I always wonder when politicians come out of nowhere and there's alot of hype surrounding them. Obama talks in platitudes and he never talks about specifics. I think this guy was put in a position to be Hillary Clinton's running mate. First, they were worried about Condi Rice and her popularity and there wasn't a prominent african american on the democratic side that could run with Hillary. Secondly, there's millions of women and african americans that don't vote that will vote just for the historic aspect of the situation.

I think there m.o. is very obvious but people who do see it have been marginalized as conspiracy kooks so when they point it out everyone just laughs. They pretty much destroy the opposition of the person they have chosen and then the media presents them to the public as someone who can change the world. They did it with Bush when they destroyed McCain in South Carolina. They did it with Hillary. I said at the time that Rudy will never run against Hillary because he would beat her and Rudy dropped out. I think the pathway is set for Hillary to be President no matter what. Obama's was a long shot when he first entered the race and then his opponents got in trouble because of scandal and that paved the way for Obama. He then gets a plush speaking role at the democratic convention and then he gets the gift of Alan Keyes. Oprah and every media outlet greets him like it's a coronation and he's been in the senate for two years and he hasn't done anything but talk good. The powers that be know they need to energize the african american base in order to get Hillary elected. Obama even said that he's suspicious of the hype. They needed a high profile african american in the spotlight to combat Condi Rice. I have always thought the powers that be manipulate both democrats and republicans that will support their agenda. President Bush 41 laid it out, it's about a New World Order. Bush said there should be a set of laws that govern the world. Will they be democratic laws, socialist laws, fascist laws? Who knows, but their leading the masses somewhere.

I will leave with a couple of things Hitler said that actually are true.

He said, people are generally stupid, if you repeat the same slogans again and again the people will eventually believe it.

He also said, it's a fortunate thing for governments that people don't think.

The media and the government know this well. They throw around the term the american people like it's going out of style. The american people want this or the american people want that and the american people fall for their nonsense everytime.

If Hilary Clinton is elected President, I will cheerfully take part in any kind of violent revolution that might form. She would destroy the sovereignty of America, no doubt sell the rest of our nuclear secrets to China, make us a minor state of the United Nations, and basically destroy the fabric of American culture and society.

Clinton was a great President economically speaking, but as far as keeping America American, he sucked. Hilary would probably be even worse. At any rate, I don't foresee her getting elected.

when i read that i expected the red stripe man to come out and say:
"HOORAY FOR BASLESS CLAIMS"

you have 0 evidence to support your claims
they are mere speculation

also, since when was there a coherent american culture?
i live in st. louis
the culture here is quite different than the culture in boston, houston, tampa, boulder, etc
even kansas city has a different culture, and thats a city in the same state

Ah, so that would explain why all your posts sound hopelessly confused and indoctrinated with liberalism.

Just messing. The Clintons pretty much ushered in a lot of bad things. They really screwed up the education system with "feeling based learning". Clinton did sell nuclear secrets to China, it was a pretty big deal at the time. Not to mention political correctness and concern for the environment. All of these issues became a big deal during the Clinton years. Not necessarily only because of the Clinton factor, but it's all in the same time frame.

Quite frankly, I think Hilary Clinton is very scary. I can't imagine why she would want to be President. I can't think of one good thing that she would want to do. The Clintons are fans of globalization, and support eroding state sovereignty in favor of IGOs like the United Nations. This is not what's best for the United States of America.

Edit: grammar

Enough you two.

This thread is about Barack Obama and his position in politics. Not about political bickering, and not about members discussing each other. It will stop right now!

He's a good communicator.
That doesn't make one a good human, or a good leader.
But it makes people clap!

First time I heard his name, I remember thinking.
What a cool name, powerful sounding, a nice rhythm to it.
BarACK oBAMa. ALmost like a "product".
Marketable.

I guess he doesn't have much baggage. Not yet anyway.

Although there is something about a land deal, where he bought land from a
shady Fundraiser. Harry Reid can talk him through that one.

But then his middle name "Hussein", I'm sure Republicans will remind us of that continuouusly.

Too earlt to tell if even HE can survive the hype, without burning out..Or succumbing to a scandal. I can even see the Hillary Clan dredging up something to give his bandwagon a flat tire.

It should be interesting to watch.

Why does his popularity have to be attributed to either hype or calculated positioning? It is possible, you know, that's he's just a really genuine, honest, hopeful and wonderful guy who has drawn the attention of the people in this country who know that we are in desperate need of a change from the power-hungry, greedy, corrupt governmental leaders we've been dealing with for the past 5 years.

Besides all that, he's eminently electable!


Obama in 2008!
