The smoking picture was a fake, too.

In fact, in his recently-released medical records, his doctor writes:

The Illinois senator has smoked intermittently over the years, Scheiner wrote in the overview, but is now "using Nicorette gum with success."

It would be short of retarded to cut our nukes. We might as well say "hey world we are unarmed, comein' get us!!" How does he think radical countries like Iran, North Korea and, Afghanistan would do? They would flippin attack us the first chance they got and "wipe" us off the planet. The last thing we need to do mid-steam is become some hippy peace loving country (not that it would be a bad thing per se) We have too many enemies.

Yeah, I agree. It makes me think Obama's main goal is to promote policies that will make his professors at Harvard smile.

I honestly don't think he would do anything so stupid, but who knows?

I don't know. He's already done stupid things - he cuddled up to a racist reverend - yet denounced his own grandmother. That should say LOADS about the man.

Not to mention how he has said he wants to sit down with our enemies and "talk." I wonder what would have happened if we would have tried to sit down with Hitler and talked? I'm pretty sure not a damn thing would have changed.

My mother and I were talking about Osammie this morning. I called to tell her that a show was on the History channel about the Revolution. I told her I was the community leader for GOOOH, which I have never told her. She got a little freaked out. Then I explained to her if we want change in this country people are going to have to be radical and take matters into their own hands.

We talked about another show I had just switched from about Hitler. My father was in WWII so I thought she might want to see it. She said she had seen enough about him and didn't want to see it.

Then she said "you know who else I'm sick of seeing and hearing about? Obama." This is a lady who isn't into politics but can see (thanks to the history she has been through) that Obammie is a marxist and would ruin this country. She went on to say she is fearful what would happen if he did become the POTUS. Then she also said the people that are supporting him are illinformed or either brainwashed.

I love my mom, she is dang smart!! She liked him at first then all I had to say is "listen him closely next time he is speaking. He's a socialist, do you really want that for your grandkids?" Done deal!

His political campaign advisor is Zbigniew Brzezenski, a prominent member of the Trilateral Commission, that's reason enough for me not to like him.

I'm a Ron Paul supporter.

The intel at the time of the vote for the Iraqi war was enough to substantiate the invasion.

Let's be intellectually honest about this and say WMDs were crap from the moment they were frist mentioned. I supported the invasion and I thought WMDs were a waste of time. There was enough justification without them.

You can't blame Hillary for voting for the war based on the intel at the time,
see above. But, this

because we NOW all know the intel was fabricated.
is true.

Obama has voted to continue to fund the war, now that he is in the senate, so he is just as guilty as Hillary in supporting the Iraqi war.

That tends to be a "devil and the deep blue sea", "rock and a hard place", "damned if you do..." situation. BUT, Obama is being intellectually dishonest to claim opposition to the war while funding its continuation.

As far as Hillary's statement about arriving under sniper fire,

My biggest problem with Hillary. I know I've remembered things vivdly differently to how they happened, but I expect a leader with the power of POTUS not to have such an, shall we say, excitable imagination. However,

How is this worse than Obama's claim that his uncle "was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps".

It isn't. Or is it. I'm not going to defend Hillary and bash Obama, I'm intellectually highly uncomfortable with her repeated use of the sniper fire statement (and Chelsea tacitly supporting it after quietly, but effectively coming out against the "iron my clothes" jerk and the press' failure to give it due coverage compared with a hypothetical, say, "pick my cotton" or "shine my shoes", eg, being shouted Obama's way), but Obama is being more than intellectually dishonest to spread this crap. Obama CLAIMS to be an educated man. How educated do you have to be to know Auschwitz was in Poland? How young do you have to be NOT to know Poland was a communist country during the Cold War? How hard is it to put two and two together and come up with "The Russians "liberated" Poland"? How hard is it for an "educated" man not to know that the Western Allies and the Russians met at the Elbe River? In Germany? AFTER the Red Army surrounded Berlin, the German capital? And therefore no American forces, black or otherwise, liberated even one square inch of Polish soil? (and Barack, if you don't know this, America doesn't need you as President).

I would say he is equally culpable as Hillary and

Add to this Obama's claims he didn't know about Wrights racists statements,

any such claims are, in my headspace, met with incredulity equal to that of McLellan hearing W declare no positive memory of coc aine use.

The UN would not pass a resolution condemning the attack. What would most likely happen is that we would use our CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS to bomb whoever attacks us back to the stone age. You DO know that we have those, right? I'm not saying we need no weapons, I'm saying that we need no weapons that destroy a chunk of the planet for years and years and is GUARANTEED, via fallout, to kill civilians, scores of them.
If we dismantled our nukes tomorrow, and N Korea nuked us (so unlikely it's amazing), we would then proceed to carpet bomb them. In fact, we have more than enough conventional munitions to drop a bomb on every square meter of the country. Why do we need additional deterrant? Is that somehow not enough?

I will be honest. One of the main reasons I am an Obama supporter is precisely because of his lack of experience with washington politics. I want someone in office who is somewhat unaware of how to play the game. Naivitee can be a virtue when the current paradigm in american politics has f#**ed this country up so badly. I want someone that doesn't understand that you have to play ball with lobbyists, the military industrial complex and power mongers. I want someone that doesn't know any better. I want the corrupt system of political raketeering broken. Maybe Barak Obama will do this. It's not a certaintity, but it's the best chance we have had in recent decades.

And on a side note no one says that you can't bring up race and spouses etc. but if you are going to sink to that level expect to feel the heat from people that expect a more mature debate with regards to the issues. Obama detractors actually complaining that Obama supporters hit back when they say idiotic things about him being hitler or a muslim yada yada. If you can't handle the retaliation then don't say dumb things. It's ironic that Obama detractors bring up irrational bs and then cry foul when they are taken to task for it. You can in fact take issue with anything you like about the candidate, no one is stopping you, just don't be suprised when you are called out on your "infantile" statements.

He is something different and that alone even in light of his lack of experience is worth taking a chance on given where our current politics have brought us to...multiple wars, rampant corruption, loss of respect in the world. In retrospect I would have rather had any average unexperienced american as our last commander and chief instead of the insanity that "fortunate son" George has brought us. I am willing to roll the dice and take my chances with Obama. I have lived the alternative for the past 8 years.

Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely

An observation that a person’s sense of morality lessens as his or her power increases. The statement was made by Lord Acton, a British historian of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

In my opinion, all of our politicians - Republican / Democrat are different sides to the EXACT SAME COIN. We the people are being led to believe we have a choice but in reality, we have no choice. Read David Icke's Global Conspiracy.

Many people can't or won't understand that the people who hold power positions in our governments don't play by the same rules the rest of us poor working smucks play by.

Because YOUNG Americans have been dumbed down, and fed revisionist history lessons, they are told Obama is the NEW GENERATIONS JFK.

Remember the talk about how elegant he is, and how well spoken? Just like JFK!.....PEUK!
They are so stupid, that the propaganda machine running his campaign, introduces him at campaign rallies as, "Here's your ROCK STAR: BARRACK OBAMA!"
Because young American youths have been brain washed that inter-racial relationships are OK, teenage white girls swoon and scream over Obama as if he were their Love God! Which is exactally what his ministers of propaganda want! Dreamy eyed teens trying to influence their parents vote.
Since the American Media is by and large run by JEWISH interests, it makes no since that the said media, keeps giving him pass after pass, for his glaring shortcomings. And lack of experience!
It also explains why Hollywood is falling all over itself to help polish Obama's star...with celebrity endorcements. Jews run Hollywood.

Now, since he has said he'd talk to, and negotiate with our enemies, many of which are Israel haters, I cannot understand the why he'd be their man?
Unless, it is a reverse psychological game they are playing to ensure McCain wins, who is a war hawk, and committed to the Middle East War!
Many Jews vote I just don't know.

Obama is not a skull and bones member, a Washinton D.C. player,or a Bilderberg I don't see how he'll win...without their backing.

Both Barrack and his wife, seem to be very pissed off Millionaire RACIST coons, who hate the middle class, and think that they are for some reason, Black Royality! Both are arrogant as hell, and think nothing applies to them, and they don't have to answer hardcore questions from the press corp.

Barrack Obama has made a list of dozens of things he has said NO ONE can bring up in his rallies, or at debates...which is censoring.
Some of these include, No longer mentioning his middle name, No more attacking his wife for the remarks she makes, no more remarks about his religious views, or the church he attended, which he just resigned from,
and he is just a junior senator from Illinois, WHO IN THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS? If this guy is elected President, watch out!


AND YES, his off the cuff remarks and statements are truly PUERILE.....

The election process is corrupted and broken. Time to revolt, and time to take back America for it's citizens, and not Special Interest Run like it is now...

I thought you wrote a very decent post, but I wanted to point out that the one of the big reasons GW was elected was that he was an outsider, his lack of experience with Washington politics was touted as a good thing. GW was supposed to change things for the better. My observation of Obama, and research into his positions tells me that his outsider approach will not be any better than GW's.

I thought the nineties were great, and that Bill Clinton did a great job of running our country, and I think that Hillary will essentially do essentially the same quality of job. Maybe after we get someone in with the experience to bring us back to the prosperity of the nineties, we can try something a little more experimental.

no way! I am a republican, or was. This deciever cheated his comrades at arms during his luxury stay in Hanoi during the Vietnam ridiculum.

Luxury stay, huh? Want to explain that? Rationally and without spitting.

He allowed his father's political clout to afford him friendly treatment as a POW.

Garbage. His father's political clout? Get a clue. His father was CINCPAC and personally ordered B-52 raids on Hanoi. Raids that could have killed his son.

Yes, he was beaten badly after he crashed his 5th airplane and taken as a prisoner.

How many 'planes did Douglas Bader crash? How many 'planes did Eddie Rickenbacker crash? How many planes did Jan Nowotny crash? Adolf Galland? Jimmy Thach? Jimmy Doolittle?

He was taken prisoner after being shot down.

He is clearly a traitor;

Clearly. He volunteered for service and was nearly crippled by it. Is Ron Kovac also clearly a traitor? John F Kennedy? They all volunteered for service. So did Audie Murphy, Jimmy Stewart, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

Unlike John Wayne, Dan Quayle, George W Bush and Dick Cheney.

go to the library and look around on the internet and you will agree.

Have done. Don't.

He let folks like my father, and the rest of the real men and women in 'Nam who served loyally and with honor, down.

How? By refusing to leave the Hanoi Hilton out of sequence when given the chance? Or because he made the "black air pirate" speech under coercion? Or because you bought that crap about the Forrestal fire?

Do your research and you will agree that he is not a person that is electable as well.

Do yours.

So who do we vote for? OK, you go vote for Obama based on "the issues". And you go vote for a loud and semi-criminal "experienced" woman who has a chip on her shoulder the size of Texas, no really, go ahead. And those of you who vote for the traitor and have not done the research, well, then shame on you.

Again, what research?

You have lots of white people voting for him just to cure their "white guilt" because lots of whites feel guilty about the whole slavery thing. Though none of them will admit to you that's why they are voting for him.

If what you say is true about white guilt, then Alan Keyes would be in the White House !

Think about it.

$30 Billion for AIPAC so they don't kill him ?

Nice payoff.

Ron Paul, JFK, Jesse would tell AIPAC they are on their own, go recruit more Evangelicals and flip them into Israeli Firster NeoCon Zionist bent on Nuking Muslims that want off oil.... Iran exports crude, has little refined oil to run country.....need nuclear power USA.

Iran should contract T.Boone Pickens to built giant windmill farms that put out 2x a nuclear plant.

Then Colin Powell can hold a vile of air , and lable it a threat to Israel LOL !
