Oh God, I'm so worn out of all this anti-Obama BS that's going on currently.
Let's take a look at some of the arguments made by people who oppose Barack Obama, but don't happen to weigh-in THEIR presidential candidates:
Barack Obama has good oratory skills, just like Hitler.
Barack Obama has been uniting people, is he the antichrist?
Barack Obama's middle name is Hussein...Like Saddam's last name.
Barack Obama is muslim.
Barack Obama's former preacher is saying things I disagree with.
Barack Obama's supporters are glossy-eyed and zombie-like.
Barack Obama's supporters are like a cult.
Barack Obama preaches 'Change', yet people can't name anything he'd be changing.
People are voting for Barack Obama because he's black.
Barack Obama's wife said 'For once in my adult life, I'm proud of my country'.
Barack Obama hasn't been wearing a lapel pin.
Barack Obama is too inexperienced.
Barack Obama grew up overseas.
Barack Obama doesn't put his hand over his heart.
Barack Obama said 'Cling to guns and religion'.
Ok, this is all I can think of at the moment, so if you think of any I missed, please feel free to mention it. So, what's my point? Look at the above arguments. They're ridiculous, each and every one of them.
When do these questions and issues become more important than a candidate who has a VERY strong record of lying for the past 35+ years, wants to force everybody to pay for health care under risks of penalties, flip-flops on issues to gain more votes, therefore proving to be even more phony, and has demonstrated that she'll not only lie and CHEAT, but mislead the public?
Or when do these issues gain more precedence than a candidate who's voting record is the most similar to Bush's policies as any other senator? Someone who also flip-flops constantly and lies, and is supporting a 100 year war? Someone who votes AGAINST medical treatment for children or medical assistance to Katrina victims. Someone who would continue, almost exactly the same 8 years we've already had to deal with.
When do the above anti-Obama arguments become more important than the other things I've mentioned? This is getting ridiculous. Do people not care about the issues or honesty of the candidates, and now just whether someone has good oratory skills or wears a lapel pin?
WAKE UP PEOPLE AND THINK ABOUT WHY YOU THINK WHAT YOU THINK!!!
