has a silver tongue (so they say). An American President has to stand for something. He has to have some kind of value system and the electorate will see that the emperor really does not have any clothes on.
He's like a zebra trying to camouflage, in this case, the fact that he has no principles to guide him. Do we want a man like this leading our beloved nation in these trying times?
