When All Else Fails, Scare the Public About Obama

It appears that the Republicans' only hope is to feed the doubts many citizens have about Barack Obama's ability to lead. Here are a few recent examples, which are but a fraction of what's available:

From American Thinker:
Obama's Craftiness, by Ed Lasky. Barack Obama is one crafty fellow, reaping political success out of career that got precious little done.
Emperor Obama's New Clothes, by James Lewis. What I want to know is, how did Hans Christian Andersen know about Barack Obama more than a century ago? Because Obama is straight out of Andersen's classic fairly tale, The Emperor's New Clothes. Old Hans Christian, who lived in Denmark from 1805 to 1875, had Obama's number down pat.
Why I'm Thanking God for Obama, by Kyle-Anne Shiver. As so many have noted, 2008 is not an ordinary American election. Rather than two people with different policy positions vying for the President's job, we have one man who understands he's a mere mortal like the rest of us, and one man, who seems to think he is a god.
Recycling Jimmy Carter, by J. Robert Smith. Barack Obama doesn't just talk about conservation, he practices it. In his thinking and proposals on energy, the Illinois senator has expertly recycled Jimmy Carter.

From Discover the Networks:
Barack Hussein Obama - a short biography.
Barack's World - a catalog of his past associations.

From Investor's Business Daily:
Young Obama's Red Mentor. ..the seeds of Obama's far-left ideology were planted in his formative years as a teenager growing up in Hawaii — and they were far more radical than any biography or media profile has portrayed.

From Opinion Journal [Wall Street Journal]:
Political Diary: Directional Drilling. Obama's flip-flop tests the Democrats' stance on energy.

Is the Press Actually Hurting Obama? by Carol Platt Liebau. The ironic net effect of the dinosaur media pushing a crisis atmosphere and preaching the need for change on the one hand and pampering Obama on the other is that the public may hesitate to take a chance on someone so inexperienced.
The Brangelina-fication of the Obamas, by Michelle Malkin. She tears into media efforts to portray the Obamas as a typical American family, an illusion that lacks even the redeeming feature of sincerity.
