The OP's attitude is precisely why I not only will not vote for Barack Obama, I will also do all I can to make sure he isn't elected. Remember, its
not only Republicans who are against him, over half of the Democrats who voted in the primary didn't vote for him and a large portion will not vote
for him in the fall.
Barack Obama defeated:
The most famous female political figure of our time
Arguably the most well-connected and powerful political team since the Kennedys
The undisputed King of Democratic fund raising, Bill Clinton.
The initial attack of Rebulicans with Rush Limbaugh’s “Operation Caos”.
A virtually unkown, black, junior senator with an arab sounding name out fund raised, out organized and out campaigned the most powerful Democratics
in the country. But, you won’t vote for him because of my attitude? What did he need, 100% of the vote to satisfy you?
The condescending, bullying tone isn't helping your candidate.
I’m not posting because Barack Obama is “my candidate”. I’m posting about my dislike for Republicans who are trying to make us believe that
after an impartial look at the candidates, they will reluctantly vote for John McCain because Obama “Scares” them.
Answer these questions for me:
- Do you believe we have a right to occupy Iraq for 100 years if we choose?
- Do you believe Americans are so important that we have a right to torture others to protect ourselves?
- Do you believe it’s better to bomb Iran than to diminish the stature of the Presidency by having direct talks?
- Do you believe that Separation of Church and State should be suspended to protect marriage from evil gays?
- Do you trust the co-author of an immigration bill written against the will of the American people.
- Do you agree that FEMA, FDA, FAA, DHS are all broken agencies and do you believe McCain is the one that will rid these agencies of the Bush
appointees that ruined them?
My intent is to offend only those hypocrites who are using deceit, fear mongering and divisive politics to accomplish their agenda. If you answer yes
to the questions above, you will be offended by me. If you answered no, I doubt your are.
You see, we aren't so much afraid of an inexperienced Senator as we are a leader who has followers who are easily unhinged and think they know more
about how this world works than people twice their age.
So you don’t vote the man or woman, you vote based on their supporters? A large majority of McCain supporters voted for Bush (twice) in the past.
Is that the group whose judgment you trust? Age doesn’t equal wisdom. Let me tell you how the world works, military men are prone to seeking
military solutions to diplomatic problems. And, truth is what you afraid of is losing. Let me help you get over that fear, McCain has lost already.
Just look at turnouts during the primaries.
