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?
I might side with you there, those 2 things are pretty lame... i don't see anything comparable to hitler as of yet, and comparing him to the
anti-christ... well... mabye... but anyone that is saying that cannot be serious...
Barack Obama's middle name is Hussein...Like Saddam's last name.
Barack Obama is muslim.
Whats wroung with stating someones middle name, you can tell quite a bit about middle names... for instance, someone with the middle Name Hussein...
what would you guess about that person... that they are from Ireland, or somewhere in the middle east... It also tells about a familes liniage... So
when people see the Middle name Hussein, it should set off an alarm in thier head, not to lynch the man, but to at least resaerch it, find where the
name comes from, who he is named after, who named him... ect... these are things that a thinking person would be intrested... Also, wanting to know
the religion of someone isn't an offendible offense... I can't find an audio clip of him stating, "i am a cristain, i love god' or 'Allah
achbar'... so it could go either way...
Barack Obama's former preacher is saying things I disagree with.
Not just his former preacher, but close associate for over 20 years... this isnt like he met the guy at a party and talked for 15 mins, this is one of
his closet people, not knowing who someone is, and what thier views are, it is reasonable to look at the peoples friends and associates... Way before
the Youtube videos surfaced of this guy, and even before you were registared on these fourms, We at ATS was looking into this guy and this church...
we knew that he was a black-supremiscist, but we didn't know that he was a rabid anti-american preacher... before i heard ANYTHING from any other
media source, ATS was onto this guy, so when the sotry broke, we weren't surprised here... well kinda suprised, but we knew that this guy was not
someone that would be considered a good decent american.
People need to look into and investigate the people that these canidates associate with. Wright is only the tip of the iceburg... Obama has more
people that will grab the attention of the MajorMedia eventualy...
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.
attacking his supporters is just childish... mabye some people are becoming fringe Obamaites... but i wouldn't call them a cult... People ARE loving
to say he brings change, and upwards of 90% of the people i have personaly talked to, cannot name anything that he has introduced into legislation
during his terms, or outline any of the plans that he is planning to implement, not knowing what your canidate stands for is not a good thing...
People are voting for Barack Obama because he's black.
And... what about this fact do you dis-agree with...
Barack Obama's wife said 'For once in my adult life, I'm proud of my country'.
Yes, she did say that... what did she mean by saying that... thats debatable...
Barack Obama doesn't put his hand over his heart.
Barack Obama hasn't been wearing a lapel pin.
Thats right, he didn't, and sometimes he doesn't put his hand over his heart... its his choice and his alone... its not Law to do, just his choice,
like this guy i knew in high school, he Hated America, he named was Death-Metal-Dave, and everyday when we had to say the pledge of alligence, he
would just stand up, and say nothing, and keep him hands at his side...it was just his choice... just like Obamas... Only Death-Metal-Dave was a Nazi
that hated Everyone... and Obame wants to be the POTUS...but at least they can share thier unpatriotism with each other when the Pledge of Aligence,
or the National Anthem is being sung...
Barack Obama is too inexperienced.
So experience is not something that you would consider when choosing a person to run the Untied States... would someone with experince at the McDonlds
be just as good as someone who has spent 30 years inside the workings of goverment...
Barack Obama grew up overseas.
... yea... so... knowing where someone grew up, and lived is important when trying to think of the life experience of someone... Like, if someone
lived in a Muelsum country, and attended a Muelsm school... would you not want to know that, would that be something that didn't matter, that during
the most influencial years of someones life, they were in a foreign country, in a forgien culture... i would think the upbringing of someone would
effect the decisions that person is going to make in thier life...
Barack Obama said 'Cling to guns and religion'.
Yes he did... and... the question is what does that mean, and what was he meaning when he said it...
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.
Heres another quote that i found troubleing, mabye you missed it, or just agreed with him... "I dont want to let my daughter have the punishment of
haveing a child"... now what does that mean... I dislike that statement 100 diffrent ways... one more... "Kingdom right here on Earth"... Obama
stated he wants to create a Kingdom on Earth... what is he refering too...
So, what's my point? Look at the above arguments. They're ridiculous, each and every one of them.
Mabye 3 or 4 of the thing you mentioned are ridiculous, and none of them are being presented as argument points AGAINST Obama...
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?
Now this is where you lost me, you went from questioning other people questions, to an attack on your canidates opponent.. Basicly, it seems that you
want Obama to get a free pass because he is running against a Clinton...
WAKE UP PEOPLE AND THINK ABOUT WHY YOU THINK WHAT YOU THINK!!!
I think everyone should recive the same treatment... none of the Remaining MAJOR canidates or president are very strong form a Patriotic
Even though i HATE Juan McCain, he at this point is a far better option then either of the 2 democratic canidates... and that is a depressing
situation for the American People.
If your tired of the Treatment that Obama is getting, just stop watching the News...
