change is what you'll have left after Obama raises taxes.
Obama did vote against--and Clinton voted for--an amendment that would have placed a 30% cap on the interest rate that could be charged on any extension of credit. The amendment failed by a vote of 74 to 24 in 2005. When the amendment came up for a vote, Obama was standing next to Sen. Paul Sarbanes, D-MD, the senior Democrat on the banking committee and the leader of those opposing the landmark bill, which would make it harder for Americans to get rid of debt.
As for whether the 30% cap was too high, that's certainly a matter of opinion. Sen. Mark Dayton of Minnesota, sponsor of the amendment, said on the Senate floor that such a cap "is still consumer abuse" but is much better than rates of more than 300%, which he said were being charged by some loan operations in the country
The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know there's a reaction that's been been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that's just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it..." - Senator Barack Obama
As BH says above: do your research, people.
A former prisoner of war, who suffered torture in Vietnam, McCain has called for the US detention center in Guantanamo Bay to be closed and for torture to be banned. Last week, he criticized the US Supreme Court for "one of the worst decisions in the history of this country" after the court ruled that detainees should be allowed to challenge their detentions in US courts.

Open-minded skeptic, I think you need to stop drinking the Kool-aid. You're so open-minded that you are obviously gulliable.
So much factual material has been displayed here on ATS about Obama's blatent character short-cummings and across the Internet as a whole. Why do you think he has a 'rapid response team' to squlech this true but hindering information tainting his glass image?
I've never seen it so much where you can literally spell out the facts from A to Z about an Obama con-job and his supporters will still deny it. A state of denial for sure. How do they defend Obama? Often by insulting the person who brought to light these facts about Obama. Anyone who disses Obama, threatens his supporters Utopic vision and for this it strikes a nerve.
Obama supporters rarely present any factual information at all. It always end up in attacking the poster or going onto Bush about this, that and the other.
...to backing out of a signed pledge with regard to public funding to changing the Nation's Presidential Seal in an arrogant, disrespectful yet idiotic way, you still defend and support this man. He insults your intelligence.
"Would Obama lie to me?"
"Would Obama throw me under the bus to save his own image, like he did his Pastor, Tony Rezko and his other longtime friends"?
"Is Obama disrespectful to the United States?"
"Is Obama childish and arrogant, especially when he senses he is losing or not getting his way?"
"Would Obama piss in the wind and tell me it was raining?"
"Can Obama *really* identify with me or just pretend to? Afterall, he grew up in a rich White banking family in Hawaii?"
"Would Obama ever tell me something that I thought was true and then just turn around and go back on his word. Would Obama be a hipocrite?"
I think you should have answered "Yes" to many of these questions. If not, then you are truely brainwashed and have a weak mind.

Iraq had WMD - they were moved out well ahead of time before the US got there. Saddam knew we were coming, had up to a year to get rid of the WMDs. Saddam got help from Russia and China in doing so.
It's called an Exit Strategy. Every WMD program has one, especially the Russian one for which Saddam's WMDs were based.
Obama's flip-flops aren't just flip-flops, they're so bad, technically criminal! It's illiegal to alter the Presidental Seal in the manner he did and to fake a CoB while running for POTUS.
It will be interesting to see how else he can disrespect America and still have his Sheeple supporting him.
