Check out the attached article. It's amazing to see how bad these people want to win, and what theyu will stoop to in the attampt to win. First, we had Hillary with her fake balck accent while speaking at a black church. Now Obama wants to try and top her pandering efforts.


I have been telling Brody File readers for months that if Barack Obama becomes the Democratic nominee he will make a pitch to win over independent/moderate Evangelicals. Well, we now have evidence.

In Kentucky, he is making a direct appeal to Evangelicals with flyers that mention his conversion experience and they highlight a big old cross. Remember Mike Huckabee’s supposed subliminal cross in his Christmas campaign ad? Well, the Obama campaign ditches the subliminal and goes for the in your face cross. Look at the flyer

OF COURSE he's pandering! He's just like the rest of the politicians.
No hope. No change. No unity.

BTW - he's now wearing a flag pin .
Wonder if it has 57 stars on it!

Considering all the attention paid to Obama's church, it's not surprising that he'd try to win over moderate Evangelicals, considering that he is a moderate evangelical

The United Church of Christ, of which Barak Obama is a member, is a direct descendant of the Evangelical Synod of North America.

I fail to see how Obama's efforts to win over fellow Christians are "pandering", and John McCain's efforts to win over fellow Christians aren't

Of course all politicians are guilty of pandering, at least to some extent. However, we are talking about members of a particular party that have raised pandering to the level of an art, or is it a science with them? For example, does McCain change his accent when talking to different groups like we have video of hillary doing? Come on, you have to admit this does not leave a warm and fuzzy feeling (and we all know libs love to base decisions on their feelings) in your gut. And, OMG we have video of O(bs)ama saying he won't wear a flag pin, but now we have video of him wearing one. Some dem obviously stuck a wet finger in the wind and found out the previous comments turned a lot of people off. And since not supporting our flag is O(bs)ama's true belief, that means he's basically been caught lying in order get votes. Case closed.

So, before you try to disagree, look at what makes up the democrat party, a patchwork of special interest groups. So, it should come as no surprise that in order to gain the support of all of these groups dem politicians have to go to each of them and promise something different and sometimes conflicting with their previous promises. The best they can hope for is that no one pays close enough attention to say, "Hey, wait a minute ...". This has worked for them fairly well in the past, however, the trouble for dem politicians now is the internet age, where people can easily paste together samples of their pandering and show it for what it truly is.

Watch for this to be highlighted after hillary is handed the nomination in an "upset".
