Beaten to it, but as I'm no Obama fan, I feel I get to add my two cents...

Way to try and make light of some rather serious character flaws.
These, however, are more realistic and why Obama should not be POTUS and cannot be trusted:
1. Racist Radical Pastors (disowning them now - of course)
2, Refusing to Wear American Flag (wearing one now - of course)
Storm in a teacup. Find something real.
3, Friends with Domestic Bomber Ayres
Yes, and? When was the guy a domestic bomber?
4. Disowns his Church
Make up your mind. First you attack him for not disowning his religious associations, now you attack him for doing it. Doesn't make you look entirely
5. Racist Wife
6. In 1991 Pledged Allegiance to the Black Value System (bet he placed his hand on his heart for this one)
In 1991 I pledged undying allegiance to Victoria Bitter. So what. That was 17 years ago. He was 29 years old and had just graduated from uni. The
point here isn't that he pledged allegiance in opposition to the one for the nation, it's that he did it in opposition to his own mixed-race
heritage. A man who now, loudly and repeatedly, claims to be living proof of post-race politics previously chose to identify most strongly with only
one half of his racial identity and to do so publicly.
7. Choosing not to Place Hand on Heart during National Anthem
Big friggin' deal. Good God almighty but you Yanks make national crimes of the most trivial crap. Does he know the words? Does he sing them? Do
8. Muslim Upbringing
Utter garbage. Next you'll be saying someone who went to school with the Dalai Lama is suspect, what with all that heathen chantin' and a prayin'
to false idols and no-one can possibly be that
forgivin', it's just not Christian I tells ye...
9. Homosexual Sex Scandal
As real as "McCain started the Forrestal Fire" at this point.
10. Friendship with 16 Count Convicted Felon Rezko
Yes. Very disturbing. Perhaps also you should look at his friendship with Jim
and what it says about his committment to ending the "old way" of doing things.
11. Citizenship and Family ties to Kenya
So friggin' what. Bush's monetary ties are to Saudi Arabia, a slightly more dangerous prospect to the US economy. Do you know anything about Kenya?
Know who Jomo Kenyatta was? Daniel Arap Moi? The Mau Mau? Maybe Obama's citizenship of that former British colony and now Commonwealth of Nations
member means he's actually a closeted Monarchist and he plans to bring the US back under the Queen's heel... What, exactly, can Kenya do to threaten
12. Endorsement from Hamas
Right, so because someone else
said Obama's a good guy, that means he asked them to say it? Time named George W Bush as Man of the Year. In
'38 they did the same for Hitler. If Al Qaeda endorsed McCain that would mean what, exactly?
13. Not Enough Political Experience
Now you're talking about relevant stuff.
14. Votes Present more than Votes
So much for his "new way" of doing business...
15. Supports Killing the Unborn
Oh, Christ, would the bloody right-to-life crowd just take a hike already...
16. Ranked #1 Tax and Spend Liberal
Ah, yes, of course, now it's time for the right-wing dogma to come charging to the fore.
17. Campaign Promises that will Bankrupt the USA
As opposed to Bush, who has already
bankrupted the USA by spending its money on foreigners. God I love listening to Republicans yak on about
the evils of "big government" when it was Bush jr and his father's old boss who spent more on government than the Dems and Bush jr has ovrseen the
greatest enlargement of government since the Pentagon was first advertising in the positions available column.
FYI, it was a Democrat
who balanced the budget, genius.
18. Refusal to provide Birth Certificate as required for being POTUS
Quote the requirement.
