TONY CAMPBELL COMMENTARY: Insanity In The Keyes Of Alan





H/T Booker Rising Blog -The moderate Republican takes issue with conservative activist Alan Keyes' recent claims about President Barack Obama:

"I have always thought Keyes was a bit unhinged but he has really lost all sense of reality in the video clip. Just in case you think I am joking… here are a few of the more unsettling thoughts offered by Keyes: 1) Barack Obama is the 'greatest crisis that this country has ever seen' 2) 'The United States of America will cease to exist' 3) Barack Obama is an 'abomination'. As a seminary graduate, the word abomination struck me as a bit harsh to define a person who was elected to public office.

According to Dictionary.com, the word means a person who is loathsome or disgusting. In terms of theology, the word is used to define people or actions that God hates. So to translate the meaning of what Alan Keyes said is that the President of the United States is loathsome, disgusting and hated by God. This type of rhetoric is in very bad taste and demonstrates what can happen when unstable people are given license to say whatever comes into their brain."

That sentence by itself sounds like Democrats, not Republicans.

Alan Keyes is brilliant and justifiably frustrated.The media purposely has kept you from knowing that there is a legitimate concern about Barack Obamas eligibility to serve as president.I would not have chosen those words but I dont disgree.Too much attention is being paid to his tone and not enough to his substance.Think about what he is saying...

I felt exactly the same as I listened to him speak. He is communicating the frustration that many feel, but are helpless to do anything about. There may be many things I disagree with Mr. Keyes about, but the lack of simple documents regarding Obama's birth, college records, registration for the draft, medical record, etc. make many people wonder "why not?" It gives the impression there is something to hide. There are probably other like Mr. Keyes who won't let these issues rest. Who is worse? Those like Mr. Keyes or those who are letting a person who is potentially living a lie, run the White House without question?
