Difference Between Character and Charisma

With Hussein getting the nomination yesterday, it’s got me thinking a lot about how he actually made it as far as he has. Is the American public so confused on real topics, so disgruntled, that it’s easier to just judge a candidate on his ability to appeal to the masses? I mean, it’s easier to understand when an individual is speaking your language, saying what you want to hear, than actually focus on topics that matter and can lead to confrontation.

I’d compare the democrat campaign trail this year as a herd of zebras, dazzling the American public with black and white stripes, to distract from the individual.  A voter can get lost in the stripes because they can’t focus on one and that one gets away.

That one would be Hussein and his ability to motivate people, draw huge crowds, yet still say nothing.  Meanwhile traditional news outlets hold him up as a minority leader, yet he truly stands for nothing.  Attend one of his many rallies and tell me one thing he stands for, besides hope and change.  I mean, I can preach hope and change, but does it really do any good unless there is actual character behind the charisma?  Does it do any good if there is no goal, specific topic on which to stand proud on either side of the fence?  What defines character, how well you say things, or how well you do things?

I’m afraid that Hussein is living in a delusional world, one that many of us grew up in and were sheltered by.  After all, if we say things enough they become true, if we want something enough, we’ll get it, right? Wrong!  The liberal ideal is what is corrupting us now and will get even worse if one gains control of the highest seat our country can offer.  Not everyone is equal and the government should not play the great equalizer.

Rush Limbaugh brought up a phenomenal point today in regards to Martin Luther Kings great speech.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

We are simply not judging Hussein on his character, which speaks volumes to how far we have come since MLK’s dream.  We are talking up his race, his religon, the way he speaks, the way he holds himself, but not on his character.  When bringing up his character, based on association with his preacher, we are shot down.  So again, what defines character?

I think we all know, but are afraid of the race card, because character takes a back seat.
