To the editor:

In response to the Mrs. Shelia Richardson:

C-Span? Just mentioning C-Span you insulted the reader! Mrs. Richardson, maybe you should get your head out of that May, Texas, sand and educate yourself. We have every right to question our leaders’ beliefs and religious values! Only a fool would not do that!

Before you start hammering on people, I have personally known Mr. Woolery for several years and can attest to the fact he really is a “real Christian!”

Barrack Obama is a “real Christian?” What? Could you please give us what your definition of what a “real Christian” is? Let’s get this straight, shall we? His father was a black African Muslim from Kenya. His mother was a white American atheist from Kansas. His father deserted his mother when he was only 2 years old and went back to Africa.

Fact: he has never held a productive job or received a paycheck that was not government-funded and/or taxpayer supported.

Fact: he entered politics at the state level and then the national level, where he is a rookie to say the least.

He is proud of his “African heritage.” (A guy who got a white girl pregnant and deserted her.) Where is the pride in his “white heritage?” (A mother who flaunted convention and did not believe in God.)

He belongs, and has belonged for over 20 years, to an “Afro-centric” church in Chicago that hates whites, hates Jews, and blames America for all the world’s perceived faults. You can’t tell me that you’re a part of something for over 20 years and not know what is going on.

Who is “the lazy” falling for here? He repeatedly defended the pastor, his church and the members who cheered after hearing vitriolic tirades against America. What does your C-Span have to say about that?

He could not confront his pastor but he wants us to believe he can confront terrorism! Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor from laughing so hard.

Fact: During his very limited time in the Senate, this rookie has somehow managed to obtain the No. 1ultra liberal voting record out of the 100 members. He has consistently voted for bigger government and higher taxes. He has voted for big entitlements and legislation that would severely curtail America’s ability to fight terrorism and to protect our borders and our national interests around the world.

That, Mrs. Richardson, is not rumors. It is public voting records that can be obtained and viewed by any U.S. citizen that has a clue! You might want to check in on that.

The truth is that he hopes no one will put the pieces together.

Let me end this by saying, my advice to you, ma’am: open your mind as you research who would be the best leader for our country. Try to get past those tired old talking points and educate yourself. Turn off C-Span and tune into a real news station. Gauge for yourself America’s perilous condition. There is more to a democracy than turning this country over to a “hasn’t-come-out-of-the-closet- yet” Muslim.
