Ok, fair enough, it's good to see that you CAN weed out much of the bull going on. So, what's left?
The preacher thing is nothing more than 'Guilty by Association', something that is wrong and unjust.
The change thing I've just addressed in my last post above this one.
The color thing, I agree with you.
The wife comment, I think, has been blown way out of proportion and looked at much too critically than it should be. It's a simple, commonly used
phrase that she didn't think about when she said. Even if it was true, big deal. All it means it that she's unhappy with the country, and I can't
blame her too much.
The inexperienced thing I've gone over so much. You can't say 'experience is good, so the more the better' without looking at what that
experience is. Plus, you need to consider the differences, and whether you think it's worth sacrificing a few years for a much more honest
character. Are you happy with how the country has gone with all these 'experienced' people, even though Obama has much more legislative experience
than Hillary, plus more time in the Senate?
Hand over the heart. Is that really an issue compared to what he's going up against? Really? What are you afraid the consequences of someone not
doing this might be in the White House?
The 'Clinging' thing, I agree was stupid, but to call it and judge it so harshly, to me, doesn't sound like you're considering his opponents
