Style vs. Substance

Here's the bottom line:

When our country elects an individual to govern our nation, what criteria does one consider?

From some of the feedback I hear after these debates, you'd think that because B. Obama is such an "eloquent" and "smooth" talker, he is the best choice.

Let me say one thing: style is not what's introduced into bills and charisma is not the stuff that decisions are made of.

Whatever substance a candidate has, that is what will factor into how they run a country.

Big Smiles Biden and Land O' Lakes Obama may make for impressive fashion designers, if style is your thing, but I'm thinking issues, policy, judgement, and character are more of an important matter when the direction of a country is at stake.

Vacuum Ripe for Filling
(please copy and paste this link to watch the video listed above. while I don't totally buy into conspiracy theories, I had trouble embedding the video from YouTube, even though I followed all the normal steps to post a video to a blog. Who at YouTube doesn't want me posting this video?)

Disclaimer: I am not proposing or saying that Obama is the anti-Christ. I don't have the capacity or authority to do so. However, I am alarmed at the atmosphere I see around me today. With wars being fought in many nations, with our economy close to ruins, with many families and marriages facing the breaking point, people are in a desperate place. One of the side effects of this situation is the vacuum created for someone to come along and be the focus of people's hope. A sort of savior, if you will. What's seen in this video is one example of the type of false hope I'm referring to. There are other videos of a similar nature, showing a level of faith unfathomable for a mere human to live up to. Obama has an impossible mantle placed on his shoulders by the expectations of so many people.

While this atmosphere is scary and even downright creepy, I see it as an opportunity for people to seek and find a true answer to their troubles. In this time, people looking for hope and someone to worship can look past the confines of our earthly realm and see into eternity. Jesus is the only One worthy of praise and the only One who can bring hope, happiness, and freedom.

Palin - Great Job

I thought Sarah Palin held her own (and how!) tonight in the debate.

She did an awesome job and I really enjoyed how thoughtful, at ease, playful, and knowledgeable she was.
