Is Obama the pied piper?

To The Editor:

I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!

He came out of nowhere last year and announced his intentions to run for president. He had very little name recognition and jumped the gun and forced others to get into the race prematurely. Just think of all the money spent that could go to better use.

Now we are down to three persons; we know John McCain and certainly know Hillary Rodham Clinton, but Barack Hussein Obama Jr. - we know hardly anything about him!

He came out of nowhere, yet people are flocking after him like he was the Pied Piper of Hamlin. What does he stand for? Just change? His record in the Senate puts him far left of Hillary.

When people are asked what he has accomplished in the Senate, they can't come up with anything, except as one person said, he got elected!

I would like to know about his family. Why is nothing said about his white atheist mother? Where is she now; is she still living? What about his Muslim father and Muslim stepfather? How about his education in an Islamic school in Indonesia from ages 6 to 10 years?

What happened after that? Where did he live and get his schooling?

Shouldn't we know more of a person aspiring to be president?

His preacher-like speeches lead young people down the path, but do these people really know what he stands for and what he plans on doing once elected? It is like he is mesmerizing them. I would hope the people wake up and shake off the hypnotic effect of his speeches and promises.
